    • Apologies if this rambles slightly I feel a little brain dead after yesterday    I just want to know if I'm being unreasonable in one of my points (holding them responsible for costs to possibly damaged engine if I can get an engineer report)    Basically broke down in a layby on the a43, steam from bonnet high engine temps   RAC arrives declares it a minor leak and tops up then says OK to continue (4 miles to services) then recheck and says fine to drive home   30 miles later large amount of steam from engine and lose power, get it to hard shoulder   Next rac chap arrives and says it blowing like that may have damaged engine as it now doesn't start, says it will need a crane truck as 4wd and auto says priority job as 3 children on hardshoulder in the rain (1 in wheelchair)    3 hours later, I've chased rac twice and been rung by highways agency twice (who have also complained to rac)    Tow truck arrives (flat bed) advise them we were told it needs crane and drive says its OK it will run, after cranking engine for over 5 mins drives it onto truck pouring fluid out the bottom   I can't help but feel that him cranking engine that much when pouring fluid is likely to have done alot of damage as well as being told to continue on a leaking engine    
    • Thank you. I’ll sit on my hands, for now!

    • It's not worth appealing because ECP won't listen, unfortunately, plus you can give the impression that if they lean on you, you'll pay them money when you don't need to. The only time we normally advise writing to them is if you get a Letter Before Claim/Action.   Best to say nothing for now and if you do get a LBC, we'll help you to draft something.

    • 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!

A SAR is a request for all the information they have on you, a CPR request is more specific and deals with documents relevant to their claim.

 

Never use e-mail, if they have your e-mail address it lets them send documentation one second before the deadline to catch you out.  Make them use snail mail.  When you send your CPR request (dx's post 74), get a  free certificate of posting from the post office.

i have today received a letter stating

 

Judgement for Claimant (default)       

 

 You have not replied to the claim form 

it is therefore ordered that you must pay the claimant £160 for debt (and interest to date of judgement) and £25 for costs (less £0 which you have already paid)

you must pay the claimant £185 forthwith

 

Warning,

if you ignore this order your goods may be removed and sold, or other enforcement  proceedings may be taken against you. If this happens further costs will be added.   If your circumstances change and you cannot pay, ask ath the court office what you can do.

 

i have not received any other court letters or sars request since i forwarded my mcol claim.

 

i am confused as to why i have received this, i was expecting a court date and sars  request letters.

i though i might not have submitted mcol claim by mistake, but i have checked my account on there, and the claim for was submitted. on 07/06/2020 .

 

any advice on next step to take appreciated, 

thanks to all who have helped previously.

Looks like they didn't submit a defence if AOS was done was it not made clear how to respond to a Claimform.  By not submitting a holding defence  Simple has a Default Judgment and little hope if no hope for a Set Aside.  Only option is to pay the judgment within 20 days to be safe otherwise its bye bye Credit rating for 6 years.

We could do with some help from you.

i did follow instructions as dx100 post above.

 

by completing AOS on the mcol website , i thought that was all i needed to do. and by doing that i was filing defence,  and i had received confirmation on mcol  account

 

i was not aware and it had not been made clear to me (or if it had i misunderstood) how i could file any further defence.

i thought i had to wait for court date to file a defence or correspond any further

No you acknowledge the claim, then you submit a short holding defence by day 33, usually 3 lines is sufficient, by not doing that Simple got  his payday, with little or no option but to pay it within 28 days of Judgment or have trashed credit for 6 years if its Registered.

We could do with some help from you.

you didnt read the full post of our claimform response template then...^^^

 

nor did you read the full posts of the link where you originally gave us the details of the claim.

 

in red at the top it says you do not wait to file a defence etc.

 

sorry but numerous times here i pointed out you were making schoolboy errors from post 1 .

but it didn't sink in...

 

anyway.

not much you can do now unless you want to risk another £255 that you might not get back to set aside the default judgement.

 

get the CCJ settled NOW as it cheaper and it will not show on your credit file and hurt you

you have 28 days from the date on the default judgement letter.

Unfortunately paying the £185 is the least worst option..

 

You could apply for a set aside, but not only does it cost more at £255 but you also have to give the judge a reason why you didn't file your defence when you were supposed to.

 

You could just not pay, but that would lead to six years of a trashed credit file.

 

Best to take it on the chin and be ready if the same thing ever happens again, when it will be essential to read what is written on the court form and respect any deadlines the court sets (something dx repeated upthread).

No, you will get the set aside but you will have to pay the fee as stated.

 

If you go for that you had better get scribbling down what your defence is gonig to be because it will be needed to show that you have a reasonable chance of winning.

 

having a hopeless case is the only way of not being granted the set aside.

You can go for summary dismissal of their claim at the same time.

 

part of your defence should be the penalty aspect for their supposed costs after the event.

 

see the OPC LEWES case
