Well I just posted off my Preliminary letter or £1870.(fees no interest)

 

I was a bit confused though re interest - Reading seems to indicate you don't claim the interest on his letter , but should I have shown it on the spreadsheet I sent detailing charges? I have worked the figure of 8% but didn't put it on the paperwork.

Will I lose this?

No, so what you've done is correct.

Thanks very much. Ive read so much about all different types of interest this last few days.

I'll just take my chances . P'raps it will go to court so I can add on the 8% . Whichever way it goes, its money gained 'cos I nver thought I'd have the chance to get it back anyway

I know that's defeatist :o

Ros, Come to take a peek at your thread.

Regards interest. Take a look at this thread.

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/general/18313-why-no-one-claiming.html

 

This explains about Contractual interest, the reasonings, the amounts, and how to do it.

Basically, the Court claim procedures state that the Statutory 8% added at the court claim stage.... "is there to claim as an alternative, if there is no other rate stated in your contract" (something to that effect, but maybe not in exact words) .

We all do have contracts, that state interest rates for borrowing. Now, as contracts by UK law have to be mutual (ie, cannot favour one party unfairly over the other) we can also charge that same rate to them from the outset, and it would be awarded regardless of whether it goes before a judge or not.

In order to do this, you enter your charges in the spreadsheet titled "compounded contractual Interest", and enter the overdraft interest rate at either the authorised or unauthorised the bank charged you, (read the contractual interest thread to decide which). This then calculates the amount, and adds it onto your claim.

You then enter this sheet with your claim, with this amount IN FULL, from the outset (with it broken down into charges and interest, and the reasons why you are charging that rate, which the thread above will provide you with). This is the amount you are asking for, and it is a LOT more than the statutory 8%.

It is upto a judge in court to decide if this is actually allowed in the basis of law and correct, but when you fill in your actual court claim papers, you can put in your particulars, that he/she consider some of the options in the alternative if he/she thinks your initial claim is unallowed or incorrect.

Remember this is only decided by a judge, in court, not by the bank. And as no claims have ever actually gone to court yet, then the chances are you will get the full amount you ask for (but do not presume that it would not go before a judge, there is still a chance. So you do have to be prepared with all your reasonings and arguments, which you can get on this site).

So....In short. In you want to go down this route, Do all your calculations again with the contractual interest, and submit a new prelim. It is not too late.

If you do change your claim in this way, you do not claim or get the 8% statutory on top as well, remember, (referring my above) this is awarded as an alternative to the 8% !!

sorry - pressed wrong button. I have read so much I have confused myself even more.

I have been advised to claim 17.09% which is the current rate. I m going to attempt to try this on Vampiress easiest spreadsheet for contractual interest (I'm new to these 'virgin' on computer stuff) .

wish me luck

Hi

 

I finally sorted out amount of charges past 6 yrs (£1870).

 

However I didn't understand difference between statutory and contractual interest so sent off my prliminary lttr 3 days ago(7/1/07) with no amount for int.

 

The penny has now dropped and the extra amount of contr. int due is around £1400 .

 

Should I wite withdrawing the 1st claim and sending a fresh one, or should I amend the original one?

 

Thanks

Hi there

Well I think read everything I should have and have explored forums (althouh this is all new to me) and I've just taken the plunge andl I've just sent off my prelim letter for £3270 which included contractual interest at 17.08%.

I decided not to go for the unauthorised O/D rate which is far higher.

 

Has anyone claimed the higher rate and won yet?

 

I have still got another claim to do with Baclays which isn't quite so much, aroud £1200 basic charges without interest. I'm not sure how to tackle that.

I'm hoping you'll be able to guide me through the next stages

 

Thanks

 

Ros

Seems we are at the same stage. I received a 'no can do' letter the other day, very quickly.

I wasn't sure if I can send LBA now, or should I wait 14 days?

 

Have you claimed contractual interest? I read so much stuff on it and decided to try. I only did standard rate (17%) and not higher one.

Took my claim up to £3270.:D

 

I'm also starting a Barclays Claim - sending off my prelim tommorow.:)

Hi Ros

i took advise from the money saving expert forums, no one replied to my posts on here either! And I posted it a few days after, although i will wait the full 7 days I gave them in my LBA before i start my MCOL. I have not included any interest on my correspondence yet, that would take it to nearly £7000, but i will include it in my court claim, but i believe I may have to slpit it due to the ammount being on £5000

I think if you are only going to use the S69 8% rate thats OK.

But I used contractual interest at 17%. I read that if you are doing that it shuld be on you initial prelim letter

everything I have ever read says do NOT enter into phone cpntact as you have no proof of what gets said. Personally I would write back or even fax them for speed to say you are keeping a record of all communication and would prefer to keep it all in writing.

You can claim s69 interest in the alternative:

 

Defendant charges interest to the Claimant, via the Account, at its published “unarranged overdraft rate” of XX.XX%. The Defendant claims that it is entitled to charge this rate, by virtue of the Terms & Conditions.

 

 

The unarranged overdraft rate is charged to the Claimant, via the Account, when the Claimant draws money from the Account whilst she has not obtained permission from the Defendant for exceeding any overdraft limit that she has. It is in effect, a rate that the Defendant charges the Claimant when she draws funds from the Defendant when she has no right for doing so.

 

Using, that reasoning and maintaining the principal of equity, mutuality and reciprocity between the parties, the Claimant contends that she is entitled to an equal rate of interest in this case. The Claimant notes in particular that the Defendant erred in law, had no legal right to levy the charges to the Account and refused to refund the Charges when asked to do so by the Claimant.

 

 

If the Terms and Conditions form part of contract between the parties hereto then there is an implied and/or imposed term of contract that the Defendant must pay the Claimant at the same rate of interest which it reserves for itself, in similar circumstances. If no express contract exists between the parties hereto then the Claimant contends that an implied and/or imposed contract exists between the parties hereto relating solely to the Claimant’s right to charge interest to the Defendant at the rate which it reserves for itself in relation to similar circumstances.

 

 

In the alternative,should this court not find that aforesaid implied and or imposed contractual term does exist, Claimant claims interest pursuant to s69 County Courts Act. Interest, in that case, up until xx/xx/xx amounts to £XXX, as detailed in Schedule B attached hereto. Interest per day thereafter, or part thereof, is £0.XX

    • if you go to the dwp website there is an online SAR you can fill in to get all the details.   here is your old thread mentioned above  
    • Thanks for the advice, I will call the council Tuesday morning and see what they say, and then send the I/E form.   Something doesn't sit right with me on the whole thing.    I found an email I had sent to my MP early 2008 detailing the problems we were having with tax credits, and I go into great detail of our situation and  employment history.   Work was sporadical and I am pretty sure we were on benefits throughout one of those whole periods (I even had a post on here about the bank charges problem)   In fact most of those time periods mentioned in post 4 there was little work. Worst 2 years of our lives! I dont know how to find records of benefits though for that long ago.
    • I won a prize in a Raffle operated by an organisation holding an event at a local venue. The prizes were displayed on video screens in the venue and on a printed list by the person selling the tickets.  The prize I won was stated as "4 (four) weekend VIP tickets to Birmingham Pride"   - I did not open the envelope until the following day - it contained 3 (three) vouchers for weekend "Premium" tickets to Birmingham Pride (Premium being a lower priced ticket than VIP).   A friend who was at the event with me had the phone number of one of the organisers - there being no other obvious way to contact them - the person confirmed the prize was stated as 4 tickets, it was supposed to have been changed to 3, but that it had not been done.   I considered that this was suspicious, I can accept it might not have been possible to change the wording on the video screens, but the person selling the tickets could have clarified this verbally, and could have altered the "4" on the printed sheet to show "3".    As "compensation" I was offered free entry to their next event. That would be £7 per person (if they intended to include anyone else I was attending with) which in no way equates in financial or entertainment value of the Pride event, which has tickets priced £88.00, for two days of live acts including Marc Almond, Faithless and Human League.   I would like to know if the offer of prizes as originally stated and the exchange of money for entry in the raffle constitutes an intent to create legal relations - and as such, that I am entitled to 4 (four) VIP tickets (not Premium) and nothing else other than a cash alternative of equal value to the expected prize.   Incidentally, the vouchers state to send an email to an email address at birminghampride.com – which I did several weeks ago, but have not received any response.   I assume even if the Pride organisers fail to respond, the raffle organiser is still liable.
    • you realise Gick its very easy to make win 10 look like win 7.? I wouldn't move from 7 because I do lots of RS232 and other basic comms stuff with vintage gear and past 7 it would not longer do what I want.   win10 put everything back and works better than 7  ive even got it on a very old 1gb ram vio pc  if you want help pm me and I can sort things for you. 
  • Our picks

    • 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.
