hi all

now that a judge has actual sided with a bank over bank charges do anyone think its going to make other banks like abbey more confident in taking it to court.

np mate, I'm always here to help:)

 

 

just to let you know how far i have gone so far in getting my charges back.on the 9/5/07 i sent my second letter asking for my money back. i received the usual letter saying that they are very sorry bla bla bla and they need 4 weeks to sort it out bla bla bla. i am not going to give them the 4 weeks they want, on the 22nd my third letter will be sent threatening them with court action. so i need to start getting myself prepared, sort out the n1 form and start getting my head around the court bundle. this is where i will need your help / guidence.

The N1 is straightforward, and the template is foolproof.

 

The court bundle looks complicated, but its not really.

 

I wouldn't get too far ahead, but if you look at what the bundle comprises you'll see it isn't to bad.

 

Have a read of this it may help

Have now subscribed to your thread, so I can keep an eye on how you are doing.

 

At least Abbey have sent you a standard letter telling you it will take 4wks blah blah blah, I havent even had that privilege :rolleyes: ha ha ha.

 

Maybe they are on a cost cutting exercise, not sending letters out anymore, therefore saving money to enable them to pay people out. Hopefully they will "forget" to respond to my court summons as well and then they can lose on a default. (Wishfull thinking I know)

Well the 14 days are up and now i should be sending the next letter threatening them with court, the only query i have is, since i received a letter from abbey stating it will take them 4 weeks to look at my complaint would a judge think it unreasonable for me if i didnt give them the 4 weeks.I know its abbeys way of slowing things down but i dont want to give them any bullets to shoot me with later on.

so what do you lot think?

Kev,

 

When the 14 days is up, send the next letter.

 

You are spot on when you state that it's Abbeys way of slowing things down. They have had enough practice at this now to know what to do, how many more claims do they need to investigate to satisfy themselves that they can't win in court?

 

You are not being unreasonable, and are following the set guidelines laid down and they are very much tried and tested.

 

Good luck

 

Louis

after sending off my lba on the 23rd of may i have started to look over the N1 form. When i deliver this form to the courts do i make 3 copies of the charges that i sent abbey in febuary or do i update them due to a few charges coming out recently.

when filling out the defendants address do i use the local branch address or the main abbey branch

In answer to your questions

When i deliver this form to the courts do i make 3 copies of the charges that i sent abbey in febuary or do i update them due to a few charges coming out recently You can update your spreadsheet up to the time that you file your claim, but after then if you want to change the claim it'll cost you extra (£38 I think, non-returnable, so it's best to get it right before filing) I updated my spreadsheet between LBA and claim, I wrote to tell Abbey that I'd included the additional charges and included an updated spreadsheet.

Then you make 3 copies of the N1 and the spreadsheet!

when filling out the defendants address do i use the local branch address or the main abbey branch

Their main address at Triton Square.

Hope this helps!

Yes, just to add my little bit to Knellys post.

 

Update your spreadsheet to the date of the N1, and then leave that as your total claim. If you incur extra charges during this next period, ignore it until it comes to Abbey stteling your claim. At that point you can add it to your negotiations (along with your wasted costs), and if they refuse, then just begin another claim for any new charges (its a pain, but it better than amending your form-its a N244 by the way)

ps take 4 cpoies, and keep 1 for your file

hi jules

to be honest with you jules i have been thinking of sending a email to Inga.Kirkman@Abbey.com before sending off my N1 and then send a letter 5 days after the N1 as been sorted. i have read many threads since posting to you yesterday and i think it would make sense to have a go, many people have and they have got what they wanted. Just need to check out in the templates if there is anything i can use.

i had exactly the same idea, I think I will tell them I have the N1 ready to go and that I will issue it, but I am willing to settle for my charges less £100.00 to avoid them and me any further costs and time.

Just had a thought Kev,

 

We will need to find out from someone if we do email this letter to inga agreeing to settle, whether or not we should mark the letter without prejudice or not.

 

if you find a suitable letter can you let me know, if not I will try and draft one up.

i am not sure if i am right and if i am not i hope someone will tell me, but i think by marking the letter without prejudice we will stand more chance of getting a reply from the bank.

Hi Kev and Jules - as I understand it putting "Without Prejudice" on a letter prevents that letter being used as evidence in court. Therefore you could not put that letter in your bundle to show the Judge that you have in fact, been trying to reach a settlement with Abbey prior to the court date. Obviously, you would want to include such a letter in your bundle, so if I were you I would not mark it without prejudice. Funny thing is, when Abbey sent me a copy of their Defence in my case, they marked the letter accompanying it Without Prejudice - they have obviously realised that their Defence is not worth the paper it is written on, lol ;)
