    • @dx100ukIt just moved less than decimals because we briefly used hot water, while the other one increased by 3m^3.   So, how should I proceed? Do I just call EON and make them aware? How will the charge or refund me if they do not know the initial number for the meter (the one 1 year ago in the meter I should have been reading)?   Thanks!
    • Alright great appreciate the quick response/advice will send it asap, when you say keep it very wide do you mean don't limit this part of the SAR?   "Please note that I require disclosure of any personal data which you hold on me for the entire period of my dealings with you."   Will update when I hear something back,   Thanks.  
    • Has there ever been any success stries re chargeback with BOS? How much hope do I have? I wrote to FOS and to the bank again requesting a chargeback in writing too.

    • 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!

Hello, Me again! :roll:

 

I received a charge notice for parking on their clients property for a

 

CHARGE NOTICE from Highview Parking, Bradfield Road Car Park, Sheffield S6 2BW

Date: 18.12.18

Time: 19:47

Time left: 22:27

Duration: 2hrs 40 mins

 

I had been for a meal at the Italian restaurant for my managers retirement hence the late time of arrival. The car park was empty and so presumed it would have exceeded the time period with it being unsociable hours.

 

Having spoken with friends and family, I decided to ignore the first letter but have received a second one today to state the charge is now £85 instead of the reduced amount of £50. and if not recieved within 14 days an initial debt recovery charge of £40 will be incurred????

 

Can I please have advice on what to do next as I don't know how best to go about these sort of things- I do think it is disgusting and the owners should not be allowed to charge these ridiculous amounts.

 

I am concerned that I will get taken to court etc???

 

Please help??

 

Many thanks in advance

It doesn't state the maximum time permitted on the letter? I haven't done anything as of yet- should I contact the restaurant? What's PPC off? (Sorry I have no idea about the charge notices)

 

Many Thanks for you help so far by the way! :roll:

Also, have a good read of the private parking forums. Youll soon get an idea for how these companies work.

well, this isnt an NTK as they have missed out a key phrase so no liability is created at all as they dont say who the creditor is. They also make an unlawful demand of £2.50 admin fee so again not a lawful invoice. They dont provide a service address for documents so not a lawful invoice.

 

3 errors that will cost them dearly in the long run.

This also suggests that they will be just as slapdash with their signage that offers the contract in the first place such as not bothering with planning permission for their cameras and signs,

 

the signs are probably too poorly worded and sited to offer a contract etc. It would be good if you can get some pictures of the entrance to the land from the public highway and also of the signs so we can see what is what

 

. If there are no signs at the entrance from the proper road then we need to know as that will be their undoing even if they have 100 large illuminated signs elsewhere.

Here are two pictures I took, of the signage - The second image is the first sign you see as you enter and isn't very big, it wasn't let up when i arrived at around 7:45pm it was pitch black - hence me presuming that because it was unsociable hours that it wouldn't be in effect :x

Who on earth came up with 90 minutes for parking when there is a restaurant on site. They must be making fortunes and the restaurant should be getting complaints every day. Have you tried complaining to the restaurant?

all the businesses there will be tenants and mightily peed off that their landlord is killing their business by bringing in these cowboys and allowing them to dictate the terms their customers have to abide to.

 

Get on to the restaurant and to any shop there that you may have even looked in the window of and complain about this.

they may not have the authority to cancel but they sue as hell will be telling the agent or LL that they are losing business because of these bandits.

 

What may well happen behind the scenes is they ask for a rent reduction and that may get the LL to be rid of the parking co or at least change their terms.

Even though this wont get your ticket cancelled the more complaints the better it is in the long run as they will get the boot when they cost the LL enough money

Would the resteraunt even have any power to do so?

I haven’t contacted them no.

I’m debating this.

 

I have received a third letter today from them.

The charge has gone from £50 early fine to £100 and now £125 with threaten of debt collectors.

They have also mentioned in red about my credit rating may be affected.

 

I’m honestly disgusted and don’t know what to do about it

- I don’t want to pay it under principal of me parking there in unsociable hours for one!!

Please see attached letter from today

 

Update: I have contacted the resteraunt and he says he has had a few enquiries regarding this matter.

His is more than happy to write a statement to say that I was in the resteraunt etc.

 

He did also state that he is appalled and has written to the council and MP

- and that people have paid and also ignored the letters.

Aghhhh ....?!?!?

Dont worry. They cant add any of those charges. Theyre trying to scare you. They certainly cannot touch your credit file until they have a CCJ and y ou dont pay it within 28 days. That will NEVER happen.

 

Relax.

I have spoken to the business and they said that they would verify I was there if needed but if I did that Highview would then have my details and they will come back to say that I still over exceeded the stated time limit even though it was Poorly lit to which is I presumed it wouldn’t be implimented during unsociable hours

coo, they have adjusted their unicorn food tax tariff. that must be due to a no deal brexit.

 

if you had read any of the thousands of similar posted letters you would know that you just igniore this. it is also too late to waoory about asking the restaurant for help. by the way, highview already have your details and that is why they are writing to you. The tenants at the site have the ability to moan like hell at their landlord for ruining their trade but if you dotn force them to complain to teh landlord they wont do anything as they arent in the firing line. you should ahve made thej part of the problem if they werent willing to be part of the solution

I presumed it would be to ignore it. I posted in here because of the protection of freedoms act 2012 has been stated so it has worried me a little as to what to do next about it?! 

I contacted the restaurant a while ago to complain and he said that he’d complained numerous amounts of times previously and that he would back me up if needed. 

How does Highview have my details?  I haven’t acknowledged any form of letter from them?!! 

Thanks
