Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
For now please when did the final amount they lost take place?
Then yes you can bring a claim. You have 6 years from the date of breach under the Limitation Act 1980
You can issue proceedings by going to: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk
sorry I meant 2002
Oh I see.
If its 2002 then it is out of time.
You have 6 years from the date of breach to bring an action
This means you needed to do it by 2008
As its now 2015 sadly you are 7 years out of time
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want 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?
Even though I had complained to the bank in 2002 about performance,lack of communication,etc of which they have acknowledged but dispute that it was a complaint.
Yes sadly. The clock starts ticking from date of breach.
I am sorry.
The Limitation Act is quite strict. If you had been a day or two out a Court may be sympathetic but sadly you are 7 years too late.
I am very very sorry indeed.
If you had been in a coma or something the Court may have given some grace.
But extensions to the Limitation Act are few and far betweeb
* between *
Can I clarify anything else for you?
It appears that because I did not Know the law and the bank was not forth coming about how I should complain,I am the one to stand the loss for the incompetent actions by the bank. Although not in a coma I retied on health grounds due to a genetic illness that has now led to cancer.
Indeed. I am very sorry. Just because you retired sadly that is not enough
I know its bad news and I really feel for you. It really is not the answer I want to give you, but I have to be truthful
