If you have been successful in your claim with Alliance and Leicester but the thread title doesn't show **WON** or **SETTLED** can you please send a private message to one of the mods to change the title and put it in the successes sub-forum.

 

This will give other users an at-a-glance guide to other cases that have been won and may just give them that extra little bit of confidence needed to pursue A&L themselves.

 

If you can't PM a mod for whatever reason then just reply to this thread.

 

PLEASE ONLY POST HERE IF WON AND NEED TITLE CHANGED


BEFORE starting your claim read through the FAQ's and if there's something you aren't sure of then ask.

Hi

 

I have not started a thread re my claim against A & L. It was a small claim and I knew all the procedures from my claim against Nat West.

 

Anyway I won £188 (£150 + interest/MCOL costs) and thought you might like to know. I have added successful claim to the survey.

Hello, after a month away, found telephone and computer disabled - it's taken 8 days 'til this evening for all to be restored.

Would Caro or someone kindly move this to correct place,please. I want to tell the world I have won: A&L cheque(hopefully unbounced, I'll soon know)for £2389.44 received(as Battleaxe, dear lady, heard me screech down my mobile) against claim of £2362.16, on 24 January.

Asked at Court if I should return the £17.28 overpayment and was looked at strangely by Clerk.

'No', said she.

!!!WON!!!

It is so wonderful. I am trying to find my way to making donation, but just get 'You do not have enough privileges'etc note when trying to access other areas.

My apologies for any inconvenience I am causing by posting here.

BUT, MOST OF ALL, THANKYOU TO EVERYONE WHO HAS CONTRIBUTED TO THIS OUTSTANDING SITE WITH HARD FACTS, MORAL SUPPORT AND EVERY POSSIBLE ENCOURAGEMENT.

MERCI MILLEFOIS!

Alliance & Leicester

 

£155

 

Recieved the cheque today, two weeks after issuing my claim with MCOL.

 

The standard "no liability" letter, plus the "future operation" bit. I have written an acknowledgement, quoting the recent FSO ruling and pre-announcing my intention to report to the FSO if (when) my account is closed.

Hi guys, just in the process of filing the small claims court N1 form but just wanted to ask a few things if anyone can help. On the bottom of the form it has a space for solicitors fees, and i wasnt sure what to put in there as i was hoping there wouldnt be any! Also the interest charges that you claim back does that include the standard monthly charge that they issue for being in you overdraft? :confused: Any helo would be much appreciated, cheers.

I got £1600 back from alliance and Leicester in under two months without even filing for court - in the end it just took a strongly worded letter to make them cave!

Hi all,

 

Following earlier success with Lloyds have just received the full amount from A&L but only after we filed in court. They said the usual 'no admission of liability', 'no sign of weakness', 'charges are fair' etc etc but coughed up anyway!

Subsequently, however, they have now followed up with another letter saying the account is to be closed because we 'clearly do not accept certain aspects of their terms and conditions' and threatening default status being registered with a credit refererence bureau if we can't immediately repay any outstanding balance and have to make repayment proposals! Talk about bad losers or what!

I am not one to lie down easily and now intend to take the petulant b*stards to the Financial Services Ombudsman because this is nothing short of retaliation and a thinly veiled threat for them being found out! Can anyone point me in the right direction?

 

Regards,

 

Andy

 

Keep up the fight, remember it's your money!

Hi

 

I won my claim against the A & L. They submitted my cheque 2 days pior to the court cut off date. Yes, I used Money Claims on Line and wrestled with the site and the address of the defendants but eventually it was all worthwhile both financially and just to have a moral victory against a large institution

Hi Fantastic news that you won against A&L. I have just received a letter from them today, stating that their charges are fair and therefore, they wont refund me the £2036.50 charges. Could you help me. What letter should I send to them on reply? Or do I just start the court proceedings?

Hi SamI wrote to them again stating that I would be taking court proceedings, left it for 5 days and then lodged a claim using the On line Claims facility; they responded to the court they would be fighting the claim and rescinded at the last minute and sent me a cheque.I hope this helps and Good Luck

Hi Thank you for responding. Could you tell me which letter you sent to them before starting court action?

 

Thank you

Hi SamI did not use a template - from memory, all I said was something to the effect that "I consider I have been fair and reasonable in trying to settle this matter amicably. I now intend to invoke legal proceedings to reclaim these illegal charges"I hope this helps

Hi Sam, I had the letter you received aswell (I think it's one of their standard issues) I sent them a LETTER before action expressing my disappointment that they had failed to respond positively. I stated that if monies are not refunded within fourteen days then I will initiate court proceedings for the full amount plus interest, plus cost without furhter notice. They test the water and hope that you will give in and go away, however don't!!!! Stick with it and see it through. You will have to apply to the court as they will send you a similar letter after they receive the letter before action. they will even state to the the court that they intend to defend their case, however this is all scare tactic's hoping that you won't see it through. They will pay out and you will not have to go to court. keep at them and don't give up, thats what they want!!!! Good Luck, Louisa
