The system was installed without the insulation inspection. unbeknown to myself. hen applying for FIT payments
when applying for FIT registration we had no certificate. MainFrame sent person to inspect and we were below standard, Had to insulate attic bedroom.
we then passed inspection but lost 3 months payments from panels. We were assured that the 3 monthly payments would cover the financing of the panels. After 1 years readings the short fall is about £1000. Monthly payments are £154 and we are lucke
if we get £ 60 -70 per quarter from fit payments. We said from the start that we could not afford to pay out any money.We( I say we but my husband died in January) were assured from the first appointment that we would not be out of pocket. I continually emphasized that we were pensioners and had no spare money, I now have even less!
The salesman was very glib, personable and seemed a nice guy. The salesman actually did a bunk on us and Nain Frame and I believe there are other people who were hoodwinked by yhe sales,
man and his partner. The MainFrame manager assured me that payments from FIT would even out over the year and would cover financing but they have not..
I have been in touch with Shawbrooks the financing co. I have funds to pay them for 3 months . After that I will not have enought from my pension to make the payments, I have to send them a copy of my husbands death certificate and give details of my predicament.
I have tried to be concise with facts. The blow by blow account is rather long..Incorredt predictions, shortage of 1 panel so system didn;, work properly
AS I saif
exscuse me hitting wrong keys all the time!
as I said I have been advised by
recc to go to Arbitration and just really need confirmation that that is a good route to take. I cannot afford solicitors fees.
But in terms of summer payments, how much do you get? What is the output of your system?
Feed in Tariff payments from 21/12/2012 to 24/12/2013 total £456.30
12 monthly payments to Shawbrooks@£157.92 = £1895.04 A difference of £1438.74. Summer payment are obviously higher than winter months.but the total payments do not cover financing as promised.
Its on the basis that the output does not cover the finance you are mis sold?
If you can not afford Court then I would certainly go through Arbitration.
If they have failed to carry out works then they are in breach of Section 13 of the Sale and Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982 by failing to act with all reasonable skill and care.
If they have also said that the money could cover the finance, this is breach of contract by misrepresentation. This is where one party is induced into a contract by the words of another.
Here is the promise about finance and cover the cost via FiT
So yes, you should go through Arbitration if you can not afford Court
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Thanks for confirming what I thought was best route for me. I will put it in the hands of the Arbitration team and will just have to accept their decision. I really do not want to stretch this thing out. My health has not been so good since my husbands demise. It will and is improving but my body just went into shut down mode after the intensive nursing of my husband and general coping plus nasty virus.
Thanks for advice
