  1. Hi, Has anyone seen this report? Does anyone have anymore info on this or any comments? It makes me think that the outcome has already been decided! BBC NEWS | Business | OFT may compromise on bank case Yvette
  2. Hi, Got a letter today from the court, dated 30th August to tell me my case has been stayed until the outcome of the test case. Although it appears that Deputy District Judge Harris orderd this on 16th August. Its says "This order has been made in the absence of the parties", does that mean that YB didn't even make an application? That the judge is just staying all cases? Where it says I have 7 days after service of this order to make an application to set aside, vary or discharge, is it 7 days from the day I received it or the 30th August the date they have put on it? I have no idea what I'm going to do next, I think I'll just sit it out! It all seems so pointless now. Yvette
  3. Hi, I haven't heard anything from YB or the local court yet! It's nearly 2 weeks now, Should I contact either of them myself? Also, from reading the threads on here most people seem to have had a letter offering them a £200.00 goodwill payment in full and final settlement. They have never made me any kind of offer, are they hit and miss with these offers? Thanks Yvette
  4. Thanks Caro, Yes I've handed in all my letters and paid my fee. Found the office ok, I actually knew the lady who served me at the counter, one of her children went to school with one of mine! I felt a bit awkward at first, but she knew what it was all about. She said they had piles of these cases to deal with but no extra help to process them. I have a question regarding YB applying for a stay? Northampton County Court transferred my case to my local court on 01/08/07, in the details there is this:- Between Yvette18 Case Number ######## and Yorkshire Bank Before District Judge Murdoch Sitting at Northampton County Court Withour hearing IT IS ORDERED THAT:- 1. The filing of an allocation questionnaire be dispensed with in this case unless the District Judge at the court of transfer orders otherwise.** Note: Any party affected by this Order may under rule 3.3 (5) apply to have it set aside, varied or stayed. Such a party must apply under Rule 23.3 within 14 days of service of this order. **Please note that an allocation fee may be payable in this instance. Please contact the court of transfer for further details. Date order drawn: 01 August 2007 SP Copied word for word. Now my question is about the NOTE. Does it mean that YB have 14 days from 01 August 2007 to apply for a stay? Or could someone explain what Rule 3.3 (5) and Rule 23.3 mean to me please Thanks Yvette
  5. Hi, Thanks Caro. Just to clarify, when I go to pay the AQ fee of £100.00, I need to have a copy of the Draft Directions made applicable to my case? I've never had to go this far before and have always done it by MCOL, so not even sure where to when I go to the county court:? . I'll be going there tomorrow in my lunch break. Yvette
  6. Hi, Thanks for your reply Caro, the letter doesn't say "without prejudice". I am just copying the letter for application for removal of stay as you have advised. I have a couple of questions:- As my account with YB was closed 3 years ago should I leave out the last paragraph "In the alternative"? as it will not apply to me? I need to attend the court before the 15th August to pay my £100.00 AQ fee even though it has been dispensed with. Should I hand this letter in at the same time or put it in the post? Who should I address it to? Sorry, a lot of questions I know:) Yvette
  7. Hi, I got two letters in the post today. One from my local court telling about the transfer and the dispensation of the Allocation Questionnaire, but also told me I have to pay £100.00 AQ fee by the 15/8/07 or my case will be struck out! The other one from Yorkshire Bank. I have a feeling a lot of these letters have been received by claimants, I've just read on JunkiMunki's thread that he got one today too! Dated 31/7/07 telling us that they will shortly be applying for the court to put a stay on the claim until the outcome of the test case. How can I fight them putting a stay on the claim? Anyone know? Thanks Yvette
  8. Hi JunkiMunki, I received the same letter today too, dated 31/07/07. I'm not as far along in my claim as you are though, I've just been transferred to my local court last week. Yvette
  9. Hi, My case is now transferred to my local court. Do I wait for a court date? or Can I put together my bundle as soon as possible and send it to YB and the court before I hear anything? YB have until 15th August to apply for it to be stayed. Yvette
  10. Hi, I was just wondering if anyone has had a stay put on their court claim so far? Yvette
  11. Just received a "Notice of Transfer of Proceedings" to my local county court. It says that the filing of an Allocation Questionnaire is dispensed with unless the District judge at my court orders otherwise. There is another note:- "Any party affected by this order may under rule 3.3(5) apply to have it set aside, varied or stayed. Such a party must apply under rule 23.3 within 14 days of service of this order." Is this note referring to the dispensation of the AQ? Any advice and words of wisdom greatfully accepted here! I'm really nervous about this claim. Yvette
  12. Hi All, I've just submitted my claim with MCOL. It's just over £2200 once you add the interest and court fee. I'll let you know when I hear from them! Yvette
  13. Hi Everyone, I have followed all of the steps for reclaiming, my LBA was sent recorded delivery and signed for on 18th June 2007. I make that 19 days ago. I haven't heard a word from them, by post or phone. Now I need reassurance, should I just go ahead and start my court claim? I've been through this with Smile and Alliance & Leicester and won, but Yorkshire Bank make me nervous after reading through other people's threads and what I've seen in the media. I'm greatful for all advice Thanks Yvette
  14. Hi, I've been a bit slow in posting my progress with cap 1, I've been through all the stages, and went to MCOL at the beginning of June, my claim is roughly £450.00. They acknowledged on 11th June with an intention to defend. Today I received a letter saying they will settle my claim without any admission of liability! So I've WON my claim!!! Yvette
  15. Hi, Thanks for all your replies, I will be very wary in future about giving my details to anyone! What I didn't tell "John" when he asked for my employer details was that I am HR, Payroll and Accounts in a small company and I open all the post, so I would have received the letter telling me to deduct from my own salary!!
