    So does this mean if the banks lose yet again that payments might start being mead from june to them with claims in?

    Also if the banks win what happens to the ones thats had payment? Will they have to be paid back?

  • Afraid not Mar.cresham. The June date is for the House of Lords hearing, we will then need to wait for its decision to see what the next step will be.

    On the paying back question. As mentioned in our News Guide, no one will need to pay back any money they have already received:

    Q. Will I have to pay back any money that my bank has already paid to me?
    A. No, regardless of any outcome of the test case. All previous settlements will not be affected, as payouts were a gesture of goodwill rather than a legal agreement. You can keep any money you have already been given. You can also start a new claim for any charges that you have received since your last payout, but this will be put on hold, as with all other new claims.

  • i recived a letter from my bank early on offering 1/4 of my claim and said if i did not accept or should i say implied i would recive nothing and that this was a final offer, as i needed the money at the time i accepted the offer but also wrote saying whist doing so i dont accept that the offer as being final, as the banks were also at that time considering there appeal, if the banks lose yet again can i then claim the outstanding balance or do i just make a new claim?
  • What happens if the banks do somehow manage to win this, I don't think they will but asking what could happen with all the claims issued against them.

    Hoping this all gets sorted soon before I get any grey hairs....

    Would they make any claim for costs, or will the claims just be struck out with no order as for costs

    The bank wins

    Not the only one

    Unless the claim is more than £5000 then costs cannot be awarded against the claimant and it is unlikely the banks would if they win.

    You can claim anything outstanding since all offers are not full and final offers on claims.
