halifax charges free statements in Halifax Bank and Bank of Scotland Posted June 7, 2006 I telephoned the Halifax prior to sending my letter on 2nd June to ask if there were a fee. The girl checked with her supervisor before confirming that no fee was payable. Needless to say, having sent the first letter with no fee I have received a reply informing me that they cannot proceed without a £10 fee.......... Anyone know how we can access recordings of our phone calls? There is a maximum amount that they are entitled to charge for a DPA SAR of £10. It will speed up your application if you send or authorise that amount. Whether they choose to take the payment or not is up to them, and in many cases it is charged at £5 or waived by HFX. Not sending the payment delays things, and also allows them to provide the information outside of the DPA and makes it harder to force compliance (in my opinion).
