THE LAW ON UNFAIR BANK CHARGES
The "Unfair (Contracts) Terms Act 1977" and the "Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999", are designed to protect you as a consumer. This Legislation specifies that in order for a charge to be lawful it must represent the actual financial loss sustained by your bank.
The arbitrary nature of blanket bank charges means that all customers are charged the same regardless of the sum involved. However, the only charges that are legally applicable are ones covering the actual losses sustained by the bank in administrative costs and interest
With consumers paying up to £40 for a typical unpaid direct debit for a transaction that may have cost the banks a few pence. It's not hard to see why the banking sector has seen record profits in recent years. What's more, as these charges are unenforceable under current legislation you are entitled to get these charges back for the last six years.
