Tayside Area

Recommended Posts

Hi there

 

I am new to all of this and a bit nervous as well. I am at the stage where I have the statements from the BOS and I'm about to start trawling through them.

 

Is there anyone else in the Tayside area that could use some support? Perhaps a group of us could get together to support each other?

Hi there, the 14 days for my final settlement was up yesterday and all they sent me was a letter asking what the original complaint was.. stalling for time i'm sure. I'm not sure how to go about claiming in court, I have all the information ready but I don't know where to send it or take it to... any help would be grateful!

dundeechicken,

 

was your last correspondance your LBA? If so then go to the Scotland sub-forum in General, and Scotia has a sticky post which has links to the court system and form 1 and 1b for you to save and input the info into. You then take a wander down to your local sheriff court and pay your £39. They will then get the summons raised and serve it on the defender. You then have to sit tight for 6 weeks as this is the time allowed up here for the banks to lodge a defence your hearing will be 1 week after the return date.

Thank you, a lot of the posts have been in England and it's hard to follow, my claim is for £1485, will i have to split this into two seperate claims?

It is your choice, you can either do a small claim for max £750 OR you can go for Summary Cause for up to £1500

 

The only difference I can see (May be wrong on this) is that small claim you are 100% protected from footing the banks legal bill, summary cause IF you lose you are liable for at least some of their costs .....

 

Of course you would need to lose the case for this to be a concern.... but it is entirely your call.

 

I totally agree, there appears to be very few of us up here taking the banks on, so it is difficult to see any timeframes ......

Hi Jolly,

 

If you pop over to the Scotland board, Scotia has kindly posted a sticky thread with all the wording already done to use as a template for your claim.

 

Good Luck

    • 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.

    • I am new here but very glad to find my way here and would welcome any input.
       
      i purchased a brand new campervan conversion from Hillside Leisure (175 miles from our home) on July 26th for £31,000 and, within 48 hours, during a storm, the alarm began to sound incessantly. We could not get it to stop, even after trying everything listed in the manual. We phoned Hillside on Saturday July 28th around 2.00pm. The young man who answered the phone said he would seek the advice of their technician and call us back, which he did. The technician told us that they, Hillside, couldn’t help, but that we should take the van to Nissan (the van is a Nissan) as the fault would lie with one of their components.
