    • They've actually been behaving themselves for me, recently.  I'm re-signed with them on a variable tariff, meaning not tied in and can leave any time if they get up to their old tricks.  However something I noticed was that when accepting the tariff they actually showed in advance how they expected that annual total to be split into the 12 months.

    • Hi All   really need some help and advice.   i have a PayPal credit facility with a balance of £400. I owe £270 due this month. I am going to phone them and pay this and clear it as it’s a credit contract and I know they can enforce it.   however alongside that I have a negative PayPal balance of £5000 this is not through the PayPal credit. It shouldn’t have happened and I don’t plan to pay that, at least not now.   if I phone PayPal and pay the credit facility with my debit card will that be ok? Or will they use those details to try and get the money back for the 5k negative balance?   thanks for any help. Whilst I appreciate PayPal credit and the negative balance are separate with them being on 1 page on 1 account I wasn’t sure.

    • 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!

Very stressed mother of 20, 18 and 14. 18 year old staying on foster child. All in uni, college.

Husband primary carer for looked after child.

 

We rented the same house for 13 years, initially through an agent, but the landlord took over himself for the last 3 years.

He was a pain and kept increasing rent every 6 months.

We should have moved, but, children, work school etc.

 

He issued a section 21 notice at which point we started looking for somewhere to live.

I lost £750 in deposit and referencing fees.

 

 

I have to admit that business wasn't going well and money was very tight so our rent was not very regular but it was paid.

He applied for eviction and claimed arrears of rent via a money claim.

 

 

The court refused him possession saying section 21 defective and he appealed.

We stopped paying rent to save up a deposit and we finally found somewhere to live and moved.

 

In the meantime, moneyclaim came to court.

Sum was increased from £5k to £16k and court gave him judgement

despite no notification on increased claim before I got to court.

 

 

I told judge I would have come to court to with counsel if I had known.

I appealed and was denied leave to appeal, but granted an oral hearing.

 

Meantime, landlord withdrew appeal to judgement on Section 21

and asked we make repayment proposal as we have 2 very successful businesses.

 

 

He has had in his head for years that we have money just don't want to pay him.

He has been telling me he will ruin my credit for years everytime I argued about rent increase,

looks like he will shortly get his wish.

 

 

I will have to sign on and claim HB to be have any hope of being able to pay next month's rent if I don't get a job asap.

 

I need transcripts, but can't afford to pay as I am currently unemployed though not on job seekers,

I need to send a bundle to court shortly in advance of hearing

but only have a thin idea of it needs to go in.

 

 

Any, all advice most gratefully received.

Hi mamatemi

 

It is really difficult to advise without the full details of the case and what you have already submitted and actions you have taken.

 

Did you not acknowledge the initial claim or defend?

 

Perhaps post up a timeline of events (court procedure) and scan in some Court Orders....particularly the Order re Oral Hearing.

 

Giving us 4 days notice is also not great....having been a member since 2007.

 

Regards

 

Andy

Well you wont have a bundle as you never defended the initial claim...simply draft a skeleton argument listing your main points of contention/disagreements and get it to them today...otherwise you will be late and disallowed to submit evidence.

Then your bundle will be a paginated account of what you relied on with your defence to the initial hearing.

 

Its very difficult to advise any further as all the details we have from you from above is......

 

"In the meantime, money claim came to court. Sum was increased from £5k to £16k and court gave him judgement despite no notification on increased claim before I got to court.

 

I told judge I would have come to court to with counsel if I had known. I appealed and was denied leave to appeal, but granted an oral hearing."

Then you will have to find a local company (your court may recommend one ) to transcribe the recording to transcript.

I will try to be brief!

 

We lived in the same house as tenants for 13 years. The last 2 years were an incessant demand for rent rises. I finally had enough when he sent us a quit notice and stopped paying any rent. We ended up in court, he was refused possession and we finally found somewhere to move to 5 months after being threatened with balliffs.

 

He has got judgement for 16k, even though he only paid and claimed for £5k. We have been given leave to appeal to Crown Court but must provide transcripts at our own expense - currently £500 and then find money for a barrister. We are just about keeping the new roof over our head.

The stress has been unbelievable. I am now unemployed (since May) and still waiting for a determination on Housing Benefit, so my new tenancy may also be at risk. I am praying to get a job soon, but I have loans and credit cards that I am just about keeping on top of ( spent the last 4 years trying to grow a business) and no savings.I think my best option is to fill in an N245 and throw myself at the mercy of the court. All advice gratefully received. I would like to go to a new job with a clear mind.

Hi all,

I lost a court case with my former landlord. Judge gave me leave to appeal at Crown court with oral hearing and transcripts to be produced at my own expense. Could not afford cost of transcripts or a barrister for oral arguments so appeal dismissed. what happens next please?
