After reading a reply i decided to make my own thread.

 

This is where i am up to now....

 

I sent a letter on 7th March which was a template letter from the website, i enclosed a cheque for £10 for the cost of the statements. I still have not heard anything yet the 40th day is 15th April. But i recall this letter just went first class, not recorded, im not sure if i should send the letter out again with a copy of the other letter attached or just wait till the 40 days are up and try again, does anyone have any advice.

 

Cheers

Hi Michelle,

 

Why not give them a call and see if they've recieved the request. We did and it spurred them on to sending the statements out on time.

 

Good luck with your claim

 

Steve

Halifax - paid out without getting to court - £250 WON - no intention of going, stated too costly!!

Halifax no 2 account - paid out without a fight - (by mistake, £1650 - should have been £1200 - had to pay some back)

Hiya,

 

Once you dont recieve the statements within the 40 days, then send this. Letter 3...

Also a phone call can sometimes remind them, especially if they know you are prepared to go to court for them.

 

This seems to ba a reasonable number at the minute.

After 40 days of not hearing from The Halifax, i sent them another letter giving them 7 days notice to send me info. I received a letter from them yesterday within the 7 days, which i was suprised at, the letter is as follows..

After sending my letter to the Halifax on the 7th March i finally got a reply on Friday. I had to send them a reminder letter in the meantime as i had not heard from them after the 40 days. Then i got a letter saying they would reply in the 4 weeks and they did. I got a list of charges!! Is this right, can i ring and ask for statements or just accept them. Am i taking them that they are all just bank charges and nothing else, and can i add interest on to these amounts.

 

I was very dissapointed with a list, how do i know that they have addedd all the charges.

 

Any help would be great.

 

Thanks :confused:

You are entitled to receive that statements that you originally requested-you could use the list of charges that they have sent but my question is how do you know that what they have sent is correct?

 

I would go back an demand that they send the statements to you-mention the fact that they could be held in breach of the Data Protection Act if they not comply.

I sent a letter to the Halifax over 14 days ago asking the my charges with a list of the charges i want paying back.

 

They have not replied after asking them to reply, so now i have a letter that i am going to send today, saying if they do not pay up or respond in 14 days then i will start court proceedings, if they say right go on then what do i do, how do you go about getting a court date, it reallty scares me, i hope they don't go that far. I would call them but i am not a very confident person and would worry that i would not sell my case very well.

 

Any help would be great

 

Thanks

Just follow the giude lines on here. You will be fine.

Send your Lba letter, you will prob get a letter saying no go away, standard letter. Ignore it.

 

Then in 14 days you will be ready for court. When that happens you will get all the help you need. Dont worry. :D

I got a letter this morning after months of writing letters and waiting.

 

The last letter i sent was asking for the amount and giving them 14 days as the letter i sent before that asking for the money they ignored it. (again!)

 

What is the next step, please advise me i don't have time to look for the answers on all other emails at the moment.

 

All help would be fantastic

 

Thanks

Hi

I'm presently spending hours trying to find the same answer, but have not found it yet. I've had a similar letter.

I'll let you know what I find.

Good luck!;)

Any advice given by me is based solely on my experience in claiming, my experience in CAG or my opinion. I have no legal background. I want to encourage others to reclaim what is theirs.

 

Got a DCA breaking OFT guidance. Complain to the OFT about the DCA. Help put an end to these practices-

Hi Michelle

 

Halifax did the same to me too, with 2 separate accounts that I have with them. Reading the other posts, I believe this is Halifax's new tactic.

 

I have filed a summary cause against them for 1 account and for the closed account I had with them I have forwarded it onto the Finacial Ombudsman to deal with. I would suggest that you start court proceedings or send it to FOS.

 

Hope this helps

Hello again

Its in templates- particulars of claim. Sorry but I do not know how to do those linky type of things which would have been quite handy in this situation. I am going to practise it sometime.

Good luck

Thanks for the reply. I am feeling really daft about all this at the moment but i have to make sure that i get it right.

 

I fill all the info in on the N1 form?

 

Where is says value - i am just claiming charges do i delete where it says overdraft etc..?

 

In particulars of claim - do i just fill in where it is red and delete other words as appropriate.

 

I live in Leeds so do i just put Leeds - how do i know which court to send it to

 

I keep a copy, send one to the cour and i sent one to the Halifax is this right?

 

At the top of the page i am filling in it says In the..... and on the sheet i printed out for help filling it in it said At the......... is this the same thing. Sorry to sound so thick but i want to get it sent off this week.

 

i also need to send a cheque for £120 as i am cliaming £1340, will they cash this??

 

Thanks, any help would be great....:-|
