    • 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!

Can anyone assure me that the District Judges are not influenced by minority religious/political groups

Hello everyone

 

You may think that I am a bit paranoid but I would like to ask your opinion and advice about a potential collusion case about a district Judge in the UK

 

My story is about a non-fault accident which I was involved in 2014 and eventually took the company who hit me as well as the management company who was acting on behalf of me based on breach of our contract.

 

Everything was all fine until the hearing date; on the day the defendants sent their counsels and the following is the summary of my experience with the judge (all bear in mind one of the defendant already admitted the fault and paid me the repair of my car - however the case was my broken digital device during the accident and my time off from work whilst my car being repaired)

 

It was a small claims court and the case was dismissed by the judge and I was asked to pay both counsels fees (inclusive of vat)

 

I was humiliated and I was questioned like in a police custody..., one of the counsel blatantly blamed me about lying however I had provided all the documents.

 

Here is my notes of concerns taken during the hearing

 

1 - the Judge admitted that he has not read the case during the pre-reading time which was allocated and paid by the claimant (the claimant was asked to pay an extra hearing fee on top of the claim fee)

 

2- due to the fact that the claimant is representing himself; the district Judge "Sh....h" asked the second defendant's counsel to represent the "claimant's case" the second defendant's witness statement was prepared by Mr "Iq...l"

 

3- District Judge told all parties that as the claimant was representing his case, whilst both counsels of the defendants (one of whom was sent by Mr Iq...l) - were allowed to ask questions to the claimant; the claimant was not able to ask any questions to the counsels and has to answer all the queries, which I found it insulting and discriminating.

 

4- The first defendants counsel blamed the claimant without showing any prime evidence that the claimant was lying and the Judge did not stop the case which I believe that this behaviour is also classified as "defamation of character"

 

5- the district judge Sh...h who dismissed the case and awarded both defendants costs in a small-claims tracking, whereas the same individual who was the defendant in a different "FastTrack Claim" in A9Q..... Number and despite the other party not turning up to the case on the hearing date he was not awarded any of his costs

 

6- both defendants counsels represented their cost of £250 + VAT and £350+VAT and an individual was penalised to pay the VAT whilst both companies are already reclaiming this VAT in their books.

 

7- the claimant also had a prime evidence that showing the second defendant (accident exchange- witness statements by Iq...l) sending a "virus" via email to the claimant which is also a part criminal law; this was ignored by the judge Sh...h again

 

8- the judge dismissed the case based on there was not enough evidence; so how come he awarded the defendants with their cost based on the claim being "unreasonable" is still hard to understand

 

9- the claimant requested a copy of the recording or transcript through the court manager --

 

 

RESULT??? of course he was not given the copies but so many baloneys

 

I would like to ask whether I am entitled to start an online petition against the judge?? And my legal right to take it to the human rights?

 

Kind regards

My Answer is No.... A judge has to split it down the middle and look at the evidence etc. I dont think a petition and Human Rights comes into this.

 

We could do with some help from you.

What has this to do with religious or political groups?

 

Who would you send a petition to and who would sign it?

 

Why couldn't you use an alternative form of transport to get to work or get a courtesy car?

Religious/political groups - because the name of the judge and the second defendants name (witness statement) were from the same origin of geography

If someone hits your car in your working hours (in parking position whilst at work) - naturally you take time off to arrange alternatives and the repair?

 

I was given a courtesy car but again all taking time off from work to make arrangements, especially if your employer is paying you for the actual hours you work?

Also broken device in the car in the accident

I think I could not explain it properly

What part of the CPR is stating that because you are representing your own case and the others sent their counsel

1-you can be asked questions but you can not ask questions

2- you can be called a lyer in front of the judge and the judge continues

3- your case is represented to the judge initially by the other party's counsel who came to defend his client against you

4-Your case is being dismissed based on not enough evidence but you are paying their fees in a small claims tracking based on being unreasonable

5-you are paying theirVAT which was reclaimed by the companies

6- they don't have the recordings

 

Am I making a mistake? Are they all normal?

I was born in England, had a Scottish maiden name, have an Irish married name although my husband's grandfather was from Wales. My name might suggest I'm Irish catholic but I'm not. I think you'd be on a loser with that one.

 

I can see you might lose a few hours pay but your claim would need to be reasonable and as claimant you'd need to prove your loss.

 

Why weren't these losses paid as part of your original insurance claim?

Like I said I might be paranoid but

 

I am not here to discuss about the judges decision I am talking about the mistreatment that I received

 

I was humiliated, you may be right but I am not a solicitor and may not know all the procedures or the details all I am asking the judge to put the things right as before the accident

 

The second defendant was a claim management company who promised to arrange everything and if necessary appoint a solicitor against the other defendant but all they cared about was their own fees

 

response to your example of origin

When 3 surnames (including myself) are from the Middle East(but two of which from same country but the other is from a different country); things can be slightly different than your example :)

I would really appreciate if anyone can recommend me how to get a copy of the recordings or transcript of the hearing as they told me over the phone there was none and then in writing they said they can't provide as I have to go through the ministry of justice? Is that correct?

I see where you are coming from but collusion and racism are two different things

I am saying the favouritism towards same origin,

Can anyone answer me please the list I stated above my bulletpoints

What part of the CPR is stating these baloneys what the judge said?

I think we should look at the bigger picture; if this potential problem exists; this has to be sorted. It could have been anyone in my position

if the hearing was recorded or transcribed, then you wld be entitled to get a copy at cost.

but if it wasnt....

maybe a copy of the court file/judgment with any judges notes?

IMO

Re-reading your original post, the main query that I would have would be the judge asking the defendants counsel to represent the claimant/you.

 

This seems a conflict of interests and where I suggest you focus your attention. Forget the political/religious stuff because I doubt that will get you anywhere.

Thank you Caro

 

My concerns are

1- the defendants counsel was asked to summarise and represent my case whilst introducing to the judge as he said he did not have time to read the case

2- I was asked to answer all the counsels questions but I was not able to ask any question

3- the claim was dismissed because not enough evidence but was asked to pay their fees based on CPR 27.14 being unreasonable in addition of VAT whereas the defendants are vat registered companies who claimed this vat back?

4- why is there no any recordings of the hearing or even a transcript?

I have got a couple of options

1- start an online petition to find out whether anyone was treated in the same way by the same judge

2- ask for a cross examination such as lie detector for both me and the judge :) I guess this might be possible in the USA but definitely not in the UK:)))

so what else I can do?

So if 4 is not mandotory how can I prove 1-2-3?

 

unfortunately, afaik its not mandatory for the court to record/transcribe any/every cty court hearing.

did they say for sure that it wasnt recorded/transcribed?

try the MoJ then, see what they say.

IMO

The lady over the phone said there is no transcript or recordings in this case

It is going to be another statistical number? We dealt with this many complaints!!!

So do I have a legal right to start an online petition? Or is there any time limit to appeal?

It is standard to pay VAT on legal fees apart from disbursements, and that will be paid TO hmrc. No-one else will benefit from your payment of VAT.

 

I will try to find someone who can advise if you can appeal, but bear in mind that if you could appeal and list, you could end up paying more.

 

What's Best for You?
