It's a good start, and you've got to start somewhere! ;)

 

While you are waiting for the statements, take some time to read up on the next steps and the ones that follow after that. Have a good read of some of the threads in this forum to see how others have fared. Good luck.

Well sent of SAR letter to the Halifax they failed to send statements within 40 days called the Halifax to say have not received 2 days later 19 envelopes of statements arrive in the post so I set about adding up charges they total £1771.00 so have filled in the spreadsheet and sent the preliminary approach letter recorded del mon 2/10/06. Tuesday 2 massive letters arrive in the post more statements!!!! So the Halifax now have 2 weeks to reply or I am going to really lose my rag!!!!!!!!

We didn't realise charges would add up to so much just shows how much money they have taken from us in the last 6 years.

Hope to hear from the Halifax soon christmas is on it's way!!!!!!

Hi there, I am now about 5 weeks ahead of you and filed earlier in the week. Don't be surprised if they don't respond in the two weeks at all, and certainly don't expect them to pay up without a court case being filed.

They do sometimes (with no obvious pattenr) but it's very much the exception rather than the rule!!

 

Good luck and fingers crossed for you that it arrives in time for christmas!

My boyfriend got a call from the Halifax lasts friday so he told them to contact me because I am dealing with his charges anyhow 2 minutes after they call him I get a phonecall offering us £156.00 out of the £1771.00 of charges so I refused and the lady said the most I can offer you is £478.00 so that offer went up within seconds I told her that he would not accept offer and the 14 days have expired so I am now sending them the Letter Before Action and have also sent the partial offer letter accepting there offer as part settlement they now have until the 29th October before we File court papers.

Cant believe the offer they made told the lady we would be going to court she said well that is dealt with by another dept so I guess we will never here from her again.

Need this money asap christmas is coming!!!!!

Well if Halifax continue to stick to the process that they seem to be using I think you will certainly see your money by christmas, however please be aware that timelines and outcomes are never guaranteed to be the same for everyone!

Stick to your side of the timeline, read lots between now and issuing your small claim and you will be able to proceed without missing valuable days in research!

You are doing fine by the way!

Right I am just filling out the Money Claim Form on line the total of claim is £1771.00 plus the interest is £351.69 how do I work out the daily rate I have tried to work it out using the money claim template put doesn't make sense.We are not claiming and overdraft interest as account doesn't have that facility.

Also when it says total claimed do I include the interest charges or just the £1771.00. I am getting really scared now also do I send new schedule of charges up to todays date or do I just leave it, have seen from other threads people have not had to and been settled just need reasuring!!!!!!really really scared now!!!!!!

Hiya

 

I filed my MCOL on Friday, so am a few days ahead of you. It won't be long now!!!

 

To work out the daily rate, you take your total charges (excluding the 8% interest) and multiply it by 0.00022. This will give you your daily rate.

 

When it says total claimed, enter the total of your charges, PLUS your 8% interest.

 

Once it is filed I think you have to send the Halifax another statement of charges, but I need clarification of this myself!!

 

You will be fine and please don't worry. I had major panics last week, but you are almost there!! Any other probs, just post.

Looking at the posts in the 'sucessful claims' bit, it usually takes about 1-2 weeks, but I suppose it is different for everyone and depends on how busy the Halifax are!! (very I suspect!! shame!!) I am sure you will get it in plenty of time for your Xmas shopping!! You will be able to do a trolley dash!!

Dear Sir/Madam,

Further to my recent correspondence to your department dated **/**/** and **/**/**, in which I requested the repayment of unlawful charges which have been levied to my account, your lack of positive action to resolve this matter has regretfully left me with no alternative but to seek redress at the County Court.

I wish to inform you that I have today (**/**/**) issued a claim for the repayment of the unlawfully taken charges, plus statutory interest, plus costs. The claim will be served to you in due course.

Please find enclosed a schedule of the charges I am claiming, along with the interest accrued to date. A copy of this has also been sent to the court. Please note this schedule does not include court costs.

Yours Faithfully,

(YOU)

Hi there, at a smilar stage to you, court claim was deemed served on 7th November and acknowledged on 9th November with me. What happened next is I got a letter from the court, saying that Halifax intend to defend their claim. They have 28 days from when it was served (7th) to file their defence, so thats what you are waiting for as well now,to see the Halifax defence!

What seems to happen in most cases is that they receive a letter within the 28 days from the Halifax stating that it would not be financially viable for them to continue and offer you full payment. This is what you and I should be hoping for. In the meantime, I have been reading up on the court questionnaire that I may have to fill in if it goes further, so maybe do some preparation in case it goes to court. But it seems that in nearly all cases I have read, the Halifax WILL pay before the 28 days are up.After all, if they actually went to court, they would have to prove that £39 for a bounce DD is a lawful and just amount, which they just can't do:D

 

Not long to wait now,
