    • 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!

so are you saying that they are not intending to proceed with court? It seems to me they are about to do just that as errand boys for NCP??

How much clout do BW have? If I need to reply to them then they can't be as toofless as I first thought.

cheers

Hi DX, thanks for a quich reply.

Sure I get that CAG is a selfhelp site.

But my question is if this is a genuine thing that's taking me to court or if it's another level of toothless scaremongering . That was my question.

 

It's all well and good sending snotty insulting letters if BW are just scaremongering but it's a whole different thing if there's validity to this letter of claim on which I need to act upon.

 

Thanks

Looks genuine and valid to me if your referring to the one you uploaded at post # 29 ?

We could do with some help from you.

Hi yep, thats the one!

So I need to act on it then?

In that case is a snotty reply the way to go?

 

after all it's not going to stop them after the month is out.

They'll just proceed with this to MCOL and my potential bill will be just more than now.

 

Fact is that no matter what I do as they are judge and jury if they don't get their dosh this'll go to MCOL and I'll have to pay their rip off money

It certainly is.

The letter shows that you are not afraid to stick it up them,

that you are not going to pay and you are not afraid if their threats.

 

So the likelihood is that if they do take you to Court you will have a very good defence to their claim, as that have seen from previous snotty letters. 

 

They may decide to push you a bit further to see if you will pay up and they may decide not to turn up in Court if they see your defence.

 

They may push because the virus has lost them a lot of money as people are ordering groceries etc. from home and not so many cars have been parked in super markets carparks.

I feel a snotty something coming on. Whatever it is it's not Batflu 😂😂

 

It was an ANPR capture. ..... SMILE 🖕.....

 

Is this enough or should I write a proper defense??

 

A lack of contractual obligation makes your demands spurious, please refer back to your client and desist this harassment

These companies don't actually like to take people to court.  Legal fees in small claims are capped at £50.  However, the people who run the companies are so stupid that they are incapable of dealing with their own court cases and so have to employ local solicitors which costs them a bomb.  So even if they win in court they lose IYSWIM.  

 

If you give them both barrels now there is a good chance they will decide it's not worth their while and go after some other naive mug instead.  There are no guarantees of course.

 

Just to clear a few things up.  You actually paid the parking fee - twice - but the machine was knackered, right?  Any proof of this?  Then the fleecers sent out a second demand without sending the first so you couldn't appeal or get the discount, right?

 

Also, can you remember what you wrote to them?  In particular if you outed yourself as the driver?

We could do with some help from you.

Well that's an interesting question if I outted myself or not.

I did send an appeal to NCP in reply to the original letter although I was late with that and after their shut off date or what ever they called it. I'd just had a hand operation. However I did not say I was the driver but perhaps by even replying to NCP I make myself the driver by default. Is that right?

 

after the time or not I did fire off and appeal and have the receipt for that.

See attached. Some time late I got a letter from Trace then it seems I was bounced over to BW.

 

I never herd back from NPC regarding my appeal. Total radio silence. Then came the Trace letters and then BW

 

I did send a bit of snot over to NCP.

As I was using this car park on a daily basis for some months I did capture on day the pic with the masking tape on it just by chance.

 

Apart from that I was using the NCP payment app which did or did not work depending on the day.

Talk about bugware!

 

I do have some 4 months of payment history within the app.

 

so my point is that these machines do go wrong from time to time.

I did not put the tape on there but someone did!

No, not all all.  It's up to them to prove you were the driver.  Well done in not telling them!

 

Remember in all this you are legally in the right.  Their parking fee was paid.  You're not trying to "get out" of something you owe.  They are in the wrong as far as the law goes.

 

So how about sending them something like -

 

Dear BW Legal,

 

cheers for your Letter Before Claim.

 

I don't earn owe your clients a bean, indeed your clients owe the driver of the vehicle who paid the parking fee - twice.  It is your clients' responsibility if the machines they buy second hand on eBay don't work properly because they're too tight to pay a technician to maintain them.

 

Your clients also gave me to no right of appeal or of paying a discount in contravention of their own industry's Code of Conduct.

 

You can either drop this foolishness now or your clients can get a good hiding in court, both are fine by me.  I fancy a winter holiday and I fancy financing it by an unreasonable costs order under CPR27.14(2)(g).

 

COPIED TO NCP

 

The reason i say to send to NCP too is because unscrupulous solicitors are well into their clients starting claims which are bound to lose, after all they get the £££ in any case.

ok DX I'll stick to pdf's. Posting those pix's were something of an afterthought.

I certainly like Dave's letter. I think I'll go with that. I'll give it a bit of a tweak and send it to them in an e mail. That way they can't BS me and say it never reached 'em.

 

Yeah, good t' go! I'll update when I have more ....

 

Have a great weekend!
