Hi All

 

1st post here, although been reading through loads over the last few weeks. What a great site this is.

 

I asked for my 6 yrs of statements mid December and recieved 23 letters through the post yesterday. I've gone through all the charges and was amazed to find £3,422 worth.

 

I've sent my 1st letter recorded delivery with a print out of charges today to my local branch, they've got 2 weeks to reply as I understand, then its the LBA letter.

 

I'll sit and wait, to see what they come up with.

 

Cheers

Drew

Well that was quick. I've received a letter today from them saying they have passed my letter onto customer relations, who will be in touch.

 

Does anyone one know if customer relations will actually contact me?

they do eventually by letter acknowledging your 'concerns with the charges' yeah too right we are!

 

just keep to your timetable. it seems, after reading some of the other threads, that the Halifax are beginning to offer full refunds instead of stretching it out to the court stages............no harm in calling before you do the MCOL bit............see my thread for number or Hillards thread....

 

good luck

Hi Folks

 

Just double checking before I send my LBA off tomorrow. Is it the name of my local courthouse i put on the letter?

 

Not heard a peep from the Halifax, since that initial letter, so off the LBA goes in the morning.

 

Thanks all

just a little bump before bedtime :D

 

I'm sending it tomorrow morning. So if anyone can confirm it's your local courthouse you put on the LBA that'd be great.

I'm confused the LBA makes no reference to any courthouse. Where were you thinking of putting it?

Also confused - what procedures are you following that involve the court at this stage ?

 

Suggest reading a lot more, the FAQ's (http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/faqs-please-read-these/) , http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/faqs-please-read-these/31460-step-step-instructions.html, other threads - you're obviously going wrong somewhere?

 

The LBA can be found here:- http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/bank-templates-library/92-3-letter-before-action.html

Thanks for the replies - I was using the LBA from Martin's MSE site, I'll use the template on this site instead.

Hi All

 

Just a quick question : Up till now on both the prelim and the LBA letters i've sent, I've only listed charges for unauthorsied OD, unpaid DD's etc.

 

Is it possible to claim for the interest caused by going overdrawn, these charges usually are around £5 or so each month.

 

If it is possible to claim for these charges, am I to late? Or can I add them on to the mcol, which I file early next week?

 

Thanks for all the help so far.

I noticed on the mcol template - it states the month/year your account was opened - is it vital to put that info, i don't no when i opened my account.

Just a quick yes or no would be most welcome.

 

Thanks

This is just my opinion.

 

I claimed for interest accrued by them taking charges out and making me overdrawn. And they paid me!

 

I would amend your schedule of charges to reflect this and then send a letter to Trinity Road today saying, further to my LBA I will file on Thurs the enclosed schedule blah blah.

 

I don't think it matters too much that you haven't mentioned it before because when we file on MCOL we add on for the first time the interest that the spreadsheets work out!

I think it's dependent on where u live in the UK - I'm in the North West, so my offer came from Leeds, so i sent my ROS back to the Customer Relations dept in Leeds.

 

Where u from? I'm sure someone here can point u to the correct regional location. If not, sending letter to the Head office at Trinity Road will always end up at the correct place, although it may take a little longer to get there.

 

Regards

Hi Guys

 

I'm just filling the MCOL in, ready to submit tomorrow morning. It's a bit of a daft question, but just want to make sure it's right before hand.

 

Where it's asks for "Amount Claimed", I'm assuming I put the whole total, ie including the interest. Is that right?

 

Thanks

I noticed it says "I will send another copy of the charges to halifax", on the mcol template, have people been doing this as a rule? Will the court need a copy also? If so do you include the 8% interest figures?
