hi this is my first post-hope it makes sense. my partners employer has in error sent his bacs salary to my old bank account (not active for past 10 months) and refuse to send it back although the employer has tried to reclaim. the trouble is that i owe them money on an overdraft that i have agreed to pay monthly, but don't use that account. they say they can keep the money cos it is owing!! but its not my money it belong to my partner.. his employer says it is not their problem (although it is their mistake for not deleting the previous account off their system). so now we have no money to pay the bills this month and don't know what is right and what is wrong - anyone got any ideas??? please

Hi Rose.

 

If it's your partners emlployers error then it is up to them to sort it out. get you partner to contact citizen's advice and drop a line to the OFT

if the money is paid in error on behalf of someone else ie not the account holder, then the money is recoverable i believe.

 

however, that could take time.

 

You OH needs to go the bank with a letter from his employer that the money was paid into the wrong account by mistake and he wants it there and then. whether they give it to him or not is difficult to say.

 

You say partner, are you married? It would be good if you had different surnames for obvious reasons, even better if they don't know you and he/she are partners.

 

they cannot offset money that does belong to you and the fact its been paid into the account by mistake doesn't mean they can keep it.

just a thought but i presume the account is in your name only? And do you have a joint account with them too?

 

If you do have a joint acc it might be worth checking the terms and conditions to see what it says about offsetting money to other accounts.

 

Edit i still think that the money is his and having been paid into the account by mistake should be returned to him. if they get nasty tell them you will take them to court and seek costs and damages if they don't return the money.

 

i should add that this should if possible be done by him not you.

Good luck,

 

if they dont give you the money on Tuesday, then i recommend that you write to them holding them responsilbe for any costs, losses or damages you incur as a result of their failure to return the mony.

 

Inform them that they have failed to refund money paid under a mistake to which they and you are not entitled to. It is best if your partner does this because its his money, not yours if that makes sense.

 

If you incur any charges as a result of this issue then i would appraoch them with a view to reclaiming those costs.

 

DOnt worry if they refuse to repay the moeny then your partner must hold them responsible for any costs or losses you incur, it wont help put food on the table this wekend but it iwll make sure you get back anything you loose.
