    • Lastly, I will go to the site to get updated images, but from google earth, you can see from the pictures the entrance states it is for the hotel parking, which I follwed instructions and gave my details to the hotel. Where I think my car was parked (it was that long ago I'm not exactly sure) there are signs on the opposite wall, but it was 12.30am, pitch black and they could not be seen.
    • I was planning on collecting up other court cases they have lost, to refer to as part of my evidence, I'm not sure if this is worth doing or could just confuse matters? But there seem to be many where the judge has ruled against them because of confusing and not clearly displayed signage, trespass, as well as their charge being £100, which is more than the Bevis case said was reasonable.    A quick search found this article as one example KBT cornwall lose case article.pdf
    • OK, I will do now. I did look to black out certain things, but I was not sure what I should and should not redact and there was nothing on there that was personal enough for me to be concerned with being made public. So I am happy for all to view, but if you are kind enough to redact what is needed as per the forum rules, that would be amazing. Armtrak Defence documents_compressed.pdf
    • yes but have the landowner paid this years contract fee. no evidence they have in the ws. pop it back up now if you wish. the forum is quiet i'll redact it for you so we have the info.   dx  
    • Thank you all so much for taking the time to comment and help, I really do appreciate it.   Just to elaborate a bit more on the background, just because my lack of knowledge of the process might mean I've actually done things along the way that I did not know what they were and so hadn't mention it.    When they decided to go to court, I was offered mediation, which I took. I offered to pay the reduced rate, just to make it go away, but insisted it was not an admission of guilt, it was a goodwill gesture to save us all the effort of court. They refused and wanted £250.    A court date was set, but in Leeds, then a couple weeks later I received another letter saying it had been moved to London.   I was not aware I had any say in which court it would be held at, but I now understand i have good reason to request it is moved to a local one to me, which is also local to the offending place, I will call the court tomorrow and explain that. But so far I have only been told what is happening, I've not been given the choice for anything.   They seem to be going down the route of a contract breach, not trespass which is interesting. There is a document in the evidence which has the agreement between themselves which I assumed meant they can pursue me.    I am going to visit the site again shortly, at midnight the time of the offence and take pictures to build a case file of the route I took to enter the car park, how it is in the hotel grounds and no signs can be seen.    Am I right in saying, the fact they do not actually have any pictures of my car in the location they say it was in, just because all of the pictures they have were at 12/30am and it was pitch black, I am going to say my car was parked correctly in the hotel side, not on their land and it is then up to them to prove otherwise, which they are not able to do, because the burden of proof lies with the claimant I think?

I would suggest that you just write a new LBA stating something along the lines of "....having reconsidered my claim total, I am now submitting an amended Letter before action".

Then give them a further 14 days. A new prelim should be unnecessary, as this course should suffice as being seen to be reasonable enough.

Wait your 14 days, then submit your N1 with the new figure.

 

Usual proviso's about my laymans standing, so maybe get a couple of views if unsure.

 

i agree with PM if it helps any.

 

Its more or less what i did with my 1st abbey claim.

Hi everone,

I currently run a couple of small busnesses which i am going to claim back charges, However it is an old limited company i want to ask about.

The company was run by my wife & i as a limited company, in 2002 we were in financial troubles ( i had been in hospital for operation) and decided to close the business as we had no money to pay the creditors etc and no work coming in to keep the factory & staff etc.

We approached our bank HSBC and told manager about this and our intention to start again ( fortunatley we didnt owe the bank much) just the 2 of us with a couple of staff and our small retail unit, the bank happily agreed to set up a new business account in our partnership names and closed the LTD company bank account, We effectivley ceased trading as a limited company but were never wound up or put into receivership as there was no equity to take out of the business to pay any creditors, and those debts were just left ( We did pay off some of them out of our pocket over next couple years so we could still trade with them ).

Can we claim back charges relating to the Ltd company, as a lot of the charges helped to take us into that position.

Any help would be appreciated

Not a big cheque, I grant you (I think if it's a large amount they'll make you go further down the line to get your money), but don't be put off read as much as you can here before starting, this site has everything you need and a sense of humour!.

 

GOOD LUCK

Hi All,

 

We have been claiming on a Lloyds TSB business account and received an offer from SC&M to settle in full last Friday, woo-hoo! BUT, Lloyds TSB have made a mistake and as a result, they have withdrawn their offer for the time being, saying it should have been dealt with by another law firm as it is a business account, not personal. We have been told that our papers are being transferred to a company called 'Foot Anstey' who should receive them by Friday. We only noticed the problem when the offer letter said that our personal account would be credited. We didn't want to sign an acceptance letter with our personal account details on in case it jeopardised the claim we also have running regarding that account. I just wondered what you guys thought about this situation? Our Allocation Questionnaire and all previous correspondence clearly showed our business account number, we are mystified.

 

Many thanks in advance for your input,

 

Tina & Alan :)

In my opinion.

Your action is against lloyds..... not SC&m or Foot and Mouth or whoever. If lloyds fail to folow through with their promise,then just continue with your course of action, its their bureacratic problem , not yours !!

Hi All

 

I am just about to send a prelim letter to Barclays on our Ltd business account for £4351. I will start a thread in Barclays so you can all follow.

 

Has anyone claimed the compound interest (29.5%) on a business account ??? The compound interest on my claim would be £1400.

 

Regards

Foot and Mouth I can't stop laughing.

 

I have been paid by HSBC for a closed business account. company not wound up voluntary cesation. Awaiting offer from Natwest Bus. Acc. on similar action. HSBC only for £240.00 but it's the principle that counts. Natwest have only declared they are looking into it and I'm/was just about to issue Court proceedings, when only yetserday I got two offers on personal NW Acc.'s out of the blue so I'm giving them a day or so grace to make me an offer on the Business Acc. it's (All have passed LBA stage).

 

SO.... Claim away. by teh way HSBC sent personal cheque to me as director.

 

Who knows!!!!

Of course they are stalling.

You have given them fair warning.

Proceed to Court claim stage.

Personally, I think N1 filed at a court is better than MCOL, as it allows for more details on your POC, so use that if you can ?

This gives you a comparison of the two methods, either using online (MCOL) or using a claim form at a court (N1).

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/helpful-external-links/919-moneyclaim-hardcopy-claim-compared.html

 

The templates you need are here.

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/bank-templates-library/

 

Better still, you can get a pack that gives you all the forms you need on CD to print out yourself.

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/announcement.php?f=39&a=26

 

This is also a very good book to get, it tells you all you need to know, and gives you step by step instructions.

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/announcement.php?f=39&a=35

 

You could also visit your local court and pick up an N1 form to fill in.

They are very friendly, and will tell you what you need and give you the document to fill in (it's only a double sided document)

 

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/helpful-external-links/13-courts-service-information-links.html

 

 

 

Have you read the Frequently asked questions and step by step guide?

IF NOT, THEN DO !!!!!!!

 

good luck

Hi

I'm claiming on a Lloyds business account. (I'm self employed and Lloyds told me a few years ago I'd need a business account) I have been quoting the UCTA 1977 which they have now pointed out to me does not apply. I am at the stage of placing a claim through court, does it matter that I've used the wrong quotes? Also does anyone know if Lloyds tend to close business accounts once settled. I've opened a parachute account but I can't get a cheque book due to my poor credit rating. I sometimes have no choice but to use cheques so this will make things awkward for me.

Any help will be appreciated.

Hi Dorisfluffy. The banks tell you that you need a business account but that is because they can get away with charging more on a business account. If you have probs opening business account with another bank, you could use a personal account to send cheques. the banks dont like it ( they miss charging you business rate ) and eventually they may recommend you open a business account ( it will depend on how many cheques you send as to whether they get suspicious about it) as well as running personal account, even then you could always then change personal account to another bank until they do same.

One other thing you can do is to get the bank account details of the people you need to pay and pay cash/cheque straight into their bank account :-) (usually free if done at the same bank) just means a trip out.

I'd be interested to find out which fresh faced solicitor at lloyds co thinks you cant' use UCTA 1977?

Nowhere in the act does it specifically mention it applies to consumer law only. They are talking out of their butts. Ask them to quantify this statement, and relay the passages that state it does not apply to business'..... I think you'll recieve back a blank piece of paper !!

Call their bluff.

Did you sign a new contract when the account number changed?

You might find that the terms and conditions changed possibly?

In any case, myself, to be on the safe side, and to not give them any scope to contest, I would submit claims for each account number.

Remember, it is charges aginst an account that you are claiming, not charges against a person or company.
