as posted, the cca itself provides examples of an o/d being subject to the cca. the 'new' rules go further and suggest that an 'agreement' may be required in any event, though is not retrospective.

Thanks for that "clarification" :???::???::???:. I see paragraph 2 is subject to paragraph 3 which clarifies paragraph 2 which is subject to paragraph 3 which clarifies paragraph 2...and so on..... I DO see that. What I DON'T see is what the heck it all MEANS! :!:

 

How ELSE does a Current Account provide CREDIT other than via an OVERDRAFT? Personal and Term Loans tend to be totally seperate accounts. How on earth does that lot comply with the previous Unfair Contract Terms Act or the newer CPUTR 2008?

 

However I must take issue with your final comment....

 

This is surely gobbledegook at its WORST???? :-x - Written to confuse, convolute, connive and conspire to deprive us of our hard earned cash - in fact most words beginning with CON!

CCA applies...when they want it to, and it doesn't when they don't. As I said, if the PTBs were thinking and talking straight, the banksters would have got their backsides whooped...:shock:

 

Justice requires truth and where's there's little or no truth, there can't be justice!

The matrix is intrinsically flawed. Within it is the program for it's own destruction. If you are reading this, you are in the matrix and it's days are numbered...so watch out! :eek:

HI

It’s a bit off topic but.

Overdrafts have always been subject to the Consumer Credit Act as they are running account credit.

They do not have to have a separate agreement however as they are exempted from compliance with part V of the act.

To qualify for this exemption the bank has to give written notice of the interest and terms that will be applied to the overdraft.(section 74)

The European Directive which was implemented in the most part on February the first this year introduced extra requirements regarding notification of interest rates etc to be included in the original agreement, regarding overdraft facilitates

Hi Peter...yes I would for the most part agree with you ..and have observed that...most companies reply with this statement;

 

there is no need for us to provide a copy of your credit agreement under the CCA for Current Accounts and Overdraft Facilities, as Part V of the CCA does not apply to these types of accounts’ The exclusion of Current Accounts falling into Part V of the CCA set out in section 74(1) (b)’

 

 

I for my part have observed that...

Section77/78 is not a matter from which credit agreements are excluded from as this provision falls within Part V1 of CCA 1974.Furthermore this fact is further reinforced within the provisions ITSELF.See SS3 (1)) a) (b) and (5) below.May I also draw your attention to

Section: 9 Meaning of Credit and Section: 16 Exempt Agreements. Furthermore, the Consumer Credit (EU Directive) Regulations 2010/1010 implementing 2008/48/EC and Consumer Credit (Amendment) Regulations 2010/1969 implementing and subsequently amending SI 2010/1010 recognise that such agreements are regulated credit agreements.

 

S: 77/78 Duty to give information to debtor under fixed-sum/running account credit agreement.

.........

(3)Subsection (1) does not apply to

a) an agreement under which no sum is, or will or may become, payable by the debtor, or

b) a request made less than one month after a previous request under that subsection relating to the same agreement was complied with.

(5)This section does not apply to a non-commercial agreement.

Hi

With respect this was not an opinion it is the regulation.

 

The reply you quoted illustrates this in that they of course cannot send a copy of an agrteement that does not exist.

 

Section 77-79 requests cannot be honoured on an overdraft because there is no agreement to copy.

HI

I first researched this in 06 this was a leltter i recieved from the OFT it explains the situation better than me .

 

 

Dear Mr Bardsley

CONSUMER CREDIT ACT 1974 (the Act)

Thank you for your emails of 15 March 2007, concerning overdrafts, and of 22 March 2007, concerning credit card agreements, which have been passed to me to reply. I apologise for the delay in replying.

I should note that unfortunately the Office of Fair Trading (the OFT) cannot comment on or intervene in individual matters. This is because such actions fall beyond the remit of the OFT and because the OFT cannot be aware of all of the relevant information in each instance. Similarly, the OFT cannot comment or express a view on particular practices, save where the OFT has considered a practice in the round and its view is in the public domain. The following points are therefore general in nature.

Overdrafts are normally not subject to those elements of the Act governing form and content of an agreement. This is because the OFT has issued a Determination under Section 74(3) of the Act excluding overdraftlink3.gif agreements from the need to comply. As a result of this there is usually no written agreement that a consumer can request under Section 78 of the Act. However, I should note that any Bank wishing to avail itself of the benefit of the Determination must notify the OFT of its intention to do so and is required to provide information to the prospective debtor. Specifically, the creditor must provide, in writing, at the time the agreement is concluded or before details of the credit limit if any, the annual rate of interest and any charges available, and the process for terminating the agreement. Typically banks make such information readily available via a variety of media on an ongoing basis.

It says that overdrafts are exempt from Part V of the act . Part V of the act is the section that states the requiriments for form and content of the agreement. If the overdraft is exempt from these requirements it means that they do not have to produce a document,if a document does not have to be produced then it is difficult to produce a copy.

Yes all other of the sections of the act apply/

It does make sense that there's no need for a standalone agreement for an overdraft for the purposes of the CCA, as the terms would already be in the current account contract. But of course only the overdraft terms of the contract apply to CCA.

 

I was just reading a recent Santader skeleton argument for a bank charge case which includes a defence to a challenge under the CCA which I'll try and post it up later.

 

Hi

 

Yes although of course the interest and also the repayment details (prescribed terms).etc would not be in the Bank contract, or at least not before the changes that have just been made due to the EU.

 

If it were not for the declaraition it would have embody all these terms on a sepperate agreement or fall foul of the provisions of section18( multiple agreements).

 

Some of us did try to gain advantage by requesting a copy of the letter stating the tems of the overdraft mentioned in the declaration. Unfortunatlely this failed because as you see from the OFT letter earlier in this thread, they decided that it was enough that the bank produced it on easily accessable media, (web page). I still do not agree that this was in the spirit of the declaration but there you go.

YES makes perfect sense...A copy MUST still be sent UNLESS the DETERMINATION has been complied with..The form and substance that would have been required in PART V has now been required in the form as stated in the DETERMINATION.

 

I say that a copy must still be sent unless...because s77/78 are matters 'FOR INFORMATION PURPOSES ONLY'..... NOT FORM AND CONTENT that do not fall witihn PART V but DO FALL WITHIN PART VI..and so still apply

 

However UNLESS contemporary records are not kept it is hard to see how DETERMINATION can be retrospectively satisfied.

here's a couple of brief examples/quotes of what has been said re the 'new' rules (not retrospective) and o/d's.

 

'Unsecured overdrafts. Non-business unsecured overdrafts will be subject to the requirements for both pre-contractual and contractual information although an overdraft can be arranged urgently without prior written information. Where a current account allows the account holder to overdraw without a pre-arranged overdraft, information about the charges must be included in the agreement. (Regulation 19 of the Directive).' mablaw.com

 

 

'Overdrafts now require the same pre-contract and agreement information as other agreements. Although as not all of the Articles are to apply it is to be ‘light touch’......'Since agreements will now have to be drawn up for overdrafts should you receive a request for a copy agreement for an overdraft executed after 12 May 2010 you will need to provide it.' csa-uk.com

Not sure how you would send a copy if the original has not been made.

Not sure why a bank would make an agreement if there was no requirement to do so.

77-79 are requessts for copy of the executed agreement, there is no executed agreement for information purposes or any other purposes.

 

We did this to death many years ago
