What is a Mis-sold Mortgage?

From the 31st October 2004 the Financial Services Authority (FSA) has regulated mortgage advice. The rulebook which it uses to monitor the industry called the Mortgage Conduct of Business (MCOB requires the advisor selling the mortgage to follow strict guidelines to protect the customer. One of the key areas is that the client is suitable for the product and that the borrower can afford the mortgage and the mortgage offered is the most suitable for the client’s needs.

If it is found that the mortgage does not meet these requirements then under the Financial Services Act 2000 the resultant loss can be claimed as damages. The MCOB rules were established to protect clients and as such any consumer is able to take action if they believe that they have been treated unfairly.

Bad financial advice can have serious repercussions resulting in financial difficulties that in the worse instances can lead to the loss of a consumer’s home.

If you have repaid your mortgage you can still look at a claim with the advisor or lender if the mortgage was mis sold leading to you suffering financial loss.

 

How do I know if my Mortgage was Mis sold?

The best way to think about this question is to ask yourself. If you knew what you know now would you have still taken the mortgage and if not why not?

A mis sold mortgage.

Advised to take a fixed rate or discounted mortgage and told that at the end of the term for the rate a consumer can just re mortgage.

A mortgage taken which will take the consumer into retirement without factoring income.

A re mortgage to consolidate debts without an explanation that the debts will be over an extended period of time.

Sold an interest only mortgage to keep expenditure down when capital and repayment was appropriate.

Wrongly recommended a subprime mortgage incurring greater fees and interest where a borrower could have had a regular product.

Advised to proceed on self-certificated basis even if proof of income could be provided.

Encouraged by the advisor to manipulate income.

Your ability to afford the mortgage was not properly assessed and your home was reposed.

You switched or re mortgaged a number of times at the same property.

You had to pay early repayment charges to switch lenders.

You paid high early repayment charges

You paid high arrangement or borrowing fees.

The mortgages affordability was not assessed properly when vulnerable or low income.

Advised to switch lenders without being told about penalties or fees.

If you have repaid your mortgage you can still look at a claim with the advisor or lender if the mortgage was mis sold leading to you suffering financial loss.

 

Take the Mis sold Mortgage Test?

If any of the following apply to you please contact us today.

Did you re mortgage to consolidate debts?

Did you re mortgage from a high street lender to a subprime lender?

Was it suggested that you choose a lender because of their speed of decision?

Was your income correctly used when assessing affordability?

Did you have a self-certified mortgage when you could obtain a high street mortgage?

If you had an interest only mortgage was it explained that you would need a repayment vehicle at the end of the mortgage term?

If you have repaid your mortgage you can still look at a claim with the advisor or lender if the mortgage was mis sold leading to you suffering financial loss.

If you would like us to look at your current or past mortgages ( from 2004 onwards) as you feel that they may have been mis sold please either email your name and telephone number to info@bankcomplaints.co.uk or telephone 01752 840623.

Have you been declined for a home insurance claim?

mortgage claimA home insurance is taken in order to protect one against the loss they may incur in case of a disaster or damage in their homes. Some of the risks that may be insured against include earthquakes, fire, or hurricanes. However, even with these covers, not all claims are compensated. Sometimes, the home insurance company may deny the policyholder their claim due to any of the following reasons.

Negligence
Whenever a homeowner takes up a policy, it’s his responsibility to take care of his home to avoid any damages that may occur through negligence. A home insurance company can only compensate one for damages that may occur accidentally. For example if there is a fire in your home caused by an electrical fault, it can be taken as accidental and you can be compensated. However, if the fire is caused by gas leakage, then it can be taken as negligence and the insurance company may deny you the claim.

False facts
When applying for an insurance policy, one is required to present the truthful facts. If damage occurs and the facts you gave differ from what is given at the time of loss, then your claim will be declined. Hence, it is very important for the applicant to give the real facts when applying for a cover.

Unpaid premiums
A policyholder has the full responsibility of paying premiums and on time. Whenever a policyholder does not pay either on time or totally fails to pay and the policy lapses, then they don’t stand a chance to be compensated when there is damage. No matter how long you’ve had the policy, if there is damage and the policy is lapsed, the company can deny your claim.

Uninsurable risks
Not all risks are covered by every insurance company. For example, damages caused by terrorist attacks may not be covered by home insurance companies. However, insurance agents have the mandate to let you know what their company covers and what risk they don’t cover. Therefore when taking the cover, you are aware and also they can give you an alternative on how you can cover what they can’t, for you to be fully protected. Floods, for example, aren’t covered by home insurance and cannot be compensated.

Professional use of damaged home
When one runs a business from home, they are obligated to take up the appropriate commercial insurance cover no matter how small the business is. Your damaged property can only be compensated if in your home insurance policy, there are provisions for endorsements that cover all your assets. Otherwise, the claim will be declined.

It is therefore important to know all that your home insurance policy covers and make all the necessary arrangements to cover your specific needs for you to be fully covered. You can also decide to take alternative covers for what is not covered in home insurance to avoid having your claims declined. An insurance agent can assist you in doing this efficiently.

Do you have a PPI mortgage claim?

ppi mortgage claimPPI mortgage can also be referred to as mortgage PPI or MPPI. MPPI covers mortgage payments for the beneficiary is designed to make payments on behalf of the beneficiary in difficult situations that may disallow mortgage payments.  These situations include loss of income due to illness, loss of employment, or death. The payments are made in exchange of monthly premiums of an agreed amount of money.

How PPI mortgage works
MPPI is taken out on the onset of a mortgage. There are premiums payable at the end of each month and in most cases included as part of the mortgage payment. You can dictate the amount of premium you want to pay. However, it is important to note that large amounts of premiums guarantee a higher mortgage payment in claims. The PPI can come to effect immediately after loss of ability to pay for the mortgage or after a few weeks. When taking out the cover, consider any benefits that will allow you to continue making payments even in sickness such as statutory sick pay. The payments can then start when other benefits are depleted. Once the claim starts to pay the mortgage, it can only do so only for a couple of months depending on your cover ranging from 1 year to 2 years. The amount payable is dependent on the paid premiums.

Things of note when taking out MPPI
Like any other protection cover, you have to fit into a certain criteria to qualify. Some of the qualifications include possessing a job and not being a student. If the cover id sold to someone who cannot make a claim because they do not qualify or did not get the right information, it leads to mis-selling of MPPI. It is also important to note that in normal circumstances MPPI will pay out in claim only a fraction of the total percentage of your income or your mortgage. The   cover also has a waiting period from the point the claim matures and payments commence.

Alternatives to PPI mortgage
MPPI can only cover a certain amount of payments for a specific period of time, and not everyone qualifies for it. Thus, it is not the best cover for an extended distress or for some people such as the self-employed. There are other available covers that are more convenient and better placed for different people. For an employed person, employee benefits such as pay without work during an illness or statutory sick pay will cover the mortgage payments. Income protection cover, critical illness insurance and life insurance are other alternatives. These alternatives will cover your mortgage payments and other bills and are usually paid in lump sum amounts. Government help can also be applied as a last resort.

Even though MPPI is a beneficial cushion against many unwanted eventualities, numerous factors must be considered when taking out the cover. This will prevent you from ending up worse than you were before you took out the cover. Furthermore, some options are much cheaper and more beneficial than the MPPI.
