Getting excited now!

Hi

 

Sent my first letter off to the Halifax last week asking for £3,800ish back and received their letter asking to give them 4 weeks to look into it - unless they get back to me before the 2nd October, my LBA letter wil be going then.

 

My real reason for posting is that my pet insurance is with Sainsburys and the direct debit is set to go out on the 2nd of each month but for some reason, in August they didn't request it until the 9th and as I was £1.50 short, the Halifax refused it and charged me £39 for the pleasure. Rang Sainsburys to ask why it was requested a week late and the lady on the phone said that they had some problems with the direct debits and that if I wrote into them enclosing a copy of the letter from my bank, Sainsburys should reimburse me the bank charge as it was their fault they tried to take it late. Sent the letter and received a reply from them dated 6th September saying that they will look into it and they aim to resolve it within 10 working days - it is now on the 13th working day since their letter and have they contacted me again? NOPE!

 

Just rang them to ask what is happening and waiting for a call back from their Customer Services Executive with an update - lucky me. The funny thing is on their website, they list their partner bank as the Halifax!!!! So if Sainsburys wriggle out of refunding the charge, I'll just get in back in my bank charges refund and if they do refund it, and the Halifax also pay up - I'm a winner!!!

About to send my LBA letter today and just had a call from them offering me £1397! Told him that I wouldn't accept it at the moment and wanted the full amount. He is going to put it in writing to me but what do I do now? Do I wait for their letter or do I do my LBA today?

 

I have to admit I was tempted but as I'm claiming £3,929, I'll carry on with my claim.

Hi

 

Already posted this on my thread but thought it might get missed.

 

The Halifax have just rang me offering me £1,397 in full and final settlement, but as I'm asking for £3,929, told the gentleman that I wanted the full amount. I was tempted to accept but as I told him, it's my money and I would like it back please? He said that £1,397 was the highest he could go and he would confirm the offer by letter.

 

What I wanted to ask was I'm due to send my LBA letter today, do I still send it and mention the telephone call and offer but that I will be continuing, or do I wait for their letter to come?

 

Thanks

Stick with your timetable and do not let the bank dictate theirs to you. If the 14 days are up then send your LBA regardless, I would make no mention of the phone call or the offer. If you don't get a satisfactory reply to the LBA after 14 days then put in your court claim.

 

The bank will try every dodge to try and delay you, don't let them. The timescale is in your hands and yours alone.

If I were you I would stick to your timetable

 

You can accept it as an interim payment by adjusting the LBA to reflect this. You just need to make it clear that you are not accepting it as full and final and you will still take them to court for the full amount.

 

You may well find that they then withdraw this offer anyway because you won't accept it as full and final but, stick it out for the whole amount -it is well worth it IMO.

Help - going to send off my LBA today but altered it slightly to read:-

 

 

Thank you for your telephone conversation of today’s date offering me the sum of £1,397.00 in settlement of my bank charges claimed. I would advise you that I will accept this as an interim payment but will continue to pursue the remaining of the amount I am claiming.

I now understand that the regime of 'fees' which you have been applying to my account in relation to direct debit refusals, exceeding overdraft limits and so forth are unlawful at Common Law, Statute and recent Consumer regulations.

 

I would draw your attention to the terms of the contract which you agreed to at the time that I opened my account. It is an implied term of that contract that you would conduct yourselves lawfully and in a manner which complies with UK law.

 

I am frankly shocked that you have operated my account in this way as I had always reposed confidence in your integrity and expertise as my fiduciary.

 

I calculate that you have taken £3,929.00. I am enclosing a copy of the schedule of the charges which I am claiming. I have already sent you a copy of this in my original letter of the 18 September 2006.

 

I require repayment in full of this money. If you do not comply fully within 14 days then I shall begin a claim against you for the full amount plus interest plus my costs and without further notice.

 

Does the first paragraph sound ok?

Thanks

Personally I wouldn't thank them for their call (but that's just me being in a bad mood!). I would say further to our telephone conversation I confirm that accept your offer of £1,397.00 as an interm payment, however advise you that I will continue to pursue the remaining of the amount I am claiming.

 

The letter is fine.

Hi,

 

I'm looking to act on my Mum's behalf - she just got charged £39 for going over OD 14p. Does anyone know the best way of going about this? Was think a letter from her to bank to say direct through me? Problem is I live 250 miles away and reading through some of the repsonse times will want to keep things moving. In addition, don't want her to have to deal with the bank on the phone.

 

Thanks

Hi

 

After my telephone conversation on Tuesday with the Halifax, I sent my LBA mentioning that I would accept their offer of £1,397.00 as an interim payment but would continue to pursue them for the rest - I'm claiming £3,929.00. Received their letter today confirming their offer and enclosing an acceptance form for me to complete and send back.

 

In the letter it states that they are not prepared to refund me the charges for the last 6 years, and will only refund the last 24 months as a gesture of goodwill. That it is upto me to ensure sufficient funds are in my account, to avoid charges being made, and that they reserve the right to close my account if I fail to manage it correctly.

 

Is this a standard letter and if so, do I do anything or just wait for the LBA to reach them and see if they contact me again with an offer? If they don't contact me before, on the 18 October I will make my claim through Moneyclaim.

 

Thanks

It is a standard letter, apart from the 24 months. The common response is to only offer 6 months. Theres a template letter to reject the offer in the library here - http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/bank-templates-library/25716-rejection-settlement-offer.html

 

and definately stick to your LBA timescales.

 

Good Luck

I'm sending them the letter Aardvark recommended but should I be really cheeky and use the prepaid envelope they've sent me with their letter confirming their offer?

 

Not going to send it recorded delivery, as I've done with the rest as I sent them my LBA on Tuesday by recorded.

I would highly recommend sending the letter recorded delivery. Those who chose not to generally find that the bank didn't receive their letter.
