Confirmation of Advantage Gold/Current Plus/Current Account Credit Zone Overdraft facility

 

Terms & conditions of overdraft

 

1. The overdraft limit should not be exceeded and the bank may refuse to pay a cheque (or allow any other paymentor withdrawal) which could have that effect. If the bank does pay a cheque (or allows any other payment or withdrawal) which results in the overdraft limit being exceeded, it will not mean that the overdraft limit has changed or that the bank will pay any other cheque (or allow any other payment or withdrawal) which would have the same effect.

 

The bank may disregard any uncleared credits for the purposes of calculating the amount outstanding under the facility (and any interest payable). If however the bank does pay a cheque (or allows any other payment or withdrawal) against uncleared credits this does not mean that it is bound to do so at other times.

 

2. a) The facility is repayable upon demand in accordance with normal banking practice.

 

b) Without prejudice to its overriding right to call for repayment on demand, it is the bank’s present intention that the facility will be available until the review date. The facility will be reviewed on the review date but may be extended by mutual agreement.

 

The bank will always give notification of its intention to place a restriction on the customer’s ability to make drawings on the facility. The customer may at any time advise the bank in writing that the facility is no longer required.

 

3. Interest will be payable in accordance with the enclosed “current accounts – charges and rates of interest” insert. Rates of interest are subject to variation from time to time.

 

Interest will be calculated on a daily basis on the cleared debit balance and debited monthly to the facility account. The bank will pre-notify the customer of the amount of interest to be charges, the interest calculation period and the date on which interest will be debited.

 

4. The arrangement fee will be debited by the bank to the facility account on the date of this confirmation or shortly thereafter. The customer will also be responsible for paying any costs incurred by the bank in connection with the facility whether as a result of the customer breaking the terms of the facility or not. These costs will include (but not be limited to) costs of taking and discharging any security; taking steps, including court action, to obtain payment; enforcing and/or preserving the banks rights under any security held for the facility; tracing the customer if the customer changes address without notice and communicating with the customer if the customer breaks the terms of the facility. If such costs remain unpaid then they may be debited by the bank to the facility account.

 

5. Where the overdraft limit is exceeded, charges will be payable in accordance with the enclosed “current accounts – charges and rates of interest” insert.

 

6. If applicable, details of any existing security held by the bank for the facility and/or any new security required to secure the facility are set out in an attached schedule. The facility will also be secured by any available security which the bank may in future obtain. The bank will not be obliged to make the facility available until the bank is satisfied that any security required has been completed and confirmed as available for the facility. All security will require to be granted in the bank’s preferred form.

 

7. a) The bank may debit the facility account in accordance with the terms of clauses 3,4 and 5 of this confirmation even if its results in the overdraft limit being exceeded.

 

b) These terms and conditions will not be affected in any way by the facility account being allocated another account number by the bank or being transferred to another branch, office or department of the bank.

 

c) The bank may change any of these terms and conditions at any time to reflect changes in:

 

i) market conditions affecting its business, including interest rates

generally, fraud prevention requirements, changes intechnology

and regulatory requirements;

ii) good banking practice;

iii) its systems capabilities; and

iv) relevant laws.

 

d) The bank may treat any usage of the facility as acceptance (without amendment) of these terms and conditions.

 

For National Westminster Bank PLC

 

 

 

 

 

 

"The overdraft limit should not be exceeded"

 

I would think that under these terms and conditions if you do exceed your overdraft limit you would be in breach of contract - what do you think?

Don't know if this would be relevant as it is for the trustcard in 2000 which was the cheque guarantee card ( not like that now - now it is a debit card) - would think it is as it is the current account that the money and overdraft was given not the credit card. I haven't typed it all just an extract:

 

14. Guaranteeing your cheques

 

a) You can use your credit card to guarantee payment of a cheque drawn on any cheque account which you hold with us or another Lloyds TSB bank if:

 

  1. your credit card is still within the validity period shown on the front of the card;
  2. the amount of the chequeis within the guarantee limit shown on the back of the card;
  3. you sign the completed cheque in the presence of the person it is made out to and you are in the United Kingdom, the Isle of Man or Channel Islands
  4. the person the cheque is made out to writes your sixteen digit credit card number on the back of the cheque.

b) You must not:

 

  1. write out a cheque for more money than you have in your cheque account or which exceeds the limit of any overdraft agreed with us;
  2. write out more than one cheque for the same transaction;
  3. try to stop a guaranteed cheque being paid from your cheque account.

c) If an additional cardholder has a lloyds tsb cheque account, the card may be used to guarantee cheques drawn on that account. the same conditions of guarantee apply to the additional card holder.

https://www.natwest.com/popup02.asp?id=POPUP/BUSINESS_CURRENT_ACCOUNTS/TERMS

 

These are Natwests Business Current Account T&C

 

After "Account charges" etc. there is a section entitled closure of the account "We may close the account immediately on notice to you if you materially or persistently breach these conditions or if it is reasonably necessary to protect you or us."

 

It's not clear to me which conditions we could "persistently breach" other than in relation to the generation of so called "Account Charges".

 

Is this then a penalty? Maybe somebody could provide an opinion.

Hate to throw cold water all over the gaff, but surely the banks retain the right to vary their T&Cs from time to time and so the only T&Cs that apply are the ones they currently publicise and not the ones signed up to when the account was opened.

 

T&Cs may also have to react to any relevant changes in consumer and contract law so cannot really be set in stone. Probably.

 

Or is that complete rubbish? I'm still on thin ice and don't have a clue what I'm talking about. Any ideas?

 

Is there a solicitor in the house?

Thanks guys, I know I fret, but have you been looking at the Lloyds forum? They're bricking it. I would just like to hear a watertight argument against those flipping 'service' charges before I face the beak in a few weeks.

    – cheques you have issued are presented for payment
    – standing orders and direct debits are due to be paid
    – you withdraw money from a cash machine
    – you carry out a Switch/Maestro or Solo transaction
    – you request us to make payments by any electronic means or by telephone

    is sufficient to cover payment of all these transactions.
  • If a sufficient cleared balance (plus, where applicable, any unused agreed overdraft facility) to cover payment is not available on your account by 3.30pm on the working weekday before the day on which these transactions are due to take place, payment of some or all of the transactions may be refused.
  • However, if at any time such transactions would result, without prior arrangement, in the account being overdrawn or the agreed overdraft limit being exceeded, we may exercise our sole discretion and without contacting you, allow an overdraft to be created or allow the borrowing limit to be exceeded. In these circumstances, the new or excess overdraft is an unarranged overdraft.
  • Processing of items paid in via cash machines and the rapid deposit service may not begin until the next working day.
  • If you wish us not to pay a cheque that has been issued, or a standing order or direct debit instruction on the account, you should advise your branch in writing, or by telephone (followed by written confirmation). This advice must be accompanied by the following details:
    – Cheque – the cheque number, account number, amount, name of payee and date
    – Standing order – name of beneficiary, amount and frequency where appropriate
    – Direct debit – name of originator, amount and frequency where appropriate

Paid Cheques and Vouchers

 

  • Unless we have agreed otherwise with you, paid cheques and vouchers will be retained by us.
  • We reserve the right to take copies of the cheques and vouchers that we receive and pay by any means that we reasonably consider to be appropriate, including amongst other means image processing, and to rely on such copies. We are entitled to destroy originals at anytime and copies taken of paid cheques or vouchers will be retained by us for up to six years.

Your liability

 

  • You are responsible for repayment of any debt on the account. For joint accounts, each of you can be held fully responsible for any debt on the account. This is known as ‘joint and several’ liability.

Service charges

 

  • Service charges for operating the account are charged as detailed in the promotional leaflet insert relating to the account and are subject to annual review. If any changes are made, details of the revised charges will be sent to you at least one month before the implementation date for the changes.

Additional services and charges

 

  • We are entitled to charge for additional services provided to you, whether these relate directly to the account or not. The current charges for the most common additional services are detailed in a separate leaflet ‘A guide to Personal Current Account Fees’ available from any of our branches; details of services not included are also available from any branch. These additional charges, which are normally paid for at the time the service is provided, are subject to annual review. If any changes are made, a revised price list of the most common services will be sent to you at least 30 days prior to the date of their implementation.

Overdrafts

 

Overdrafts are available on request if you are aged 18 or over, subject to our assessment of your financial standing. We, at our discretion, may amend the overdraft limit on the account, subject to giving you written notice.

The overdraft limit should not be exceeded and we may refuse to pay a cheque (or allow any other payment or withdrawal) which could have that effect. If we do pay a cheque, (or allow any other payment or withdrawal), which results in the overdraft limit being exceeded, it will not mean that the overdraft limit has changed, or that we will pay any other cheque (or allow any other payment or withdrawal), which would have the same effect.

You agree that if you or any appropriately authorised signatory on the account :-

  1. requests an overdraft limit or an increased overdraft limit and we agree to the request; or
  2. carry out a payment instruction in any form [eg issue a cheque or make a card transaction on the account] which, either through exercise of our discretion to pay the item on presentation for payment or through payment being guaranteed to a third party, results in the account becoming overdrawn when no agreed overdraft limit is in place or which results in the overdraft limit being exceeded; in either case, this will be treated as a variation to the contract [ie not revoking and replacing any earlier agreement] under which overdraft facilities are provided by us, either with our prior agreement or which arise through exercise of our discretion to pay items presented for payment or through payment being guaranteed to third parties.

We may disregard any uncleared credits for the purposes of calculating the amount of the overdraft outstanding (and any interest payable). If however we pay a cheque (or allow any other payment or withdrawal) against uncleared credits this does not mean that we are bound to do so at other times.

  1. Overdrafts are repayable upon demand in accordance with normal banking practice. This means that at any time we may, on giving you written notice, withdraw your right to overdraw the account and demand immediate repayment of the overdraft. If we demand repayment of the overdraft, you must immediately stop issuing cheques and making withdrawals on the account.
  2. Without prejudice to our overriding right to call for repayment on demand an overdraft limit will be available until further notice or until the agreed review date, which may be extended by mutual agreement.

We will always tell you if we intend to place a restriction on your ability to make drawings under an overdraft limit. You may at any time tell us in writing that you no longer require the overdraft limit.

Fees, charges and other costs

 

We will confirm to you in writing if we are to charge a fee for arranging an overdraft limit. If a fee is payable, we will debit it to the account on which we have made the overdraft available either on the date of the confirmation or shortly afterwards. You will also be responsible for paying any costs incurred by us in connection with the overdraft whether as a result of you breaking the terms of the arrangement or not. These costs will include (but not be limited to) costs of taking and discharging any security; taking steps, including court action, to obtain payment; enforcing and/or preserving our rights under any security held for the overdraft facility; tracing you if you change address without notice and communicating with you if you break the terms of the overdraft arrangement. If such costs remain unpaid then we may debit them to the account on which we have made the overdraft available.

If you exceed the overdraft limit, charges will be payable as detailed in the promotional leaflet insert relating to the account. This insert can be obtained from any of our branches.

Overdraft Interest

 

Overdraft interest is calculated on the daily cleared overdrawn balance on the account and is charged as detailed in the overdraft confirmation or promotional leaflet insert relating to the account. This insert can be obtained from any of our branches.

Security

 

When we agree an overdraft limit, we will provide you with details of any existing security we hold for the overdraft and/or any new security required to secure the overdraft in a schedule attached to the confirmation of overdraft arrangement. We will not be obliged to make the overdraft available until any security required has been completed to our satisfaction. Overdrafts will also be secured by any available security which we may in future obtain. All security will require to be granted in our preferred form.

Miscellaneous

 

  1. We may debit the account on which we have made the overdraft available with interest, fees, costs or charges as detailed above, even if it means that the overdraft limit is exceeded.
  2. The overdraft terms and conditions will not be affected in any way by the account on which we have made the overdraft available being allocated another account number by us or being transferred to another of our branches, offices or departments.
  3. We may change any of the overdraft terms and conditions by giving you at least 30 days' written notice.

  • We will provide same day value, for interest purposes, for transfers between the account and another NatWest account as long as instructions are received by 3.30pm on a working weekday (a working weekday is between 9am and 3.30pm Monday to Friday and does not include weekends or bank holidays). Transfer instructions received after 3.30pm and on non-working days (i.e. weekends and bank holidays) will normally be processed on the next working weekday. You may be able to obtain same day value for transfers outside of these hours if the transfer has been made by electronic means.
  • Cash will be treated as cleared funds. When you pay cheques into your account, we have to ‘clear’ them. This means that we have to get payment from the bank of the person or business that issued the cheque. The time taken to clear a cheque will depend on the type of payment and where it was paid in. As a general guide, allow 4 working weekdays for the cheque to clear but no guarantee is given that notification of its non-payment will not be received after that time.
  • Processing of items paid in via automated deposit services (e.g. cash machines) may not begin until the next working day. Please note that, whilst we are processing cheques the amount available for drawing on your account will be affected (even if the cheque is subsequently unpaid).

Customer liability

 

  • The account may not be overdrawn, but if any debt arises on the account, you are responsible for repayment. For joint accounts, each of you can be held fully responsible for any debt on the account. This is known as ‘joint and several’ liability. Please note that if the account becomes overdrawn for any reason, we may charge you interest at the unarranged borrowing rate of interest set out in our published tariff, details of which are available from our branches on request, and which may change from time to time.

If the amount of this fee is more than the value of the accrued interest on the account as at the date of withdrawal we will deduct the rest from the account balance.

  • Should you close an account during a quarterly or an annual period, you will not receive any quarterly or annual reward interest for that period

  • If credit interest on your account is paid into a NatWest current account in your name, then both quarterly and annual rewards will also be paid into the same account and such payments will not be regarded as withdrawals but only insofar as they will not be taken into account in determining your entitlement to receive quarterly or annual rewards.

  • NatWest Savings Bonds are administered by NatWest’s Treasury Reserve Centre, and you will receive correspondence concerning your deposit directly from this Centre.

Who can apply?

 

  • NatWest Savings Bonds are available to individuals and personal trustees only.

  • Joint depositors are jointly and severally liable.

Deposits

 

  • The minimum you may invest in a NatWest Millenium Bond is £5,000, subject to bond availability. The term of the deposit is fixed for two years.

Withdrawing money

 

  • Partial withdrawals are not permitted in any circumstances.
  • When a NatWest Savings Bond comes to the end of its term, we transfer the deposits to the Relevant Account. (However, if the term ends on a non-working day, we transfer the deposit on the next working day.)

Interest

 

  • The initial deposit plus any outstanding interest can only be paid to the Relevant Account from which the initial deposit was taken.
  • Full details of our savings bond interest rates are available from any NatWest branch. Rates are fixed when we accept the deposit, and remain fixed for the term of the bond.
  • Where monthly income is requested we pay interest monthly, commencing approximately one month after the initial deposit date. At the end of the term your initial deposit plus any outstanding interest will be paid. Monthly interest payment dates and amounts will vary depending on the number of days in the monthly interest period. The minimum number of days in a monthly period will be 28 and the maximum 33.
  • When annual income is requested, we pay interest at the end of the term and on each anniversary of the deposit that comes before then.
  • If the interest is due on a non-working day, we pay it on the next working day.
  • When the interest is left to accumulate over the duration of the bond we pay interest at the end of the term.

Changes to NatWest Savings Bonds

  • There may be an occasion where we require you to withdraw the whole deposit. If we have to do this, we will write to you, and will give you advance notice if we are able.

General

The card

 

  1. You (and any additional cardholder) must do the following:
    Sign the card when you or the additional cardholder receive it.
    Keep the card secure at all times and do not allow any other person to use it.
    On receiving the PIN advice slip memorise the PIN and then immediately destroy the PIN advice slip.
    Never write down the PIN in any way which could be understood by someone else.
  2. You (and any additional cardholder) must not use the card before or after the period it is valid for or after you receive notice that we have cancelled or withdrawn the card.
  3. You (and any additional cardholder) must not use the card if to do so would overdraw the account without our prior agreement, or would increase any borrowing on the account to more than we have agreed.
  4. We own the card and if we ask, you must return it to us immediately (cut in half through the signature box and magnetic strip, and if you have a chip card ensure the chip is cut in half). We, or anyone acting for us, may keep the card at any time. For example, we may withdraw a card and instruct any third party to keep hold of it if you try to use it.

2. Using the card

 

Transactions

 

  1. The card may be used along with the PIN to obtain cash, up to the daily limit for the card, from any cash dispensing machine which we advise will accept the card.
  2. We will advise you of the daily cash withdrawal limit (this may include the value of other transactions carried out at cash dispensing machines, details of which will be advised to you from time to time) and may adjust it from time to time.
  3. The card may be used to settle any purchase from retailers or suppliers of services who display the logo (Switch/Maestro or Solo) shown on the card or any other logo which we notify to you.
  4. Transactions carried out using the card will normally be applied to the account on the same day the transaction is carried out or on the next business day.
  5. On each business day, any available funds on the account will be used first, in priority to paying any other debit to the account, to pay any transaction notified to us since the previous business day.
  6. When we put a transaction in a currency onto the account we will convert it into sterling at our then current exchange rate.
  7. You will have to pay all amounts charged to the account, even when the details on the sales voucher are wrong or where no sales voucher is signed, if it is clear that you or any additional cardholder have authorised the transaction.
  8. If the account is in joint names, although each of you may have your own card, each of you is fully responsible for all transactions carried out by any card issued for use on the account.
  9. When we receive an acceptable refund voucher we will pay the amount of the refund to the account.

Authorising payments

 

  1. Where a retailer or supplier of services asks us for authorisation before accepting payment by the card, we may decide not to give authorisation if:
    - the card has been reported as lost or stolen, or we have reason to suspect it is lost or stolen; or
    - you or any additional cardholder have broken these conditions; or
    - taking account of all other transactions we have authorised, including those not yet charged to the account, there are insufficient funds available in the account.
  2. Once you have carried out a transaction using the card you cannot ask us to stop that transaction. However, we will cancel a transaction that has been authorised but not been paid if we receive satisfactory evidence of the transaction being cancelled.

Cheque Guarantee

 

  1. Provided you follow our cheque guarantee conditions (a copy of the current conditions can be obtained at any of our branches), you may use the card to guarantee payment of cheques drawn on the account and on any of your other accounts at the same branch, up to the amount of the cheque guarantee limit shown on it. You must use only one guaranteed cheque for any one transaction.
  2. You cannot stop payment of a guaranteed cheque for any reason. We are permitted to debit a guaranteed cheque to the account on which it is drawn even when there is something wrong with the cheque or your right to use the card is suspended or ended.

Charges

 

  1. Charges will be payable for certain uses of the card as detailed in our separate charges tariff. These charges may be revised from time to time and details will be sent to you before any changes take effect.

Joint Account

 

  1. If you have a joint account, although you will each have your own card, you are each responsible for all transactions and guaranteed cheques carried out by any card and for repayment of any borrowing which arises on the account.

3. Liability

 

  1. If the card is lost or stolen, or you suspect that someone knows the PIN, you must carry out the instructions set out in the Important Notice at the beginning of these conditions.
  2. If the card is misused before you tell us of its loss or theft or that someone else knows the PIN, you will only have to pay up to £50 for any misuse, unless you have acted fraudulently or without reasonable care.
  3. If the card is misused by someone who has it with your permission you will have to pay for all transactions carried out with the card by that person.
  4. If someone carries out a fraudulent transaction using your card details on the internet or by telephone or mail order you will not be liable for the fraudulent transaction.
  5. Once we receive notice of the loss, theft or possible misuse, we will cancel the card. If the card is then found you must not use it. Return it to us immediately (cut in half through the signature box and magnetic strip, and if you have a chip card ensure the chip is cut in half).
  6. You will not be responsible for any loss arising from misuse of a card if it has not been received by you.

  • in order for us to meet our obligations as a member of the Switch/Maestro card scheme.

6. Ending your right to use the card

 

  1. If we consider it appropriate we may suspend, withdraw or restrict the use of a card and PIN at any time. We will tell you before we take this action, or as soon as possible afterwards.
  2. If your use of the account is ended or restricted, including us instructing you
    - not to make any further withdrawals on the account,
    - not to use the card to guarantee payment of cheques, without our agreement, you will not be entitled to use the card.
  3. You may end your use of the card (and the use of the card by any additional cardholder) at any time by giving us notice in writing and returning the card or cards to us (cut in half down through the magnetic strip, and if you have a chip card ensure the chip is cut in half).
  4. If your use of the card (or the use of the card by any additional cardholder) is ended, you remain responsible for all transactions carried out with the card.

7. Changes to the conditions

 

  1. We may change these conditions at any time to reflect changes in:
    - market conditions;
    - good banking practice; and
    - relevant laws.
  2. We will give you reasonable notice, in writing, about any change.
  3. If we make three or more changes during any 12-month period, we will give you a full copy of the revised conditions.

8. General

 

  1. We do not accept liability if we cannot provide any part of the service in respect of the card for a reason beyond our control (for example, industrial action, failure of power supplies or equipment).
  2. If we do not enforce any of these conditions, or we delay in enforcing a condition, this will not prevent us from enforcing the condition at a later date.
  3. If your address is in Scotland, Scottish law applies to these conditions. If you live elsewhere, English law applies to these conditions.
  4. For your security, we may record phone calls between you and us. We may do this to make sure we are providing a high quality service and following your instructions correctly.

Updated December 2006.

EAR stands for Effective Annual Rate - the real cost of an overdraft, stated as an annual fee, which takes into account how often interest is charged to the account. All other charges, such as arrangement fees, will be shown separately from the EAR.

Credit Zone isn't available on Step or Card Plus accounts.

We'll agree to a Credit Zone Overdraft, depending on your circumstances. Interest is charged at the standard rate on the overdrawn balance, up to the agreed limit, and the first £100 is interest free (£250 in the case of Advantage Private accounts). Please note: if you pay interest at a rate other than the standard Credit Zone Overdraft rate and you go overdrawn up to your agreed Credit Zone Overdraft limit, you'll pay interest at that rate on the whole overdrawn balance - including when you are overdrawn by less than your interest-free amount.

Arrangement fees may apply for overdrafts of:

  • £7,500 and above for Current, Current Plus, Private Bank account and Advantage Gold accounts
  • £15,000 and above for Advantage Private accounts

Our unarranged borrowing rate and fees will apply if you borrow over your agreed limit.

No arrangement fee is charged for overdrafts up to £7,500, where interest is charged at the standard Credit Zone Overdraft rate. If over £7,500 or interest rate is other than standard Credit Zone rate, fee is 2% of the new limit or the increase over the previous limit (minimum £30).

If you pay interest at a rate other than the standard Credit Zone Overdraft rate and you go overdrawn up to your agreed Credit Zone Overdraft limit, you pay interest on the whole overdrawn balance (including on amounts less than £100).

We'll agree to a Credit Zone Overdraft, depending on your circumstances. Interest is charged at the standard rate on the overdrawn balance, up to the agreed limit, and the first £100 is interest free (£250 in the case of Advantage Private accounts).
