Hi all,

 

I currently have a basic LLoyds account, i never used to have an overdraft or anything with them ( this was paid off with a previous charges win) then i went slightly overdrawn, due to charges i now have an overdraft of £1900 all due to bank charges. LLoyds said i could pay this off at £50.00 per month (£30.00 for interest and £20.00 towards the overdraft) due to being self employed and having little work there has been times when i havent managed to pay it which led to more charged being added (£160 each time) and every time they increased my overdraft to cover it.

 

Due to no work i am missing payments on credit cards and a loan and the overdraft i have with lloyds.

 

Do u think i stand a chance on the hardship case. I was going to wait until the court case against them is finished but im having letters daily from debt collectors and phone calls which is really taking its toll now.

 

All comments appreciated

 

Christina

Do you have priority debt arrears(mortgage/rent, council tax, utilities)?

 

I think you have got credit card charges so that is an easy peasy claim.

Any PPI?

From what you have written, you're struggling but not in financial hardship(which is usually severe financial hardship). I would start the process of reclaiming the charges if you have not done so already.

Yes it does.

If you have the list of charges(for FH you can go back to 27th July 2001) then you need to write to the bank and include an income and expenditure form, plus any arrears notices and you need to explain how you were unable to cover bills from your account. For example, loss of job, hours, maternity leave, separation from partner etc,etc, and how this impacted on your ability to pay your bills.

Hope that helps.

Do you still get charges on the account?

I know you have council tax arrears but are the charges hitting into your budget to pay these bills?

Ok, when did the income go down which meant that you ended up with charges on your account? What lifestyle event ie lowering of benefits, lowering of hours, unemployment? Are the arrears getting worse?

That is our starting point then. Focus on the priority debts and furthermore send them an income and expenditure form plus notices(copies) of arrears on the council tax.

LloydsTSB accept moneyadvicetrust I&E forms

Money Advice Trust - The CFS budget forms and preparing a financial statement

The address to write to is this:

Andover Customer Service Recovery Centre,

Lloyds TSB,

Charlton Road,

Andover,

SP10 1RE.

 

Keep the letter personal to you and make sure you claim all the charges. Explain how it has got worse this year and how in the last 6 months because of the lifestyle event that you have not been able to pay your council tax.

I am going to ask a slightly different quesion. What are you being charged for? What direct debits are being returned unpaid?

There is a reason for me asking this.

If the charges did not go out of your account would you have been able to pay the council tax?
