    • So which are you disputing there and why   Is it   A mandatory smartphone app would be a significant measure, both legally and culturally,”   or   “Our view is that there would need to be a clear and detailed legal basis for a mandatory system, set out in specific legislation.”       or are you actually claiming that it wouldn't be made compulsory despite the changes in law I referred, and handcock quite clearly saying that optional is only if enough people voluntarily install it and that 'mandatory' is an option already available to them and which they will use?       or are you just spouting fog to try to confuse the facts?  
    • I think this was more to reduce the footfall.  Local stores were only allowing 10 people in at a time.. by allowing only single shoppers, they kept their queues down. 
    • Hello people, My case is almost similar to others here who have been stung by VCS and I am hoping to get help regarding the current situation I am in.   In the middle of Februrary this year I happened to drop off my mother-in-law at three in the morning at East Midlands Airport. I am aware of no stoppage signs around that area because I also happen to work in the same industrial estate which is also owned by East midlands airport but a little further from the airport.   So the organisation I work for has an office in the same industrial estate and they have their own parking but obviously at 3 o'clock in the morning it wasn't very convenient to park next to the office and then walk about 2 km to the airport. Anyway I had made sure that I did not park on the double red lines as marked on almost all the roads in that area. I've pulled up away from the road and away from the double lines into a small piece of land which had no restrictions on it.   I had seen the spy car while parking up but I assumed that it would be safe because I am away from the road and I'm away from the double right lines into another plot but clearly that wasn't the case as per VCS. So I received a PCN asking me to pay hundred pounds which I appealed and I replied to them that I was not parked on the road or on the double lines but it was rejected by VCS . They started sending me letters of claim and the last letter now I received says letter before claim and I think they are hoping to take me to the County Court to claim £160 as well as the court fees which is £25 if I do not respond to them by 21st of June. I've also attached a letter with information redacted.   I'm hoping to get some advice on what should I do next because I do not really want to pay them £160 for something which I believe is a rip off practice by VCS and others like it. I had taken plenty of pictures when I pulled up that morning which show the car is parked away from the road and away from the double red lines which I had sent to BCS but they did not entertain.   VCS EMA - Nimbus.pdf

Hello guys,

i have been following the strandard procedure in claiming unlawfull charges and fees and after SAR, Prelim and LBA ,i finaly received a first letter from halifax offering me a full refund of fees and charges including interest.

Now, i still do not know what to do as i included contractual interest in my claim.

As per claim :

Unlawful charges clearly identifiable:

Solo account:£238.68

Visa Current account: £255.62

Contractual at 29.8% APR:

Solo account £248.96

Visa Current account £211.00

SAR £10

Stationary fees £3.36

TOTAL Penalty fee + interest = £ 967.62

The offer from Halifax is only for £238.68+ £255.62

i am going to read through all successeful Halifax claims to get an idea how many cases included contractual had been won... I also understand that there is always a risk that judge can throw my claim and i could get nothing.....

Can senior memebers of CAG please give some advise? It would be highly appreciated

Kind regards,

Maria

Where is the 29.8% rate come from?

 

The rate came from Halifax customer services assistant that told me speccificly how much is the unathorised ovedraft rate on my account.

 

 

I did phone today and spoke to 2 different assistants, that kindly told me that the max they could give me is £550( offer was for £495)...

Second very pleasant assistant said that they just do not pay any interest before the court claim....and kindly advised me to file the claim and than they will pay the interest...

 

Now, here is me sitting and thinking do i want more money and risk that judge will throw my claim with contractual interest or just accept what they owe me?:))))))

 

it's a bit hard to find a successeful thread with contractual...will keep looking...

 

If anyone has any ideas...please let me know:))

 

 

 

Kind regards...

Hi itsme. I don't know of any Halifax people getting CI, but if you go to the "search" button which is underneath the forum detail. Click on it and type "contractual Interest" it should pull up some threads of people that have claimed it.

Well I'm going for it with my claims against Halifax (early days still), but it's upto you.

 

Also, FWIW, the only unauth'd o/d rate I can find on their site is 28.8% AER. Might be worth checking out, please please advise me if I'm wrong (so that I can charge them even more!)

Guest bong

you've asked for my advice itsme but I can't really advise you what to do because it's your claim and you have to feel comfortable with what you are taking on.

 

I've noticed that they haven't offered to refund your SAR fee so they haven't made a full offer regardless of the CI claim. If you're going to make a court claim you must include CI though, as to drop that element now and only claim statutory interest would mean that you are moving the goal posts which could lead to problems in my opinion.

 

all the best:)

I agree, if you drop the CI, then the bank may argue that they have offered to settle in full and you declined their offer.

You can combine claims aslong as they are not business claims or exceed £5000, or credit cards.

 

So from reading your thread, you should be fine to combine.

Well, you're about 2 weeks ahead of me, keep me posted!

 

I'm lodging mine as 2 claims - one for credit card charges and 1 for charges on 2 bank accounts. Although thinking about it, I might just do it as one claim. Undecided yet.

I found it on the Dave's thread and thought it's a great idea...As per his letter:

 

I have decided to add interest at 8% to compensate me for lack of the use of those funds during the period that you had wrongly taken them. I realise that you will say that your charges are fair and within the OFT guidelines.

 

The OFT have said that they won’t investigate charges BELOW this level, not that the charges were lawful and right; but if you say they are I WILL ask you to prove this in open court!

 

If I do have to take this to court I may choose to add contractual interest in the spirit of what’s good enough for you is good enough for me! This will obviously affect the total claim significantly.

 

 

I had changed it to suit my claim....but decided to post the original..as the idea it's not mine:))))))

 

 

What do u think?

 

 

regards,

 

Maria

A bit risky IMHO.

 

Strictly speaking, I'd not advise changing what you're wanting part way through a claim.

 

I guess if you're been aksing for 8% in your prelim and LBA then you'd have nothing much to lose by adding contractual to your claim. Though if it was me, I'd do the same throughout (i.e claim no interest in prelim/LBA, then ask for 8% when filing at court, OR 8% in Prelim, LBA, and at court, OR contractual in prelim, LBA and either contractual or 8% at court).

 

 

 

It's your call.

I did give it a good thought...

I am talking about Credit Card claim....

The current account i had started with contractual from Prelim...

So ..not changing anything...

Contractual interest is risky as well....will see what they come up with....

 

I do agree with you...it's not usual to do so...thats why i asked for it in the CC Prelim....

Just an update, I had received a letter from halifax credit. They are not prepared to refund me anything at all. I will send a CCA request.

 

Question is: did anybody claim through court fees for time spent on the preparation, postage etc. I am claiming contractual as well.

 

 

 

Thank you.
