Got a letter of the halifax offering £182 as full and final settlement. does this reply look allright.

 

 

Thank you for your letter dated 20 July 2006 offering a goodwill gesture payment of £182 I will accept this offer only as part payment and not as full and final settlement. I look forward to hearing from you within the next 5 days with regards to refunding all charges levied from my account these amount to £1022.

I am also enclosing a copy of the schedule of charges which I am claiming, a copy of which was sent in my original letter of 11 July 2006.

If you do not respond, or you do not respond positively, within this time period, I shall send you a letter before action giving you a further 14 days in which to reflect. I believe that these targets are more than sufficient for a large company such as yours with dedicated staff and departments.

 

After that, there will be no further communication from me and I shall issue a claim at the expiry of the second deadline.

Hi and welcome! wink.gif

 

Take your time and have a good read of the FAQs and the templates letters, followed by a browse through many of the threads in the forum for your bank (see links in my sig, below). When you are ready to start, post your own thread in the Halifax forum and report your progress in that thread as well as asking your questions (there won't be too many if you've read the FAQs properly) and you will get the best out of this site and all the accumulated experience here!

Quick update no response to my request for a copy of the credit agrement sent that on the 11 july. so what do i do next. lol they even credit the £1 fee to my visa

 

Dear Sir/Madam

 

Re:− Account/Reference Number ********************

 

With reference to the above agreement, I would be grateful if you would send me a copy of this credit agreement. I understand that under the Consumer Credit Act 1974 (Sections 77−79), I am entitled to receive a copy of my credit agreement on request. I enclose a payment of £1.00 which represents the fee payable under the Consumer Credit Act.

 

I understand a copy of am credit agreement should be supplied within 12 working days.

 

I understand that under the Consumer Credit Act creditors are unable to enforce an agreement if they fail to comply with a request for a copy of the agreement under these sections of the Act.

 

I look forward to hearing from you.

FOUND THE INFO FOR THIS ESLEWHERE THANKS TO DOLLY

Got another one of then today they upped their offer to £546 (6 months worth of charges) they reckon. As their time is now up is this reply allwright to send. As court claim going in early next week.

 

 

Thank you for your letter dated 10 August 2006 offering a goodwill gesture payment of £546 I will accept this offer only as part payment and not as full and final settlement.

I am very disappointed that you have failed to respond positively to me letter of the 26 July 2006 LETTER BEFORE ACTION. As this deadline as now passed you have left me with no alternative but to begin a claim against you for the full amount off £1022 plus interest plus my costs and without further notice.

Help just trying to fill the n1 claim form in now not sure what to put in the VALUE bit here, and for the particulars of claim is this allright.

 

 

1. The Claimant has an account *********** with the Defendant which was opened on or around 1990

 

2. During the period in which the Account has been operating the Defendant debited numerous charges to the Account in respect of purported breaches of contract on the part of the Claimant and also charged interest on the charges once applied. The Claimant understands that the Defendant contends that the charges were debited in accordance with the terms of the contract between itself and the Claimant.

 

3. A list of the charges applied is attached to these particulars of claim.

 

4. The Claimant contends that:

 

a) The charges debited to the Account are punitive in nature; are not a genuine pre-estimate of cost incurred by the Defendant; exceed any alleged actual loss to the Defendant in respect of any breaches of contract on the part of the Claimant; and are not intended to represent or related to any alleged actual loss, but instead unduly enrich the Defendant which exercises the contractual term in respect of such charges with a view to profit.

 

b) The contractual provision that permits the Defendant to levy such charges is unenforceable by virtue of the Unfair Contract Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations (1999), the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977 and the common law.

 

5. Accordingly the Claimant claims:

 

a) The return of the amounts debited in respect of charges in the sum of £1022 and any interest charged thereon;

 

b) Court costs; £120

c) Data Protection Act 1998 subject access request fee £10

 

d) Postal Costs: 5 letters at £0.32 each £1.60

 

e) The claimant claims interest under section 69 of the County Courts Act 1984 at the rate of 8% a year from 29th April 2000 to 16th August 2006 of £145.56, and interest at the same rate up to the date of judgment or earlier payment, at a daily rate of £0.22

Update on this just had a letter of the Halifax

 

 

Dear Sir/Madam

 

Following a recent assessment of your overall relationship with the Halifax, a decision has been taken to withdraw your Current Account overdraft facility. this will occur within 2 weeks from the date of this letter.

 

Subject to outstanding transactions this may result in your account falling into an unauthorised debit balance. if this happens, you will liable for unauthorised overdraft charges, and any debit balance will be charged interest at the unauthorised rate. In accordance with condition 18.1 of your terms and conditions, you are then required to ensure your account does not go over the arranged overdraft limit.

 

It is in your interest to contact us to discuss this on 0870 850 1298

 

Yours faithfully
