The Halifax payment protection insurance (PPI) scandal reaches back to the early 1990s and continues to make headlines and impact borrowers today. But for you right now, the important questions are:
Were you mis-sold Halifax PPI?
Are you entitled to compensation through a Halifax PPI claim?
The answers to those questions are crucial because many borrowers today are discovering that they have paid thousands of pounds for the PPI. In some cases, the cost of the PPI has been almost as much as the borrowed amount!
As we at Claimspower to help you answer those questions, a little background is in order. Many borrowers may not even be familiar with what PPI is—and that’s one of the reasons banks are being deluged by borrowers who have mis-sold this insurance. In fact, many who were sold Halifax PPI and paid very dearly for it never knew that it was part of the loan they were getting. However, that is only one of the ways this PPI was mis-sold.
Payment protection insurance is designed to take over payments on a loan in some instances when borrowers are unable to make the payments themselves, when they become unemployed or ill, for example. In the case of the mis-sold Halifax PPI, the insurance was sold to cover a variety of loans. Halifax mortgage PPI is also known as its Total Mortgage Protection Plan. Also mis-sold were Halifax credit card PPI and general loan PPI.
If you have taken out any of these kinds of loans, there is a chance that you were mis-sold Halifax PPI and at Claimspower we can certainly help you. Above we mentioned one way that salespeople mis-sold the PPI, but it certainly was not the only way this occurred.
How Halifax PPI was mis-sold
Some borrowers did not even know that they were purchasing Halifax PPI when they signed their loan papers. This is because some loan agreements had boxes that were pre-ticked to automatically include the insurance—borrowers had to opt-out of the PPI rather than opt-in! This is a case where it was not made clear to the borrower that the PPI was, in fact, optional.
In many cases, the salespeople made borrowers feel that PPI was compulsory. Often they were pushy, making borrowers believe that they could not refuse the insurance. Other salespeople said or implied that the loan would be more expensive without the PPI.
In some instances, borrowers were made to feel that they would not qualify if they did not accept the PPI, or that the loan application process would be stopped if the borrower did not agree to the insurance.
These examples generally involve borrowers being pressured or tricked into buying the insurance. However, there are also more subtle ways the PPI was mis-sold and at Claimspower we can help you through that.
