Hi Jan

 

My, how differently it could be if only Abbey were like this too. It doesn't seem that Banofi had too much differently to me (and others) and yet I/We get ignored by Abbey. It is blatantly obvious that all the banks are singing from different hymn sheets, which I don't think is right, surely there should be one set of rules that all the banks have to adhere to, after all we all have to follow the same procedures and rules!

 

That link for this is money site is great Jan. What an excellant site it is!! I had no idea it existed.............live and learn eh! I'll be bookmarking it now though! It just further highlights the garbage the banks deal out on a daily basis. It really needs the government to get their fingers out and make the banks accountable for their actions!

hi simon, have you actually had an 'application for stay removal' rejected by DJ hill ?

 

Hi Pinkbabez

 

No I haven't. I haven't actualy filed the N244, I was going to and then decided to let the bank know of my hardship status and health issues. I did that over 2 weeks ago and they haven't replied. So I listened to all the advice from Jan and Zootscoot and decided contacting the FOS may be the right track.

 

Do you know of any others who have had any success with DJ Hill?

New Update

 

I received a letter from the Abbey's debt recovery section today.

 

DEFAULT OF PAYMENT

DRMS Ltd have been instructed by Abbey to obtain immediate settlement of the above debt.

 

Please arrange to pay this amount by return of post. If this is not possible, please call this office today on 0845 6001618 to discuss your proposals for repayments.

 

Payments can be made by Switch, Delta, Visa or Credit Card and by cheque or postal order; made payable to DRMS Ltd. Payments can also be made at your local Abbey branch quoting your account number.

 

***Your account will be closed once the balance has been cleared***

 

Maybe I will pop down to the bank tomorrow and pop the cash in that's under my mattress. Or I could ring and offer to pay with the new card they sent last month, or was it September???

Not bad considering about 12 months ago I was in credit!!!

 

Suppose I had better write to them and tell them I'll give them 50p a week!

 

Maybe if they take me to court I'll ask for a stay!!

hi simon, no i dont know of any other succsess with DJ Hill but if you gave it a go you could be another !! whats stopping you ? i really think you should apply for the lift and add your own letter explaining your personel situation and any letters which show you financial position.....it worked for me. I knew as long as that stay was on my claim then abbey wernt going to budge. but thats just a view on my case what you do is your choice but good luck dont give up :)

One thing that might happen ( as per the case on BBC2 tonight) is that you may not get the stay lifted but you might get the charges frozen - that might help.

 

As I said maybe you could try both ways at the same time - and emphasise to the FOS you dont want to go to court - but you feel you have no choice.

 

Reference you letter about debt recovery - is this for the account you are reclaiming charges?

 

 

Also in the money mail link - it does clearly say

 

Although as a hardship case you are not entitled to a refund of charges the bank must consider your case.

 

Therefore if they refuse they should give you the reasons why in writing so you have more to base your future arguments on.

UPDATE

 

I received a letter from the FOS, dated 13 November, it reads as follows;

 

Your Complaint about Abbey National plc

 

Thank you for contacting us. I enclose our leaflet which explains how we can help to resolve complaints. As you will see before we can consider a complaint the business concerned must have been given a chance to put things right.

 

I have therefore written to Abbey to let them know that you have a complaint. Abbey should now contact you for details of the complaint, if they do not already have them. If you do not hear from them within the nest few days after receiving this letter, you may wish to contact hem at the address given below, mentioning that we have already written to them. They should issue a final response in writing within 8 weeks of the date they receive the complaint.

 

On receipt of Abbeys final response, if you feel they have not put things right for you, or, alternatively, if you have not heard from thrm after those 8 weeks, please complete the enclosed complaint form and send it to us along with any supporting documentation.

 

Yours sincerely

 

The address they gave me to write to was interesting because it was a Milton Keynes address and a name I haven't heard of before. Not sure if I'm allowed (legally) to put the details on here, so if anyone wants to know, you'll have to pm me.

IMPORTANT UPDATE

 

As I awoke yesterday morning

when all things new are born

A Ronan rang my telephone

to herald in the dawn

 

After nine long tiring, upsetting, annoying months the Abbey have decided to settle out of court because of my hardship and health issues!

 

He introduced himself and said my letter of 29 October had worked it's way through various departments at the Abbey and that they would in view of its contents like to negotiate a settlement. He said becuase of the hardship and health problems I had they did not want to make me wait until the outcome of the test case. Incidentally he said whatever the result, it would be appealed and more than likely drag on for possibly a number of years. Nothing more than most people would expect I suppose but worth noting!

 

He mentioned the additional charges and interest that I had noted in my letter and despite them not yet being officialy part of the claim the Abbey would include them in negotiations and he asked if I was prepared to reach a settlement with him, I said YES!!!!!!...............Give me the money..................:p . Actually I just said yes!!!!!!

 

I asked if the money would be paid by cheque?, he said it would normally be paid direct into my Abbey account (which is £3889 overdrawn), (he was obviously aware of this fact as our discussion went on). I said I had been hoping for a cheque from them. He said as long as I realised the ongoing charges and interest would continue on the account and I would still be reponsible for it, then fine he would organize a cheque. So I decided to go for that.

 

I do realise the debt on my current account is not going to go away and that I am responsible to repay the money but my financial state at the moment is more important to me to be honest. Christmas is just around the corner and as it stands at the moment, we will be chasing down the beach for a fat seagull for dinner:eek: , sat at the table around our Xmas Twig that we found in the sweepings from the tree stall in the market! ;)

 

Anyhow he said Abbeys position was to pay 65% of the total claim or about £2337 and he asked if I would be prepared to settle for that?

 

So I said I was hoping for about £2500, after a pause he said ok, that was a workable figure and he was happy to go for that.

 

Now the dilema was whether to push for more and I decided not to, so I accepted £2500. He has told me I will have a cheque by Friday. He gave me his number in case of any problems and said I could call him if there were.

 

I know a lot of people on here will probably think I should have pushed for a larger amount, basically I have for gone £1100 on the total amount. I had to think on my feet and take everything into consideration.

 

The original amount of my claim before all the new charges was £2730, which includes interest @8% upto todays date of £375. Interest is not guaranteed to be awarded by the court if the case got there so £2.5k taking these factors into account I don't think is a bad offer.

 

Regarding the charges accrued since thr initial claim well at £2.5k I am foregoing those as well but I need to look at the bigger picture really.

 

I am going to receive £2500 which is going to go into my new bank account and I am going to get the benefit of that money, which to be honest is an absolute godsend at the moment.

 

If the banks had levied charges at a reasonable level from the beginning then this case or anyother would not have come about as people generally accept that a charge is appropriate but not at the current ridiculously high levels. So I am looking at this a pretty good deal. The bank did also refund £300 in charges 2 months ago of their own free will on my account. Obviously when negotiating Ronan and the Abbey were aware that my account is £3889 od, yet still prepared to reach agreement by issuing a cheque to me, so I can take advantage of the money.

 

To be brutally honest we need the money so much, given our circumstances, there is only so long you can rob Peter to pay Paul whn you live on £90 a week. The money will be a great relief for us, enable me to clear some smaller debts, have a decent Christmas and still have a bit left over, maybe even go for a short break somewhere, which will take some pressure off my family who look after me without complaint day in day out.

 

I know I now have to reach agreement with Abbey over my current account but that is a new story and for now I want to enjoy a few quid.

 

I will be making a donation to this site as soon as my cheque is received and cleared (wouldn't it be great if it bounced!), it is a truly grat place. My heartfelt thanks to all who have helped and supported me through this journey and those of you who are still battling the banks................DO NOT GIVE UP, keep going and I hope you all get what you deserve in the end. An EXTRA SPECIAL THANK YOU to;

 

:) Kia...............Jan.............Zoomscoot and..............abroadgirl:)

You have all given me loads of help and been there supporting me and without that I would not be posting this now, you are exceptional people with hearts of gold, Thank you just does not seem enough somehow.

 

I will not be disappearing now I have won, I am allready helping one person and will continue to help others where I can, besides what would you do without me to nag you!!!!!

 

Thank you all so much

 

Simon:)

 

PS. Zootscoot please do me the honour of changing my title and adding that massive word........................***WON***. Without exception you are the best mod on this site!
