Hi and welcome to the forum, if you get somebody else to write the cheque I would make sure that you put your name and address on the reverse of the cheque and also your account number. It needs to be payable to the bank in question.

Hi Zippo Man


You can put a postal order in made out to the bank. If you make a call to the bank they may send them to you for free. Worth a try.


Before you start please have a thorough read of the FAQs (there’s a Step by Step guide here too). You should print both of these out to refer to, so as to avoid having to ask basic questions later.


Then look at other threads in your bank’s forum, so as you know what you can expect to happen. You can claim back your charges, and a few are trying for the payback of Early Redemption Charges on loans and Mortgages.

You need to spend 2 or 3 days gradually getting your head round everything. If you find a forum/thread/post of interest, save it in your Favourites, so as you can always find it easily.


There’s a lot to take in, but it’s time well spent and will ensure that you succeed in your claim without problems. Remember it’s not a race, don’t rush, just follow the guidelines one step at a time.


This is a self-help forum and you must be prepared to put in time and effort. It is your claim, your money and you cannot expect others to do all the work for you.


When you feel confident that you understand the process and the various stages involved, start a new thread in your bank’s forum and post your progress and any questions there and you’ll get plenty of help.


All the info to get you started is here:


There are more links below to assist you get around the site.


Good luck
