Issued the first letter on the 7 April 2006 requesting the repayment of the charges that have been added to my account.

Dear Mr xxxxxx

I am sorry you have had to contact us about the charges on your account. Thank you for taking the time and trouble to do so.

I have passed your concerns to our Head Office Customer Relations team and they will let you have a response or update as quickly as they can but no later than 10 May 2006. In the meantime if you need to speak to them please call on 0800282390. I have enclosed a leaflet explaining how Barclays works to resolve complaints. I hope you find this helpful.

 

Thank you for bringing this to my attention.

 

Yours sincerely.

 

This looks like the their standard letter telling me to go and bury my head in the sand.

 

I'm sticking to the timetable outlined in the first letter, just waiting to see if I will receive any further replies before I send the second letter before action.

Sorry for not keeping you up to date.

 

Just like to inform you that my N1 claim form was filed on the 12 May 2006 and was served today the 17 May 2006. I'll fill the detail in the Litigation in Progress.

 

Today I also received a letter from Barclays they are willing to offer me £800.00 as the sum in full and final settlement. This letter was the response to my LBA which has exceeded my time scale. Shall I reply to this letter, telling them that the Claim is in progress and that the amount claimed is £2770.77 which includes the interest and court fees.

I've followed the procedures of filling in the court forms and all was going well until to day.

 

I've received a General Form of Judgement or Order.

 

Upon reading the papers filed.

 

IT IS ORDERED THAT

 

1. The Claimant must identify each and every debit on him, upon which £XXXX.XX is calculated,giving dates and amounts in each case and why he contends such debit was contrary to contract and agreed banking procedures to law by 4pm 24 July 2006 or claim struck out.

 

2. Defendant have permission to amend defence if so by 4pm 7 August 2006.

 

3. The file to be referred back thereafter.

 

I'm at a bit of a loss here, I attached to the N1 a schedule using the spreadsheet identifying the charges giving dates and the amounts, and in filling out the N1 form why the debit were contrary to contract.

Do I need to send a copy of the 'schedule' to the Court and Barclays and what reply do I need to give to their question (why he contends such debit was contrary to contract and agreed banking procedures to law)

where has this come from - the Court or Barclays/solicitors?

I think this may be a CPR18 - do a search - and isn't applicable to a case that is in small claims. There are others that will know better - I'm surprsied they haven't replied yet.

Here's hoping someone does

Hi itsmine,

 

Don't be afraid of contacting the court themselves and asking exactly what this is about. As you say, you've enclosed a schedule of charges breaking down the charges placed against you, and presumably your Particulars of Claim used something similar to the template particulars in the Bank Templates Library?

 

This is an off-the-cuff remark - I've been away from the forum a bit over the last week or so, getting back into it Monday - but to me it sounds as though Barclays Solicitors have filed for a judgement against you for one reason or another - presumably you missed no deadlines and provided them with a copy of the schedule of charges?

 

Thinking about it, it could simply be that - they've not had a copy of the schedule of charges, and instead of asking you directly for one filed for a judgement against you on the grounds of insufficient information. Which is absolute cod if you ask me, as they blatantly have the information in the Bank's files.

 

As mentioned - give the courts a ring and ask for some help. Don't forget, generally speaking the court is on your side in cases such as these - Joe Public vs Corporation.

reload vs Lloyds - £2703.11 Settlement Reached 14/07/06.

reload vs Lloyds Round 2 - Prelim sent 27/03/07. £435 owed.

reload vs Capital One - £456.57 Settlement Reached 14/07/06.

reload's mum vs Barclays - £745 owed. £375 partial settlement reached 17/10/06.

Lloyds Bank - The Template Response Letters!

If you sent a detailed breakdown of all charges to the bank with your LBA, and provided another copy to the court with your N1, you should not really need to do so again. However, with all the claims taking place at the moment it is possible that it has become mislaid.

 

When you filled in your N1, did the court clerk make a photocopy of the form and attached paperwork, and if so, did they give you a copy? If they did, then you need to visit the court, show them the copy, and explain that the requested information has already been provided.

 

You also need to check the particulars of your claim, and ensure that reference is made to the UTCCRs as well as common and statute law. Again, this should have formed part of your LBA, as well as being entered in the "particulars" section of your claim form.

 

Best advice would be to print out your LBA again, and also a copy of your spreadsheet detailing the applied charges, and take them along to the court with the letter/form of judgement. Explain that they can take copies of whatever they feel is necessary, and that you authorise them to provide a copy to the defendant.

 

If there is anything else that they require, then they are to give you a list, so that you can write it down, and we can deal with that when it arises...

 

Good luck.

I've just got my court date which is on the 21 November 2006.
