    • 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!

UKCPS MNPR PCN received in allocated bay with valid permit


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

Haven't posted for quite some time but have never had to deal with one of these before.

 

Due to covid and the possibility of having to self isolate with kids going back to school, i have recently been staying with my son at his apartment, he rents from a local agent and the apt has its own allocated parking space.

My son doesn't drive so i have his permission to use  this space and also have his site parking permit displayed in my windscreen.

Received a PCN from UKCPS alleging that my car was parked "without a valid permit or authority", on 23/7/20.

 

Silly of me but without checking i appealed with photo evidence of valid permit but naturally this was rejected. the photos they supplied are unclear and it's not possible to see whether a permit is displayed or not due to glare from the sky and the angle of the windscreen.

 

Final notice received and then further letter, now from Debt recovery plus. It isn't a letter of Claim, just the usual huffing and puffing and quoting beavis etc.

 

Atm i haven't done anything more in response so need to get clued up a bit.

 

Any help much appreciated, i am aware that the lease will outdo any PPC but as my son is not the owner of the apt and i am only staying with him i'm not sure how i can obtain a copy, there is nothing in the tenancy agreement regarding parking or allocated spaces.

 

Thanks in advance

 

Martin

Please Complete This Martin

 

Regardless to it not being your permit nor copy of lease , you have supremacy of contract as they wont know who owns what.

shame you appealed, i suspect you've removed POFA protection by Iding yourself as the driver...but that doesn't really matter in these cases of supremacy of contract as long as the PCN wen to YOU the registered keeper as it should do.

haha

UKPCM up to their usual tricks then.

 

its operator photos so a windscreen PCN should have been issued at the time.

and the Notice to Keeper arrive between 29-56 days

 

its what they call an MNPR 

 

just type in MNPR and you'll soon get the picture

they don't stand a chance

it might even be a local taking the photos and dobbin people in for a backhander from UKPCM

which ofcourse is totally against GDPR rules of handling your data..

  • dx100uk changed the title to UKCPS MNPR PCN received in allocated bay with valid permit

Well its UKCPS unless they are the same people and yes it was MNPR but no PCN left on car, rec'd through post.

Atm i cant find the original PCN but its probably at home, as im high risk category or covid, im currently staying with my son as my mrs is a key worker and we have 3 step kids in school, 2 of which are isolating so i have t stay away as i have no safety net if i have to isolate being self employed.

23-09-2020, 22_47 Office Lens(4).pdf

 

None of their photos clearly show the area where the permit is displayed due to the angle of the windscreen and the sky glare coming back, i have pics showing it is correctly displayed and their own pics show its in the correct bay.

 

All that said, the lease would trump it all anyway but i am here as a guest and my son is the tenant but there is no mention of parking arrangements in his tenancy so im not sure how to go about getting a copy of the lease to beat them with if my pics and video showing the correct dont suffice.

ukcps just a typo martin.

 

you don't really have to really worry

 

just sit tight and await to see if they issue a letter of claim or action.

 

the landlord will have copies of everything if the renters didn't fwd it on as they should do.

Oh dear UKPS are micturating into a Force 10, look at this one where they were tolchocked on a Residential parking issue, the lost a subsequent case where it was shown a Tenant can derogate the space to a guest, so they are a bit knackered
