Col123.

I would just sit back and wait to be honest.

 

I doubt they will reply to your letter and you will have to go down the MCOL route. But based on everyone elses experience it will not go to court.

 

It is a bit like cat n mouse (tom N Jerry),

you are int he right lace. Loads of people will be very supportive and give you lots of advice along the way.

Going to court is very unlikely.

I know its a pain having to wait but stick witht he timetable and follow the instructiosn to the letter and soon enough you will have your money.

Make sure you open another bank account in case they close this one.

I advise Natwest Step account but there are loads out there to be honest

HiI had the same problem and did finish up taking A&L to court. There is some excellent information on the Money Expert web site and you can use the quotes on there when you submit your claim on Money Claim on Line.Two days prior to the cut off date for a response from A & L to the court they sent me a cheque for the full amount I had claimed, including of course the charges made by the Court. Yes, I would recommend lots of back gorund from the Money Expert site, The Independent and Which. The long and short of all this is thatthese charges are illegal

Hi all just a quick update i received a letter this morning from A&L basically it states....

 

thanks for contacting us regards fees on your account, having reviewed the circumstances surrounding your complaint again i can confirm that the fees have been raised in accordance with the charging policy within the terms and conditions,

Fees are published in our marketing literiture for current accounts we also provide copies of terms and conditions of the account when it is opened.Any changes or amendments to the terms and conditions are notified by post,through statement inserts and on our website,which complies with the banking code of practice.we feel our fees are resonable and competitive and are clearly shown within literature on our website as well as being detailed on monthly statements,

in veiw of the above i regret to inform you that our original dicision must stand.

 

it goes on to say i can refer my complaint to financial ombudsman and they have given me a complaints leaflet.

 

has anyone else had this letter,is it a standard fob off?

 

Ill copy the whole letter out if anyone needs to see the full version,

 

they are making out like this is the second letter i have had and its not its the ONLY letter ive had from them,any advice would be much appreciated,kind regards col x:confused:

this a standard letter they send out - just make sure you stick to timetable on FAQ allow 14 days as per your letter and then proceed.

 

 

 

Some people get no letters at all before filing claim - i have had two.

 

I think the general advice appears just keep reading the site to makesure you are ready for each stage- including the threads in the successes it will cheer you up.

 

 

I m just about to do LBA

 

best of luck

Hi Col,

 

Pretty much in same situation as you! Trying to claim around £6,800. I've sent them the letter requesting repayment of charges and got back a big 'no chance' from them! Preparing to send LBA letter. My worry is the court action. I'm from Scotland and here we can only claim £750 a time from small claims court. Many of the courts are now refusing to accept multiple claims. Been advised to take my complaint to FOS but don't know how to go about that or how long it will take?? Know for certain next letter I receive from A&L will be another 'no chance'!!! x

have you started own thread on alliance and leicester?

 

I know there is a special section on claiming in scotland - try putting in as a search if you cant find it -and read lots of threads even from different banks - try all sections under fAQ

cheers jansus - going to start my own thread on the claiming in scotland section cos no one's mentioned anything about claiming against A&L in Scotland. Been reading through it and it's a lot more hassle than claiming in England! Going to persevere though cos too much money to lose. Good luck!
