    • 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!

Backdoor Lowell CCJ - old Tesco Card Debt - set aside hearing on the 30th..


Recommended Posts

I’ve ended up getting a ccj from Lowell for a tesco credit card, this was put against me in jan 2019 I have only found out about it in March as I had moved and they issued the ccj against my previous property- that’s my defence in the hearing.
 

I straight away applied to get it set aside and the virtual hearing is on the 30th sept 2020

 

I can only assume the attached is their way of getting as much of this money from me as possible? Surely I go through the set aside process then negotiate a settlement.... agreeing to the order I lose the opportunity to negotiate.

 

ant advice would be great

its what lowells always do.

 

can you tell us about the debt history please and the CCJ.

 

you didn't receive the claimform because you failed to update your creditors/debt owners of a move.

so i can't see a reason there to set aside

 

and what defence do you have for the actual debt itself?

what did you put on the N244 for a defence ?

when was the last time you paid anything to anyone?

 

 

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

 

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...

  • dx100uk changed the title to Backdoor Lowell CCJ - old Tesco Card Debt - set aside hearing on the 30th..

Hi dx100uk,

 

Thanks for replying, any advice is appreciated.

 

Took a tesco Credit card out in 2012 all going well until 2015...

got in a spot of criminal bother after a fight on a night out, that lead to me losing my job and struggling very hard

 

I moved out of the apartment I owned to sublet it to pay the mortgage and got swept away with money issues and lost sight of this credit card after I’d maxed it out surviving. 
 

My defence is I didn’t receive it as had moved  had to sell my apartment I was in such a bad way with money, moved in with friends etc.(I dont know much on this subject so am clutching at straws it’s a defence)

 

Last payment was on 15/5/15

 

thanks a lot for your time

pers i think you've wasted that £255

i can't see a set aside reason

i can't see a defence.

 

might be better to agree to that consent order?

A consent order is an agreement from the creditor to set aside, in this case if you agree a repayment plan. It also reduces the cost of the set-aside to £100 rather than £255.

I have been exchanging with their solicitor today to try and negotiate the final settlement but have not managed to budge them, they seem very keen to resolve before the 30th due to Associated costs. Is that a sign they aren't sure how the hearing will pan out? 

 

From the details available what would you do? its been there nearly 3 years already and i've survived so am tempted to take my chances in court and if it fails ride it for another 3 years. 

 

Thanks

well no they are trying to not to lumber you with the extra costs of the hearing surely where you IMHO will lose.

 

does the consent order not already give the figures?

what have you got to negotiate with..nothing i can see 

why do you not agree to their schedule?
