    • I hope you mean I try to help people stand up to bullying - and not do the bullying!   I'll assume it's a compliment!     Well - that sort of demonstrates that you've not understood my point and (perhaps?) haven't actually read the OP?   My point is that it is not the boyfriend (the supposed "owner" of the car park) who is posting, but his girlfriend who believes that he "owns" his car parking space.  Yes - it usually makes sense to believe that what the OP is posting is the truth, but in this case there is every reason to believe that there is a possibility that the OP might be mistaken about her boyfriend's ownership of the parking space, because...  well, how would she know for sure whether he does or not?  He might be boasting or lying or simply mistaken.  (My understanding is that many people who "own" flats are often under the mistaken apprehension that they "own" a parking space when they don't.  All the more reason then that somebody else other than the "owner" might be even more mistaken).   I suppose what I'm getting at is that I was a bit surprised that both you and dx100uk were able to give such definite and certain answers to the OP without exploring her situation a bit more fully and ensuring that she fully and correctly understood her boyfriend's rights in respect of the parking space in question.  I was simply concerned that without getting more information from the OP, then the replies given to her might prove to be less than useful.  I wouldn't want her to leave thinking that there was absolutely nothing to worry about and then find out there was because she'd been misadvised because she didn't understand whether her BF "owned" the space or not.   Of course, it may be that my concern here makes absolutely no difference to the answer that needs to be given to the OP because it doesn't matter whether her boyfriend actually "owns" the parking space or not, which is fine.  But sometimes I think it would be helpful to the OP (and other readers like myself) if some of these legal niceties could be spelled out rather than left unexplained.    
    • I've spoken to my son in law and because the gearbox can be very expensive to repair, he would prefer to reject the car.   The garage isn't going to charge storage at the moment.   I feel they have been mislead regarding the service history.   How difficult would it be to get the finance company on our side in rejecting the car and sending back to the dealer?
    • The first thing to say is that you better go ahead and refund the buyer because otherwise she will end up getting negative feedback as well. We will try and help you get your money back from Hermes. Have you made a formal claim through Hermes and have they formally declined you and giving you reasons why? Presumably the item was properly declared and properly valued when the delivery was booked. You don't say whether or not you took out their so-called insurance. Please start off by reading around the sub- forum focusing particularly on the Hermes threats. There are lots of them. Get to understand the principles in respect of the arguments – the insurance element, your third party rights despite the fact that you booked it through Packlink. Have a look at other people's experiences of having sued Hermes, the process of issuing the claim, the defence, the mediation and have a close look at the advice that we give about how to handle mediation. It's highly likely that you will have to issue claim papers so also read around to understand the steps you need to take to bring a small claim in the County Court. It's straightforward but understanding the steps will make you far more confident about what you are doing. Have you started a formal complaint against Hermes and Packlink?

Hi - I've totalled 2240.50 in charges!!

 

Now to send the next prelim letter...

 

I'm following the instructions and within the letter template found here now I'm a bit stuck as to how to calcualte the overdraft interest that I add on??

 

I calculate that you have taken £XXXXX plus £XXX which you have charged me in overdraft interest for the sum which you have taken. Total £XXXXX

 

Apologies if this is blatently obvious and I've missed something. I thought you added this on at the end when you goto moneyclaim (if it gets that far)

The interest mentioned on that template is the interest that they have charged you on the charges....if you get my drift. The other interest you mentioned, 8%, is what can be added when you file your claim.

Hope that makes sense!

Good luck.

Pam.

 

If anything I've said helps you then please feel free to tip my scales!

Really sorry about this, thanks for the reply Pam, I'm unable to figure which exact spreadsheet calculates your overdraft interest which I add into the preliminary letter. (I'm not talking about the 8% here)

 

Could some kind soul pinpoint which one I need to do please. Also I'm not entirely sure what % overdraft I have tbh :eek: Do I need to find this out or is it a standard %?

 

Please help

Thanks to all for your continued support!!

OMG thanks for that - cant believe i missed the tabs at the bottom which take you to the calc ooops

 

Well I've completed the interest tool but I'm not convinced yet that its correct. My overdraft is 1500 and as an example on 30-09-2004 I was charged £16.06 interest and had a balance of -£564.72. The calculator says I should receive £16.06 as interest on the penalty for this sum? This cant be right as its the full amount and not offset or proportioned? Can anybody comment on this calculator and how it works? I dont want to submit a claim if I'm unable to back up how its worked it out and the reasoning behind the overdraft interest on the penalty?

 

At the minute I have 2290.50 in penalty charges and the template has calculated 444.38 interest on penalties? Surely that cant be right?

 

As always, any help much appreciated

my advice is, as always, leave the o-d interest alone, the 8% more than makes up for it

Hmmm the template calculates 10.76% in the penalty interest field as opposed to 8%? (on the right hand tab)

 

If the amount of overdraft interest is correct then obiously I would like to claim it but I'm guessing it might be set up for different account circumstances? Can anyone comment?

So, I sent my LBA yesterday and I get a response today stating the following:

 

Thank you for your letter dated 15 July 2006 requesting a refund of your bank charges of £2643.57 going back six years.

 

In circumstances where you have authorised a payment that would, if met by us, lead to your account going overdrawn or over an agreed overdraft limit, we have to consider whether to make this payment. A fee is payable for this service provided by the bank, details of which are clearly set out in our published price list. The circumstances in which the fee will apply are clearly set out in our Personal Banking terms and conditions which you were provided with a copy when you opened your account. If your claim for a refund proceeded to Court, we therefore believe we would successfully resist any legal challenge in relation to these fees.

 

HSBC is, however, mindful of the management time and irrecoverable legal costs that it may incur in relation to such a claim. for thos commercial reasons alone, and without any admission of liability whatsoever, HSBC is prepared to make a payment to you in the sum of £1996.50 representing the charges applied in full and final settlement of this matter.

 

If you accept this proposal please sign and return the enclosed copy of this letter to us within 10 working days and we will arrange for a refund to be made to you. Please allow 7 working days for your account to be credited from receipt by ourselves. If we do not receive your signed acceptance ithin this timescale, we will take it that you have declined our offer.

 

I trust this matter has now been addressed to your satisfaction. If you are not satisfied with the bank's response you have the right to refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service. Further details about the Ombudsman scheme are set out in the enclosed leaflet and you have six months from the date of this letter, within which to refer your complaint to them should you decide to do so.

 

Thank you again for taking the time to write (

 

Yours sincerely

 

Colin Langdale

====================

So thats the response and I'm stuck for a reply now as I only just sent my LBA off yesterday and theyve now crossed in the post.

 

Can anybody suggest the way forward now. Obviously I dont wish to take this 'offer'; I intend to carry on and claim the full amount they have taken ie £2643.57

 

Thanks again for the support everybody :)

 

############

#EDIT

Would this suffice??>>>>>>

 

Many thanks for your letter dated 01 August 2006. I appreciate the speed in which you responded to my previous letter.

 

However, in response to your offer of settlement, as my claim is for £2643.57 in punitive charges unlawful in Common Law on this occasion I feel that I must decline.

 

As my letter before action was sent on 02 August 2006, giving you 14 days from this date to comply, I am extending this courtesy by sticking to my original deadline. before starting action to recover this amount instead of filing action immediately in response to your refusal to refund the full amount.

 

I shall be sticking to my original timetable, giving the bank until 16 August 2006 to satisfy my claim in full, and unconditionally. If I do not receive a satisfactory response from you by this date, I will proceed to issue a claim for recovery of this sum in the courts.

 

Yours Sincerely

Right no letter received today so MOC time???

 

If I submit it today and their offer comes tomorrow, what happens then?

Well Ive submitted the Moneyclaim as they didnt respond within the set time frame.

 

They made me the 1996.97 offer on the 2nd August which I rejected, and today they have sent me pretty much the same letter as their standard initial letter the 1st time, saying the bank does not agree the charges constitute a penalty and are unenforceable. It refers me to clause 7.11 in section 2 of their banking terms & conditions, and they direct me to the ombudsman again!?!?!?!?!????

 

So am a bit puzzled now

Okidoki I received a letter from DG Solicitors today saying they are acting on behalf of HSBC and they request a breakdown of the amount I am claiming.

 

Do I amend the date to todays date in regard to the template interest OR do I leave it as the same as when it was originally sent?

 

ie am I entitled to claim further interest at this moment due to them not settling? (as this was stated in the MCOL that interest would be charged at 50pence/day?????????????????????
