THE BIG CLAIM-

Recommended Posts

Guest stephen

Well to day, I have done it. I have issued a claim against every one of the big banks,

 

There will be no out of court settlement, so the end is near for excessive penalty charges.

 

Unless the banks can finally prove that, there charges are fare, but to do that, they have to explain a £3 billion profit.

No I cannot do abbey but once i win against these banks abbey will just have to follow suit or lose hundreds of customers.

 

Yeah only problem with a part 8 claim it not a small track claim so you not protected form costs.

I know that you have the law on your side but surely the risk here is that this is one fight that the banks can't afford to lose and if they chuck their full resources into it, they may have a chance of winning. I'm not doubting your ability but I do have some reservations about the British judcial system.

 

The stakes seem very high on this one. If you win then the banks may have refund everyone. If the case is lost it could affect peoples' ability to claim.

 

Let's hope you win!

I just mad, if I lose this case, I reckon costs will be close to a million

 

So any donations would be great

:lol::lol::lol:

 

 

But when I win the Banks Lose 3 billion a year and could be faced with paying back everyones charges for 6 years

 

so 6 X 3 billion is a total of 18 billion. which is a little more than I would have to pay if i lose

Have you put together some sort of legal team?

 

Maybe, Richard Colbey would be interested, in view of the publicity he/you would gain?

I don;t know much about the law. Is there any danger that all of the individual cases that people are threatening/ bringing could be held up pending the outcome of this one?

Yes dave but i need the help of everyone here

 

If any one has letters from there banks when they asked for there charges back and could spare me a copy, it would be great

 

For example, where your bank refuses to break down there cost, or say their in-line with other banks. I need this, etc

Why is it that you couldn't include Abbey - was it because you have already attempted to get them into court for the same thing?

Also, if you want to start a forum soley for people to post their letters to in which they have had their money returned, banks saying things like "we charge the same as everyone else", etc..., then that is fine with me - I'll ok it with when he gets back.

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.

    • I am new here but very glad to find my way here and would welcome any input.
       
      i purchased a brand new campervan conversion from Hillside Leisure (175 miles from our home) on July 26th for £31,000 and, within 48 hours, during a storm, the alarm began to sound incessantly. We could not get it to stop, even after trying everything listed in the manual. We phoned Hillside on Saturday July 28th around 2.00pm. The young man who answered the phone said he would seek the advice of their technician and call us back, which he did. The technician told us that they, Hillside, couldn’t help, but that we should take the van to Nissan (the van is a Nissan) as the fault would lie with one of their components.
