    • I'm afraid this is completely out of my experience but I seem to recollect that a publican has a right to bar whosoever they please from their pub and I suppose that the only grounds for challenging that might be that the ban had been applied in a discriminatory way. On the basis of what you say here, none of it seems to have been discriminatory – and even the rather unkind refusal to let you go to the loo – does not appear to have been motivated by any intent to discriminate – simply to prevent somebody who was banned from entering the premises. It wouldn't surprise me if they were entitled to do so. The fact that the public and then allow you to use the loo seems to me – not to have been prompted by kindness – but rather to avoid scandal. If you have bought a small claim then as long as you litigate reasonably, the small claims rules relating to costs apply and it is unlikely that a judge would be moved to apply discretion to waive those rules. Maybe it would be a good idea if you put up the claim form here in PDF format – and also a defence. I would also be interested to see a PDF copy of the solicitor's letter – which on the basis of what you say may well be abusive and that they are threatening you with costs when they know full well that in the usual run of things, costs would not apply in the circumstances. However, you say that you have sued him in the Small Claims Court – but has actually been allocated to the small claims track? What precisely have you relied upon as your cause of action – and does that cause action fall within the small claims rules? Also, how much have you claimed for – and in compensation for what kind of damage? You would most normally have to demonstrate some actual incalculable loss – calculable in money terms – in order to bring an action.
    • Success! I couldn't find any evidence of any parking restrictions so emailed Starbucks direct.   In the email mentioned details as recommended above.   They then sent the query onto EuroGarages who run the site. They got in contact with me and asked to send a copy of the notice. They have just confirmed:   All our sites are operated with a parking system which helps control issues such as people leaving vehicles for prolonged times or camping out in the car park. Unfortunately, this ends up affecting genuine paying customers like yourself which is why we have a system in place in each store.   For future visits, if you are going to stay over the time limit which is displayed in the car park, just let our staff on site know and they can note your car registration down. This way you avoid any parking fines.   I have appealed the fine on your behalf and managed to successfully get it cancelled. If there is anything else I can help with please let me know.     So thank you for everyone's help with this, much appreciated.

Hi & Welcome!:)

OK you need to start up your own thread, and ask any questions in there.

You should receive a copy of their defence and you may get an Allocation Questionnaire to fill in, come back and tell us if you get one.

Keep reading round as much as you can and have a read of these links:

Hi

I've sent my first letter requesting 6 yrs worth of statements and havnt received a reply within 40 days, (the letter was recorded delivery and included a £10 postal order - which I think could have been a mistake, as I imagine they may simply say they havnt received the letter).

 

I'm just wondering what to do next, if I want to claim for >6yrs should I hold out for a court ruling?

 

Any help much appreciated

Go to here:

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/

 

Find the name of the Bank you are acting against.

Click on it (the name of the Bank in Bold Blue)

You will then on that page find a label saying "Forum Tools" (just under the list of page numbers).

Click on it, and it will show you some options.

Firstly, it's a good idea to subscribe to the Forum ,as then you'll recieve updates about people in similar situatioins against the same Bank. So click on Subscribe. It will ask how often you want updates (Personally I like Daily).

Once Subscibed to the Forum it will redirect you back.

Hit the same button and choose "Start new thread"

Give your Thread a title eg: cyprusgirl v whatever bank

(choose how often you want updates of anyone posting responses in your thread)

 

Then your up and running !:)

 

Whilst your there, you might want to take some time to have a look at some of the threads by people taking action against your same Bank, very helpful. Remember any threads you want to follow, you can either choose the thread tools button and choose subscribe to thread, or whenever you make a post in that thread it will automatically subscribe you to that thread.

On the main page I've posted for you above, you'll also find lots of highlighted "stickies", which have lots of very informative stuff in them too.

BankFodder your post regarding Lloyds' standard defense makes interesting reading, but if it comes to court (or at least in the build up to court proceedings) is it likely that we will need to argue that point? Or is it simply the case that eventually some poor person will be picked on and they will have to go head to head properly? I am happy to ignore the standard responses but at some point i assume I may have to 'prove' that these charges are penalties, so does anyone know of a formally constructed legal argument ready for this scenario? Or are these implications from OFT etc enough? Sorry to be a little vague but its late and i never went to many Law lectures :(

Its highly unlikely that you'll have to argue this in court - Lloyds have had well over 300 claims brought against them in the last year - and guess what? they've paid out every one (eventually!). Having said that, they are holding out later and later, probably in the hope that claimants will trip up in the final stages - this is why you need to be fully prepared.

 

As for legal arguement, see the witness statement in this thread - http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/lloyds-bank/82148-got-court-date-important.html

You should still endevour to understand the issues for yourself though.

Hiya everyone:) . Am new to this forum and have just drafted our letter to LTSB. We only joined them in in January 2002 so we are under the 6 year rule and as I an organised freak, I happen to have all our statements with the exception of a few here and there. Can anybody answer if people who have claimed charges back against LTSB have been threatened with account closure and do all claims against LTSB have to go to court? Or has anyone got their fees returned without going to court as with other banks? :rolleyes:

Hi & Welcome!:)

Lloyds don't usually close accounts, but have a parachute account ready just in case. They very rarely pay up before a Court claim has been filed. They tend to drag things out as long as possible.

Start up a new thread of your own and if you have any further questions you can ask them on there.

Good luck!

Hi BANKFODDER, I have just read your lloyds defences article and was fascinated as I have a letter from them using that strategy, unfortunately i think i only started going overdrawn after startig work, but what the hell, i have written back asking for all my bankstatements today. This article was exciting , informative, a huge boost in my confidence where reclaiming was concerned. I only hope thousands more people read it and feel the same way. I have one question though, and this came to after reading another thread about other banks using this strategy, is that when they refute your claim at the second letter do ypu think that they are likely tp respond quicker and more positively if you tell them that they are concealing? as well as going to small claims.?

Hi MUMof4, sorry I am not bankfodder but just read your post:: I honestly think the only way the banks will respond any quicker is if the courts where to fine the banks the total cost of each and every hearing for each case they had no intention of defending. Each case must cost thousands of pounds in tax payers money which could be put to much better use. it's a diabolical waste of public funds. Which needs to be addressed. Why won't the Judger's do this do the banks have some sort of hold over them. There must be some reason

[...] I honestly think the only way the banks will respond any quicker is if the courts where to fine the banks the total cost of each and every hearing for each case they had no intention of defending. [...]

 

This is called "wasted costs", and the courts can issue a "wasted costs order" in certain circumstances. IANAL but I get the suspicion that being on the small claims track may rule out such an order (ICBW). In general, though, they are generally awarded against solicitors who have continued with an action contrary to the best interests of their clients. It could be argued that the banks' solicitors are well aware that they can only win by default (i.e. if you fail to turn up to the hearing), and therefore they are wasting both their clients' and the courts' time and money.

There is NO time limit at all in cases of concealment or mistake.

You can claim back to as far as you can prove charges were taken, by citing sec 32 of Limitations act. ie; as far back as you have or can obtain statements.

You do however only have 6 years from the discovery of the concealment or mistake in which to lodge a claim ie 2012 if take OFT report in MaY 06 as the date that you claim you became aware of the concealment.

This of course applies to English law. I know nothing of Scottish law other than it is slightly different.

Hi Meagain, Gary, PM and anyone else who wants to contribute for that matter.

 

Meagain, after being awarded judgment for none compliance against Lloyd's, which demonstrates I have done everything in my power to get my bank statements post and pre 6 yrs. I have done what you suggested. in relation to estimating my chargers. I have took the balance of the last 5 yr chargers £6,800 and divided them by 5 to get an annual figure of £1,360 I have times this by 20 yrs, (although I have been with the bank for near on 30) so as to be totally sure. this figure comes to £27,200 as a estimated cost of unlawful chargers on our joint account only over the past 25 years, 20yrs -the 5yrs which I am claiming in court. So in view of doing everything i can to get my SAR information and the bank not complying do you think i could possibly stand any chance of winning against the bank for this estimation of costs of unlawful chargers.

 

Bearing in mind the banks have informed me in a letter that they have not retained any information on our joint account post 6 yrs. So even if the judge orders them to comply if they have not got them as they say they will be unable to comply with the court. If they do have them great I can go for the whole 25 yrs, 30yrs-5yrs I am claiming which will bring the unlawful chargers debit from our account even higher. But if as they say they do not have them how would they be able to defend the case, they could not say the chargers where not debited as they will have no information to prove whether they where or not. I on the other had have 5 yrs of statement's proving the average annual chargers that have been unlawfully debited.

 

Would anyone else consider this course of action if they where in my shoes. I would be worried I could get hit with a whole of related costs if I lost as the case would need to be heard in the multi tract.

 

Also I have not added interest to the figure of £27, 200. so the end amount would be a huge amount, not got as far as working that one out, if any one would like to try using CI please feel welcome, I am not that good at maths.

 

Would your all mind giving me your honest opinion of what you would do in my position. as I am seriously considering this action if I do not get my statements from the bank, even if the courts have demanded there return. if the have destoyed them then theres nothing a court can do to get them back

 

I look forward with interest to your honest replies so please give me some.

 

thanks
