  6. Thank you for taking the time to reply Welshcakes - much appreicated. I'm waiting for their reply to my compaint so I'll update here in case anyone else is interested.
  7. I had £1000 in a Barclays 'Instant Savings' account for the last year and noticed I'd only been paid £0.59 interest. I opened this account in 1999 and the interest rate was 4.5%. When I asked where the interest was they said the 'Instant Savings' account had been withdrawn 4 years ago and it now only paid 0.15%! I asked them why they hadn't written to me or upgraded my account but they said adverts were put in the national press and that was all they were required to do. After all the con jobs Barclays have pulled on me (rip-off bank charges, unrequested additions account upgrades, unrequested PPI added to loan) I guess I shouldn't be surprised but I actually am. Has anyone else had experience of this? Any thoughts welcome
  8. Thanks for the heads up just Sky+ed it. Contains strong language! Oh Barclays you horrible people... "You've just got to stand your ground. They will start shouting, being abusive, crying, start blaming you, my kids going to starve. My attitude is look, I don't know you, I don't care" Barclays training session from tonights Whistleblower
  9. http://www.bbc.co.uk/mediaselector/check/player/nol/newsid_6470000/newsid_6473700?redirect=6473757.stm&bbwm=1&bbram=1&nbwm=1&nbram=1&news=1 Interesting under cover investigation of Barlcays practices including signing people up to Additions accounts without permission. "The events aren't representative of the way we do business" Really? That's pretty much exactly my experience of the way you do business.
  10. I've recently got a property pack for the house we're trying to buy and my conveyencer got a report from a company called ChancelCheck. The report says that my house is 'located within the historical boundary of a parish which continues to have a potential chancel repair liability based upon historical parish boundary data...' They then proceed to try and sell me some insurance against any possible bill from the local church for repairs! Has anyone heard of this and is it for real or just another way to sell insurance to the paranoid? It seems a bit extraordinary that in 2006 the church could demand money from the community.
  11. Just thought I'd conclude in case anyone is in the same situation that the Letting Agency consulted their lawyers and realised they were wrong (!) Thanks for all the advice people
  12. If you phone the regular customer services number you can make the DPA request over the phone. That seemed to work fine for me, I had my statements back within the week. Good luck
  13. Thanks very much for the input everyone, I'll certainly be having a look for any similar clause in our contract Spiceskull. Our Landlords must beleive a similar condition is in place.
  14. "The Tenants shall have the right to terminate the tenancy at the end of the first six month period by giving to the Landlords not less than two months notice in writing to that effect..." My landlords are saying that means at 6 months I can give them 2 months notice and move out after 8 months but to me it seems clear that I can give notice at 4 months and move out after 6. Does anyone have any thoughts or advice please?
  15. Five News are leading on the OFT announcement in their news at 1730.
