    • Hi all, just to close this one, please see the photos below....before and after    Thank you, all, for some great advice (as per usual!)
    • Thanks BankFodder.   I wasn't intending on making bones about it with them but I was irked at being dismissed with the phrase 'it's store policy'.  I returned it because I was returning an air hockey game which wasn't functioning properly.  I would have assumed that if it were designed as a toy for an audience that may be prone to dropping it, it would be made to be suitably durable.  I was expecting that a year would have been reasonable and by it not lasting it was, as you mentioned, not of satisfactory quality. Alas, it's not something I wish to pursue to find out for sure.   I do appreciate your feedback, as always on here, I like to know where I stand with these things.  Thanks also for the heads-up on the Youtube video, I had not thought of that.
    • I've also being doing some reading over the weekend. It appears the law of properties act 1925 does not apply in Scotland (only England and Wales).   "In Scotland an assignation need not be in writing, and intimation is all that is needed to give the assignee a right effective against all parties. Apart from the terminology, the principal differences in England are as follows. Under the Law of Property Act 1925 the assignment must be in writing, the entire benefit must be assigned, and notice must be given to the other contracting party. If any of these elements are missing there may still be an equitable assignment – under which an assignee would typically need to join the assignor as a party to any action under the contract."   So I think the NOA defence is not going to hold up, as Nolans are probably right in what they are saying that their letter (intimation) is sufficient.   So my sole defence is going to be lack of default notice under section 87/88.   Any advice at this stage? I assume costs are still capped at £150 if lose?
    • Hi bankfodder. I do have the invoice in my email, so would it be the cost of the turbo and labour for fitting
    • as i said unsure of what this 15% is about.   the FOS/FCA clearly describe how refund calcs show have been made the their relevant sites.   p'haps at this juncture it might be better to scan up to ONE multipage PDF their refund letters  another set of eyes is always belter.   please read our upload guide carefully

    • 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!

Dear All,

 

My daughter back in May received 2 Parking charge notices from parking eye for her car being parked at Charnock Richard Services on the m6 north,

 

 

she checked the dates when her car was parked and being that i am the only other person to drive her car and plus the fact she rarely drives on the motorway it was clear that it was in fact me driving the car at the time,

 

 

when she called parking eye she gave them my details to which i do not have a problem with.

 

Now i have the 2 parking charges and they are asking me to pay £100 for each of these or £60 each if i pay within the 14 days of this order being sent to me,

 

 

i spoke to parking eye this afternoon and they have said it has been put on hold for 14 days to allow me to appeal and after that they will pursue it further,

 

 

i have seen a few appeals have been won by not clear signage and parking eye not being the landowner etc

 

 

i am wondering if this is the case and how do i go about it.

 

I would really appreciate it if anybody could help me with this.

Hello and welcome to CAG. It's a shame your daughter told Parking Eye it was you, but all is not lost.

 

How hard would it be for you to get photos of the signs or do you have them already please? The forum guys should be along later with advice for you.

 

My best, HB

Right, she has now removed the protection of the POFA so if she gets any more of these demands DO NOT contact the parking co. It ay be that you will have to pay them because of the rush to speak to PE when the best approach is always ask for advice first and then act on it accordingly.

 

It is likely that the best thing to do is see whether PE have a contract with the landowner rather than a third party and also whether they have Planning Permission for their signage. You can ask the relevant local council about the latter but generally the former is harder to dig out because they would normally have a contract with the franchise that runs the services but the DoT owns the land but it is not always the case.

 

You could stall them by demanding proof of contractual obligation by getting them to say what entity they have the contract with as you do not believe that they have the right to eneter into contracts with motorists visiting that site and require "strict proof" of such a right.

 

Whilst you are waiting for their reply you should get the answer back about the PP and then if they dont have it you can 1) tell them to f*** off as their attemt to get money is fraud and 2) report tem to that council for the criminal activity of misrepresenting their position to make a pecuniary advantage, contrary to the Theft Act due to the lack of PP (a criminal offence thus making anything they gain from it criminal)
