    Question becky v rbs

    Hi all

    I had ana ccount with RBSicon it went to defualt got a ccj and now paying them off every month.

    last month when i phoned i just asked them for my statemnts and within a couple weeks i had the statements sent to me back dated to 2002 - amazed!!! I didn't send any letter to them or post any cheque for £10

    Now I guess that I can claim for any d/debit cheque refusal charges but before I go ahead ................. what do you reckon about the fact that the banks are being looked at for the charges anyway now? a friend of mine had started to go through a company to help her claim her charges but she was told to hang fire and wait to see what the outcome is first ?????????

    should I ignore this advice and get adding up now ?

    any advice greatly appreciated x

    Hi Becky,

    Its certainly worth getting your preliminary letter in at least so that you are in the system. As part of the fsa waivericon the banks have agreed to waive the limitations where complaints have been made while the claims are on hold.

    All the best

    Thumbs down RBS - is it too late to stop them?

    well.............

    I have 20 k outstanding from RBSicon. Had a loan I couldn't afford in end - I beleive I als had about 6k of charges in that time and probably had PPIicon.

    I adcised them I couldnt pay and they told me to WAIT and let the account go to default- so I agreed .

    I then initially decided to pay 200 per month but as I have a lot of other debt I needed to go to a debt management plan- in the mean time they ccj'd me and I was told to pay 71 per motnh. I do this and I think I have done for about 2 years now. The DMP wasnt for me and so I have paid the account off directly to rbs.

    Today I have had a letter from them I have to go to court on March 2nd because they have decided it will take 27 years to pay off and they arent happy to wait that that long! I phoned some person (who I had to remind to speak to me in an appropriate manner! - I acted dim by messing up but really im not!)

    He has said they will be asking for payment now and if I dont comply then they will put an order against my home !!!!! This has made me very upset - the other half doesn't know the half of this and he will not be very happy with me!!!!!!!!!!!

    any sugestions............... ......................... ...........

    Any chance you could scan the letter, remove any personal details like name, address, reference numbers etc, and post it up here for us to see?

    Hi,
    hopefully someone with more legal knowledge will come along to help.

    They have stated that it is going to court on the 2nd March. Have you recieved confirmation from the courts ? [from my limited knowledge, I don't think they can do this, it doesn't give you enough time to challenge them].

    The CCJ was for £71 month. You have complied with the court ruling. They cannot go for a charging order unless you default on the payments.

    Have they actually stated
    1. What your current debt is ?
    2. How much extra they want?
    3. how much you have paid?
    4. Are they adding interest post judgement?

    Monday morning. Speak to the courts.Confirm the date.Is it at your local court, if not you can apply to have it moved or ask for an adjournment. They tend to be very helpful.
    Do a SARicon & CCA Request on RBSicon. This will show whats going on.

    I bet, since the CCJ you haven't recieved a statement.The Banking Codeicon of conduct states that they will give you statements regularly. It doesn't say that people who default will be denied this legal right.

    Default Re: RBS - is it too late to stop them?

    Hi,

    I havent had a statement at all ! I actually pay them 72 per month since the court gave me a ccj - that started with my dmc then I went on to pay 18 per week by standing order.

    They said that due to fact i was apyinf wekly (this is because its easier forr me this way) I was mis-allocated a mnth and I had a snotty letter about this and I called straight away to make the payment - I was then told on the phne that I would not be persued any further ( this happened back in August 2008) I had been threatened at the time with an application of a charging order but I was assured all was ok until now.


    Also , this snotty letter was for the whole original amount outstanding, the new letter 5 months later is for about 2k less.




    I have a Notice of Hering , as I cant scan I will type:

    Its in my local court.

    it states:

    TAKE NOTICE that the hearing for variation will take place on 2nd March at blah at your local court.

    when you should attend ( I boubt very much I can be released ffrom work for this)

    10 minutes has been allowed for the hearing.

    Please note: this may be released to another judge, possibly at a different court.

    Next Page is Appplication notice at Telford county courticon - on 10/01/09 part a:

    We RBSicon apply for an order that the time and rate of payment be re-determined pursuant to CPR 14.13 (1). (2) permission be granted to the claimant to apply for a charging order to secure the instalment judgment.

    Then on next page:


    I wish to rely on the following evidence in support of this application:

    The defendants is indebted to the claimants under account numbers xxxxx proceedings were commenced against the defendant on 22/1/07. The court ordered that the judgement sum of £xxxxx be repaid at the rate of £71 per month.

    If the defendan pays to the claimant the sum of £71 then the debt will be paid in approx 27 years. The defendant owes the sum of £xxxxx to the claimant. At the present time, the claimant has no security or payment of the debt. The claimant therefore wishes to apply for a charging order to secure the debt. If the districe judge is not minded to grant an order that the judgement be varies to forthwith, I respectfully ask the court to grant permission for the claimant to apply for a charging rder to secure the instalment judgement.

    Default Re: RBS - is it too late to stop them?

    Just to add, the bank actually posted me 6 yearsicon staements a while ago when I called - there are about 6k worth of charges on there and I am sure that I am still paying interest because the acc that the 72 goes in to is not my loan acc it is the first bank acc that I had with them.

    To defend the charging order you'll need a full breakdown of what's happend to your accounts post judgment, as a matter of urgency you should make a request for further information. Forward a copy to court.

    Becky, if this does go ahead, you really need to attend this hearing. Send Paul's letter ASAP.

    Now that you have some of the statements, calculate exactly all the interest & charges Post Judgement.

    I am sure that I am still paying interest
    Becky, you have to challenge this. They CANNOT add interest after judgement unless your agreement allows it. If the CO is made up of charges & interest after judgement, they will have to provide the court with proof that they can legally do this. The only way to fight this is to get as much data as possible from the bank.

    Keep us updated

    You say they are applying your £72,00 to another account...can you eleborate.

    It may be the case that RBSicon have been appropriating your payments in a way most beneficial to the bank.

    You'll need to show the judge that you haven't missed a payment on the installment order. There's case law that states if the judgment debtor hasn't defaulted on the installment order then the court shouldn't enforce the debt with a charging order...you will also need to show the judge that you dispute the debt due to unlawfull chgarges and request they provide a copy of the loan agreement. Don't worry we'll help put a sleletin argument together.

    I woud also make a CCA request asap...the bank will refuse to comply, so at the hearing make the judge aware of this and state you need to see a copy of the original agreement's terma and conditions in relation to the banks legal right to levy charges and interest post judgment.
