    • 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!

Hi all,

 

I have a court hearing with money barn in 3 weeks

where they are seeking a return of a car I have on finance with them.

Firstly, hands up, entirely my own fault.

 

Circumstances are this.

I haven't yet paid a third.

In february I got into financial difficulty and instead of discussing it with them I did a fine impression of an ostrich and ignored all their letters.

 

 

One of them was a termination notice, that much I do remember, and it followed all the others into the bin.

(No, I'm not sure what I hoped to achieve by that either.)

 

I then got a letter stating that they had passed it to their repo company who would be in touch.

I heard nothing then until I got this pack from the court telling me of the court date.

 

They are seeking:

 

- the full finance amount outstanding,

including all the interest that would have been payable under the 5 year contract (even though it's just over 2 years)

- compensation

- the return of the car

 

I contacted them via email, apologised, explained about being poorly

and told them that I would be able to bring the account fully up to date on the 29th of November.

They declined.

 

Is there anything I can do?

 

I think they're taking the a bit wanting all the money AND the car?

 

 

I have to fill in a defence form and was thinking about saying that they can have the car and the outstanding finance LESS the book value of the car.

 

Any suggestions?

Thank you theoldrouge,

 

If I apply for one of them, should I do it now or ask for one in my defence form? Also, does this in effect them re-instate the agreement?

 

I have also emailed them asking for a copy of the default notice and a full statement including any charges they have applied

thank you!

 

Another question if you don't mind? Sorry about this!

 

They are saying that the default notice was the termination notice. In the sale agreement though it says this:

 

"On or after the occurrence of an Event of Default we shall be entitled (subject to the consumer credit act 1971), and after serving a default notice, at our option to terminate the agreement."

 

Should they not have sent me a separate default notice then?

 

This is what is says in the default notice:

 

"If you do not take the action required by this notice before the date shown then the further action set out below may be taken against you:

 

Further action: on or after the date shown for payment of arrears:

 

* we will terminate the agreement with immediate effect;

* we will enforce our rights to recover possession of the goods and our rights to payment under the terms of the agreement; and

* we may register a default with the credit reference agencies to which we subscribe."

 

My emphasis on the 'may'. To me this says this is a possible course of action, not a definitive one. Shouldn't they have told me they were going to terminate?

 

Also this:

 

"If you fail to take the remedial action by the date shown above you will be liable to pay us the balance outstanding under the agreement of £17,9913.36 less a rebate of £5,101.84 (which will reduce if you do not pay by the date shown above), to give a net amount payable by you of £12,889.52 (which will increase if the rebate reduces.) We will deduct from this amount payable any net proceeds we receive from the sale of the repossessed goods."

 

But then in the court papers there is no mention of this rebate?????

they must have served a compliant default notice under s87(1) cca 1974

giving you 14 clear days to remedy

before they were able to terminate the agreement

rebate is only payable if you were to settle in full

 

this is why it is so important to obtain a suspended repo order or a time order

 

otherwise you become liable for the full agreement less what the car sells for at auction

 

forget the "may" they have terminated

They've also included their 'charges' in the default notice

No I haven't

but it's not saying "if you take remedial action as above" then that's what happens.

 

 

They say if you FAIL to take the remedial action, this is what you will owe.

 

 

Do you see what I mean?

 

Shall I upload a copy?

 

I'm not reading it wrong am I?

Absolutely, I'm just trying to find a way to limit my damage and if I'm reading it right it becomes part of the contract so I can rely on it when defending their claim for over 17k

you are filing in the N9C asking for a time order.

you don't need to defend nor limit damage.

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

 

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

 

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

 

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...
