Mis-Sold PPI

If you think it’s too late to get your money back – Think again!

If you have ever taken out a loan, credit card or mortgage, there is a good chance that you have been mis-sold PPI and you could qualify to make a claim for compensation. Our Scotland PPI claim service can help you get the compensation you deserve.

PPI Claims Scotland

The FCA have set a deadline of 29 August 2019 to complain about mis-sold PPI.

Although the 29 August 2019 is the last possible deadline for consumers to make PPI complaints, for some people time will run out before this date as it can take time to identify some of your older accounts that may qualify for compensation.

Whatever you do, make sure that you are not disappointed by missing the FCA deadline for making your claim.

Don’t delay, make use of our expert PPI Scotland advice today and ensure you get the compensation you deserve.

Think for a moment.

Think about all the loans, credit cards and mortgages that you have had in the past; you could have been mis-sold PPI on these cards and loans, and in some cases Payment Protection Insurance could have been added to them without your knowledge.

Recent recordings show that billions have been allocated by the banks to settle these cases, with millions remaining unclaimed due to those who are yet to take action on their mis-sold PPI.

If you don’t know if you have wrongly been mis-sold PPI or if you don’t know how to make a claim, as part of our PPI Scotland reclaim service, we will be happy to help you. To find out if you have been an unwilling victim you can download a copy of our free guide ’How to Reclaim mis-sold Payment Protection Insurance’ and take advantage of our PPI claims Scotland advice today.

Payment Protection Insurance Explained

Payment Protection Insurance is designed to cover your loan or credit card repayments for a year in the event of you being unable to work due to an accident, sickness or unemployment.

 Although it was sold with credit agreements to protect both you and the lender in the event that you were unable to make your repayments, many people are paying for PPI and don’t have the protection they thought they had. For example, people with pre-existing medical conditions when taking out their cover may find that they are not entitled to claim on their policies despite having paid for PPI. Some self-employed people will also find that they have been paying for cover that is not actually suitable for them.

PPI Can Add To Debt Problems

Debt Advisory Services (Scotland) Limited offers a range of debt solutions to help people living in Scotland deal with their debt problems. Many of our client’s problems have been made worse by having to pay high insurance premiums for Payment Protection Policies that have, in some cases, been mis-sold to them.

Single Payment Policies

Single premium PPI policies have been highlighted by the FSA as being unfair. You may be able to make a claim if you hold one of these and have paid off your loan early or had a change in your circumstances.

Payments for PPI will either be made on a month by month basis or paid up front for the whole policy covering the full duration of the loan agreement.

If you have taken a single payment policy, the policy premium would have been added to the loan and then interest would be added on top of it. This results in you borrowing the money to pay for the policy.

If you have been mis-sold a single premium policy, you are entitled to claim back the premiums, as well as the interest you were charged.
