just a point to add....I have submitted a total claim (aprrox £3500) for my two accounts. i have since read elsewhere tat you shouldn't submitt more than one claim? Will this be a problem?

 

Also, what is the probability of them closing your account after payment has been made following a succesful claim?

if the 14 day deadline is up and no response from the banks, then it is time to submit the court forms, personally i`d submit N1 form via your local county court, but thats just my 2 pennies worth, altho there is nowt wrong with MCOL, i just prefer the paper version.

 

Good luck and let us know what happens

Thanks!

Off to local court then! I will download the N1 form and fill it out.

 

Quick question....I'm claiming total £3573.95, so now i add 8% interest, so means total claim now - £3859,87. Should I add that into my schedule of charges total or do I need to show seperate 8% for each charge?

you need to show the interest on each charge before yo submit it to the courts, there`s a very good interest calculater you can use

all you need to do is just fill in the blanks basically and the spreedsheet does the rest :D

Mr McLean,

On 27th November, I sent a letter to yourself expressing my displeasure at your response to my request for refund of bank charges. Detailed within this letter (attached) I expressed to you that I had set a deadline of 14 Calendar days in which to respond to me. The 14 days have expired today and I have received no response to my letter.

Due to the Royal Bank of Scotland’s failure to comply, I am now processing my claim via the local district court at East Kilbride Civic Centre. I will be submitting the relevant forms and schedule of charges this afternoon. Now I will also be claiming 8% contractual interest on top of my initial claim and all costs incurred during this claim.

For your reference, see attached details of all charges against my two accounts.

I will gladly accept FULL payment of my claim to date by return to prevent RBS with MORE court action, but rest assured, I am pursuing this avenue unless my full amount is refunded before the court date.

To Summarise:

Premier Account:

Total Penalties - £2438.95

Total Interest - £456.29

Total Claim via Court – £2895.24

Gold Deposit:

Total Penalties - £1135.00

Total Interest - £172.19

Total Claim via Court – £1307.19

Total Claim - £3,573.95

Total Claim via Court - £4202.43

Look forward to your positive response.

Regards,

response!

Dear Mr Lochrin,

 

Thanks for letting me know your intentions. We wouldn't be able to respond

to you with a decision for a little while yet. We consider claims of a size

such as yours carefully and we have a large number on the go at the moment.

That being the case, you are probably right to progress matters through the

courts.

 

I am sorry we were not able to reach agreement quickly enough.

Well, despite other emails from Mr T where he asked me to give them a little longer, I'm process with court proceedings.

 

Can anyone tell me in regards to interest, do you claim 8% interest per day + 8% APR now?

As below:

Total Charges - £3,573.95

Daily interest @ 8% - £628.48

8% APR of total charges- £285.92

Total Claim - £4488.35

 

Is this correct? Thanks for help!!

I used the branch...it says in Court Guidance notes for N1 to use the registered address or a business address that '....has a real, or the most, connection with the claim.'

Thanks!

For Scotland it is slightly different. it asks for name and address of person of whom claim is against.....so maybe technically just need to put RBS and branch address.

 

Do you have any idea about the interest to claim? 8% daily interest + 8% APR or just one or the other?

In England interest applied under section 69 of the county courts act is at 8% APR, but then you give the court a daily interest figure (same 8% rate), the wording is suggested in form N1A...

 

The claimant claims interest under section 69 of the county courts act 1984 at the rate of 8% per year from [date of first offence claimed] to [date of claim issue] of £xxxx and also interest at the same rate up to the date of judgement orearlier repayment at a daily rate of £xxx

 

Daily rate is calculated by multiplying amount of your claim by 0.00022.

 

I'm sorry if this is misleading as far as the Scottish situation of which I have no knowledge.

    • 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....

    • 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.
