Hi all

 

Been inspired by peoples stories on this website and decided to look at my Halifax account, WOW over 6 years I was charged £2,053.00 in chages.

 

So, First letter written today and in envelope ready to post by special delivery tomorrow !

 

Branch in question is Halifax Middlesbrough, anyone else dealing with that branch?

 

Will keep you posted..

 

PS. ANYONE CLAIMED AGAINST ULSTER BANK IN NORTHERN IRELAND? I WOULD BE INTERESED TO HEAR FROM YOU!!!

Good luck with your claim :)

 

I'm not dealing with your branch, but it seems some branches are handling them differently - eg in my case I didn't get an offer, just a load of old guff about Financial Ombudsman etc. Some branches pass them (probably correctly) along the line to Head Office who may make a derisory offer.

 

Sorry can't help on Ulster Bank - try a forum search ?

Well now 12 days since I sent Halifax first letter, it went special delivery, so i know they got it.

 

Is it common not to receive a reply?

 

Anyhow prepared second lletter today, just need to wait a few more days before posting.

Received reply today - standard letter saying they will reply within 4 weeks.

 

I am going to send the LBA on day 15 anyway as they has not settled, is this the correct procedure?

 

Also should i send the LBA to the branch, thats where i sent the first letter, or to the address in Leeds where their reply has just come from?

 

Thanks

Just had the man from the Halifax on the phone this morning offering £250, I said no, so he said his limit was £500, I refused that also saying i wanted FULL refund.

 

He said he would put his offer in writing anyhow, and if i wanted to persue full amount then I would need to go to court where Halifax would defend any claim !

 

Another 12 or so days until I can start small claims process!!

Yes, sadly this is correct : Halifax will not buckle until Moneyclaim is filed :( They will settle though - no-one here has gone to court, despite their feeble threats.

Thanks Clayts, from what i read i understand that to be the case. I am in Northern Ireland, and the small claims limit is £2k, plus interest and charges. so my claim will be for the full £2k plus interest and charges !!!

 

Will keep you posted on developments

Hi All

 

Halifax just written back and said they dont owe me anything relating to this claim so thats the end of it as far as they are concerned.

 

Do I need to wait for the full 14 days from first sending the LBA or can I file the small claim today!

 

Thanks
