Hi Folks

Have read through a lot of the threads and guides. Now feel ready to take HBOS on for 2 claims (1 Halifax and 1 Bank of Scotland). Have sent the two S.A.R letters recorded delivery on Thursday so will keep this thread updated. Dont know how much I'm looking at but through statements I have its over £1K for both.

 

Will maybe have questions further on so thanks in advance guys

Hi, Beanie.

 

Best wishes with both your claims, BOS ignored everthing I sent them, including my court return date and calling date, got my money in full about two weeks later. Just remember to stick to your timetable, they will do everthing possible to stall and delay you.

 

Regards.

Thats good to know.. Picked up from a lot of the threads to ignore their timetables and stick to your own so thats exactly what i plan to do.

 

Sent the S.A.R off to The Mound in Edinburgh, is that the correct address for BOS?

Hi,

 

Yes, the Mound address is their Head Office, I sent everthing to my local branch, including court papers. It all seems to end up in the same place.

 

Regards.

Ok so really annoyed now !!!

 

I originally sent 2 SARS to BOS and Halifax back in Feb but as chq wasnt cashed and didnt send recorded at the time presumed them to have been "Lost in Transit" !!!! Received a letter today dated 26th April from a certain Paul Chablovski (i forget his actual surname but sounds like this) thanking me for the request and the order is being processed and sent out in due course.

 

The real bummer is that I sent the same 2 letters last week both recorded delivery and again both with chqs !!!! Have the first 2 letters just mysteriously reappeared to coincide with the last 2... Am i living in the twilight zone or something? anyone else experienced this???

Sent my S.A.R - (Subject Access Request) on 28.03.07 recorded delivery, had no response at all, cheque not been cashed, rang them loads of times, they keep saying that they have no trace of my S.A.R - (Subject Access Request) and have offered me a 'list of charges' instead of statements and me advised to stop the cheque!!!!! NO CHANCE, have sent letter of non compliance today. I think they are just swamped with requests, no doubt I will get a reply to my sar sometime in July!!!:-x

Can anyone let me know what to do here... basically letter received was dated 26th April but not received by me until the 11th May. Should I send the 2nd letter chasing the SAR now or wait until 40 days before referring to FOS?

 

Help please

Sanard - in the S.A.R - (Subject Access Request) you asked for data not statements. They may very well send you statements (which is after all what you want) but by asking for data you only have to pay £10. If you ask for statements you will have to pay £5 a sheet and be unable to claim this back. At this stage I use 'Proof of Posting' which is free but you get a receipt. If you look in templates library you will find 'non-compliance letters'. Use whichever one is applicable. It would be a good idea to start your own thread.

 

Beanie. Have they given you a date for when they hope to get data to you? I would suggest using 'Proof....' and non-compliance letter. I know it is very frustrating for you both but the banks must be so overloaded with all the claims now that they are having trouble getting data out. In the useful threads above our postings there was a contact address for getting ourselves noticed. Perhaps it would be worth sending letters there.

 

If you stop cheques can't Halifax charge you for this? Cheques are only good for 6 months as far as I am aware so if it is not presented within the time that should not be your concern. Sally

Thanks for the swift reply Sally, there was no date mentioned. Just said they were preparing the documention and will be sent out shortly.

 

Was thinking of 14 days from date received and then sending the non compliance letter, but something says to me they have 40 days to comply (is this correct?)

Yes, 40 days from when they received your SAR letter so you should allow 2 extra days. This is the longest wait. Once you have started sending prelim it nips along at a brisk pace - all things being equal that is........

Recieved statements this morning.. wow only took a week from receiving the letter.

 

Calculated £2676 with Halifax and £1374 with BOS. :(

 

Have looked through the threads and obviously need to send prelim and schedule of charges. Can someone tell me whether I need to detail each and every charge on the schedule? can i just send a copy of the statements back with the charges highlighted? Or should this be in spreadsheet format?

Spreadsheet format is far better.

 

Use the Simple S/S here:

See here for a visual guide:

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/barclays-bcard-woolwich-successes/7226-maisielou-barclays.html#post50088

 

When entering your charges, don’t delete anything first. Just overwrite the existing examples: type of charge, amount and date.

 

The days since and 8% will be calculated automatically

 

Save it (for use later at court), then delete/hide the last 2 columns (8% bits) and print out as your schedule of charges.

Hi Beanie,

 

Make sure you have double checked your statements for the charges as some may have been missed.

 

It would be easier in the long run to put all your charges onto a spreadsheet. Use one of them in the bank templates library to help you. One of the reasons for doing a schedule is that you need to have a few copies of it for sending off in the future. If you just used copies of your statements that would be a hell of a lot of paper being used each time(think of the trees. lol).

Thanks for the replies guys...

 

Have now downloaded the spreadsheet but question (again !!) my statements only state - Charges as notified and dont relate to why they there, is it ok to just put in as charges?

Ok so spreadsheet complete... had to print out at work (and have a few querying looks from other staff)

 

due to be sent recorded delivery 2morrow. Expect a standard bogoff letter in due course.

 

Can someone help around this. Im in Scotland and claiming £1374 from BOS and £2676 from Halifax. If i was to go through court would this have to be seperate claims as max I think is £750 in small claims court? or would I be better referring to FOS?

Yeah .... I noticed that when you filled in your profile for "location" you put *somewhere in the uk* - so I read all the way through until yesterday's bump.

 

You are in Scotland - therefore you come under Scottish Law. If you had an English address (or mailbox) you could go through MCOL, but all that's getting complicated and messy.

 

The simplest thing to do when you get your BoS(tords) letter telling you to get lost - is to ring the telephone number on THAT letter and tell them you are shocked and you intend to forward everything to FOS. See what their response is!

 

I have heard (on reliable authority) that the guy or guyess at customer relations is authorised to offer 40% of your claim (you decline, of course) - then 60% (again you decline) and if he doesn't then offer to settle in full - then off you go to FOS.

 

Let us know how you get on.

Just a quick one....

 

Have looked through all the templates and quite a few threads but cant seem to find any templates for referral to FOS. Could type one out myself but would probably come across as moaning (what me? Moan?) and dont really have the time..

 

anyone know where i could find one?
