Hi

 

Im trying to claim mortgage charges on a mortgage taken out in1984 and redeemed in November 2004 initially with Alliance&leicester the initial period was 25 years and the total of the charges is£1,555.00 plus compound interest total £2,527.69

 

This claim ia now in the small claims court and Santander solicitors has submitted a application notice to get the claim struck out and the hearing is on May 3.In a letter received yesterday they mentioned section 5 of the limitations act and said the sums claimed were irrecoverable.

 

They say i can withdraw the claim and pay santander just under£300.00 or if i pursue the claim they will claim the full costs witch they estimate at over£1,500

 

advice please

If it has been allocated to the small claims track, then unless you are litigating very unreasonably in some way, they won't be awarded their costs. In that case they are just bluffing or to use legal language – bullying.

 

If they have put that threat in a letter, then I think that you should take it along to the court and say that you think that the solicitors are acting abusively of a litigant in person who is on the small claims track. If you said to the judge gently and pass a copy of the letter to the judge – I don't think it can hurt you. The solicitors need to start understanding that they can't deal with people like this. Who are the solicitors?

Incidentally, if the charges in 2004 equalled £1500, then I would have thought you could be looking at a lot more than 2 1/2 thousand pounds. Apart from anything else, there is the standard 8%. Have you included this in your claim? Maybe you could post up your claim form in PDF format
