    • 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!

I’ve got a letter from cst today.

Haven’t heard from anyone for at least six months and the original alleged fine was on 18.1.19.

 

It seems, from this forum,  that I should send a SAR.

Not sure why.

Can someone help please?

A SAR is designed to force a company to divulge what information they have on you.  We've advised it a couple of times when people have moved and missed a load of important paperwork.  However, it's not appropriate in most cases.

 

As HB says, please tell us a bit about what CST (who they?) are pursuing you for.

We could do with some help from you.

I expect it will be CST Law- a mickey mouse bunch who think they are some sort of legal group.

I assume you have had a private parking ticket and if so is not a fine-only Courts can impose them. what you probably have is a speculative invoice  that you may or not owe.

If you have could you please complete the questions below to help you avoid paying anything. In addition, since the first ticket was received last year have you received a "Letter before Claim" as well?

  Have you received a Parking Ticket?

Hi,

I received the parking ticket in the post a couple of weeks after I was in the car park at Gillingham ice bowl.

 

I’d been waiting for my grandson to come out.

I stayed in the car and because I didn’t know how long he was going to be it didn’t occur to me to pay for parking.

I told them that when I got the fine.

 

After that I ignored them because I was indignant about being fined.

Eventually they stopped although they did change to a different company.

 

I haven’t heard from them for over six months and out of the blue I get this letter.  

I’ve paid for some legal advice which was and wasn’t helpful.

1 The date of infringement? 19.1.19
 

2 Have you yet appealed to the parking company yet? [Y/N?] Yes
 

has there been a response? They did respond but pursued the fine by sending letters roughly once a month 
 

have you received a Notice To Keeper? (NTK) [must be received by you between 29-56 days] I honestly can’t remember 
 

what date is on it I don’t remember the date
 

Did the NTK provide photographic evidence? I seem to recall a photo of my car
 

3 Did the NTK mention Schedule 4 of the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 (PoFA) [Y/N?] Don’t know 
 

4 If you appealed after receiving the NTK,

did the parking company give you any information regarding the further appeals process?

[it is well known that parking companies will reject any appeal whatever the circumstances] I can’t remember 
 

5 Who is the parking company? Premier park ltd
 

6. where exactly [Carpark name and town] did you park? Planet ice Gillingham, Gillingham Business Park, Ambley Rd, Gillingham ME8 0PU

 

  I’ve attached the letter I’ve just received after six months of hearing nothing . It’s like they’ve sold the debt onto CST law for them to try.  Unfortunately after all this time I didn’t think I’d ever hear anything more. 
 

thanks in advance for your help

You did right to ignore various threatening letters, but this is a formal notice of intention to start legal proceedings and so you do need to reply, otherwise you're likely to be taken to court.

 

From your replies to the sticky it seems you haven't got access to the original paperwork which makes it very difficult to work out how to reply and how to see off the claim.

 

When you appealed, did you identify yourself as the driver?

 

Is this ice bowl local to you?  If so then it would be useful to go back and photograph the signs at the same time of day that you were there.

We could do with some help from you.

Yes it’s close by. It was on a Saturday afternoon about 4.20.  They wrote to me as the driver of the vehicle. I neither confirmed nor denied I was the driver, I just said that I hadn’t left my car as I was waiting for my grandson. Should I ask them for a sar to get all the documentation?

I was thinking the same.  It might be a good idea to SAR Premier Park and at the same time write to CST Law and say the incident happened nearly two years ago and you are SARing their client to get to the bottom of it.  There is the risk they could still start court action while you are waiting for the SAR.  However these companies generally don't want to do court if there is an alternative and might hang fire hoping you'll pay them after the SAR (you won't!)

 

I think from a dodgy look on Google Maps that there is a prominent sign about parking at the entrance to the ice rink but yes, go back there and take photos in the evening.  I could be wrong and in any case it might not be illuminated and if you can't see the damn signs at 16:20 in January they might as well not be there!

 

Also I think from Google Maps that the car park is for the sole use of ice rink users.  As well as the above could you get onto the management there and point out your grandson was a genuine customer and so you demand they call Premier Park off.

Thanks for that. Indeed, the sign would literally have to be illuminated as you go in for you to be able to see it! I think I will request the sar tomorrow and send cst a letter with proof if postage. Have you ever heard of them or do you know anything about them?
