  5. Well it is 3yrs ago - November 2006 - that we first started the ball rolling with Lloyds and we were stayed 3 weeks before our court date. We filed our claim on the 7th March 2007. I'm not giving this up - I am going to drop the letter asking for the stay to be lifted into the courts tomorrow. They denied us our day in court two and a half years ago, they are not doing it again.
  6. I thought I would just update this as you never know, it may happen to someone else As it stands at present, there is no-one to claim off - my mums insurance company is trying to claim off the insurance of the owner of the yard from which it was stolen from. Basically it was a lorry breakers / scrapyard - fence scaled, lorry hotwired and rammed through fence gates (very action film-ish). Now the lorry was uninsured but the yard was insured, that is what her insurance company are arguing but it is likely to drag on and on. In the end she did pay for a hire car - a fiesta - and hired it for 2 weeks when hers was off the road for 3 weeks. So it is just a case of wait and see if she can claim it back. The MIB excess is £300 (if I remember correctly) and the car cost her that, plus her excess so she should hopefully be able to get some back....eventually Thanks for your advice - this is the report of it if you are interested. So very, very lucky no-one was killed. Stolen lorry leaves trail of destruction in Blackburn suburb (From Lancashire Telegraph)
  7. Hello all Just a quick question which I am really sure is simple to answer for those of you in the know Last week, a stolen lorry ran into my mums car and caused quite a lot of damage (my sisters car was also written off). Garage has called today to say that they expect to have the car in for repairs for at least 3 weeks but will not give her a courtesy car. Would my mum be able to hire a car for the time hers is in the garage and then claim it back? She is with Direct Line, who I presume will be claiming from the insurance company of the Lorry.... (just an assumption on my part, have no idea but they do know which company the lorry belonged to) Car hire costs are about £150 a week and that is for the same car as hers. She can't ring Direct Line until the morning so any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
  8. The article has changed since it was first posted.
  9. Almost two years to the day since my claim was put into the system, good news arrives. It has been my thinking for a while now that the banks would do well to pay out, as it may well get the economy moving. Estimates that there is up to £1b pounds to pay back to customers is a huge amount of money. There will be an awful lot of people (myself included) who will spend their refunds on treats for themselves rather than save it which will be a great boost to the economy in the times that we are in. Hopefully the banks will give up the fight now and the OFT will move quickly. Fingers crossed
  10. Hello all Just checking in as it is 12mths since we issued the claim and we are still waiting. Aah well, it'll be nice when we finally get it
  11. Until you hear from the court, assume that it is going ahead. It might be worth giving them a call, asking if Lloyds have applied for a stay - they most likely have - and then you will have to decide if you want to oppose it or not.
  12. Our hearing was next Wednesday but it has been stayed - been told there is no point wasting our money and appealing.
  13. Aw Bev, never mind...we're still in the same boat Sounds like your husband did a fab job though.
  14. Good luck Bev - fingers crossed it goes ok. xx
  15. I know - can't tell you how gutted I am. You wait soooo long for a date and then three weeks before they do this. :-x Never mind, we are on £7 a week interest so it will soon add up. What I do wonder though is if we will get the full amount that we are claiming for back. Say, for example, the charges are deemed as unfair (which they will be), but it is said that £10 is fair, will we only get the difference between the two? Oh I don't know!!
