    • For reference.....   https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/Vict/45-46/43/contents     https://www.blakemorgan.co.uk/bills-of-sale/   Andy
    • A few thoughts.   1. Providing those percentages are accurate that should be fine.   2. We don't use  HMRC software to file Tax Returns (we use professional tax software for our clients) but, from what I gather, there is no need for an actual signature on the form. Just submitting it valid enough.   3. Are you sure the form asks you to mark the box if your income is OVER £6365? I think you may have misread. The entry is usually needed if your income is UNDER £6365 AND you still want to pay Class 2 NIC voluntarily. If your income is greater than £6365 I don't think you need to mark that box.   4. Remember - the filing of the Tax Return itself is handled by one section of HMRC, different from the section that tracks your payments. The Tax Return does NOT want to know about any money you sent to HMRC.  The reference to  "underpayment or underpayment from previous years" refers to PAYE tax codes where you are in employment. In short this box does not refer to you, as a self employed person,  and should be left blank. Your various overpayments from the past and "payments on account" for 2019/20 will be processed by the collection department computers after your Tax Return is submitted. If all goes as it should then everything will come out in the wash. From what you describe I think you still have that £800 credit on your self assessment account. If so HMRC should use that credit to cover the £400 you say is now due leaving £400 credit remaining on your account. Bottom line - submit the Tax Return THEN go into your account a day or two later to check the balance owing to them  or repayable to you.   Good luck.
    • Yea I understand what you mean, but the difficulties with paying etc didn't arise until July, everything was grand up until then. Its just strange that with chartsbridge usually being quite prompt in replying, they've done the same and blanked me when I highlighted the issues with the default notice, and ccp giving them wrong information....    Will submit a sar for sure... 
    • Yes particulars identical hearing date for application 24 /2/2021 - need to submit 7 days before witness st    yes n244 uploaded earlier in the thread 
    • Okay lets summarise as this is getting a tad messy.   Claimant issues two claims:- 2 separate claim numbers   Claim 1 JCF v both of us for our ltd company xx ltd- Claim 2 JCF v just my husband  his ltd company yy ltd Claims are dated xxxxxxx ? Particulars of claim identical ?    Claim 1 is progressing normally and at Disclosure stage......full particularised defence submitted. ....N265 exchanged....Statements yet to be filed and served. Claim 2 was progressing normally but now claimant has made application for Summary judgment.....minimal defence submitted by Solicitor.   Claimant/Court failed to serve copy of application and evidence in support Court informs you they also failed to serve any evidence with court re their application.   Hearing date has been set for application dated xxxxxx ?  Hearing will be remote by telephone but the claimant cant use any evidence as it failed to submit or serve.   Have you scanned / redacted and uploaded their N244  here to your topic ?

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

I am in the process of claiming just over £300 in charges including interest from the Halifax. My overdraft limit was £200, but when we were financially struggling our limit was exceeded by a couple of pounds and the charges just took over and put the account in a right mess

 

My prelim letter was sent to Halifax PLC Customer Relations in Leeds on 14th September 2006 along with the spreadsheets which included all charges and interest details. Today I recieved this reply..

21September2006.jpg

 

Is this a standard reply or not? It looks to me like it is out of date for a start reading the 4th paragraph.

 

Any advice welcome on what to do next. Ta:)

It seems a strange one doesn't it.

 

It is a similar reply to the NatWest one I recieved, only the Natwest one said they would get back in touch within 2 weeks. Which they did with a reduced offer of which I refused of course.

 

Byetheway the account is/was a Halifax Current Account.

I have just recieved the same letter and I thought the same as you at first, I thought it was a different approach for me personally, well for the first couple of minutes!

 

I'm just drafing the LBA now. I sent my Prelim on the 12th Sept and recieved this today. Should I wait the 14 days from the 12th before sending the LBA or take this as a response, send the LBA tomorrow and start another 14 days? I have stressed in the LBA that I'm only claiming from June this year and think it's a very generous sum I'm asking for, as I could back date and include other accounts. Thought it was worth a try ;) .

Prelim sent - received usual sorry letter and leaflet.

It's not just me then being a one off awkward case:D

 

I'm going to prepare and send off my LBA on the 28th as mentioned by lisa1977.

 

Similar to your claim freak. I have statements going back 12 years (what a heap) but just claiming from the last 4 years, and there is the odd statements missing which will probably have charges on them. So I bet there is another four or five charges to add onto the ones I am claiming for. So they are getting let off really in me not claiming the whole lot. I was going to mention in my Prelim letter that I would accept my outstanding overdraft to being settled, but I thought sod it. I want all i'm entitled to with the statements I have available.

 

All I want to do is clear my outstanding overdraft with the Halifax as mentioned in my opening post with a bit left for a pint or two.

 

My claim with the Natwest is at a advanced stage, but the start to this Halifax claim is different to the Natwest's claim in it's early days.

Has anyone else recieved the above response to their Preliminary Letter apart from myself and dainesfreak??

 

Should I send a LBA off to them next week like a few have advised me to do so? It's just strange how they don't mention anything about getting back in touch within 14 days or anything. Or am I trying to compare it too much to Natwests response to the Preliminary Letter :?

 

Could do with some more advice as I don't want to make the wrong moves.

Banks never acknowledge your timescales, they just make up their own as they go along. This is your case, you call the shots NOT them. Once the 14 days of the pelim are up send the LBA giving them a further 14 days. If they do not pay up IN FULL after that then sue them.

Right. 14 days since I sent the preliminary letter (14th September).

 

Mr Liam Pollit sent me a big no no letter back on the 19th september so today is the day I send my LBA off to him.

 

Happy reading Mr Pollitt:smile:

 

I don't expect a positive response from him though, seeing as they did not even say they were going to get back in touch with me within 14 days after I sent my preliminary letter. Just a plain old get lost and not even offer us a penny back. See letter images on this thread

Keep to your guns, it's just tactics to scare people off, and they know some people will give up. If that letter deters 15% of the people who plan to claim money from them from proceeding further, then they will have done well and the 30p letter would have saved them alot of money.

I've been charged another £196 since I started claiming. I believe that I can stick this onto the Moneyclaim when it gets to that stage, is that right? Can I even tell them if and when they make an initial offer or is it best just kept until the court action stages?

If they make an offer, then state you require the additional charges to be included. If not then add any additional charges you receive at the moneyclaim stage.

  • 2 weeks later...

Right then. I sent the LBA off to the address which was on the letter Mr Pollitt sent back to me in response to my preliminary letter on the 28th September. So now only 2 more days until the 14 days are up from when I sent the LBA off to Mr Pollitt himself.

 

I have not recieved anything yet in the post or otherwise, so does anyone think I should dive straight onto the moneyclaim stage or not? Or should I contact the Halifax to see if they have recieved it.

 

Bet your bottom dollar though, that should I ring up Halifax to check if it has been recieved, that they will say they have not recieved my LBA. :mad:

 

Is this usual for the Halifax to ignore a LBA or not. The Natwest were fairly quick to respond to all the letters sent to them.

 

Cheers

I sent you a PM about this to see where you were at, same for me too, heard nothing and it's more or less my Money Claim day tomorrow. I think I might do it on Thursday though as I'm generous to a fault! ;)

Just noticed you sent me a PM. Only because you mentioned it though:oops:. I'll keep checking in future

 

So if you don't hear anything today, it looks like todays your day for Moneyclaim.

 

I've still got in my head that they will say they have not recieved any Letter Before Action and I should have sent it recorded delivery or something. Can they turn round and say these things to get them off the hook?

 

Anyway. Will you be pressing ahead with the next exciting stage of the claim then Daines?

Definitely, all set, even found out when I opened the account!

 

It's all a bit dissapointing so far, I at least expected some silly offers and an abusive phone call. All this quiet is sort of disconcerting, it's like sitting in the trench waiting for the whilsle to blow.

It's time for MCOL today folks.

No reply from the Halifax, and the 14 day deadline was yesterday to respond to the LBA I sent them on the 28th September.

A Question for anyone who knows.

Which Halifax address do I need to put on the Moneyclaim form in the space where it says Defendants Name and Address?

I have checked the Halifax contact details threads, but the addresses on them don't seem to catch my eye to put in the Moneyclaim Form.

Thanks for any advice
