  4. Honey28 I lodged mine with laganside first but they told me to lodge in UK if i could as NI small claims limit is £2k. I have a property in UK, as you need a UK address for moneyclaim, so used moneyclaim like everyone else on this site and it worked a treat!

  13. Quick update folks Small Claims Process started, the limit for small claims here in Northern Ireland is £2k plus costs and interest, so claimed £2k plus court costs and interest. Will keep you advised !!!
  14. Thanks Michael For the sake of a few days I will wait until 29th then issue the claim Cheers
  15. Hi All Halifax just written back and said they dont owe me anything relating to this claim so thats the end of it as far as they are concerned. Do I need to wait for the full 14 days from first sending the LBA or can I file the small claim today! Thanks
  16. Thanks Clayts, from what i read i understand that to be the case. I am in Northern Ireland, and the small claims limit is £2k, plus interest and charges. so my claim will be for the full £2k plus interest and charges !!! Will keep you posted on developments
  17. Just had the man from the Halifax on the phone this morning offering £250, I said no, so he said his limit was £500, I refused that also saying i wanted FULL refund. He said he would put his offer in writing anyhow, and if i wanted to persue full amount then I would need to go to court where Halifax would defend any claim ! Another 12 or so days until I can start small claims process!!
  18. Received reply today - standard letter saying they will reply within 4 weeks. I am going to send the LBA on day 15 anyway as they has not settled, is this the correct procedure? Also should i send the LBA to the branch, thats where i sent the first letter, or to the address in Leeds where their reply has just come from? Thanks
  19. Well now 12 days since I sent Halifax first letter, it went special delivery, so i know they got it. Is it common not to receive a reply? Anyhow prepared second lletter today, just need to wait a few more days before posting.
  20. Yes the Small Claims limit of £2k in Northern Ireland is a biit of a pain, but remember is £2k limit, excluding interest and court fees. Also, you can now process your claim online in Northern Ireland with NI Courts Service Mark
  21. Thanks Preparing my attack on the Ulster Bank as we speak!
