Have you been mis-sold PPI from UCB Home Loans?

If you've ever had a loan, credit card or mortgage from UCB Home Loans - if you've got one now or ever had one in the past - then there is a good chance you had payment protection insurance (PPI) added to it.

You might know you took PPI - you might have felt pressured to take it, or told you had to - but just as likely is that you don't know you took it.

PPI was often added to loans, credit cards and mortgages without people even knowing so if you don't think you've ever taken PPI you should think again.

If you've currently got or ever had a loan, credit card or mortgage with UCB Home Loans then you should fill in the free, no-obligation enquiry form. If you have PPI we can reclaim your money and get it returned to you, or if you don't know if you have PPI, or don't think you do, we can check to see if PPI was added to your loans, credit cards and mortgages and if it was then we can get your money returned to you.

Remember that UCB Home Loans are only obligated to keep any records they have on you for 6 years. After 6 years have passed UCB Home Loans are perfectly within their rights to get rid of any paperwork they have relating to any loans, credit cards or mortgages that you have taken with them.

Don't delay in finding out if you've ever had PPI added to your loans, credit cards and mortgages with UCB Home Loans. Don't delay and miss out on your chance to reclaim any money you've spent on PPI.

The first step is to find out if you have a claim and how much it could be worth. To do this simply fill in your details in the boxes to the right and one of our expert claim handlers will call you to discuss your case. We will be able to determine if you have a claim and how much UCB Home Loans could owe you.

There are two kinds of people who have been mis-sold payment protection insurance (PPI) from UCB Home Loans.
  1. People who know they had PPI with a loan, credit card or mortgage.
  2.  
  3. People who are completely unaware that PPI was added to their loan, credit card or mortgage; PPI was added without them knowing anything about it.

If you've ever had a loan, credit card or mortgage with UCB Home Loans you could definitely be one of these two kinds of people. We can help you either reclaim the PPI that you know was mis-sold to you or find out if PPI was added to any loan, credit card or mortgage that you have taken without you knowing about it. If you didn't know you had PPI then you can definitely reclaim this.

Payment Protection Insurance (PPI)

The way the banks have systematically mis-sold payment protection insurance (PPI) is the biggest mis-selling scandal in the history of retail financial services. Over £13 billion has already set aside by banks and building societies (including UCB Home Loans) to compensate consumers. This figure will rise by a considerable sum over the next few years given how much PPI is still to be reclaimed by consumers.

Which? first warned about the dangers of PPI in the late 1990s and have continually highlighted the poor value of this insurance and criticised the inappropriate sales practices.

Banks continued to mis-sell PPI until just a few years ago when the scandal came to light. There were some 50 million PPI policies sold with only about 10% of these having been claimed back.

There are now record complaints going to the banks. The banks have employed stalling tactics and fobbed consumers off to delay and in some cases prevent people getting what they're owed. This is why the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) is itself seeing record complaints with the majority of these relating to PPI and why it is a good idea to use a claims management company to ensure you get back what you are owed.

We are aware of stalling tactics and have experience so we won't be fobbed off so can and will always act with your best interests in mind to get you the compensation you are due.

This is what the CEO of the Financial Ombudsman Service says on the PPI mis-selling scandal.

"Around 50 MILLION PPI policies were sold to people who didn't need them or couldn't use them. A lot of those consumers who were sold PPI didn't actually know they had bought it. Only about 10% of consumers who were sold PPI have so far complained to their banks."
Natalie Ceeney, Chief Executive Officer of the Financial Ombudsman Service

This means there is still about 90% of PPI waiting to be reclaimed. There will be a huge number of people who don't even know they've had PPI added to their loans, credit cards and mortgages.

If you've ever had a loan, credit card or mortgage, from UCB Home Loans or anyone else for that matter, fill in the free, no-obligation enquiry form. We will find out how much you are owed and get the money returned to you.

Do you think you've never had anything with PPI?

Are you sure? You might want to think again...

If you take into account the fact that PPI was mis-sold to consumers in many ways, but a popular way of wrongly selling PPI was to put PPI onto loans, credit cards and mortgages without the consumer even knowing.

You may think you don't have anything with PPI but if you had a loan, credit card or mortgage at any point over the last 15 years or so there's a very good chance it had PPI added to it and a very good chance you never even knew. We can find out if this is the case then pursue your rightful compensation in a speedy and professional manner.

If you've had a loan, credit card or mortgage at any point over the last 15 years or so, from UCB Home Loans or anyone else, then get a claims pack. We can then find out if you did have PPI and if so, how much you can reclaim. Simply fill in the free, no-obligation enquiry form to find out if you have a claim.

How were the banks mis-selling PPI?

Payment Protection Insurance is designed to cover loan, credit card or mortgage payments if you cannot work, for example, if you become ill or lose your job.

Banks and other lenders (like UCB Home Loans) sold PPI to their customers without fully explaining what it covered. In the worst case scenarios, the banks and lenders lied to customers by telling them it was a compulsory element of a loan, or they simply added it without the borrowers' consent.
Elham Rizi, BBC Watchdog

The end result is that consumers ended up with a PPI policy that they often did not want, could not use or didn't even realise existed at all.

Reclaiming your mis-sold PPI from UCB Home Loans

We take all the leg-work out of making a PPI claim.

  • Enter your details in the boxes of the free, no-obligation enquiry form to start your claim.
  • We send you a free no-obligation claims pack.
  • You fill in the required forms and return it to us.
  • We will write to all the banks and/or other lenders that you have had loans, credit cards and mortgages with to reclaim all your mis-sold PPI or find out if you have PPI that you didn't even know about and if so claim that.
  • You sit back and wait for your money to be returned to you. Typically this takes about 3 months however some cases are considerably quicker than that.

The benefits of using a claims management company (CMC) for reclaiming PPI

Reclaiming PPI is not as straightforward as you may think. You do not just ask for the money to be given back to you and without having to do some work and follow processes put in place by the lenders like UCB Home Loans. Some lenders want to make the process quite complex to slow things down as well as putting some people off reclaiming completely.

If you are going to try to reclaim mis-sold PPI from UCB Home Loans or anyone else you should remember you only get one chance to do this. If you do it wrong, or if the bank forces you into a corner with a certain line of questioning etc, then your claim could be rejected even if it is legitimate.

As a professional and regulated claims management company, we can be extremely helpful and often needed by customers. We fully understand the processes and systems involved in reclaiming mis-sold PPI, along with how each lender operates its mis-sold PPI team. We deal with them on a daily basis and have the expertise to remove the banks' ability to maneuver a client to a position they don't want to be in.

Since we first started helping consumers reclaim their mis-sold PPI we have helped thousands of people successfully reclaim what is rightfully theirs from banks and institutions such as UCB Home Loans. There is a vast array of experience with dealing with banks directly. We can take the pain and confusion out of receiving and understanding correspondence from banks whilst at the same time communicating your requirements back to their specialist PPI teams that have been created due to the sheer size of the mis-sold PPI scandal. Using a CMC such as us means you will have a professional acting on your behalf, on a strictly no-win-no-fee basis that will get your claim processed as fast and efficiently as possible.

PPI-hit consumers face stalling from banks

Banks are holding up legitimate consumer complaints as they have rejected a third of claims over the last nine months. In November 2012 this hit a high of 44 per cent.

The rejection of these claims means that more consumers have to refer their case to the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) in order to ensure that they get their money back.

This means that consumers are having to wait longer for their money from a successful claim and some consumers having claims rejected by their banks take their claim no further meaning the banks don't repay what they should.

Don't be one of these people. Using us will mean you use a resource that has experience and a relationship with banks and institutions like UCB Home Loans and can recognise a legitimate rejection from a dubious one. Make a claim through us and receive your refund in the quickest amount of time possible. Fill in the free, no-obligation enquiry form to start your claim.

PPI complaints to ombudsman soar as banks fail to deal with claims

Miles Brignall of The Guardian says: "Consumers complained to the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) in record numbers last year, as the fallout from the payment protection insurance (PPI) mis-selling scandal continued and financial services customers became more aware of their rights."

Don't let this happen to you.

Using us to reclaim your mis-sold PPI means you are using a company with experience of making claims that won't be fobbed off by the banks meaning you have to take your claim to the FOS which increases your waiting time to receive the refund by well over half a year.

The fact is that two in three of the claims made against the ten most complained about banks were later upheld by the FOS in 2012. The banks rejected legitimate claims and will continue to do so. Using us means this is less likely to happen to you.

Don't let banks fob you off by saying you don't have a claim.

Below are figures from the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) showing claims they received and upheld for some of the main high street banks.

Lloyds TSB was the subject of 45,727 complaints to the ombudsman, 42,195 about PPI, of which 86% were upheld; Bank of Scotland attracted 34,434 PPI complaints, of which 81% were upheld; while another Lloyds Group business, Black Horse Limited, accounted for a further 5,888 complaints about PPI, of which 97% were ruled in the customer's favour by the ombudsman.

 

Information about what banks and lenders could have mis-sold PPI

The majority of mis-sold PPI policies were sold from the main high street banks such as Lloyds TSB, Barclays, Halifax and so on however there are hundreds of other smaller banks and lenders who have also mis-sold PPI over time.

If you had a loan, mortgage or credit card from a bank or lender who is authorised by the FSA (now FCA) and you were mis-sold PPI then you can make a claim. If the bank or lender isn't authorised by the FCA then unfortunately you cannot make a claim as there is no official body that regulates that bank or lender.
