  1. Hi DXThanks for your prompt reply, noted that I left my name showing but not overally concerened about this unless it is against forum rules.Noted your comments with regards additional interest but I am sure I have read or been informed that this is OK to reclaim?? Is there a standard reply with regards the admin charges on how I can justify that these are in fact unlawful and unjustified? Any help would be appreciatedRegardsSteve
  2. Good Afternoon All,Happy Friday, well I received a very quick reply from GE Money virtually saying thanks for the letter but get lost because we are right. They are saying that they are well within there rights to charge £40 admin fees and I signed up for that at the start with the credit agreement. They are asking why I think it should be less? I am a little confused how to reply, I am attaching the letter back from them along with the initial credit agreement we signed .Please could someone have a look and see if I can at least reply and say you are wrong and the amount charged was illegal . I am also attaching the letter which I sent them which shows In total for a £2k0 loan I have paid back over £61k ( average £745 per month) through 82 months of the original loan period of 180 months, if I would have continued to pay at this rate I would have paid back a staggering £134k I know everyone is busy but if anyone could help I would be very grateful Regards Steve
  3. Morning All Letter sent 24th April recorded post for charges and additional interest, they have now sent me a letter saying they have 8 weeks to look into this?? Is this correct?
  4. Can anyone please advise what cover letter should go with this claim ? Your help would be appreciated
  5. Thanks Sheila I have looked at yout thread at that just makes me even more determined to get these people Good luck and I will keep you as updated as possible Thanks Steve
  6. Hi DX Can you point me in the right direction of the foscisheet?? Thanks Steve the blues a bit dark for the text. if that a reclaim spread you can't reclaim additional or any interest entries. as this is a secured loan that they charged int on the bal every month [inc the PENALTY] charges] you should be using the foscisheet. dx
  7. Hi dx Can you see the excel sheet that is attached, has all the details Thanks Steve
  8. [ATTACH]42796[/ATTACH] [ATTACH]42796[/ATTACH] Good evening, I have been reading some of the forums recently with regards to GE Money and would like some of your expert advice please. Let me summarize... Took out a loan for £26,000 ( Secured) in March 2005 over a 15 year period Had difficulties early on in the loan and started to incur some charges and additional interest, this was then on/off like this for the next 7 years. With repayment plans put into place etc etc Seperated from my Ex Wife in 2011 and ended up having to sell the house for a large loss due to pressure from GE Money & Halifax Paid off the GE Money loan in January 2012 Now....I am ready to take these guys on :mad2:, I requested a SAR which came within 2 weeks (yesterday), I have been through this document today and the anger grew as I listed all the charges that had been applied to the account over the 7 year period!!! It seems to be over £7,000 pounds in admin fee's, additional interest, solicitors fees, lunch for GE directors ( made that one up ) and I am very very confused how they distributed the final payment which I will summarize later. I am going to attached a full excel spreadsheet showing my findings but below is a brief summary which may give you some idea of what I want to claim and if I can?? Charges I think I can claim NARRATIVEFEEADDITIONAL INTEREST£3,387.61 ADMINISTRATION FEE£2,000.00 SOLICITOR INTERIM LEGAL FEES£1,089.86 INCOME ON EARLY SETTLEMENT£353.92 REFUND OVERPAYMENT 999999 CHAP£204.16 INTEREST DUE DATE CHANGE£130.01 REPAYMENT OF ADMIN CHARGE£84.00 DD RECALL CHARGE£65.00 DEFAULT NOTICE CHARGE£65.00 INTEREST ADJ£5.38 £7,384.94 Summary of the loan ACTUALTOTAL MORTGAGE PAYMENTS£33,111.02 FINAL PAYMENT£28,006.26 £61,117.288 2MONTHS LESS INITIAL LOAN AMOUNT£26,000.00£745.33TOTAL COST OF LOAN£35,117.28ORIGINAL LOAN PLANINITIAL LOAN AMOUNT£26,000.00180£404.76 Months/Payment£72,856.80 In the 82 months I was paying this loan my average monthly payment was £745.33!!!!!!!!!
