a) Our fees are 24% (VAT Inc.) of the total gross redress (total compensation before HMRC’s deduction) offered by your lender
b) If we do not recover any money for you then you do not have to pay anything (subject to cancellation clause)
An example of our fees is: -
- £1500 recovered, HMRC deduction £100 for income tax. Our fees on this would be £360 (24% VAT Inc.)
- £3000 recovered, HMRC deduction £200 for income tax. Our fees on this would be £720 (24% VAT Inc.)
- £10000 recovered, HMRC deduction £700 for income tax. Our fees on this would be £2400 (24% VAT Inc.)
c) Our fees relate to any contract entered from 1st April 2019. Contracts entered into prior to 1st April 2019 are chargeable at the rate outlined in such contracts.
d) In some instances, Lenders can re-investigate complaint after a final decision has been given. If the outcome of this is that your complaint is upheld and redress given, you will still be liable for out fees.
e) If your lender uses funds from a successful claim to offset an outstanding balance you would still be liable for our fee on the full award e.g. £10,000 award but £5000 used to remove an outstanding balance our Fee(s) would be £2400 (24% VAT inclusive of the £10,000 award) and you would receive £2600
No, we do not charge upfront fees we work strictly to a ‘conditional fee agreement’ more commonly known as ‘no win no fee’. We do not ask for a deposit or any fees until we have successful claimed PPI compensation for you. Our fee for claiming PPI monies back on your behalf is outlined above. If you don’t win your case, you owe us nothing!
No. The banking regulatory body, the Financial Services Authority (FSA) has issued strong guidelines to all the UK banks with regard to PPI complaints and treatment of their customers. Their guidance is very clear; banks are NOT to treat their customers unfairly should they make a PPI complaint.
Customers of all banks and other financial companies are entitled to make a PPI complaint. Banks should (and will) respect this and it will not be used against you now or affect business in the future.
Each PPI complaint varies, with the quick resolution of a PPI claim being dependent on a variety of factors:
- It depends on how your bank is handling PPI complaints – some claims take as little as 2 or 3 days to successfully resolve, whilst for others it can unfortunately take months.
- The complexity of the complaint – for example, if you have several PPI claims and it can also be dependent on which financial products you had, and for how long.
- The Judicial Review that took place in the first half of 2011 caused a backlog of PPI complaints. However, since 1st January 2012, all banks once again have to respond to PPI complaints within an 8 week timeframe.
- Do you have original paperwork? – We can still attempt to to reclaim mis-sold PPI for you. However, if you have the original loan, credit card or mortgage paperwork it can speed up the process and ensure your claim is resolved quicker.
Here at Payment Protection Scotland, we work hard on behalf of our customers. This extends to acquiring policy numbers on your behalf. However, banks and other lenders can be reluctant to pass on this information as they are aware they would be helping you to create a successful PPI claim against them.
For this reason, it can often be simpler for you to check any documentation that you have including online bank accounts and statements etc. If you still cannot find your policy numbers, you should then contact your bank to ask them for the information you need.
If you cannot locate policy numbers or the bank is unable to help, contact us. We can still help.
When you have returned you completed and signed claim pack, your Claims Manager will work hard to get your PPI complaint case ready to present to your bank.
We will deal with the lender on your behalf until we are satisfied we have done everything we can to successfully resolve your claim. This usually means we will successfully reclaim ALL your PPI payments and compensation for you.
We will keep you updated on the progress of your complaint. However if you have not heard anything from us for a while, don’t worry. Some complaints are more complicated than others and take longer to resolve. You can be assured we are continuing to work on your claim.
If you require an update please don’t hesitate to contact your Claims Manager. We’re here to help.
