    • Hi Andyorch,   thanks for your response. I have gone through the CEO channel with multiple correspondence (letters) to no avail hence the choice to go to court. 
    • on a more positive note   "In his opening statement, Starmer said those who denied the problem of antisemitism should be “nowhere near” Labour. Questioned about Corbyn’s response, he said: “I’ll look carefully at what Jeremy Corbyn has said in full. “But I’ve said a moment ago, and I’ll say it again: those who deny there is a problem are part of the problem. Those who pretend it is exaggerated or factional are part of the problem.” In his statement, Starmer said the EHRC’s findings were “clear and stark”.   He said: “I found this report hard to read. And it is a day of shame for the Labour party. We have failed Jewish people, our members, our supporters, and the British public. “And so, on behalf of the Labour party, I am truly sorry for all the pain and grief that has been caused. To Jewish people, our Jewish members, our longstanding Jewish affiliate, JLM [the Jewish Labour Movement].”"     I'll bet we never see anything like a genuine apology from the Tories for the self serving abuses of the few at the top and their associates .... They can start with Dominic Cummings field trip before they get on to the reckless or deliberate miss-management of the Covid pandemic and the Uk's finances.
    • I had a letter last week from Global Arrow about a debt that I am not even sure that I owe. Today I received a letter from Resolve Call claiming to be acting on behalf of Global Arrow and threatening a doorstep visit. I am confused, who do I reply to, Resolve Call or Global Arrow? The thought of a doorstep visit terrifies me and I am concerned for  my son who could be here when they visit. Are there any template letters available? Any advice would be much appreciated.

    • I think it's outrageous and given that Jolyon is a successful barrister, I can only assume everything he says is accurate.   It's heartbreaking how much money has been squandered.

    • 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 

 

I am about to move out of a property, and we have had ongoing disputes with the letting agent and landlord. Both have told lies about us, so as you can imagine we want to see a copy of the inspection report to make sure it's accurate before we leave to ensure that that there are no further lies! When the inspector came to the house, he found no issues and said as much. 

I'll give you two examples of the issues, we've had 2 break-ins whilst living here (it's rife in the area) and both times reported to the police and the letting agent who came to take photos of the damage. The agency have now said there was no record of this or any damage found. (weird!) We also have a dog, which we were allowed to have and declared at the beginning the tenancy and they're now saying she is unauthorised. This is because we've had an ongoing dispute with the landlord about noise disruption and compensation, which he agreed to pay, then revoked, so the agency are clearly now trying to create some kind of case against us. 

 

They are now refusing to show us the report, which suggests that next there'll be a lie about damage at the property. I have requested the report 4 times in writing and they have ignored us. 

 

Are they legally obliged to show us? 

 

Thanks in advance

the report belongs to the person who commissioned it so the answer is no.

however, it will contain your personal data so you will be able to ask for it if they then rely on it for claiming you are responsible for damage.

Do you have a cpy fo the condition report from when you moved in? If you have the that makes it easier to challenge andassertions the LL makes based on changes between the 2 reports but what I would do is take decent pictures of everything in the house and that includes all of the marks that were there before any new ones etc but also things like light switches, curtain rails, door knobs, cupboard door handles etc you name it, it gets photographed. also get some general views of each and every room from different positions.

Hi 

 

We actually had loads of things wrong when we moved in that they never fixed, damp, dodgy door handles, broken locks etc. It was also filthy and we had to get a professional cleaner to sort it as the landlord wouldn't. We have all this on email so proof of what we've reported etc.
