Payment Protection Insurance Explained
Many people find the consumer finance industry confusing, and with the prevalence of legal and financial jargon in the PPI claims saga it can be enough to put them off claiming. Let’s have a closer look at the scandal itself and what PPI is, and all in simple terms.
The PPI Claims Scandal in Simple Terms
In 2005 the Financial Services Authority (FSA) investigated a number or allegations concerning the mis-selling of PPI. The investigation that followed confirmed the allegations, and uncovered more widespread instances of mis-selling. Fines were handed out to many lenders, the rules re-written, and in 2011 the High Court ruled that all fees on mis-sold policies must be repaid.
PPI Provisions and Fines Explained
Following the High Court decision the lenders had no option but to set aside a great deal of money in order to cope with the impending PPI reclaim cases. To date, in excess of £17billion has been allocated for the purpose by all lenders, and many experts believe the final figure may exceed £25billion, while the Lloyds Banking Group having allowed for £7billion for its customers alone. It remains your basic right to reclaim PPI fees that are deemed to have been mis-sold, and while it can be done alone, there are obvious benefits in using a professional service.
How much might my PPI Award be?
How much you may be awarded depends very much upon the loan itself, in particular the amount borrowed, the type of loan and the APR. There are also other factors that may influence the decision. The average payment so far is around £3000, but there has been at least one that amounted to greater than £50,000.
