And so we begin, bit of a newbie here so any help would be appreciated. the story so far - Requested statements for last 6yrs on 9/3, telephone yestereday to see if they had been sent, was told the had been printed and I should get them very soon. I know im getting ahead of myself but if no i mean when im successful can i ask for a cheque as FD had colsed my account down and can i ask for it in my sole name as the account was a joint account and i no longer have a joint account the other party is happy for that to happen

Hi gonnabeatu

 

Sounds like your statements are on their way. That's a blessing because some people have been waiting for many, many weeks. I received mine within a few days but other FD customers have waited varying times ranging from a week to a few weeks.

 

On the cheque issue. If your account is closed - when you get to the stage where they offer to settle you can stipulate that one of your conditions of acceptance is that you are paid by cheque. Other people have done that.

 

They may try and fob you off by saying they'll use the money to pay off any outstanding debits etc on your old account but you can ask for a cheque.

 

You might have a bit of a way to go before that though (hopefully not too long)

 

Good luck:)

Thanks for that, I'm just dying to get started i'm expecting the total amount to be around £4000, as ive already looked back through last 2yrs statements and total charges are £2000, so will see when statement arrive. If anyone could clarify situation on interest, what am i claiming to start with? is it the amount on my statements that say debit interest? sorry if thats a really silly question!!

Hi Indigoblue (have you changed your name since starting this thread by the way?)

 

In terms of interest it seems there are two options.

 

There are exceptions BUT - in general terms, based on threads and info I've read:

 

  1. You can either use the contractual interest spreadheet (look in templates section - sorry I can't work out how to create the link)

  2. Or - you can wait until you file a claim at court and then claim statutory (judicial) interest at 8%.

 

So the choice seems to be you first ask for all of your charges in full (without interest) or you claim you charges in full with contractual interest and see how the bank responds.

 

Others have claimed contractual interest and because the banks didn't go to court but settled before the hearing they've paid up (see BONG V HSBC; Madzai & Lucid versus Lloyds) including the contractual interest they've claimed.

 

Madzai & Lucid (In the Lloyds TSB section) have produced a nice spreadsheet to work out contractual interest on the charges but the Vampiress Spreadheet (in the templates ection) will work out the contractual interest you have been charged / applied on the charges the bank made.

 

It sounds complicated but isn't really.

 

Have a look at the threads on 'interest' and then make a choice.

 

Good luck

Can anyone help? Im aware that OFT will soon be making a ruling on bank charges, will this have an impact on claims? I am just a bit worried FD have taken over £2000 in charge in last 2yrs, not sure whether i should start claiming that back while waiting for the rest of the statements. i would hate to think i missed my chance any ideas please

Can anyone offer some advice whilst having a clear out tonight I have come across some FD statements which go back to 2000, total charges of around £500, ive already sent my prelim letter and need to send LBA tomorrow, can i add these charges on or do i need to resend prelim, in which case i might as well add contractual interest (now ive got my head round it) as it adds quite a lot to my claim, any thoughts?

 

Thanks :???:
