Hello All


I have just totaled the maintenance charges on my RBS account and I am about to start claiming the money back from the bank.


I have in the past claimed the £38 paid refferal charges over the same period, but missed the £28 maintenace charges.


Has anyone claimed the £28 maintenance charges back.


Also when the maintenance charges were taken, there was also an interest charge can I claim any of this back.




the fight is right

If you look at this link here you will see its just another name for an unauthorised overdraft charge. So yes you can claim it back.






I am not a legal expert my advice is given without prejudice and is purely my opinion only. If you are in doubt please seek professional advice.

Thanks likelylad

I have sent off the first letter, but just received another charge for £28 quid putting over my overdraft limit again.

Is there anything I can do to stop this madness now without going to court or do I just add it on to the rest of my claim.

I received a reply from RBS about my claim, they say until the out come of the OFT test case the they have asked the Financial Services Authority (FSA) to suspend the normal timetable for dealing with bank charge complains and therefore are no dealing with any complaints.


They say the the FSA has indicated that as a general proposition it will indeed not proceed with cases which will rely on legal issues being considered in the test case.


They also say the master of the rolls (in england and wales) and the the lord chief justice in northern ireland has issued a notification suggesting that the county courts stay proceeding until the test case is resolved.


Is the true, I think it could be a smoke screen, should I continue with the next stage informing them that I am about to initiate court proceedings?


Can anyone help.

You can carry on with your claim. Also don't forget you can add on any new charges you receive on to your spread sheet, right up till you file at court. ;)


So if you sent your prelim letter and your 14 days are up, then send the lba letter.


Once you file at court (14 days after lba) They will more than likely put a stay on it, but at least your claim will be in the system.

Thanks sea-sidelady

I am starting the court action this week.

It looks like OFT court case could go on for some time before a resolution is found, months rather than weeks by then there will be a lot of cases backed.

    • My opinion, for what it's worth, is that this offer is the BC Cust'r Services response to a complaint and perhaps NOT the legal team's response to the court claim that's been filed.   What's the date by which Barclays t/a BC have to defend after acknowledging the claim.
    • Yeah this is the response they have sent.   Sorry, I emailed instead of posting. 
    • might be better to send the Scottish version if the debts were taken out whilst he was resident in Scotland.   ?
    • In any case, they only take over the authorities part in the enforcement process, so the contact and behaviour of the EA are not affected, different law.   You can still ring the authority in any case, the administrator is under the same obligation to withdraw warrants if needed.   seems to me that you have accumulated so much information which is either inaccurate or not applicable to your situation that you are stifled under the weight of it.   Firstly I would like to know how the bailiff was able to acquire a LO after six years. if as you say the authority got one at the onset, I would like to know who gave them a warrant after six years from the LO being issued.CPR83

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
      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.

      Do you have a mortage arears claim to make? Then post your story on the forum here
