Payment Protection Plan Recover
If you have taken out any form of loan or credit within the last 10 years then it is very likely you were sold some form of Payment Protection Insurance. Payment protection Insurance is a type of cover attached to credit and store cards, personal loans, mortgages and hire purchase agreements and it is designed to step in and cover repayments if the insured cannot work due to accident, illness or redundancy. The trouble is the cover has often been mis-sold. Now, thanks to a new high court ruling, you could claim a payment protection plan recovery.
In 2006 The Financial Services Authority investigated the sale of Payment protection and found issues across the marketplace. It was discovered that staff were often not being fully trained and lenders were failing to put in place processes to protect customers from being Mis sold PPI As a result of this report several lenders were fined. The media interest generated by the report and the subsequent fines drew many people's attention to the issue and they began to realise they may be able to make a payment protection plan recovery.
In 2010 Payment protection insurance hit the headlines again when The Financial Services Authority announced a set of new guidelines to regulate sales. The guidelines aimed to protect customers from future mis-selling. Many lenders were unhappy with the new guidelines; however, because they would force them to examine old policies against the new standards. As a consequence, The British Banking Association requested a high court review. In April 2011 the Court returned its verdict finding in favour of The Financial Services Authority. The verdict is expected to see a surge in people attempting to make a payment protection plan recovery. If you are unsure whether you were mis sold payment protection take a look at our guide below.
