Mis Sold Mortgage Protection Insurance
Because of all the controversy surrounding the mis sold mortgage protection insurance scandal
many people's awareness of this issue has been raised. It is feared that many
people may still be unaware that they have been mis-sold cover either because a
policy was added to their mortgage without their knowledge or they are unaware
they have been sold a policy they are ineligible to use.
A policy applied without your consent?
Sometimes the mis-sale of
can occur in very obvious ways, for example, if you were put under pressure by a
pushy salesperson or you were told you had to take the cover or your mortgage
would not be approved. Mis sold mortgage protection insurance can occur in a
variety of subtle ways, though. A good example here is where through error or
design a policy is added to a loan without the borrower's knowledge. Many people
are shocked to discover months or even years after taking out a loan that they
have been paying for insurance cover they did not want or need. The good news is
that this contitutes mis sold mortgage protection insurance and you could make a
Sold a policy you were ineligible to use?
A significant number of payment protection claims
have been filed by customers who have purchased cover in good faith and later
discovered they are ineligible to use it. Common examples here are instances
where customers who are self-employed, have serious pre-existing medical
conditions or who are aged sixty-five or over were sold cover they may never be
eligible to use. Mortgage payment protection can be extremely expensive,
sometimes adding between 13-25% to your total loan amount. If you were mis sold
mortgage protection insurance you could, therefore, have paid out a significant
amount of money unneccessarily.
