    • I would challenge all the way ! Check one of my posts as I had a similar issue with my local authority , tree branches and bush covering sign. Took photos same day and a week later lo and behold the branches were cut back. Not my issue the council does not maintain the highways. Looking at your photos how could you tell there were any lines? Of course the council threw it straight back so I appealed and went to the next level and submitted my photos as evidence , they backed down then although still did not admit defeat and stated it as a goodwill gesture... I got some great advice on here so don't be stressed or worried follow the guidelines on here. Either way they are going to try to force you to pay so don't give the @$$ holes an easy ride....
    • Morning Caggers. Hope everybody is safe and well.   Ok will try to make this brief as possible !  Got an early xmas gift from Minster Bay watch in York while working on a site on a retail park, Vehicle overstayed max period (2 hours) . Basically had a short contract with the NHS delivering and installing IT equipment to one of their offices based on the retail park above one of the retail stores. The signage stated two hours max parking , spoke to receptionist who said he would put me on the exclusion list while I was there. Basically has me entering at 8.12 and exit at 15.00 ( to grab some lunch )  although I was there until 6.30pm at night still working. So in theory 8.12am till 18.30pm To add into the mix the car I was driving was just purchased on the 7th Nov and the charge letter dated 10th Nov so again in theory the transfer of ownership was not in my name then , I notice on letter it states we may have obtained your details from DVLA. I actually got the V5 today stating acquired vehicle on 7th Nov   So in the letter column on left is as follows:   Charge notice no ***** Date of contravention - 10/11/2020 Vehicle reg - My current vehicle Vehicle make - - Current vehicle Vehicle model - Current vehicle  Charge value - £100 Date of issue - 20th Nov  Location - Heslington Retail Park - York - YO10 5LA   I have attached a pic of the main body of the letter they are of course offering a discount of £60 ....how jolly nice    So best course of action?   1) Tell them I was driver\owner but working for the NHS with proof of site visit and exemption and lay it on thick about being NHS worker?  (although I imagine it won't make a difference)  2) Deny all knowledge as technically I was not the owner at that point and ask them to prove it  3) Totally ignore and wait for the toilet paper...sorry threat o grams?   I have now left that contract but still have my NHS badge as proof of employment   Thanks NTD...

Trying to calculate PPI offer from old Woolwich loan from Barclays Bank


Recommended Posts

I recently received a PPI offer from Barclays re an old Woolwich loan dated back to January 1989. 

They previously could not locate this under previous searches prior to the FCA deadline as all Woolwich current accounts had been deleted from the banking system when Barclays took over. 

 

They have made an offer of £2,163 but when I put the figures in the PPI calculators on-line, it comes out at £3k - £4k.  

The APR was 20.5%. 

Monthly payments were £141.29 for 60 months,

the credit agreement does not identify the payments for the loan and insurance separately.

 

 

Amount of loan

£5000.00

Optional Care Insurance

£469.50

Total loan

£5469.50

Interest

£2750.00

Add Interest

£257.90

Total interest

£3007.90

Amount Payable

£7750.00

Amount Payable

£727.40

Total amount payable

£8477.40

 

I remember seeing an on-line calculator on Martin Lewis site but it is no longer there and was wondering if someone could calculate the figures for me please or refer me to a calculator where I can do it myself. 

 

The letter says that if I think their calculations are incorrect then I have 3 months to send it back to them to look at again with my calculations before I send it to FOS within 6 months (p.s. I managed to find my old loan agreement).

 

Any help with these calculations would be very helpful.

 

Thank you

 

Any assistance would be very helpful.

Thank you for your quick reply.  Will read asap.  I have tried to scan and rephotocopy but as it is an old document, the text is very faint.  I will have to take it to a shop and try to photocopy again on a dark setting.  Will upload later.

you only need to be able to see the total sum for PPI paid and the total sum of the loan

either both with interest or both without

 

PPIPCM% = PPI/PPI+LOANx100 = % of total loan that was for PPI = say 13%

 

then everytime you paid anything ...13% was for PPI

then on the date of EVERY payment made ..

you enter that figure individually in the statint sheet.

 

https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/topic/286114-latest-spreadsheets-ppi-claims-and-charges-claims-dec-2011/

 

you leave the claimto date alone

the spreadsheet does everything for you.

Sorry but the problem was that the document is old and you could not see the figures when photocopied - have managed to do so now.  Thank you for the calculator - will try that and see how I get on.  I have now uploaded the document.  Thank you for your patience.

so 

 

469.5/5469.5*100=8.6% (PPIPCM%)

 

141.29*8.6%=£12.15p  (PPIPCM )

 

off you go

I think I have managed this after a few tries. 

 

To make sure that I have the correct calculation, 

is the 'interest at 8% Simple' in Row 20/Column K meant to be £86.95 for £12.15 or I have used the spreadsheet incorrectly? 

 

Looking at their letter again, they state they have paid 'statutory rate of 8% from 1 April 1993 and at 15% before that'.  Their breakdown does not provide the difference in % from the dates mentioned above. 

How would this be calculated?  

 

Also is the statutory rate paid for the lifetime of the loan only or to the current date that they made their decision?  You have been so helpful in providing these spreadsheets. 

 

Thank you.

thats quite interesting, as they are giving you a greater int rate before 1993, i am unaware of anything special about that date concerning statutory int , but it means more money for you, so i wouldn't worry

yes the spreadsheet is correct.

 

it runs till the day they settle.

 

have they actually given a fixed figure for the 15% period, if so, add that the the 'current' spreadsheet result and that should equal what they should be refunding....

does it match?

So according to this calculator my refund should be £4562.96 at the 8%.   This is in line with some of the management firms calculator on-line.   I have checked their letter again and they have paid from 1 Jan 1989 - 1 Jan 1994 only. They have refunded all the insurance premiums totalling £469.50 and the interest paid on the premiums to date of £257.90.  Additional interest of £1,436.36 after tax on top of refund as compensation.  Statutory rate of 8% from 1 Apr 1993 and at 15% before that.  They have not provided a breakdown of payments from 15% - 8%.  Only below:

 

£  469.50 - Refund of PPI premiums paid

£  257.90 - Refund of interest charge on the premiums paid

£1,795.44 - Statutory compensation

-£      0.00 - Less any previous successful claim

-£      0.00 - Less any previous refunds made directly as result of this policy

-£       0.00 - Less any statutory compensation already paid

-£   359.08 - Deduction from any statutory compensation interest for income tax at 20%

_________

£2,163.76 - Total refund due

 

This will be the second time I am returning their calculations.  They made a decision last year and used a wrong date as they could not read the date and made up a date then it went to the back of the queue to be recalculated.  I had already queried the refund amount with them and they have moved the date again from the 22 Jan to 1 Jan!

 

Are they using a different calculator/principal why the figures are so far apart?  How am I going to show them this calculation without it going to FOS and sitting there for years to be assessed?

 

Can I also ask how to do the 15% calculation?  Thanks so much.

as i said unsure of what this 15% is about.

 

the FOS/FCA clearly describe how refund calcs show have been made the their relevant sites.

 

p'haps at this juncture it might be better to scan up to ONE multipage PDF their refund letters 

another set of eyes is always belter.

well there you go you see.

not once have you mentioned that this was a commission refund determined by the Plevin ruling.

 

you can't have BOTH.

 

either you accept the plevin commission reclaim

or 

you reject it and push for a reclaim of the actual PPI sums paid.

 

Did you initially complain?

or was this all shock after receiving a letter that a refund was due?

This is interesting as I was not aware that there was a difference in the PPI claims/calculations. 

 

Long story: I asked for this PPI reclaim over 5 years ago. 

The Woolwich loan was taken out when I had a Woolwich current account. 

The banking sort code for Woolwich was deleted off the banking system when Barclays inherited it hence they could not find my current account let alone the loan. 

 

They had told me that I had provide proof of the loan as they could not locate it. 

I did the FCA deadline search and it still was not located. 

 

As this was the last resort, I had to go into the loft and found it by chance. 

They changed the new reference number from the search and attached it to the old past reference number as the complaint was still on their system. 

 

Even speaking to them about their calculations and the one I got from the on-line calculators, no one can explain the difference, they just keep saying that they cannot speak to the PPI calculations team, they have to email them! 

 

Also I thought the Plevin paragraph was standard information. 

So this is where the mystery lies,

 

I can reject the Plevin calculation and ask for calculations based on my actual PPI sums paid,

 

would this then be in line with your calculator?

Plevin is not a calculation.

its a refund of commission they got as they had a backhander of greater than 50% of the PPI sum paid for selling it on behalf of the insurance company that underwrote the PPI policy.

 

you are after reclaiming the PPI itself.

and that is what all our PPI stuff is geared too.

 

have you still a copy of what you originally sent

though as you don't even KNOW what plevin was , how could you have ever have asked for it.!!

 

pers i'd write back. (you seriously need to stop talking on the phone!!)

stating quite clearly that you REJECT totally their refund under the Plevin Rules.

my Claim was to reclaim the PPI i paid, not for a refund of your hidden commission!!

 

i give your 14 days to refund inline with the enclosed spreadsheet , else i will raise a complaint without further notice to the FOS.

 

please reply in Writing Only.
