Unfair Penalty Charges - Reclaim Bank Charges and The Law

Stockport, United Kingdom (PressExposure) June 01, 2008 -- These charges are mostly done on services such as notices for overdue payments or bounced cheque issuances. These so-called bank charges are very commonly seen in bank reconciliation statements.

This is because bank clients are usually told of the implementation of such charges through the debit on their accounts made by their banks. Banks, however, often lead clients astray by saying that they are providing you services that are free of charge.

Some of these services are the zero interest on credit cards, the free personal current accounts and the non-payment of annual fees for credit cards. However, this is not necessarily true because by the time you miss one credit card payment, not only will you be charged with the usual interest charge, you will have to pay penalty charges as well.

Once these banks or credit card companies start to impose this penalty charges, it becomes difficult for any client to meet the due dates of the monthly payments, because of the penalty's exorbitant amounts.

The law on bank charges is quite simple and it stipulates that any charge a bank could impose on its customer must be in proportion to the actual expense that was incurred in the transaction that they did. Because of this, banks and other financial institutions should not impose charges on late credit card payments or such other failings that exceed the damages a bank actually suffered. If the amount that a client has to pay is excessive, this is then considered as a penalty and is deemed unlawful. Because this is so, you could actually file for the recovery of these charges.

There are many companies now that are able to help you recover bank charges. They could help you get six years worth of these charges plus interests.
