    • EU deal replicated 'as far as possible' ... aka less than   "The British Government is continuing to work intensively on securing continuity with other countries. We have secured agreements – either signed or agreed in principle - that account for 64% of the UK’s trade with all the countries with which the UK is seeking continuity, should we leave the EU without a deal."   With what I've seen on that page I linked earlier, that would seem to be decidedly unambitious 'trade deals across the world larger than the EU
    • dx100uk - thank you for your advice.  I will send a SAR to Vanquis and really appreciate all the help on here.   I may have read your last sentence in the way that it was not intended but it has came across very judgmental and not helpful.  I have came on this site for some help, not to be judged.  If that was not your intention then I apologise as I realise text can be read in the way it was not intended.  
    • . I'm sorry but this is not correct. There is a very long established rule that you are required to exercise utmost good faith (uberrima fides) when becoming a party to any kind of insurance contract. This means that you have quite a strict duty to accept responsibility for disclosing any information which a reasonable person in your position might understand could materially affect the risk. I can imagine that the interpretation of this rule would not be applied quite so strictly to a very new and young driver – but the more that one has been driving and the more insurance policies one has held, then I think that the stricter  this rule becomes. It is also well established that one can misrepresent something simply by withholding information – by silence. I'm sorry to say that I think that this rule and the value of it is so self-evident that it is scarcely worth discussing. I wouldn't start raising this issue if I were you with insurers or the courts because you will come away with a bloody nose and loss of credibility
    • @unclebulgaria67 your point is particularly valid especially in regards to loss in the event of a claim. Irrespective of 2x SP30’s or not the vehicle is insured for its full market value. The insurers rating changes based on risk against those endorsements, where said risk calculation isn’t made available.    Also I question the validation of 22% in premium. Is that based on today’s risk profiling, or is that applied retrospectively to day 1 and can that be evidenced.    One thing that is very clear, is that to bring about any degree of misrepresentation the insurer has to have evidence that questions were asked in regards to the endorsements.   This was an auto renewal and when I’ve checked the Brokers electronic Copy on “My Policy’ at renewal, there is no section included relative to accidents in the last 5 yrs or Motoring convictions. Everything else relative to me and the named driver is listed.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

All,

 

I sent through a SARN to Barclays and they sent me back a summary report that covers fees and refunds from '03-09 not the full statements, has anyone else had this and has it been truthful?

 

I've had an account with them since 97 though. Is there anyway I can request the same charges from 97-03?

 

I have a lot of my old statements from between 97 and 03 as well, if Icant request the statements from them can I send them through to Barclays requesting the charges to be paid back as well?

 

Thanks

Hi C2K,

 

The summary report sheets may not be adequate if they don't give a specific date for each charge.

 

You should write back to B's confirming that their reply is not adequate and you require either copy statements or a list which gives a date for each charge.

 

Confirm you also require statements going back to '97 which you know they hold and to which you're entitled.

 

Give them a further 14 days to comply or you'll report to the Info Commissioner's Office and/or seek enforcement through court.

 

Also, see items 18 and 19 here - The Consumer Forums - Bank charges templates (consumer)

Hi Slick,

 

Thanks, I gave them a quick call to see what the issue was, and they said I could go into any branch and request all statements, which I did today.

 

I went into the branch today and told them I had sent through a SARN with which Barclays were non compliant, the branch then proceeded to put in a request for all my statements as I told them I had paid £10 already and they were non compliant they agreed to send all statements at no charge to me within two weeks.

Hi C2K,

 

If you are happy to wait another 2 weeks, that's fine. However, be warned that you may receive nothing and will then have to write to complain.

 

I would send in a letter to put your complaint, about their failure to comply with the SAR, on a formal footing.

ok barclays havent sent through my statements, ive sent through an LBA gave them 14 days on top of the 40, have been into a branch twice now, so think i need to file a claim with the courts to get my statements,

 

does anyone have a Poc that I can use??

 

ive found this one

 

PARTICULARS OF CLAIM

 

 

1. The Defendant is a Data Controller within the meaning of the Data Protection Act and is responsible for the processing of data of which the Claimant is a Subject.

 

2. The Claimant has account(s) numbers ******** with the Defendant which was opened on or around 1998.

 

3. On 30th May 2009 the Claimant sent a Subject Access Request, pursuant to Section 7 of the Data Protection Act 1998 to the Defendant.

 

4. The Defendant has failed to comply.

 

5. By virtue of the Defendant's failure to comply with the Subject Access Request the Claimant has suffered damage

 

6. The damage caused is:

 

Extra costs incurred in addition to court costs, due to the Defendants failure to comply - this includes the cost of additional correspondence, numerous phone calls and time spent preparing documents and seeking legal advice, I estimate this cost to be £75

 

7. The Claimant seeks an order that the Defendant do comply with the Claimant's Subject Access Request

 

8. Under the terms of Section 15(2) of the Data Protection Act 1998, where the Defendant contests that information requested under the Claimant's Subject Access Request is not included within the scope of Section 7 of the Data Protection Act 1998, the Claimant requests that the Court inspects that information, and where it finds that the Defendant's opinion is unfounded, that it orders such information be included within the information supplied to the Claimant under the Subject Access Request.

 

9. Damages and costs within the discretion of the Court.

 

 

 

I believe that the contents of these particulars of claim are true

 

 

Signed:

 

 

Date:

 

is this ok???

 

And do I use the same N1 form to lodge the complaint?

There's a guide to this in the Bank Templates Library - The Consumer Forums - Bank charges templates (consumer)

 

Items 18,19 and 20 refer. You must adapt the template to reflect your own case's needs.

Hi Crippla,

 

The letters are their standard response and should not deter you from your present course of action.

 

While you await the statements for earlier years (through court action for non-compliance), you should work on putting together your Schedule of Charges for the charges data that you DO have.

 

You could file a court claim now for the last 6 years and then, if/when you get the earlier data, you can file an Application to amend your claim using form N244.

ok guys i have had a small success, i have managed to get hold of my statements from when my account was opened (dec 98 - date),

 

Could do with some advice though, i sent off a LBA last Friday (giving them two weeks to pay up on the last 6 years) so the question is

 

do I start the process again (reuest for repayment etc)?

 

or do i send a letter now as an ammendment to the last one and give them till the 25th (as previously to respond)?

 

or do i just send a new LBA with a new schedule and give them 14 days??

 

Now that theyve given me all my info I have to cancel my court claim, just wondering if anyone knows how I do this??

 

thx!!!

Hi Crippla,

 

This will be of great interest to anyone seeking older statements and well done for pressing on with this.

 

Send a new LBA including all the penalty charges and give them 14 days.

 

Write to Barclays and say you are now prepared to discontinue the non-compliance court action if they agree to pay your court fees and any damages you sought. Otherwise, you'll leave the case running to d/w these aspects.

ok thanks slick ill do that, now lets see if i can get the statements of barclaycard!!!

Share this post

for everyone's benefit, I sent off the SARN for the most recent 6 years, and didnt receive anything I had to start court proceedings for this set of statements (I used the POC template from this website)

 

For the previous years (98-03), I was told I could request them from any branch, so I went into my local branch and badgered them, telling them that I had paid (via the £10 PO) and that I had started legal proceedings against barclays (it has now been in excess of 3 months since I started the process, they kept telling me 2 weeks and I had to go back in every 2 weeks till I received them)

 

I finally received them this morning. It is unlikely that they will send you the old statements via the SARN request. I would recommend going into the branch and requesting them but be persistent (there is a £5 charge but as they didnt send me the statements on time or correctly they refunded it for me, at my request)

 

If you go into a branch and ask them to phone the people dealing with the request (when it doesn't happen the first or second or third time) they will tell you they can't, this is a lie, the lady phoned the person responsible (she did this in front of me yday) and he sent them out the same day. And I received them today

 

The guys name is James Haw. Hope this of use to others in the same boat.

 

Looking at my statements Barclays used to chrage £5 for unpaids up until 2001 and then ramped it up to £30/£35, the scumbags!!!

sorry guys one last question, i saw somewhere here about a limitations act for charges over 6 years, is there a template that I can add to the LBA with this included??

Share this post

Share on other sites

You'll rely on s.32 of the Limitation Act 1980 - Limitation Act 1980 (-), swarb.co.uk

 

However, you don't need to go into detail about this in your LBA. You can d/w this when you do your POC to go in with your N1 Claim form.

 

Add a paragraph to say:-

 

I am fully aware of the Limitations Act 1980 with regard to reclaiming charges older than 6 years and will rely on s.32 of this Act to address this issue.

Hi Crippla,

 

Since the OFT decided not to appeal the last Supreme Court ruling, the bank charges reclaims process is no longer staightforward.

ok so i've written back to them using this template from MSE

 

i'll let everyone know how it goes

 

"Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing in response to your letter dated 22nd December 2009in which you have advised my complaint about unfair bank charges is to be closed and have given me eight weeks to respond.

I feel that in issuing these charges you have broken the FSA’s regulatory principle to ‘pay due regard to the interests of its customers and treat them fairly’ and I am writing to request that you do not close my complaint but instead take the following new grounds into consideration:

The charges are unfair under s.140A(1) of the Consumer Credit Act 1974 and contrary to the requirement of good faith, having caused a significant imbalance in our relationship and a detriment to myself, and under regulation 5(1) of the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999, in the following respects (save for, in the case of the later, those matters which relate to the level of the charge as against the service supplied in exchange):

(1) The charges were excessive and punitive in comparison with the costs to the bank caused by my conduct which triggered the charges.

(2) The charges were set by reference to the overall cost to the bank of providing current accounts to all of its customers which held such an account, rather than merely to the cost of my conduct thereby effectively requiring me to subsidise the provision of current accounts by the bank to other customers.

(3) In the premises the bank did not deal fairly as between myself and its other customers.

(4) The existence and quantum of the charges were inadequately and/or insufficiently explained and/or drawn to my attention either; when my account was first opened; when I gave an instruction which would result in the levying of a charge; or otherwise before any particular charge was applied.

(5) The circumstances and manner in which the charges were levied created potential for the application of multiple charges and the levying of charges to give rise to the application of further charges.

(6) The complexity of the charges and/or the circumstances in which they were levied.

(7) The nature of the charges and/or the circumstances of their application was such as to cause me inherent difficulties in predicting the incidence and amount of such charges in advance.

(8) The absence of any effective competition between providers of current accounts which restricted my ability to chose a current account operated on terms which did not provide for charges such as (and/or equivalent to) those levied by your bank.

(9) The charges were (or had the potential to be) excessive in comparison with the level of borrowing which triggered the levying of the said charges.

In particular, and without prejudice, the burden of proof for the above rests onBarclays to prove that the circumstances of our relationship are fair (pursuant to s.140B(9) of the Consumer Credit Act 1974), so unless you can provide evidence to the contrary I expect a refund of the full amount requested by return.

I now ask that you repay the amount I have previously requested of £xxxxxxx. I enclose a schedule of charges for you as well.

I look forward to a full response to this letter within 14 days and if I do not receive a satisfactory response I intend to pursue my complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service or small claims court at the earliest opportunity.

Yours faithfully,
