    • ok thank you.   please don't take the questions i am asking as a bit naff and p'haps could be viewed as pointless , but i am simply gathering what information might be needed when obviously more the knowledgeable members appear in the morning. more of an info gathering stage at present.   you indicate mediation, so my last question is how far 'in' are you regarding the court claim she has made, at what stage and have you appointed a solicitor yet as you indicate a worry about costs...i hope not as there might not be a need too,   you would gander your costs against the claimant, but is this a small claims county court claim? , in the family section or whatever its called?
    • Yes I am the executor and the estate has been settled.     She has made a statement with a solicitor and wants mediation.   But there is no basis for a claim as we have evidence that she wasn’t cohabiting, was living with another man as his ‘carer’ and was not dependent yet her solicitor still supports her claim against 1975 act.     Seems unfair, will we be allowed to claim our costs back for example?    we feel we are being dragged through litigation without any basis for it. 
    • sorry for your loss..it can be a difficult time this might be a wee bit outside of advice that can be effectively given on a forum.   what type of legal claim has been raised please? where in the probate etc process are things currently or has the estate of your late father already been settled ? i was guess you are an executor of the estate too? 
    • A girlfriend, she claims to be a dependent and to have been living with him. Both false claims. She has large properties in Thailand and london which she put in her sons name after my fathers death.      
    • hi you'll have to slightly expand on what is behind your query..   who's estate? who is this person in relation to the person who owns the estate and why do they think they have a claim?   dx

    • 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!

Hi all

 

Just been browsing and found I have been some use to someone!! Best of luck to all. I have alot more research in my back pocket including studies from the US and Australia whuch have attempted to show how much it actually costs to bounce a dd etc.

 

Pls PM me if you would like more help. Also, on 7th Sept the OFT put out another statement about bank charges. Worth reading. It will have weight in court.

 

An update on my battle. On 6th Sept the court adjurned the case cos the defence said they didnt know about the court date. (bull****) The court issued a directive that lloyds MUST provide me with the information that have witheld for 4 months AND a complete analysis of how they justify their charges (!!!) by 4pm tomorrow. If they dont, all their evidence is inadmissable in court in Nov and they will be in breach of a court ruling.

 

I wait with baited breathe.......... I have BBC radio lined up and will make more noise than a cymbol convention about it! "Lloyds Above the Law?" Also thought I would report their Solicitors to Law Society.

 

Cant wait. Best of luck to everyone.

I would love to know too :) I personally cannot believe that barclays would do this to their customers. They know we are right...Why ruin their relationship with us? I've been banking with them for 7 years now personal and business account and loan. I will be closing all soon.

 

Let us know Mervalous. Someway or another ;) ps.Court date for 29th Nov....ages yet :(

Barclays - Success. Total £3000.

Barclaycard - Success. £2500

Barclays Brother - Success £500ish

Vodafone - Default removal + claim for distress. Settled default removed = £1000 in compensation + £120 court costs paid. :D

I've decided to put on my detective's hat to try and work this out. Unfortunately I am unable to uncover any concrete evidence, everything I have is purely circumstantial.

 

Circumstantial evidence

 

Last week, Mervalous sounds slightly anxious about fast approaching court date, is posting daily, sometimes several times in a day.

 

Suddenly goes very quiet, court date comes and goes and nothing is heard.

 

Conclusions

 

Of course, poor old Mervalous may well have a IT problem and has lost their internet connection so is therefore unable to update us.

 

Or more likely, has had a result but unfortunately been gagged.

 

Shame for those of us following on behind as it is always a big boost to hear of someone else's victory, but great for Mervalous who is probably enjoying their success as we speak.

sorry guys Im back!!

 

They settled but I didnt want to post untill the money was in my account, I put a line through the gag order :)

 

Anyway all paid up in full, just gutted I messed up on the interest when i was sorting it all out.

 

Anyway about to donate £50 when i can find the link :)

 

EDIT:

Made the donation, made sure it came out of my barclays account so shows up CONSUMERACT on my statement, they wont ever see but it made me feel good lol
