I know there's a separate thread for this and i have posted in it. but my claim is with RBS.

I have just received statements from between 1996 to 1998 in that time i incurred £1450 in charges 25 for unpaid dd 15 referal etc, in one particular week £150 was taken in charges, at the time i was only earning this amount.

With charges taking me overdrawn the bank rang and offered loans to clear the overdraft, this happened more than once, i eventually obtained a ccj which i am still paying.

The limitation act restricts claims over 6 years, in my case i am still paying the bank my own money that they took ten years ago, i have an ongoing claim with Barclay's when that is settled i am going to claim for this amount back and will go all the way to court.

just about to post lba. registered of course, had no reply as yet,out of interest just been looking through statements and one of the charges is described as card abuse. sounds like a blatant penalty to me, basically punishing me like a naughty little boy. if it went to court, and theres a good possibility it will due to the limitation act, how could the bank argue the charges were the cost of a service, i will keep you posted.

just received a response from my first letter dated 18-6, saying our charges are fair reasonable, and transparent etc. i note that the charges you want refunded were all applied prior to 1999. I believe that the OFT statement and the various websites that have sprung up on the back of it make it clear that claims can only be entertained for charges applying in the last 6 years. my lba was sent off on the 5-7 so they have got till the 19, then moneyclaim here i come.

i have a ccj on a bank loan i took out to pay a big overdraft off in 1998. i am paying this at £38 a month, the od was made up of unlawful charges, so basicaly i'm still paying the charges back now, the debt remains active, could this be challenged, could i argue that the limitation act should start after the final payment of the ccj, not from 1998. i know theirs a section for this, but i have started the claim with rbos and i'm using section 32 of the limitation act, i just need advice if to go down this road aswell.

Your post raises some interesting points.

Just before yours started, another post "who has had managed loans" began on the

HSBC forum, where the poster is looking to get back not just the unlawful charges,

but also the interest on the managed loan relating to the unlawful charges.

 

Your case is more complicated I guess, because your original charges may be not as

easy to reclaim as those on the other post.

 

Both posts would benefit from a response by the mods to help clarify some of the

quries that have arisen.

I don't think the limitation act applies to CCJs. surely if their is unlawful charges within this active debt, i have a right to challenge this, even though the CCJ was 8 years ago, any advice mods. also the interest on the loan within the CCJ was 11.9% which was added at judgment, could i claim this back on each charge instead of the 8%.

Get in touch with the Banking Ombudsman that is your best bet. If you pass on your details to them, they can help clarify your legal position

What address in England can you use for court papers?, the courts don't like Edingburgh, the staff at the court told me to alter the form to include one in England.

After reading up on the limitation act and doing some research, i finally handed in to court the N1 papers to issue my claim.

I think it could go either way at a court hearing so i'm going to chance it.

Could be useful for claims against RBOS and Barclas.

 

. How do banks calculate bank charges?

UK banks have been reluctant to disclose the costing of how bank charges are set for reasons of ‘commercial confidentiality’.

However, when pressed by the House of Commons Treasury Select Committee, they have revealed that charges are designed to off-set all of their debt recovery costs.

That would include irrecoverable enforcement costs for people who default on loans (consumer and commercial) and debt write off from bad debts, bankruptcy and liquidation.

So, bank charges do not reflect the actual cost the bank incurs in handling your account. Below is an extract from the House of Commons Treasury Select Committee's 2nd Report (2005)

Select Committee on treasury second report

2. Transparency in charging.

50.Mr Varley claimed that in Barclays case "the charge was insufficient to cover the administrative costs".[89] In a letter Barclays expanded on the costs arising from a late payment: these included additional operating expenditure (relating to: writing letters and making phone calls, the dedicated collections department which deals with accounts which have been in breach for over 30 days, developing repayment plans and monitoring accounts), increased credit risk and capital costs.[90] Sir Fred Goodwin told us that for RBS "The costs are going to pay for all the people we have who pursue debt, collect debt, speak to customers and chase payments. The way these charges are arrived at is by taking these total costs and making some assumptions about the volume that is going to come through to arrive at the individual charges".[91] We noted in our previous report that the average charge had increased by over 50% from £12 in 1998 to nearly £19 in 2003. It could be considered strange that the industry's costs have risen so dramatically, when data from APACS indicate that provisions for bad debts have remained constant.[92] Also, continued advances in IT should have reduced costs by automating processes. Of course it may be that the industry could argue that the average fee did not cover the costs involved adequately in 1998.

51. Credit card issuers continue to maintain that their penalty charges represent a fair recovery of the costs involved, but it is impossible to know—because companies have been unwilling to place in the public domain the information needed to create confidence that these charges are reasonable. We therefore strongly welcome the investigation by the OFT and await the result with interest. We trust that, irrespective of its eventual conclusions about the charges, the OFT's report will contain sufficient detail on the way charges are levied to allow judgements to be made as to whether fees are being used to extract additional revenue from cardholders (including those in financial difficulty) rather than covering reasonable costs. It is in the interest of Companies themselves for such information to be publicly available, so that their customers can see that the charges are reasonable.

Crikey - an application to strike out! I've not seen RBS do this yet ... what details do you have on it - did you get an Order from the Court with the outcome of the application? I find it strange that you've got a hearing date without any mention made of the application - is the hearing for the application or is it the final hearing of your claim?

It was stated in the AQ that they intended to strike out the claim maybe they didn't apply, or they haven't yet.

But yes looks like a full hearing thats been allocated 2 hours, i've received nothing yet from the court regarding the application to strike out the claim.

I have prepared well for the hearing and i'm confident i can present valid arguments to the court concerning time barred claims.
