  1. Thanks again for all your help. Couldn't have done it without you. So pleased it is over (well this one anyway - Abbey joint account is next). Couldn't have come at a better time either - first baby is due start of May, so all funds needed. One last question - has anyone found that they have more/quicker success getting a second lot of charges back due to having shown the bank they are serious, or have most people not had 2 accounts with the same bank, or claimed both lots of charges at the same time?
  2. Got a letter from Abbey today (11 days before i am due in court), and guess what................... they have offered to settle my claim in full...........£1505.24. Can't believe it is finally going to be over in a few days when i recieve the money. Thank-you all so much for your help and support. I really think i would have chickened out by now otherwise. Abbey basically waited until they received my court bundle before realising i was serious. (They admit no liability of course). For everyone else out there in the process of going for their charges with Abbey, don't give u
  3. Many thanks Nick. Know what you mean about the correspondance trail, ummm'd and arrrr'd about this one, and then due to time restraints decided against. As you say, it's all in the bundle anyway. Just keeping my fingers crossed now that i hear from Abbey.
  4. Thanks Nick - Does the statement of evidence sound ok?
  5. Also with regard to the charges and interest. I added the relevant interest onto schedule when i submitted court paperwork, can i update this to reflect that its been a further 3 months, and recalculate interest? Or do i leave costs as they are? Thanks again
  6. Thanks so much Karnevil, don't know what i would do without you!!!! This is what i have received: NOTICE OF ALLOCATION TO THE SMALL CLAIMS TRACK (HEARING) District Judge xxxx has considered the statements of case and allocation questionaires filed and allocated the claim to the small claims track. The hearing will take place blah, blah, and should take no longer than 1 hour. All parties not less than 21 days before the hearing date must send to the other and to the court office: Typed and signed statements setting out the evidence of all the witnesses on which each party i
  7. BUMP!!! Also, do i need to do a covering statement to go with bundle, or is the original court form enough? Someone please, any info?? Have printed most paperwork off now, and copied all statements/correspondance x 3 copies, but will have to post tomorrow at lastest. Thanks loads
  8. Major panic - have also posted this on general thread for advice.... I had my default judgement set aside on 10th Jan, and was waiting for my allocation questionairre to arrive, for the next step. However, i have now received a court date - 19th Feb, and been told to get court bundle in 21 days before hearing!!!!!! Received this in post Friday!!!!! Called court re: time frame, and they have said get paperwork asap. I have been told by the court, that due to the way my case has been handled - ie. default judgement, and then set aside, i do not have to provide allocation questionairre
  9. Hi I am currently fighting Abbey - see lydia 42 vs Abbey. I had my default judgement set aside on 10th Jan, and was waiting for my allocation questionairre to arrive, for the next step. However, i have now received a court date - 19th Feb, and been told to get court bundle in 21 days before hearing!!!!!! Received this in post Friday!!!!! Called court re: time frame, and they have said get paperwork asap.

  10. Well, had the hearing yesterday. Was only in there about 3 minutes. So relieved that bits out the way. Their solicitor came up to me before hand and introduced herself, and said they were going to ask for costs. When we got in there, the judge asked if i was ok with having the judgement set aside, as he was happy all the paperwork was ok. I agreed. Then Abbey said they wanted costs due to default judgement, and he bluntly said NO! Had to stop myself smiling at that. VERY relieved!!!!! The judge said he would allow approx 1 hour for the real hearing, but turning to Abbey
  11. Thanks guys, feel a lot more positive about it all now. It's been playing on my mind over the Christmas holidays, and i couldn't get on here to ask anyone - left my laptop at work over hols - Doh!!!! I'll let you know what happens on the 10th, although as you say they will get the judgement set aside. Bit of a shame i have to waste time going to court for 10/20 mins, but i'm not going to miss it. Not giving them anything to hold against me if i can help it. Thanks again. By the way, does anyone have a link to the limitations act, so i can read the relevant bits re: claiming the
  12. Will they just add the costs to the case then? Bit confused, as i had to pay £120 to claim in the first place, which had to be paid up front. If they settle, who pays their costs for the hearing? Will i be left with a court bill?
  13. Thanks Karnevil - where can i read the limitations act? Do you have a link? At least this will save me having to alter court paperwork. Do I just state this is court, if the case gets there – saying that I wrote to Abbey on xxxx date, and was within my rights to claim for these charges at the time? My letter was dated 29/8/06. The notice of hearing states (the hearing date is 10 Jan 07): (We) Ashurst (on behalf of) (the defendant) Abbey National Plc intend to apply for an order (a draft of which is attached) that the judgement in default obtained by the claimant against the defe
  14. Hi Mad Nick When i spoke to Abbey (had to call them, on advice of court, to find out what they were going to do with judgement) they said that i could only claim for 6 years from the date the claim was filed, ie. 1st Nov 2006. This means that my charges for Sept 2000, should no longer be included, does it not? I'm really confused now. Should i re-submit particulars of claim? Also, could anyone help with the other queries: Happy New Year everyone. Well over the Christmas hols, i received a copy of the notice of hearing, where Abbey intend to have the default judgement set aside.
