    • I came across this discussion recently and just wanted to give my experience of A Shade Greener that may help others regarding their boiler finance agreement.
       
      We had a 10yr  finance contract for a boiler fitted July 2015.
       
      After a summer of discontent with ASG I discovered that if you have paid HALF the agreement or more you can legally return the boiler to them at no cost to yourself. I've just returned mine the feeling is liberating.
       
      It all started mid summer during lockdown when they refused to service our boiler because we didn't have a loft ladder or flooring installed despite the fact AS installed the boiler. and had previosuly serviced it without issue for 4yrs. After consulting with an independent installer I was informed that if this was the case then ASG had breached building regulations,  this was duly reported to Gas Safe to investigate and even then ASG refused to accept blame and repeatedly said it was my problem. Anyway Gas Safe found them in breach of building regs and a compromise was reached.
       
      A month later and ASG attended to service our boiler but in the process left the boiler unusuable as it kept losing pressure not to mention they had damaged the filling loop in the process which they said was my responsibilty not theres and would charge me to repair, so generous of them! Soon after reporting the fault I got a letter stating it was time we arranged a powerflush on our heating system which they make you do after 5 years even though there's nothing in the contract that states this. Coincidence?
       
      After a few heated exchanges with ASG (pardon the pun) I decided to pull the plug and cancel our agreement.
       
      The boiler was removed and replaced by a reputable installer,  and the old boiler was returned to ASG thus ending our contract with them. What's mad is I saved in excess of £1000 in the long run and got a new boiler with a brand new 12yr warranty. 
       
      You only have to look at TrustPilot to get an idea of what this company is like.

    • Dazza a few months ago I discovered a good friend of mine who had ten debts with cards and catalogues which he was slavishly paying off at detriment to his own family quality of life, and I mean hardship, not just absence of second holidays or flat screen TV's.
       
      I wrote to all his creditors asking for supporting documents and not one could provide any material that would allow them to enforce the debt.
       
      As a result he stopped paying and they have been unable to do anything, one even admitted it was unenforceable.
       
      If circumstances have got to the point where you are finding it unmanageable you must ask yourself why you feel the need to pay.  I guarantee you that these companies have built bad debt into their business model and no one over there is losing any sleep over your debt to them!  They will see you as a victim and cash cow and they will be reluctant to discuss final offers, only ways to keep you paying with threats of court action or seizing your assets if you have any.
       
      They are not your friends and you owe them no loyalty or moral duty, that must remain only for yourself and your family.
       
      If it was me I would send them all a CCA request.   I would bet that not one will provide the correct response and you can quite legally stop paying them until such time as they do provide a response.   Even when they do you should check back here as they mostly send dodgy photo copies or generic rubbish that has no connection with your supposed debt.
       
      The money you are paying them should, as far as you are able, be put to a savings account for yourself and as a means of paying of one of these fleecers should they ever manage to get to to the point of a successful court judgement.  After six years they will not be able to start court action and that money will then become yours.
       
      They will of course pursue you for the funds and pass your file around various departments of their business and out to third parties.
       
      Your response is that you should treat it as a hobby.  I have numerous files of correspondence each faithfully organised showing the various letters from different DCA;s , solicitors etc with a mix of threats, inducements and offers.   It is like my stamp collection and I show it to anyone who is interested!

Hi

 

I was wondering if anyone can help regards to a court claim form I have received today from Aplins, via Northampton court.

 

The PoC is extremely vague and goes something like this.

 

The claim is for call and service charges due and unpaid as at today's date under a network services contract made between the claimant and the defendant.

 

The debt is allegedly for an outstanding orange bill.

 

I used to have an orange mobile to which the contract ended in April or May this year,

 

 

I called and noticed them to terminate at the end of the agreement period

and was advised to call back within a month should I change my mind,

 

 

I didn't and they failed to terminate my contract with them, still allowing the phone to be in service,

 

 

I didn't use the phone as I had a new contract,

they simply allowed it to continue,

 

 

I only knew this because a friend advised me my old number was still active.

 

 

They then cut off the phone roughly in November ?. Or October.

I don't know I hadn't used it.

 

 

I then recieved a letter from the court, this one today.

 

Firstly I shall acknowledge the documents and intend to defend,

do I now send a CRP 31.14 ?

 

 

As the PoC are vague what wouldn't need to ask for?

 

 

The bill was only ever around £39 and the whole amount is for £287.54.

 

Any help is appreciated

 

Thanks in advance

I am not quite sure whether a CPR request will be of any value to you for a mobile phone account, but others will advise.

 

Yes, do make sure you acknowledge within the time line.

Interesting reading, thankyou, seems their PoC is extremely vague. Looks like the CPR request relating to the contract they seem to mention, will be interesting to see what evidence they have considering the contract had expired.

Thanks again

Hi

 

I have been reading through the other posts and it seems my best option at this time will be to send a cpr 31.14

although it won't say much it will stipulate the contract terms and conditions

and should highlight that my contract ended in April so technically I don't owe anything.

 

I have included my letter as the PoS are vague I have very little to go from,

i have also seen a Cpr 18 been requested by not sure what that is.

 

Here is my letter below

 

[template removed - it says at the top of all template - please do not publish in the open forum.... - dx]

Hiya

 

Just a quick update,

still receive nothing from Aplins to which they have had ample time to respond,

my defense is required by tomorrow, which I am typing up now.

 

Do I just say that I contacted orange, who no longer exist to then speak to EE who would not disclose any information to me,

 

 

I have no idea why And then requested information from Aplins but not received anything ?

 

Thanks for your help

I'll have another look through the forum for defense help too

 

Thanks again

 

Ohh can I add to my defense that my contract with orange had ceased at the end of the agreement period, thus not being in contract ?

 

Thanks again
