We complained in 2007 via a solicitor in the Independent Banking Service. The last communication with the bank was in May 2008.
I am sorry but the chances are you are out of time.
You have 6 years from the date of breach under the Limitation Act 1980 to bring a claim for breach of contract.
This means that you needed to bring a claim within 6 yars.
So unless it was after 4th December 2007 then any claim is out of time and statute barred.
I am sorry if this is not necessarily the answer you are looking for and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Thank you for your honest answer.I didn't breach the contract. That was ,in my opinion, a case of serious fraud which was and is a common practice in many banks in the U.K. This fraud surfaced and currently under investigation at the Royal Bank of Scotland.
I understand that there is a time limit for a breech of contract, my question is: is there a limit to bring a claim against a Fraud Practice?
I appreciate your help.
