  3. Hi all. I've tried to post before but I'm not very good at this sort of thing. After 2 letters we got an offer today on our joint account. It is just over £100 less than the £2100 we were after, but we are accepting anyway. The acceptance letter has no conditions attached at all. Can I right back saying we accept but only if they stop imposing the charges? Im also writing back asking for £800 on my account. Good luck to all.:)

     

    please ensure that you have other banking facilities in place before going after them again, its not uncommon for them to close accounts of people who claim more than once

  4. Thanks mate, yeah thats what i thought. It was a friend of my mums who had her account closed after she claimed £4000 back from them. I had a look earlier at the NatWest accounts and i was wondering if you can get an unauthorised overdraft charge with the step account, as theres no overdraft facility with it. Is that what makes that account a good one to change to?

     

    Thanks

    well mostly because of the fact its one of the easiest ones to get approved for, even if your credit score is a little less than perfect

  5. unfortunately its quite complicated due to it not being controlled entirely from the bank, they can affect your credit file by saying that you owe them money, even if they decided to amend the file, the other agencies who reference from it would already have a seperate profile of you and so on, in any case even if the slate was wiped clean today it could be up to a year until you would see any benefit, and in some cases even longer

  6. how much was the dr- interest , amounting to?

     

    you're absolutely sure you went over your o/d? hmm....... sometimes the bank used to in the past have some leeway (sp?) over the charges, i had some refunded years ago , ofcourse they cant do it anymore, but maybe they looked at your accoutn and thought , well he looks

    ok lets not charge him,

     

     

    ok you can stop laughing now

  7. dont worry about confusing them, they will know whats coming anyway, the wording that you quoted is standard waffle, they have tp put this out to make it appear that everything is legitimate, and also to try and dissuade you, but you know better ;) ,

     

    yes hsbc have closed accounts down, but only as far as im aware for those that claim twice, dont seperate the refund requests unlesss the amount goes over £5k

  8. To be honest not sure where you stand if you have not already asked for yor interest back. I would just send a letter asking for the additional £59.00 (mine was an additional £64 and they have now said they will refund this so keep going!). The additional interest is an additional 8% on top of the charges you have claimed so in your case an additional £43.00 - would say you can not then add the interest charges on to your claim when you get to the MCOL stage but may be wrong - any other opinions???

     

    the 8% interest is an apr i.e 8% of the amount for every year since the charge, so it will be more than £44

  9. cant go back beyonf 6 years as they arent required by law to hold information this far back, which means that even though they prob do have it they dont have to disclose it to you as they can say they dont have it, so you wont see anything beyond 6 years
