Hi all,


New user on this forum, I am claiming over £1300 back from Barclays and have had a notice from my local small claims court to send back an Allocation Questionnaire, and also to reply back with a Mediation Scheme form.


Has anyone got any advice on whether Barclays will try to mediate, or shall i go straight to court?


Thanks for your help!!!!!

I startedmy claim at the beginning of this year, after submitting my letter to Barclays for my claim for unfair bank charges of £1300 plus interest. They wrote back and offered me £275 in settlement which I refused and stated that I would accept £1300 for settlement out of court. They refused and I sent my claim via MoneyClaim.


I have received the letter from court now outlining the Allocation Questionnaire and Mediation, and stating that I have to let the Judge know why I am not prepared to mediate. I am prepared to mediate but get the fealing that it is a nice way to stall a court hearing date for Barclays.


I don't really have the time to go to court nor the knowledge to defend my claim, but this has been dragging on and now I'm getting nervous!.

Do you think Barclays will even show up at court (by current history?)


Hope this is enough

Hi this is the advice i have found on another thread reguarding mediation


'Decline the offer of mediation on the basis that Barclays have refused to properly respond to your earlier requests for refund.

Any typos spelling mistakes are due to leprechauns in my keyboard they move the letters around sometimes (amended just for Bookie)

Hang fire a min Saintly darling..........



Try calling the Litigation Team, see my post for contacts and example of how to start the conversation etc.


Add in that you have been instructed by the judge to enter into negotiations to settle this matter out of court.

Ask if they are willing to do this

[of course they will say yes]


but on the off chance that you dont get the anser you want, you can inform the judge that on xxx day, @ xxxxhrs you contact mr X at Barclays who was unwilling to enter into negotiations to settel this matter before it got to court.


Bonus, the judge is now on your side. Happy days
