Think You Are Stuck With A Mis-Sold PPI Plan … Think Again!
This article is written for public benefits. If you read this article, it will give you a clear idea about payment protection.
Do I Have A Mis-Sold PPI Plan?
So, now you are asking whether you have a mis-sold PPI plan. Well, we can help get you started with that. The Financial Services Authority (FSA) has set up regulations that all lenders in the UK must follow. Below, we will highlight some of the most common “regulation failures” which can mean you are eligible for compensation (a refund).
1. Added without Your Knowledge
Sure, we are all supposed to read the fine print thoroughly, but who has a couple of extra hours to read through all the legal jargon. Also, who really understands the legal jargon … is it mostly just the lawyers? Well, sometimes these “less than reputable” lenders slip the PPI plans into your loan without your knowledge. This helps them out by increasing their bottom line, but it does not benefit much (if at all).
2. Required For Loan Acceptance
Some lenders will tell their clients that a PPI plan is necessary for their loan to be approved; this is false information and you could be eligible for compensation. It is very rare that a PPI has to be added to a loan, so if your lender states that you need this for approval, ask them for information/laws which state that.
3. Convinced That Having PPI Would Help Chances of Being Approved
We do not all have perfect credit. Because of this, some companies use this to their advantage. Adding a PPI plan does not help your chances of being approved. Some companies have convinced clients that adding the PPI will help them feel more comfortable with them because of their “less than stellar” credit. Sadly, if they convince you of this, you are just paying extra when you did not have too.
4. Were Not Informed They May Already Be Covered
Not everyone needs another insurance to cover their loans. Sometimes they are already covered with an existing insurance plan. A lender is required to ensure the client understands this. If they do have an insurance plan, they may already be fully covered. However, a “less than reputable” lender may not divulge this information to their client, leaving them paying more than they should have from the start.
If I Fit Any Of The Above, Does This Entitle Me To A Refund?
Now, the above list only discussed the most common reasons for refund eligibility. Just because you do fit into one of the above category, this does not guarantee that you are entitled to compensation. Again, there are many laws set by the FSA that a lender must follow. If they do not follow these laws, then you very well could have a mis-sold PPI plan.
If you believe you have been mis-sold, then you need to immediately seek out compensation. There are several reputable companies that work with clients of mis-sold PPI plans every single day. They are well versed in the laws, and bylaws, necessary to represent you effectively. Sure, you could spend your time trying to get your money back, but why throw money at money. Let someone else work on your behalf while you continue your day-to-day activities. Of course, if you like having a headache every day, go for the gold!
