    • Yup sounds it !  I did mention to the salesman I hold no issue with him because I think he did his part  Servicing would have prepped the car, ticked the boxes and handed it over to say now go sell this.  He could be the worlds biggest car fanatic or the best salesman with no knowledge about cars so I can't expect him to have known or to even checked after the MPC.   I will ask if its just easier sending a tyre fitter or getting it done locally - at just over £400, its silly to send two people down, do 100+ miles in the Q3 + 100+ to get here and back + workshop time + ultimately new tyres (I assume)  
    • Thanks. It looks as if they are behaving very responsibly so far. Keep a close eye on it though and keep good notes of everything that happens.
    • Salesman just called essentially saying they will be speaking to the various managers tomorrow to put together a plan of action - more to the point, its looking like they would come to me, pick the car up and take it back to PA to resolve the issues if I am not comfortable driving it up myself.   Lets see what they come back with tomorrow and go from there- He did ask if I had a car and I said yes - in hindsight I am now thinking its because we could be without the Q3 for a few days so this might also need to be raised as the "owner " is a heavily pregnant person hence the upgrade and don't want her to be carless if I am out at work and she needs to go for a scan/app ...   Will update tomorrow

    • 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

 

Thank you for allowing me to post on your informative website.

 

I am after some advice please.

 

A CCJ was entered against me, mid May this year for £2300.

 

I’m not disputing that I don’t owe this money.

 

I have received a notice of enforcement from Shergroup Enforcement telling me that if I don’t contact the by 5pm on the 23/6 I can expect a visit at home☹️.

 

The letter only arrived this morning.

 

What should I do if they turn up.

Obviously I won’t answer the door to them or sign anything.

The property belongs to a housing association.

 

I have a car but it is on finance but I’m guessing to be on the safe side I should hide it.

 

I have two vulnerable children at home both under the age of 16.

 

I will be able to clear the debt in full in a couple of months.

 

Thanks

J

The ccj is from 17/5/18.

As I said I should be able to pay the debt off in full by mid/end of July as the deceased’s property will be sold.

Thanks J

not sure exactly which direction to go:

 

ring shergroup and tell them that [and that you are going for an N245]

 

ring the court an tell them it will be paid by xx date and what do they recommend?? N245?

 

or both?

What date is on the Notice of Enforcement you have received?

Do you still have the envelope it came in?

If so how was it posted?

 

I note what you say about making contact and will suggest if no contact made by tomorrow they could well turn up on Sunday.

Do not let them in they have no right of entry regardless of anything they may say.

 

In the meantime you need to download and fill in an application for a Stay of Execution against the Writ.

 

Depending on answers above will give grounds for application.

It does appear you will have no grounds to have the matter Set Aside but could go for a Variation allowing you to pay at a reasonable rate without all their fees.

 

They will be looking at payment in full only and may not entertain a voluntary payment plan.

Possibly not much can be done at this time on a Friday.

what estate did they have?

estate is stuff like property, cash, stocks and shares, important works of art or collections. It is not stuff like furniture or other effects, personal jewellery car and so forth.

 

Lastly why did it get to a court claim, funeral directors normally give people a year to cough up as the deceased is supposed to pay for their own funeral ( they all create a contract with the living though or people would do the dirty).

 

If they had an estate did they leave a will?

If not then unless you had permission from the govt it isnt your place to make decisions in this regard.

 

Hate to say it but bodies get left in mortuaries for a long time sometimes so unless you are the nearest relative you act of kindness has been misplaced and it has now come back to bite you and the other relatives shuld be ashamed.

That would depend on the circumstances surrounding the deceased's estate. Your statement is certainly inaccurate and given the nature of the subject, unnecessary scaremongering.

The Taking Control of Goods Regulations 2013 states any day of the week but the Taking Control of goods National Standards while not legally binding states "Enforcement agents should be respectful of the religion and culture of others at all times. They should carefully consider the appropriateness of undertaking enforcement on any day of religious or cultural observance or during any major religious or cultural festival" which arguably covers Sundays being a day of religious observation as that is why Bank Holidays and Christmas Day are considered to be inappropriate.

show me where this is wrong,

a person has to apply for a grant of representation.

 

If there is no estate then nothing to administer but the law is fixed on how things are done and who gets what.

 

As for scaremongering,

i am trying to point out that they may have not been liable for the debt in the first place and as an addition to that it may be possible to get the CCJ set aside on the grounds that they arent liable for the debt but the actual next of kin.

that person or persons is also determined by law and also the pecking order.

We can enforce on bank holidays.

And you are correct on 6am to 9pm OR normal trading hours if a business.

Yes thats correct, we see time and time again where family arrange the funeral for a deceased relative where the estate of the deceased had no funds or assets. The relatives or even the friends that organise it then pay for the funeral.

 

Best bet would be to ring the EA(ask the office for his number). Ask him to come round to assess your circumstances.

Show him the car finance details, he wont have an interest in that then.

If you have little to no goods of value in the house, then there will likely be nothing for him to do but look to set an arrangement with you.

Feel free to refuse him access. Its your right to do so.

But if you are confident you have nothing of resale value in the house, then its not an issue as he probably wouldnt even threaten a removal.

Unfortunately the person who arranged this is the one responsible.

If a person arranges the funeral of a deceased person and agrees to a contract to provide that service, that person is then liable for the debt. Voluntarily paying for a funeral has nothing to do with a grant of representation, it is a separate issue from administering the estate. Yes, the funeral cost could have been met from any equity in the estate but that did not happen.
