May be worth copying this gentleman on any correspondence you have with Halifax or Bank of Scotland. This text is copied from an HBOS press release:

 

"The Group also confirms that Benny Higgins will join the HBOS Board from Royal Bank of Scotland on 1 May and lead the Retail business. Benny will have responsibility for all the Group's UK Retail operations, including the UK's largest mortgage and savings brands, the intermediary business, the branch and agency network, call centres and estate agency."

Great, these are the kinds of contacts which are useful to know. Anychance of finding out where he is based and any contact details, please?

It would be good practice to copy people like this on any mail and even address them in principal when sendning a letter before action. If it helps to ruffle feathers, then why not?

Considering that the former Chief, James Crosby was also a non-executive director of the body that is supposed to regulate banks (FSA) I will do a little research on their new boss

 

James Crosby

James Crosby joined the FSA Board in January 2004. He is Chief Executive of HBOS Plc and is also a Non-executive Director of ITV plc and Fellow of the ...

Given that this chappy is joining HBOS from the Royal Bank, I'd bet the mortgage that he lives in one of the nicer parts of Edinburgh or the East Lothian commuter belt, his kids go to Stewarts Melville College or another of the upper echelon public schools, and he will be based at the BoS Head Office, The Mound, Edinburgh.

as mentioned Benny Higgins has recently defected from RBS...so expect much of the same at HBOS.

    • 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      
    • Yes and I think I pointed out that the enforceability of the CCA is dependant on more than the document you posted. On its own, the agreement sites all the correct terms and is compliant with section 77. However, it also has to comply with the agreement(copy) you signed, how can anyone who as not seen that document say one way or the other. I went on to explain how it would be impossible to calculate the terms on the second agreement from the first as the first did not exist. I seem to be constantly repeating myself, and I do not see you doing anything to move this case forward. 
    • Thanks dx, will have a look. Thank you.

    • 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.
