HP Mum v BC reclaiming penalties and Compound Int't **WON** (probably)

Recommended Posts

If I ask for the card balance to be reduced - can I also request they reissue a new valid card?

Hi Mum,

 

If they haven't mentioned reducing any balance you owe, say nothing for now. If they repay you direct, you can make a pay't to reduce the a/c balance or not. That's up to you.

 

Personally, I'd be focusing on getting the sol'rs to refund the best amount you can get, regardless of CI, Tomlin Orders or anything else !!

Hi Mum,

 

From experience here, I assume you have reached an acceptable settlement with BC but you're tied by confidentiality so can't confirm the existence or terms of a settlement agreement.

 

Unless you say anything to the contrary, I'll change your thread title to reflect your "probable" win with compound interest.

hello

 

 

Just a quick question: during the year long legal process of making a claim against barc for reclaim of penalty charges and CI barc continued to add penalty charges to my card if ever I over-stepped the payment date by a day or two. There weren't many times this happened. But these charges have added up, not by much, but they have added up. Should I write to barc again and remind them that they shouldn't be adding £12 charges to my account and could they please refund them??

Is it possible that barc can kind of accept that they shouldn't/must not add late payment charges to customer's accounts and yet if the customer retains a card that barc still continue to add the same disputed charges every month....

Be interested to hear feedback on this

Hi Mum,

 

I would certainly claim back any further penalty fees added to the a/c that weren't included in the earlier claim.

 

Tell them you have reclaimed the fees in court action before and will do so again unless they refund the charges but, if they refund the charges without court action, you will not seek any interest from them.

 

As regards your query, your earlier court action will NOT alter the imposition of penalty charges if you fail to pay on time what is due.

 

:-)

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.

    • I am new here but very glad to find my way here and would welcome any input.
       
      i purchased a brand new campervan conversion from Hillside Leisure (175 miles from our home) on July 26th for £31,000 and, within 48 hours, during a storm, the alarm began to sound incessantly. We could not get it to stop, even after trying everything listed in the manual. We phoned Hillside on Saturday July 28th around 2.00pm. The young man who answered the phone said he would seek the advice of their technician and call us back, which he did. The technician told us that they, Hillside, couldn’t help, but that we should take the van to Nissan (the van is a Nissan) as the fault would lie with one of their components.
