  1. Hi, I am new to this form, and will appreciate help and advise..... I have a buy to let mortgage with West Bromich, I have a tracker mortgage paying 1.49%, Today I have recieved a letter informing me that they are increasing the additional percentage of the interest paid by 2%, increasing it from 1.49% to 3.49%. they site increasing cost of funding to support investment in properties and the fact that I have other investment properties as if they are targeting this group. in addition to advise re my options, I will be grateful if any can advise about; 1. The legal
  2. On April 8 2011, whilst doing some banking as POA on behalf of my mother inside her Halifax on-line bank account, I was tempted by a banner advertisement which purported to be a promotion for a new limited offer account called the Web Saver Reward with an interest rate of 2.8%, paid annually. At that time my mother had a savings account with Halifax delivering 2.3% interest, *holding about £40,000, so it seemed sensible to take advantage of an extra .5% Clicking the ad. led straight to an on-line application form, entitled Variable rate Web Saver Application. Within that form th
  3. I have just received my annual loan statement from Sainsbury's - and am not happy.

Also, although I never thought I had PPI on this - and indeed refused it during the telephone application, the
  4. Interest rates remain at 0.50% and banks such as Halifax and others have increased repayments as of this month. How can this be allowed?
  5. Over three years on from the bailouts and taxpayers are sitting on a huge loss running into billions and billions of pounds. The Bank of England have kept rates at 0.5% yet major banks have announced rises in variable intersted base rates. It's not right that families struggling to pay their rising costs now face an increase in monthly mortgage interest rates despite no hike from the Bank of England. Is this how shareholders should be repaid? The govenment needs to step in and force the banking groups that have been Nationalised to reduce their rates NOW back in line with th
  6. Following the suggestion that on-line government petitions might be used as a means of direct action and could result in the most popular petitions ending up as private members' bills, I was somewhat surprised to find there are currently NO petitions open on the new goverment site. I am assuming the site is open and ready for business? I think we should hit the most obvious and least controversial issues hardest. (I realise there is no such thing as a non-controversial issue - I was just jesting!). However, although I have never fallen foul of them, my blood boils everytime I see a tv adv
