Very old LLoyds Business bank loan 1991

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, need some advice on where and what to do next on my fathers ppi claim.

 

The claim relates to a TSB 40,000 pound business loan my father started in approx 1991.

 

We have the account no from old 1994/95 bank statements showing he was paying about 500/600 per month for the loan.

 

At first Lloyd’s stated that they could not locate the loan, then they said they located the loan account but no proof/record of ppi

 

So I did a SAR, (copied off this site)they have just sent back the cheques stating they do not keep records this long and they can find nothing.

 

Is the standard of proof on me to prove the existence of PPI or is it for them to prove there was not.

 

What’s my next step please.....Thanks in advance for any help and advice

Thank you.

 

I was hoping it would be a slightly different letter. Lloyds have been sending letters out claiming that they have investigated all of their historical and archival records and found nothing. These letters have always been untrue and in fact they were criticised by the FCA for sending them out and warned not to send them. However they have continued sending them.

 

Well they are asking you for further information and they are also suggesting you can go to the ombudsman.

 

Are you going to send them the further information that they want?

First of all, I'm not convinced that any of these banks don't have records earlier then for instance, 2001. We know that the NatWest and the RBS have archives going back at least until 1994. About 10 years ago I met and interviewed a woman who was an archivist for Abbey National then Abbey eventually Santander. She told me that they keep all their records going back to 1933. She said that they were paper records and then in the 1960s they move to microfiche and then eventually to electronic records. Apparently they have/had an archive centre in Leighton Buzzard. I don't know if it still exists.

 

However, there must be lots of clients with important business going back well before 2001 and I know that Lloyds are habitual liars. I know of at least three SAR breaches that they have committed and also lies from them about the nonexistence of PPI accompanied by misleading letters claiming to have searched for their archives. They were even criticised for this by the FCA in 2015 – but yet they continued to do this. I have a copy of an identical letter criticised by the FCA which was sent to me in 2017.

 

Of course I could be wrong – maybe they really have destroyed everything – but I doubt it.

 

One comment which stands out for me in their letter of 23 March which you have posted is that they refer uniquely to their electronic records and they are essentially saying that as the information you are looking for predates the electronic records, they haven't been able to carry out a proper search – or maybe no search at all.

 

They talk in terms of a general duty to delete information – but they don't specifically say that your information has been deleted.

 

What one really needs is a way to discover if they maintain a microfiche archive or a paper archive somewhere. I would expect that records at least from 1970 onwards to 2001 would have been kept on microfiche.

 

I don't trust Lloyds bank – and I think anyone who does is a fool. Lloyds routinely break the law in terms of data breaches, mis-selling of products, the use of deceptive/misleading letters. Why is it they are suddenly so squeakyclean now?

Thanks again you guys for helping me out and your lengthy response bankfodder, i hear and agree what you are saying, but where does that leave me now, have i got a next step.... what do you suggest?

To me it sounds as though data before August 2001 is not stored in a "relevant filing system" (a definition from the DPA) and therefore is not easily searchable. As such they require more context and information in order to locate such data.

 

Thanks again you guys for helping me out and your lengthy response bankfodder, i hear and agree what you are saying, but where does that leave me now, have i got a next step.... what do you suggest?

 

One of the letters suggests that the business was a partnership. Does the other partner have any records? Or information that would help Lloyds with tracing?

 

Also, it looks as though you sent the SAR to their Andover address. You may wish to try the equivalent team within their Commercial Banking arm:

Commercial Banking DSAR Team

Lloyds Banking Group

1st Floor East

Tower House

Charterhall Drive

Chester

CH88 3AN

This is an extremely interesting point and a very good suggestion indeed.

 

Also, thank you very much indeed for this new DSAR address. This is the kind of thing that generally speaking Lloyds tends not to publicise very much.

 

Under the new GDPR regime, they would be obliged to cascade the request to all of the departments and entities within the group. Under the present SAR system, if you don't target your SAR correctly then Lloyds/data controller would be legally justified in not responding with a full disclosure.

 

As I have said previously, they are thoroughly dishonest – but of course so are the rest of them.

 

Swinterton, I think you should take out the suggestion of sending an SAR specifically to the commercial DSAR team and see what that produces. However, send it on 25th May.

 

Also, I think that your SAR should specifically ask them to identify any sources or archives which they have not searched because they feel that it could be disproportionate. Ask them also whether there are any paper or microfiche archives in existence which may contain your data but which they have not searched.

 

What a nuisance one has to try and be so canny all the time with these people.

Thank you St Jane for chipping in, that sounds like a good plan. Yes, it was a joint venture/business but i have provided them with all names DOB and addresses going back 30 years for the both of them, i don't think there is anything else i could provide....nat ins numbers maybe, i could try that.

 

Bankfodder - i will do as you suggested, i am going to type up a new SAR with the alterations and specific questions tonight then get it to my mother and father to sign and in the post for tomorrow.

i will keep you guys posted with any updates, and once again thank you for taking the time to respond

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • I was talked into signing up with Future Comms (future-comms.co.uk) who cold-called me to change my mobile contract to them, via 02, rather than EE. I have a small business (only me!) and it's a business contract. True, the 4G network is better for my area. This company seemed to be a marketing set-up for various telecoms companies, so I assumed anything I signed would be with 02 and didn't think it might be a problem.
       
      They sent an email whilst I was on the phone to set up the direct debit mandate with my bank which I signed electronically. That was the first, of many, problems I found. Apparently THAT was my contract, binding me to 3 years and no 'cooling off' period, because I was a 'business' (meaning any consumer rights did not apply). When I subsequently asked in writing for a copy of my contract, that is what they sent - when I argued it was a DD mandate they insisted it was my contract!
       
      2 days later they asked for my phone details to get it unlocked which I sent. 10 days later, EE closed my account, so I changed the SIM card to 02 that had come a few days before. No network! They had done nothing about unlocking it. Fortunately I was lucky with EE who managed to give me the right codes, rather than the usual 10 days to go through Samsung.
       
      By this time I was suspicious of their set-up and wanted to cancel. As I said earlier, I found myself trapped into a 3 year contract with no 14 day cooling off period (they don't offer that). Promises to deal with my complaints never happened, promised return calls neither....and on and on.
       
      Ofcom's rules apply to consumers and small businesses (under 10 employees), yet this shower don't acknowledge that. They just repeat and repeat that I am a business so it doesn't apply. To cancel the contract I have to pay the full 3 year's fees!!
       
      I would like to know if others have had similar experiences? Or does anyone know how I can maybe declare the 'contract' unenforceable? I have never before been locked into something without a clear written contract, with t&c's! And, yes, I have asked, and yes, I have been ignored.
