Hi macatac :)

If it's any comfort, I've had just this problem repeatedly, with the same people. Are you sure that their office is open on a Saturday? Just a thought.....

Maddening, isn't it? When I finally got through ( a year ago now) I just burst into tears, I was so frustrated and angry......and then I felt sorry for the hapless operator who had to deal with me! :rolleyes:

Good luck :)

Hi lindy, yes,they were open until 2pm. In the end I went to the branch in Llandudno, saw someone on the counter. They went into my mums account, said a note had been put on there,on feb 4th,which stated page 3 of the LPA was missing. They photocopied every page on jan 10th. Suppose ive a few more weeks now to wait in the hope of getting it sorted. Left them with no doubts about what I think of it all.

I can hardly bear to think about it! Amongst other things, they lost my application for online banking, so I had to pay for things out of my own pocket....when the amount owed to me got up to four figures, they suggested I reimburse myself by cheque.....which then bounced as they had lost my signature somewhere in the system. When I phoned about this, they actually suggested that I wrote several smaller cheques, "as these are hardly ever checked" :eek: Unbelievable!

Anyway, to be fair it is now all sorted out and they have been fine. It was just the first couple of months that had me tearing my hair out!!

I couldn't get through to the same place for this particular bank for a POA problem. I ended up doing a complaint on their email complaints page...this generated another line of enquiry which was dealt with fairly swiftly and I even got £150 compensation for the worry!!

Well done, snowygirl :) I'm afraid I was past the point of even complaining at that stage....bit pathetic, but there it is! :eek: Glad it's all sorted now :)

Macatac, there is light at the end of the tunnel, I hope! :D xx

Lindy - I'm surprised they bounced the cheques. Another bank for which I had a 3rd party mandate for my mother happily paid out cheques of over £2000 which I had signed with my own name yet balked when I attempted to change a standing order - I was told they had "lost" the signature card and when I said: well you paid these cheques, was told that they "don't check the signature on those". Makes the mind boggle.
