  1. Hi - I have been checking the info that GMAC gave me for an interest only mortgage, on reading through their tariff booklet and Mortgage Guide 2000, for Interest Rates it says the following: "The interest rate charged will be based on "LIBOR" plus an additional amount (a "margin") e.g.3% over the Libor rate. This means that if LIBOR were at 7%, the interest rate would be 10%. The margin applied will depend on the type of scheme you are taking and your personal and financial circumstances and this will be set out in your Mortgage Offer." OK - I notice that little bit about your circumstances, which sounds like "we will hit you with an enhanced rate if you have any adverse credit" - lol, then says: "To help you understand how a change in the interest rate might affect your monthly payments, a typical example is given below assuming a 3 month LIBOR rate of 7.56% on a mortgage loan attracting interest of 3%, giving a total charging rate of 10.56%. EXAMPLE: Based on a residential, interest only mortgage loan of £50,295 (Initial mortgage loan of £50,000 with a £295 arrangement fee added on a property valued at £75,000 repayable at the end of a 25 year term. Included in the calculation of the total amount payable and APR are: Arrangement fee £295, T.T. fee£30, Non block Insurance fee of £40.00, Valuation fee £220, Legal fees £350, Redemption Admin fee £155 payable at the end of the 25 year mortgage loan term. 300 gross monthly payments of £442.60. Total amount payable £183,905.00. The APR is 11.3% assuming that the 3 month LIBOR remains at 7.56% throughout the 25 year term. For each 1% change in the charging rate, the gross monthly payment would change by £41.91p." Hope this is helpful.
  2. Hi folks. I was wondering, out of interest, if someone could use the LIBOR scandal as a way of getting a default removed from their credit file? I've seen some responses from banks, when asked to remove a default, that they would not because they believed it was correct to place the default on the customer's credit file because it was "a true and accurate reflection of the customer's financial situation at the time", but surely it wasn't, if the banks had been fiddling LIBOR, as this affects credit card interest rates, loan interest rates, etc? Thanks for reading, ML
  3. My mortgage is with the dreaded SPML/Capstan/Acenden and my mortgage rate is supposed to be based on the Libor rate. As we all know this was fixed and the banks were fined. My question is this; How does or can this affect me and my mortgage? Does this mean that I am owed anything back from my "lovely" mortgage lender?
  4. Hi can anyone help me find the historical 3 mnth Sterling LIBOR rates going back to 2007. I have a Kensington Morgage based on these figures. Many thanks Stuart
  5. I have had a Libor based tracker mortgage + 4.2% for the last 8 years. With the findings and ongoing investigation into rate fixing are we going to be able to make claims at some stage ??
  6. THE ARMED FORCES COVENANT (LIBOR) FUND A fund to support the delivery of the armed forces covenant Document Source: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/armed-forces-covenant-libor-fund-successful-projects In December 2012, the importance of the covenant was highlighted by the decision of the Chancellor to transfer £35 million from fines levied on the banks for attempting to manipulate Libor to the MOD for use in supporting the armed forces community. Over 3 tranches, the fund has supported 96 charities and good causes supporting the Armed Forces Community in a variety of ways. Whilst the £35 million fund has closed please keep checking our website for new opportunities for funding including a £10 million per year fund which will open in 2015 or subscribe to our email alerts to find out the latest updates for the armed forces covenant.
  7. Hi, I'm new and maybe in the wrong place but I'm sure someone will help me there. We started a business with a loan from Barclays. The business plan showed a period of 3-4 years to go into profit. It involved converting a country house into self catering holiday accomodation. During the six months it took to sell and purchase properties the interest rate doubled. We were on target time wise and were due to open in the summer, as in the plan. Obviously we were struggling with repayments and had extended the overdraft. On the Friday of a bank holiday weekend we received a letter out of the blue informing us that,words to the effect, 'in our best interests', they had frozen our account. We were still building, so couldn't open and if we sold, we would have lost thousands - and we had four children and nowhere to go. The interest rate being charged was around 20%. The year was 1987. Now I know this is probably too long ago (not long enough as I am sweating thinking about it again) - but Appropos LIBOR fixing I am sure I heard that it has been going on for ages and had influenced those excessive interest rates in the 80's. My question is, if it did and if B did, would the likes of me be entitled to a piece of compensation that sufferers from the last decade will no doubt be getting? Our business never recovered and although we ran it for fourteen years it was always at a loss and had to be subsidised by salaried employment.
  8. Several banks have been fined in this LIBOR situation and the RBS has been involved today according to the news. Can someone please tell me where all of this large amount of money that is exacted in fines goes?
  9. The Financial Services Authority, is investigating claims by a whistleblower that Britain's £300bn wholesale gas market has been "regularly" manipulated by some of the big power companies, exploiting weaknesses that echo the recent Libor scandal. Separately, the energy regulator Ofgem has been warned by a company responsible for setting so-called benchmark prices, ICIS Heren, that it had seen evidence of suspect trading on 28 September, a key date as it marks the end of the gas financial year and can have an important influence on future prices. http://www.guardian.co.uk/business/2012/nov/12/libor-like-manipulation-gas-markets
  10. Hi All, As a business, we borrowed funds from Barclay's by pledging property as security. We fell behind on payments as a result of cash flow issues. I have not seen the clause, but I am sure Barclay's is within their rights to demand that we pay the entire loan off. A sum we cannot afford to pay in its entirety. I had concerns that our loan may have been affected due to LIBOR manipulation. I wrote a detailed letter to the bank manager after receiving their demand letter that I need a detailed explanation of any part that LIBOR may have played in calculating interest rates, early repayment penalties, any origination fee collected up front or paid to third party in commissions as we used a commercial mortgage for this loan. 3 weeks later, Barclay's responded that their internal investigations have discovered that our loan was not affected by LIBOR fiasco as they don't use to LIBOR in all of their loan products. They added that this is their final letter and included information on how to get in touch with Financial Ombudsman. They also added that as part of their settlement with authority they cannot add any further on the details. I assume that includes the detailed information that I requested, they also added that this is their only and final correspondence on the matter. Now, I am sure they will start repossession proceedings at some time in future (I assume they will be swift). How does one really know if Barclay's is representing the right picture? Does one take their word for it? I was actually planning to use this as a defense if we were to reach the courts, a reality we have to face at some point. Any suggestions on this? Thanks, Res
  11. Hey all! Does this mean potentially any loans,mortgages, credit cards etc could of been charged at a higher APR???? If so, are we about too see (like we did with PPI) companies offering 'no win no fee' to reclaim our overpaid costs? Presumably the FSA has to rule on this first like it did with PPI. How many times can the banks be crooks and get away with it! Cheers
