after reading the scottish civil court link in the library, it has come to my attention i will be required to issue two claims, as the amount i want back is for over £750. when i send my letter to the bank should i ask for the full amount, and if i have no success, submitt a claim for say, the last two years charges. can anyone help with this?

Hi there i am sure i read in the library part of this site that it is possible and best to have separate claims in Scotland as the amount for small claims court is so small. That's what i am going to do if you ask your bank for a list of charges then you can use them up to the value of £750 then for your next claim carry on from where you stopped - hope this makes sense!

would you make simaltaneous(sp) claims to cover the full amount, or submit them chronologically one after the other as each one is settled? Iam waiting for my DPA request to be answered, but my rough estimate from the statements I have is over £1400.

What is the next level up from the sherriffs small claim court? I have skimmed through the scottish courts site, but came to no definite conclusion. :?


Bank of Scotland round 1: £740 + costs settled, still sore over the 8% grrr

Bank of Scotland round 2: £629 +101.15 interest +£39 costs settled.

You wouldn't have read that it was possible to divide your claim. You would have read that we don't really know and that it could be tried.

So try it, but do them one at a time because of you try to do them al at the same time then they might try to consolidate the claim.

(You might have read that too.)

Hello There, sorry we cannot report much success yet - our original request was served and started running from 12th March.

 

As of today 6th June, we have had the following response:

 

Out of 9 accounts, we have received PARTIAL data for ONE. We have served legal notice of default, recorded delivery reminders, still precious little. We have had requests to prove identity (by post, to our accepted business address!) WELL after the 40-day limit. I am currently investigating the court option. I've also now appending a request for their CTI telephony log (which will prove harassment) - don't expect anything to come from that initially either!

 

I'm about to draft notice to the various authorities, but I suspect Court or the Police will be the only way. I hope to speak to the Police tomorrow as there is the possibility they may have some Jurisdiction.

 

Anyone been down this route with Halifax/BOS in Scotland before?

 

Good luck, and keep us posted!

    • Dodgeball is referring to Bailiff fees and not Warrant or Writ application fees.
    • This is County Court Bailiffs not HCEO..there is only one fee  £110.   https://www.gov.uk/make-court-claim-for-money/enforce-a-judgment   " I read that you can include all CCJ's in one application - saving money on fees and making just one monthly payment. Irrelevant as total debt has to be below £5k. "   Incorrect one CCJ per N245..you can bulk CCJs on to a Time Order/DRO/Bankruptcy 
    • always plead guilty and say yo will attend that way if you cant settle OOC on the day you are there in person to covey your remorse to the judge personally.   it will be more than the £225 quote with victim surcharges etc on top but that does rule out the possibility of still settling on te day by talking to the TfL prosecutor before you go in   there are various threads here that has had that happen.   if you can find them, i'll do it later
    • Along with this is a: tomlin order schedule customer account transactions summary customer account transactions listed between November 2008 and jan 2019 - the last payment being March 2017 then further items on invoice listed between November 2008 and September 2010   2019-04-18_195659.pdf
    • Just an update since I received a letter for a SJPN today... so I am being charged under "...Byelaw 17(1) of the Transport for London Railway Byelaws made under paragraph 26 of Schedule 11 to the Greater London Authority Act 1999 and confirmed under section 67 of the Transport Act 1962."   Application is being made for a £225 contribution towards the costs of TfL. Further costs may be incurred if additional documentation is required or if the matter is not resolved by a SJ.   What would peoples recommendation be, pleading guilty with or without going to court? They did put on the cover letter that if I plead guilty then "...you will usually get a 33% reduction...' But obviously it's not guaranteed since they used the word usually.   Lastly is the fine going to be the £225 they've stated in the SJPN plus the fare avoided? Or is this the cost of raising the SJPN.   Thanks

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.
