Hello Terry my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Just so that I am clear, what date did the fee wrongly get charged, was it 2001?When did you realise it was wrongly charged?Alex
Thanks. Its bad news I am afraid. Under the Limitation Act 1980 you have 6 years to bring a claim under breach of contract (which is what this is) or 12 years if that contract under a deed.
You are sadly out of time and the claim is statue barred. You are either 9 years under contract or 3 years under a deed.
Therefore they have an absolute defence and I am sorry to say any claim would fail.
I am very 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?Alex
I am really sorry. If I could invite you to rate my answer before you go today please, otherwise the site does not credit me for the time spent with you today. Thanks and good luck. Alex
