Hi

 

My OH is claiming credit card charges and the case was stayed pending the outcome of the OFT case - he has applied to have the stay lifted and the hearing is on the 12th Feb, anyone any experience of this? what to expect etc..

 

Any help appreciated:)

Absolutely right. The case should not have been stayed as the test case only refers to bank charges.

:D I think there is a court bundle for credit card claims, if you look through templates you will find it. I dont know if you have done one before, they look worse then they are, very logical once you get into them. They just back up your arguments with the relevant acts of parliament etc.

:rolleyes: well I did one to have my stay lifted on my bank charges claim, judge impressed but it made no difference. Still have to await the outcome of the test case but you should not have had a stay put on a credit card case as they are not involved in the test case at all.

Stayed c/c claims are somewhat different from bank charges ones, as they shouldn't have happened at all.

 

This is the letter I took with me for my B/card one:

 

 

Case xxxxxxxx

 

Bookie v Barclaycard Plc

 

Dear Judge XXX,

 

I respectfully object to the proposed order of a stay in respect of the claim xxxxxxx Bookie v Barclaycard Plc. I respectfully ask that it be refused on the following grounds:

 

This claim xxxxxxxx is in respect of Charges applied to my credit card account. My claim is notconcerning the recovery of current bank account charges. This claim is therefore not affected by the outcome to the OFT test case and should be allowed to proceed to its natural conclusion through the courts.

 

Credit Card charges differ to current account overdraft charges, insofar as there is a clear breach of contract.

Credit card charges could potentially be decided solely on the “penalty” issue of common law, without reference

to the UTCCR which the OFT case focuses on. Furthermore, as there is a clear breach of contract,

there is no question about whether or not the UTCCR applies as it has been held to apply to default provision

in Director General Fair Trading V First National Bank plc [2002] 1 All ER 97.

 

Yours sincerely

 

All you can do is reiterate that c/c are not affected by the test case, but tbh, if your judge is thick enough to have stayed a c/c case, it means he either doesn't care (some courts blanket stayed regardless) or disagrees, so don't be disheartened if you don't succeed. :-)

Thanks he only had to say yes about 5 times and that was it easy - she was a lovely judge and she was very clued up about the test case and knew it was nothing to do with credit cards ;)
