hi all


just looking for a bit of advice re the title


i used to have a current account with the hsbc,i then started an unfair charges claim against them and cleared my overdraft completely except for the £750 that was the amount of my claim


this ended up on my credit file as a default even though i cleared it on receipt of the first letter from a dca


obviously i think i made some mistakes in my handling off this but i basically want to know if i have any chance of getting it removed and if so how i go about it?


many thanks for any info

you dared challenge the banks over bank charges? well, this is their most effective response to that...they do their nest to default you, to teach you a lesson n'all!


same happened to me, am in court on Tuesday.


what you need to do next is this:


  • get copies of all correspondence AND the default notice or even default warning letter (letter of intention to file a default)
  • you can do this by issuing a Subject Access Request...see info here and do your research
  • there will be a number of options open to you, but it depends on what paperwork you have, or what will be sent to you by them
  • If they defaulted you when the account was in dispute, or the default amount was comprised partly or wholly of bank charges, you have a case
  • If the default letter or notice didnt give you sufficient time to respond, you have a case.
  • read all you can on this site, try to settle it amicably, and when that doesnt work (which it wont!), start legal proceedings

when I have more time I can provide better guidance, but follow the link above, cos that's where i learnt everything anyway (thanks CAR!)
