I rang Alex yesterday afternoon and he told me that he was going to have a look at my file and give me a call today.

Well phone was dead, just switched it on and there is a message from Alex saying basically that they are going to settle, they are going to pay the charges plus court and allocation costs - and that I should receive the settlement letter tomorrow. I think the amount they said was not up to date - it was the one I sent to them in October...but I'm not going to haggle over a few quid. So it's almost over...

I don't see any problems with ringing Barclays at this stage as long as you are quite confident on the phone...I use the phone all day and talk to people face to face, so I'm quite confident.

So hopefully get a letter tomorrow, I'll hand it in at the branch tomorrow pm - money probably be in the bank on Mon/Tue!

Thanks to everyone who I've had replies from - and thanks to this site and all its users, mods and owners. Another happy user...

Hi m4n,

 

Does this mean they are not paying the 8% interest and your daily rate of interest?

 

Hope it gets sorted by Monday for you so you can start spending mate.

M4N,

 

Well done to you and Tanz, my AQ went in today so I'm a bit behind you but your info about the court bundle was very helpful to me as I'm in the process of getting mine ready.

 

Will keep everything crossed for you that you get your money back in the next couple of days and I hope your mum is okay.

Good for you and definitely keep us posted - it's very helpful to read the different stages you have gone through and the dates involved. I'm just about to send my Letter Before Action so still a way to go!

11 Nov 2006 - Received standard acknowledgement letter

24 Nov 2006 - Sent Letter Before Action (with charges)

29 Nov 2006 - Received offer from Barclays

01 Dec 2006 - Sent letter declining their offer

06 Dec 2006 - Received letter from Barclays reiterating that that was their final offer and if I do not wish to accept it, we are therefore unable to reach an amicable resolution!

Claim defended by Barclays

No they're paying everything, including the interest up to the 16th October.

 

I got my settlement letter this morning, standard it seems - I was laughing as I was telling my g/f last night exactly what the letter would say, as I read her the quote from your thread.

 

Spoke to Alex Martin this morning, and asked if I can scratch the confidentiality - he said yes no problem.

 

They've offered me £1930.80, my up to date sheet puts the total at £1942.60 - but I'm not gonna bother about £11.80, they can buy themselves a bargain bucket on me.

 

Glad this is all over at last... :)

Don't want to bring everyone down - but to those asking about my Mum...

She passed away last night under sedation, so it was peaceful.

Feeling both sorrow and relief, she's gone thru a lot in the last 8 years - and I know she's in a better place.

You are in my prayers.

Hi M4n, I am really sorry to hear about ypur mum. my prayers are with you.

 

Well done for beating the bank.

 

I've read on here that some peolple have phoned barclays and got their money back that way, do you think it is worth while doing that, I was thinking of phonig Mr Ruffhead who wrote the defence for barclays. Or should I phone Alex Martin. My case has been moved to the mercantile court, but I have no date yet.

Thanks all for your sympathy...

 

If you've got a court date I don't think it does any harm in ringing them up...when I spoke to Alex he said straight away that they were going to settle, so its not all the crap about - oh we intend to defend etc.

I'm not sure if it makes any difference about the mercantile court, but it doesn't hurt trying does it.

The worst that can happen is that they say no, but they'll soon change their mind as the court date looms.

hi M4n,

I just called alex martin who said that someone called Celyn evans was dealing with my case and he gave me a phone number for him to discuss my case but the number he gave me goes through to someone called franklin par, how strange.

Hi M4n, just thought i'd give u a quick update, i called alex martin again and he informed me he had given me the wrong number, so he gave me the right one, so i called Celyn evans, very polite man asked him if he wanted to settle before it went to mercantile court, he said that is what they are looking to do and that he has check to see if the figures were right and that then he would send me a letter in the next couple of days with an offer, he also told me that my husbands had been transfered to the mercantile court aswell and he would also be reciving a letter soon. We haven't even been informed that his has been tranfered to mercantile court yet. he took my mobile number and said would get back to me as of when.

Hopefully it will be sooner rather than later.
