  1. I haven't been on for a while my claim is on hold,I haven't heard any news on the case that's going on with the FSA and the bank's.Will the court let me know when to restart my claim,as I could really do with the money owed to me NOW,or should restart my claim myself if so how do I do it,any help or advice would be really helpful.

    Thanks alot saintly 1,I guess it's a case of wait and see how much longer the banks can hold out for any idea?Will the court let me know when I can restart my claim asa it seems to be dragging on still all good things come to those who wait.
  3. Hi,all I haven't been on for a long time,and need to catch up with things. I had my claim stayed on the 13th of August 2006 at Edmonton CC what do I do now in light of the test case discision.Can I restart my claim and how do I go about it,any info would be a great help,THANKS,
  4. Iwent to court today and my case was stayed pending the outcome of the test case,as regards the court bundle I would still send a copy to the court and the bank so as they can hold it on file and when the courts decide to carry on with the cases they will have all your information to hand and also the bank will know that you mean to see it throu to the end,it will take a while but its worth it in the end as the banks can't justify their charges as they don't reflect their actual cost's. regards Dylon
  5. According to Mr.Cutress the test case is set for the 15 Jan 2008 and should last for a couple of weeks or so,does he think we all came up on the down boat,I would like to bet the banks make it last for longer than that and they will appeal the outcome if falls our way.
  6. Attended court today to try and prevent barclays putting a stay on my claim I meet a James Cutress from barclays who told me he was applying to the court for a stay and he handed me the reasons why they are asking for a stay they are as follows; VARIOUS CLAIMENTS AND BARCLAYS BANK PLC or ABBEY NATIONAL PLC SKELETON ARGUEMENT ON BEHALF OF THE DEFENDENT for hearings on 13 August 2007 1.As has now been reported widley in the press , on Friday 27 July 2007 the OFT and the principal banking institutoins providing current accounts in the uk including the defendant, reached an argreement pursuant to which the OFT has commenced proceedings in a test case in the high court in relation to unauthorised overdraft charges.It is envisaged that the principle arising in the bank charges cases will be covered and finally determined in this test case. 2.Attached to this skeleton arguement is; a. The OFT press release dated 26 July 2007 announcing that it was commencing proceedings in the high court on the 27 July 2007 on the application of the law in respect of unauthorised overdraft charges and b. An OFT question and answer document in respect of that announcement. c. The Agreement between the OFT and the Banks. 3. In light of that test case ,which will seek to expeditiously resolve the applicable legal issues the court is invited to stay the proceedings in the present cases pending the final determination of all the issues in the tset case. Such a stay would facilitate the orderly resolution of these cases, in the interest of all parties and the efficient administration of justice. 4. This court and numerous other county courts have already stayrd proceedings for this reason.In addition,consistent with this invitation, the FOS has decided not to progress complaints about current account charges until the outcome of the test case is known. When Mr.cutress handed it to the judge I said that I objected to the stay and handed over to the judge my objection to the stay after reading it he told me it didn't infringe my human rights as the test case was only a few months away,and any injunctions against the bank would have to filed on a different occasion and that he didn't think the bank would take any actions against me.
  7. Hello to you all,off to court today still haven't heard anything from the court regards a stay, just one question to ask I have been getting all my paperwork together the draft order for directions a,b,c,d, have already been done haven't they?any help would very helpful at this moment as I am not quite sure what to expect at court today.
  8. Do they have to apply in person or can just phone up the court and request it, and as I wasn't informed by the court about the stay who then becomes libel for my costs,also when I turn up on monday can I hand in my objection to the stay who will decide if the stay can be lifted?
  9. Thanks for the reply GuildoT,it is Edmonton county court just got home from work nothing from the court as regards a stay so I will turn up at court on monday if it is stayed who do I claim my loss of earnings from as I haven't been informed about the stay and do you think this is a ploy by the bank to gain the upper hand and get the case thrown out because I wouldn't have attended if I had believed the bank's letter?
  10. One other thing should I still attend court on monday and give my application for removal of a stay to the judge,or will not get see him as a stay has been applied.
  11. I don't know what happened there Iwill continue,"being considered in the test case. We will keep you updated appropriately about the proceedings with the OFT.You can also check the lastest position on our website at Personal Banking - Barclays Personal Banking.

As a general matter,we will ensure that your claim will not be adversely affected by the stay of your court proceedings. yours sincerely Thomas Hickey Legal Clerk Barclays Are the FOS hearing my case or are the county court as all letters have come from the county court.am I right in assuming this."AS a resulkt your case is likely to be put on hold"what if it isn't.
  12. Thank you welshcakes for the email,I received a letter from barclays today it reads like this; Dear Mr.xxxxxxxx Unauthorised Overdraft Cherges["bank charges"] You have referred your complaint about bank charges for determination in court. We believe the chsrges are legal,fair and transparent. Since you filed your claim in Court Barclays [along with a number of other banks]has now become involved in legal proceedings with the Office of Fair Trading["OFT"]in relation to bank charges which we believe will resolve the legal issues regarding the fairness and legality of your bank charges.You should be aware that the bank will immediately apply to the court for an order to stay your action until the resolution of the bank's proceedings with the OFT.As a result your case is likely to be put on hold until the outcome of these proceedings is known. Given this court case we have asked the Financial Ombudsman["FOS"]not to proceed with any other case they are hearing until the test case is resolved.The FOS has indicated that as a general proposition it will indeed not proceed with cases which rely on the legal issues being considered in the test case. We have asked the Financial Services Authority["FSA"] to suspend the normal timetable for dealing with bank charges complaints,and the FSA has agreed to this request
  13. Thanks welshcakes for the quick reply,if you could PM me the example it would help a great deal,asa regards the hearing I state that I would like all the monies back that barclays have taken from me in the way of penalty charges and how the charge does not reflect the true cost of returning a DD or cheque etc.and could the defendent show some proof of this to me and the court!Good or what do you think?
  14. Hi kerryanne, My case is being heard on monday the 13th I haven't heard anything from barclays and I phoned the court today and they told me the case is still on and to turn up and noone from barclays shows to ask for judgement. dylon.
  15. Thanks welshcakes,what do you mean by a breakdown of my costs?by the way I phoned the court again to find out if barclays have requested a stay and as of yet they haven't do you know if there is a time limit on this or can they leave it until the last moment?
