CC Claim against RBoS

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Just about to start a claim against RBoS.

 

It's for approx £2000, but that's without the 8% interest allowed by courts.

 

Not claimed like this for a while and I'm not sure how much the 8% is going to amount to. For example, say I had charges of £100 in 2003, how much interest would that be up to now?

 

Has anyone recent experience of calculating the 8% accurately, and can tell me in plain language what to do?

 

Cheers

 

BAE :)

there is a spreadsheet somewhere which would allow you to do this. It should be in our library.

 

In plain language, you will have to do calculate the 8% on each charge from the date it was made up until the present day.

 

The best thing to do is to get our spreadsheet and as long as you can put in the charges and the dates they were incurred, then it should calculate all the interest correctly for you.

 

However it can become more complicated than that because if the charges have put you into overdraft, then the bank will also have charged you interest on those charges. You should claim this fact too. That interest also will be subject to 8% statutory interest as well when you take the matter to court

Thanks, Bankfodder.

 

I will calculate the interest and put my claim into court in a few days, when my wages come in, (prelim letter and LBA have long since been ignored by RBoS).

 

Hope the process doesn't take long - my last cc claims were in 2006 and were swiftly refunded once they reached the court stage. Has anyone any experience of how long recent claims are taking, before the RBoS pay up? (If they are being successful, that is, for the 'successes forums' seem to be quiet at the mo').

If this is a bank charges claim then it will more than likely be stayed by the court until the conclusion of the OFT test case. Apologies for not answering earlier but read CC and assumed it was a Credit Card claim.

Back again . . .

 

Finally got round to putting my claim in at my local court. It's for a few grand and includes contractual interest and statutory interest.

 

It's been over two years since my last claim so I'm wondering if RBS are treating claims any differently, i.e. the first time I claimed, they acknowledged the claim and stated they would be defending all of it. Two weeks later they settled! So no court hearing. I'm kinda hoping they will do the same again!!

 

Cobbetts have just acknowledged the claim and , once again, state that they will be defending it. Has anyone recent experience of Cobbett's / RBS's tactics?

The case should be stayed pending the OFT test case conclusion.

Hi, Yourbank,

 

This is a credit card claim so I don't think they have grounds for staying the claim, do they?

Did they not refund on the first two letters?

Unusual(although 3 usually does the trick ;) )

They gave me a small, partial refund about a year ago. Since then, obviously, the interest on the rest of the charges has spiralled, so they will end up paying more than they would have, stupid really!

Looks like RBoS are going to defend this one. . .

 

In their defence, received last week, they are saying that their 'charges' are not 'charges', but,

 

'payment for services provided by the defendant'.:eek:

 

So how can charging £20 for an overlimit fee or late payment be a service?!

 

What are they 'providing' me with for this 'service' ?

 

Anyone any suggestions how to counter such an absurd idea???

RBS have offered a partial refund.

 

I don't want to accept such a low offer but I am prepared to accept a fair settlement.

 

Has anyone any experience of RBS's stance on a bit of negotiation?

 

Are they likely to say, 'That's your offer, take it or leave it' or do they actually negotiate?

 

BAE :)

    • 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.

    • I am new here but very glad to find my way here and would welcome any input.
       
      i purchased a brand new campervan conversion from Hillside Leisure (175 miles from our home) on July 26th for £31,000 and, within 48 hours, during a storm, the alarm began to sound incessantly. We could not get it to stop, even after trying everything listed in the manual. We phoned Hillside on Saturday July 28th around 2.00pm. The young man who answered the phone said he would seek the advice of their technician and call us back, which he did. The technician told us that they, Hillside, couldn’t help, but that we should take the van to Nissan (the van is a Nissan) as the fault would lie with one of their components.
