The case you are referring to is Barrett v Halifax Building Society - a high court case in 1995. Since then there have been two pieces of conflicting caselaw: Cheltenham & Gloucester plc v Krausz (1996 Court of Appeal) and Polonski v Lloyds Bank plc (1997 High Court case).

You will need legal advice to proceed on this one.
