    • dx100uk - thank you for your advice.  I will send a SAR to Vanquis and really appreciate all the help on here.   I may have read your last sentence in the way that it was not intended but it has came across very judgmental and not helpful.  I have came on this site for some help, not to be judged.  If that was not your intention then I apologise as I realise text can be read in the way it was not intended.  
    • . I'm sorry but this is not correct. There is a very long established rule that you are required to exercise utmost good faith (uberrima fides) when becoming a party to any kind of insurance contract. This means that you have quite a strict duty to accept responsibility for disclosing any information which a reasonable person in your position might understand could materially affect the risk. I can imagine that the interpretation of this rule would not be applied quite so strictly to a very new and young driver – but the more that one has been driving and the more insurance policies one has held, then I think that the stricter  this rule becomes. It is also well established that one can misrepresent something simply by withholding information – by silence. I'm sorry to say that I think that this rule and the value of it is so self-evident that it is scarcely worth discussing. I wouldn't start raising this issue if I were you with insurers or the courts because you will come away with a bloody nose and loss of credibility
    • @unclebulgaria67 your point is particularly valid especially in regards to loss in the event of a claim. Irrespective of 2x SP30’s or not the vehicle is insured for its full market value. The insurers rating changes based on risk against those endorsements, where said risk calculation isn’t made available.    Also I question the validation of 22% in premium. Is that based on today’s risk profiling, or is that applied retrospectively to day 1 and can that be evidenced.    One thing that is very clear, is that to bring about any degree of misrepresentation the insurer has to have evidence that questions were asked in regards to the endorsements.   This was an auto renewal and when I’ve checked the Brokers electronic Copy on “My Policy’ at renewal, there is no section included relative to accidents in the last 5 yrs or Motoring convictions. Everything else relative to me and the named driver is listed. 
    • Here is what exposes Johnson & Co Commission document, makes for sober reading   Wonder if Snake Oil Singham has read and digested it?   https://ec.europa.eu/info/sites/info/files/brexit_files/info_site/com_2020_324_2_communication_from_commission_to_inst_en_0.pdf
    • Must be a positive if the Insurers are now using the legislation as it was intended. It is just that I have not heard of it being used for Car Insurance, as the 22% comes from the Insurers rating calculations, which is not available information to the Policyholder. With Home Insurance, if you Insured a Building for £100k, when it should have been Insured for £122k, it is easier to grasp.   The Insurers would have issued the policy documents clearly showing that no motoring offences had been included within the premium calculation and the OP has had 5 months to correct the record with Insurers before the accident.   Perhaps probe the Insurers on the 22%. Can they provide evidence from their Underwriting rating guidance that this is the extra premium for 2 SP30's.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Hi, sorry to trouble everyone.

 

I was made redundant in August 2008, my loan was taken out February 2007 and when I was sold the loan being a single parent with a daughter I decided it was better to be safe rather than sorry and to have PPI insurance on my loan so it would cover me for unforeseen eventualities such as illness, death or sickness. I went to my bank in my lunch hour to sort the loan out and already had a pre existing loan with them which was either 5 or 7 years term with monthly payments of around £260.00 per month but I had decided I wanted to shorten the term of the loan to around 4 years so within that time my debts would be cleared and being 33 when I took the loan out I could eventually try for a mortgage once cleared and preferably before I was 40. The loan I already had with the bank had payment protection on it which only covered me for a year for any such unforeseen circumstances. The whole reason I agreed at the appointment to take out a new loan was for a shorter term so I could pay it off quicker even though the monthly premiums were going to be £374.90 per month (£100 higher than I was paying on existing loan). I agreed with the bank adviser in February 2007 that this was a better option loan for me as was advised the payment protection covered more and was for an indefinite term so if anything should happen I need not worry, I went ahead and agreed the loan, all I have got paperwork wise is an unsigned letter dated February 2007 with a printed sheet stating monthly repayments £374.90 payable 1st of every month and over a term of 54 months. Since I was made redundant end of July 2007 I have been claiming on my payment protection with no problems (except them being late with payments occasionally) but I had an absolute shock yesterday the insurance chap on the phone when I was chasing payment again stated that they would pay this months then next months then my 12 months protection was up and they would not be paying anymore as my protection had a 12 month limit on it. At present the bank are talking to their customer relations centre but havent got back to me as obviously past August 2009 if the insurance company are not paying my loan and I dont find employment then I cannot pay it until I do find employment and I am now frit scared of hassle from the bank and further default charges. As my loan was taken out prior to April 2007 (I think i've heard something about loans before this date) is there anything I can threaten the bank with or do regarding my loan as I am truly in shock about the misleading advice they gave me regarding my payment protection cover because if it was no better than the last loan I would not have bothered to take it out with extra payments a month. I would like to know where I stand regarding this as I believe I was missold the loan or payment protection to be told one thing in the bank and then to find out what I was told was a load of rubbish and it only had the same 12 months protection on as my previous loan.

 

Thanks Lassie69

Hello lassie,

Hi, sorry to trouble everyone.

(except them being late with payments occasionally)

 

This could be useful if they have failed to comply with the PPI terms and conditions on paying out when they are supposed to then this could bode well in the argument that it was mis-sold as they did not uphold the terms of the agreement therefore making the agreement useless to you.

 

 

You may have some trouble in reclaiming especially as you have successfully claimed on your PPI. However IMO you should still have a stab at getting your PPI back.

 

Please have a look at the stickies at the top of the forum there is a lot of useful information in them.

 

There is one.... links

 

which has dozens more links some will be relevant on mis-selling and how to go about reclaiming others are general interest. This one is also very useful....

I have no legal training and the advice I offer is a matter of support. Before you commit to any Legal action you are advised to contact a qualified legal practitioner.

------------------------------------------------

Bank charge successes:

Halifax - Full settlement incl interest.

HSBC - Settlement, goodwill no admission of liability about 75% of claim.

RBS - Settlement, goodwill no admission of liability about 70% of claim.

2 ongoing claims for bank charges with HSBC with more to come. (Supreme Court ruling could have upset these claims) They did :mad:

PPI Successes

PPI 4 settlements on 9 loans. FOS involvement on 7 added on the 8 % Statutory interest another 30% to both.

2 claims settled in full with LV without FOS involvement.

2 claims settled in full with HSBC without FOS involvement

 

PPI Claims ongoing with:

Cap one Now with the FOS

Barclays. Paid up today 24/04/10 cheque received for over £4,500 and in the bank.

LTSB still have to decide on this as their SAR production was abysmal. Papers data mixed up documents missing etc

 

1 Complaint not upheld by FOS they said it was ICO issue. Complaint upheld by ICO. See this..

Post 290 from

***RBS PPI Claim Long fight but, WON***

 

Please do not PM me for advice as it may be sometime before I can respond.

 

Keep at them. Do not give way and do not accept all they tell you, they will delay and stall for as long as they can to prevent repaying you your mis-sold PPI.
