    • 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!

Lowells 2xPAPLOC now Claimform - Old Vanquis Card debt


Recommended Posts

Cant you just drop it off at your local county court where the hearing is being held  and email a copy to the claimants sols? You should only have a 1 page statement and possibly 2 exhibits...what bundle are you on about ?

We could do with some help from you.

Hi Guys,

 

about to finalise my WS,

 

one question before i upload

- would an SAR request to Vanquis not include a notice of default and notice of assignment,

should i use these documents from Vanquis in my WS?

it should include all documentation sent prior to the request?

 

The default notice Lowell have uploaded states 2015 and i note no logo like i have with the letter from Vanquis.

 

SAR was way after this and neither acknowledged it,

infact i have a letter from Lowell stating they are awaiting it after my CPR request which was in 2019

 

Vanquis sent an SAR,

but the accompanying letter only states it includes my statements and CCA, with reconstituted terms,

but these terms (i uploaded previously) have more pages than those submitted in the WS of Lowell's (above)

 

Not sure whether this is relevant to use or will go against me somehow

what are you indicating here?

 

are you saying that the documents lowell have exhibited in their WS, those being the DN and the agreement T&C's are DIFFERENT from those you got directly from the OC after submitting an SAR to them?

Sorry to clarify:

 

lowells WS includes a DN which i never received, dated 2015.

My SAR to Vanquis was 2017,

my CPR request to Lowell and

2 x PAP was 2019,

none included the DN,

with letters from both outlining what was included in the letter they sent.

So neither have confirmed in writing here is the DN

 

both the Vanquis SAR does not indicate any inclusion of this in their letter.

Also lowells reply to my CPR states it is awaiting a copy of it from the OC

 

I would have thought a SAR from the OC would include all documents at the time of request,

if my req was 2017 and this supposed DN letter Lowell's attached is 2015,

should it have not been included,

and mentioned in the letter from vanquis?

 

In short Vanquis letter states 'here is your agreement and T & C's'

- Lowell letter states

'here is your statement, agreement and notice of assignment, we are awaiting DN'

 

The t & C's Lowell submitted are in part what Vanquis sent me, and also what lowells originally sent me, BUT some pages are missing from the WS T & C's of which both sent prior

 

im basing the weight of my WS on:

- not receiving a correct CCA, terms reconstituted

- no DN

 

Would it just be easier if i upload my WS as it is and i can remove what you think isn't right?

there is no requirement for the OC to keep a copy of the DN

however, they should hold record that one WAS sent.

this will must be noted in the comms/account log, i'e the log of where they state what actions they took and interactions they had with you.

look there at the date of lowells supposed copy date of the DN they supplied to see if it shows.

 

as for the T&C's disclosed by lowells ideally they should be the same as you have attained from the OC directly.

 

NOA can be sent by the debt buyer using the OC's letterhead and will not be contained within an SAR return from an OC.

HI Guys, i think ive finalised it now

 

I have put my defence and statement together, not sure i should do them separately or if it matters

I have uploaded as PDF but can paste into the thread if easier

i havent uploaded the exhibits but i can if required upload the entire bundle

i wasnt going to add any other pages so not sure if i need to include as much as they did like their WS, their exhibits, original claim and forms etc

 

My bundle content was going to be:

- defence

- WS

- exhibits

 

Grateful yet again for the support and cannot wait for this to be over

Why have you included a copy of your defence ?  The court and claimant already have this .

I noticed another couple of WS had them but also the court letter states to include everything as they may not have access on the day

 

'the hearing bundle should in as much as is essential to assist the court with the remote hearing of the matter (in circumstances where the judge is unlikely to have access to the court file) contain such documents as follows as may be relevant, appropriate and applicable to the type of hearing in question:

- the statements of case (claim form, particulars of claim, defence and counterclaim and any reply and defence to any counterclaim

- any directions questionnaires and proposed directions

- any case summary and chronology

- any previous orders that are relevant to the remote hearing

- any other essential documents and witness statements that the court will require to determine the issues that fall for determinatioon at the remote hearing

- A draft order '

 

This is why I was confused as to what to include, whether it needs to be indexed etc

Then include it...but separate...not as part of the witness statement.

Ok amended

My bundle will include:

 

My Defence

My WS including case summary

Exhibits

 

Do i need to include any other documents or an index page as a similar layout to lowells? Im presuming i can simply refer to the exhibits they supplied as opposed to include them in my bundle seeing as im addressing their points in WS also? i have my own exhibits ofcourse

 

Im not sure if i need to include all the claim forms, directions questionaire etc etc or again because lowell have if that is relevant for the bundle?

Afraid not...you cant refer to the claimants exhibits within your statement....this is your standard disclosure and statement...if you make reference to a document you must finish the paragraph with see exhibit 1/2/3/ etc etc then attach a an index with all the exhibits numbered and named and then attach all the exhibits to the index sheet......simples.
