I have found that its farquicker to request statements for the period that you want to claim, You have to sort through the statements yourself but its far quicker than waiting for the bank to drag their heels especially if they think you are trying to make a claim against them. I requested statements that covered the whole period of when the account had been opened, these arrived withing 6 days and now I am in a position to start the proceedings to claim back the charges.

Do you honestly think that are going to defend themselves in court?

 

Are you protected from costs?......

 

1. It's really hard to judge them, but looking at their document exchange, where they didn't reference anything and indeed only really sent me 2 photocopies of leaflets from their display racks, I would have to guess no.

 

On the other hand, their incompetence so far might suggest that they really do believe they have a case. I am most looking forward to hearing them explain to a Judge why they lied to the court about me offering to extend the deadline for entering their defence, so for that alone I pray they do.......

 

2. Yes - the track has been given as small claims so, unless the Judge believes that I had absolutely no basis for ever starting my action, there would be no reason why I should ever pay any costs - and if my case really was that bad I'm quite sure we'd have been called to a prelim hearing some time ago.

I thought I'd give their legal team something to read, since the Halifax don't seem unable to supply anything.

 

The Claimant will also make reference to the following case laws;

1. Murray v Leisureplay [2005] EWCA Civ 963

2. Wilson v Love [1898]

3. Lordsvale Finance PLC v Bank of Zambia (1996) QB 752

4. Bridge v Campbell Discount Co. Ltd. (1962)

 

 

A grand total of 318 pages weighing in at just under 2kg

 

 

ROTFL.......

 

thats a neat trick, bang in as much case law as you can find so their legal team have to do their homework and hence massively increase the cost to the banks in their fees LOL

 

perhaps you should also ask for another £2500+ for costs with all that paper,ink, and valuble time you have had to make for your case , god knows how much Halifax will be charged by their own legal team, you should be able to also claim that fair and reasonable rate too 8)

:o OMG.. I can't believe that your case is still ongoing!

 

I'd love to be a fly on the wall when you finally get them pinned down in a court :-D .

 

I can't believe how voraciously they've defended the Default notice, They clearly mean a lot and you get the feeling we must be missing something that matters a great deal to them when they are happy to pay out these sums of money but not complete an admin task to end a court case!

 

Good Luck and I can't wait to read the next updates!:p

 

well i dont know about being a fly, but its an open court so anyone can sit in there i assume?, how large is this court and would they restrict the public interested in this case getting in.

 

remember aardvark, the courts are open to the public, remember the school trip to the court house to see how our justice system works?, then going back to school and having to writeup the essay 8P

 

perhaps jonni2bad could sell jonni2bad teeshirts 8)

 

it does seem that there might be an interest from the papers that a massive bank submits almost nothing

in their bundle, were as an ordinary (not really hes a star) person can offer up such an impressive bundle

to fight his corner, there must be some interest there for the media.

 

yes , it would seem the default is a very large thing indeed, can anyone shed some light here please, what is it about this that seems to scare them?, and how would every single person reading, use this new information to our advantage, i assume its something as regards damages but cant work out what or how it might esculate?.

It will be at the Mansfield County Courts (North part of Nottinghamshire) and is of course open to the public. I would imagine that if there are no 'visitors' then it would actually be heard in the Judge's chambers.

I don't think they'd be very interested if I lost and I don't count chickens bla bla bla so the media can wait until there's an outcome....

Damages. If you can show that you have been unfairly defaulted, then it stands to reason that your credit worthiness would have been impacted and, each time your files are searched, creditors would obviously assume that you were a bad risk. This, in effect, is a slur on your good name or, more to the point, a Defamation of Character.

 

BIG BIG issue. So big, in fact, that it would put our money claims in the shade by a considerable margin.

wow that was quite a erad from start to finish.

I will be watching this to see how this ends (quite comically if what we've seen so far is anything to go by), and I wish you all the best with this.

If I lived any closer I would totally come up for this and buy you a beer once you'd finished tearing them up into tiny pieces in court.

Hi Jonni

 

Can I ask where you got a copy of the supply of goods and services act, I can't find it on the net? The only thing I can find if the 1994 version, I assume that won't do?

 

Also the case law references you mention - is there somewhere I can get my grubby little paws on those too?

 

I need to get my case together for upcoming court date, and I'm having trouble finding what I need (your list of evidence has been really helpful!)

 

Thanks

Thanks for the links jonni, they could come in really usefull for any cases that end up going to court. They will really help those of us who are up to speed on the arguments and reasons but need to do a bit more reading before actually landing in a courtroom!

 

Cheers.

Wilson v Love [1898]

 

I thought Wilson v Love was 1896 ? :?:

 

And Murray v Leisureplay was 2004, the appeal was 2005. Although the appeal reverted the 2004 decision, it did confirm the penalty charges principles.

Just to point out for other viewers - There was a typo earlier in my thread, and the above are the correct dates.

 

Many thanks

Great read....biting my nails!!!!!!

Halifax removed their default notice £4500 on my account immediatly I sent the Statutory and Formal notice. They had sold the debt to Hillco. Hillco refuse to remove their default £2300 of the same debt. Both defaults were listed in my report for four years, so it looked like I had two defaults to two companie at different values. I am still arguing with Hillco to remove the default. But this thread seems to suggest I might have a further claim for dames. I dont know but what do you suggest?

If I had known I could claim for dames I might even have gone for 2....

 

OK, so I presume it's damages, yeah?

 

In which case, yes (but with conditions).

 

It would certainly be easier to include damages with a claim for the removal, which ideally goes with the claim for a refund - i.e. all 3 in one. This is not an absolute requirement though, of course.

 

Damages would have to be either (a) substantiated if they are for actual losses or (b) for something along the lines of defamation of character.

 

(a) must be water-tight. It needs to show that the result of the default caused event 'x' which resulted in an increased cost for product 'y' which subsequently has cost you £xxxx over the period since. That type of thing...

 

It needs to be very clear that the Judge can see the path and no ambiguity in the route. Typically speaking (but not a fixed rule) is that if you had other defaults at the time, you would be hard pressed to show it was only their fault.

 

(b) would be great if the 'no other default rule' also applied - a claim of this sort, if decided in the courts with a jury of your fellow citizens could well produce a very, very large payment.

 

There's the basics for you..........

My two cents worth :D

 

I don't know if you have seen my thread relating to a default Vodafone placed on my credit file 3 years ago. I threatened to take them to court for distress claims and financial compensation and won. They offered £1000 in compensation + court costs + removal of the default. Result. :D

 

I would add though that my claim could have been done a lot better if I had planned it more. You may learn a little from reading my thread. HERE

 

Cheers

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 would like to congratulate you on a very interesting case.... you certainly seem to know what you are talking about and well done on getting the default removed. Do you have more cases to get your teeth into or are you calling it a day now????

I am at the court stage with Barclays and until I read your thread I was almost on the verge of giving up. I don't profess to know anything about courts or case law but I will read your court bundle documents which you kindly provide links to in your thread with great interest and trepidation and hopefully it will all become clear to me as to which to include in my case and which to not...

....well done on getting the default removed....

 

I hope you have a crystal ball. My court case is November, it's not removed yet!

 

I have had all of the money returned though.

 

....I don't profess to know anything about courts or case law....

 

I don't either! In fact, 6 months ago I knew nothing about the laws involved in bank charge reclaims. Anything I do know is purely from being here - I'm a big fan of CAG, can you tell? :-)
