    • 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!

This evening, somebody attended my home and gave me a court order from Bradford County Court for an 'Order to attend court for questioning.

 

A judge sitting in the County Court orders that

 

1: Myself T/a 'trading name' the judgement debtor attend at the County Court at Bradford, Civil and Family Centre, <address here> on <date here> before a court officer at <time here> to provide information about the judgement debtor's means and any other information needed to enforce the judgement or order.

 

2: The judgement debtor at the time and place produce at court all documents in the judgement debtor's control which relate to the judgement debtors means of paying the amount due under the judgement or order and which relate to those matters mentioned in paragraph 1.

 

3: The judgement debtor at the time and place answer on oath, all the questions which the court asks and which the court allows the judgement creditor to ask.

 

4: The court where the questioning is to take place may make an order for payment of the costs of the application and the hearing.

 

The amount owing is between £7,000 and £8,000, from a creditor when I ran my sole trader business, since then, In have ceased trading as I have become to ill and now receive enhanced rate PIP due to severe disablement.  I have no money and rely on unemployment benefits and disability benefits.

 

My questions of help are realy as follows.

 

What are the court and/or the creditor allowed to ask me? I know it will be financially themed, ie what my income, outgoings and savings are, but what else are they allowed to ask, what am I required to answer etc etc.

 

What are my rights as a judgement debtor attending an order to attend court for questioning?

 

I know if I do not attend I may receive a committal sentance and ultimatel lead to contemt of court/prison time etc etc, so I will be attending.

 

So am I required to take bank statements, I can and will if needed, no money to hide?

 

Thanks in advance, if anyone has a guide to those in my situation or can answer my questions I would be greatful beyond words.

 

regards,

thepalace1

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...

I haven't, a high court officer visited twice, and on both occasions I told him I was disabled, vulnerable and on benefits, he asked me to email proofs to his office, 

 

I did with the details, only they seem not to have received them now, even though they replied to the email thanking me for sending through my proofs of disability and benefits.

 

As for the original court claim, I was in hospital when the claim was going through court and an order was made in default, no reason to apply for set aside as I owe the money, I just am not in a position to repay it.

Best idea is reply to the court 

I will assume this was a default judgement through northants bulk and because the sum was above £5k the claimant swiched courts to use HCEO.

 

you say it was a sole trade debt? Did you sign a pers guarantee??

who's the claimant?? Not a dca i hope?

Thanks for your reply,

 

It was originally not contested, so they won by default, not sure where, Northampton????

 

It was a sole trader, and yes the account I had with a supplier was in personal name t/a, the debt is a company, a garden machinery machine supplier, no dca, they went to couort directly through their solicitors and instructed High Court Bailiffs when they won.

well HCEO can't do anything - for want of a different word just ignore them in all essence.

theres no right of forced entry on consumer credit debt.

 

on the court order

Nothing to worry about. Quite formal, clerk with black gown, swear an oath and answer standard questions.
