RBS solicitor requests info ??

Recommended Posts

I have just used moneyclaim to issue court proceedings to claim back £2700 from the RBoS.

They acknowledged the claim and now have defended.

I was expecting a form from the court to fill in and send back which I was ok with but I have just recieved a letter from the banks solicitors.

They are asking for clarification of all dates,amounts and reasons for charges.Also in relation to each charge an explanation as to why I contest it and how much I think should have been charged.

In addition they say "In your claimyou state-an unfair penalty under the Unfair terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999"

"PLease specify all of the facts relied on by the Claimant in support of the contentions and in particular please identify the regulations relied upon by the claimant in alleging that the contractual provisions referred to are unenforcable"


If i don't supply this info by 6/07/07 they say they can apply to the court for an order to "strike out the claim"


HELP i have not read any other case like this what do I do ???

Pretty much every case submitted via MCOL received this letter.


It's because you haven't given them a full list of all the individual charges.


All you need to do is send them (and a copy to the court) the list of charges, listing the date of the charge, the amount of the charge and the reason for the charge (the reason stated on your statement will suffice).


You don't have to answer their questions, just tell them that the answers they seek will be contained in your court bundle when submitted for the hearing.

Thanks Kurt! Me too. I've received the same letter this morning and need to get the information to them before the 9th. I had sent a list of charges but I hadn't stated the reason for each charge.

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.

    • I am new here but very glad to find my way here and would welcome any input.
      i purchased a brand new campervan conversion from Hillside Leisure (175 miles from our home) on July 26th for £31,000 and, within 48 hours, during a storm, the alarm began to sound incessantly. We could not get it to stop, even after trying everything listed in the manual. We phoned Hillside on Saturday July 28th around 2.00pm. The young man who answered the phone said he would seek the advice of their technician and call us back, which he did. The technician told us that they, Hillside, couldn’t help, but that we should take the van to Nissan (the van is a Nissan) as the fault would lie with one of their components.
