    Grenn Deal - A mis-selling scam ?? 4th Oct 17 at 7:56 AM
    Does anyone else have any views or challenged boiler replacement charges under Green Deal. My mother-in-law seems to have been sold a boiler replacement by a slick salesman in 2015. She paid £4000 for a new boiler which should have only cost £1500 max (it was a simple swap with now new pipework). She is also being charged £1500 interest over 10 years, total £5500. At best the new boiler would save her £80 per year as her old one was a reasonably efficient (10 yr old) boiler yet the savings figures used by the salesman quoted the most inefficient 50 yr old boiler to justify the savings. She could have easily afforded the £1500 for a new boiler but was sold/scammed into the Green Deal because it was "sold" as being free from the savings from her bills?
