Hi,

I have just spent the last week looking arounbd this site to try and get the hang of things, and I'm afraid there is a BIG problem.....................

 

It's too damn addictive!!! :D

 

Anyway, started to take the plunge with Halifax. Tried to start a new thread on Hal. site but it won't let me post.

Can anyone tell me what Debit under Advice is on my statements ( £33)

The charge for unpaid chq/d/d is the same charge but itemised differently

Are these reclaimable? ( debit under advice I mean)

Hi - first of all, good luck!!! I too am claiming against the Halifax - so if you get the chance, have a look at my thread and it'll give you an idea of my experience. Overall, my claim has been very quick when compared to some. Basically, the only thing I would say is "don't worry"!!!! This site is excellent and the information, advice, help and support you'll receive is amazing. Sorry, I can't help with the "debit under advice" bit -- mine were all "charges as notified"!!!!!! Best wishes.

Halifax - £2281, successfully refunded all charges after LBA letter & telephone call.

Have been offered the difference between the £20 and £12 charges from Capital One -- am sending LBA for remainder.

GE Money - Received settlement of £441, being total charges requested. No interest though.

CCA'd Bank of Scotland / Blair Oliver Scott to produce CCA Agreements on two Credit Cards - well in default, although still chasing payment!!!

EOS Solutions "ceased action on account" on behalf of a friend.

 

All in all, quite busy at the moment and enjoying every minute of it
:eek:

Hi there and welcome to the site.

I have moved you here from the welcome ....now you have your own thread in Halifax.

The charge you refere to is claimable.

Under advice will mean that you were previously informed (presumably by letter) that this charge would be taken.

 

Feel free to ask further questions.

Have a browse through current Halifax claims in this section ;)

I'm presuming you've already checked this:

 

Information Commissioners - Data Protection Public Register

 

but if not, you can type in the company name and it brings up the relevant Head Office details. There's no reason why you can't send your DPA addressed to the Data Controller at the Trinity Road address for a Halifax C/C.

I understand from a few peeps that are claiming from Halifax that they are turning down claims flat.

 

Their T&C's are:

 

Paid Item

 

A transaction processing fee for each card payment, cheque, S/O or D/D that we pay

 

Unpaid Item

 

An administration fee charged when we return unpaid cheque, card payment, d/d , s/o or any transaction we decide not to pay if insufficient funds ....

 

Unarranged O/D administration fee

 

An overdraft administration fee is applied when your account goes overdrawn without a pre-arranged facility or when it exceeds a pre arranged facility

 

 

Is this a good get out for them???

No, it's not the fact they charge that we argue with. It's the fact that the charges they impose are totally disproportionate to what it actually costs them.

 

Ignore their t & c's. They are irrelevant.

Thanks maddy,

 

But if they are now 'fees' for a service, they are not penalty charges. Does this make a difference? as in Kev's case against LLoyds?

All the banks are changing their T&C's to relflect the new 'fees' regime. I think that they may get away with this for the latest charges, but this would not apply to earlier charges.

To prove this, I imagine we would need older T&C's, but if the bank won't give them out, how do we fight them?

Halifax, I understand are now sending out letters refusing to make an offer etc.. and turning down the claim point blank.

 

However, in the letter it says:

 

When you opened the account, you agreed to our terms & conditions which explained the charges would be applied if you did not keep to the terms of the account.

Is this not an admission that it is a breach of contract??

I have a letter from halifax where a freind is reclaiming. They have refused point blank to consider any repayment. In the letter however, it says:

 

Our terms and conditions explained that charges would be applied if you did not keep to the terms of the account.

 

Surely they cannot now say they are fees for a service??

Also:

 

If you continue to manage your account in this way, future charges will be applied to your account ( not fees). We know you do not want this and would like to work with you to help you avoid these charges altogether.

They've referred an old account of mine to a debt collection agency... after I challenged the charges.

I questioned the legality of the bank charges (which make up at least the outstanding balance) a number of years ago...

Yet they've sold the debt to a 3rd party under false pretences.

The fact that branch staff admitted to me that the charges were designed to stop certain actions, and that they retained my card, thus withdrawing active servicing of the account, means it will be entertaining if they seek to pursue the matter further... after all the onus is then on them to prove the debt.

I was trying to say, that does this statement now prove that they are not 'fees' and are indeed charges??

Our terms and conditions explained that charges would be applied if you did not keep to the terms of the account.

 

 

Would seem to state categorically that the reason for the charge is the breach of a term..

 

A term is part of the contract... so they're saying its breach of contract... as such the "liquidated damages" limit to the cost they can recover would seem applicable i.e its an illegal penalty clause...

 

That one is worth keeping and sharing... it could well serve to destroy the "standard" defence

Hi,

Just found this on Martins site. It was an E mail he received.

Sounds good to me, and seems to be working for a few.

Hope you can make use of it.

 

"I know someone who works at HBOS sorting out people's requests to re-claim bank charges. There are some tight FSA regulations about replying to people within so many days of receiving their letter. As they are so swamped with requests the only way HBOS can meet this deadline (and avoid the FSA's wrath) is to automatically decline EVERY request in the first instance. This has been practise for a couple of weeks now."

 

"I am reliably informed that when this happens all people have to do is ring the number on the top of the letter and politely ask for the case re-evaluating. This will be done almost without question and, while it means waiting another 4-8 weeks, it almost guarantees an offer of around 50% of the total amount. It's up to the customer to argue it from then on. The key apparently is to be polite and reasonable to the person on the phone (after all, it's not their fault personally that the banks make these charges)."

 

"A trick for anyone who has not yet written to claim is to ask for an answer to a specific question. They will almost certainly not get this answer when HBOS responds and will therefore know the deline letter has been automatically generated, rather than being a specific response having considered the case - as it will purport to be."
