See my other thread http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/hsbc-bank/210273-growing-hsbc-managed-loan.html ref my wife's shenanigans.

 

I thought Id start a new one as its on a slightly different tack, and dont want this to get lost in the middle of my other one.

 

Dec 2003 - Personal Loan for £5700 over 60 months taken out (£9700 with PPI and Interest)

Feb 2004 - Above loan re-written, now £10000 over 60 months (£15400 with PPI and Interest)

*** Apr 2004 Request for overdraft declined "recommended exposure 4400, current 15233, proposed 15283"

Nov 2004 - Above loan re-written, now £15000 over 96 months (£27500 with PPI and Interest)

*** Mar 2005 Overdraft of £300 set up

*** Jun 2005 Application for personal loan (at lower APR) to write off above loan declined due to credit score

Jul 2005 - Managed loan for £17000 over 144 months set up to replace personal loan (£32000 with Interest, no PPI)

*** Oct 2006 Application for personal loan to write off above managed loan declined due to credit score

*** Nov 2007 Application for personal loan to write off above managed loan declined due to credit score

*** Mar 2009 Request to rewrite managed loan over 96 months at slightly lower payments accepted, as long as it

remains a managed loan (This option was never taken up as I then found out about all of this).

 

So, to recap we have:

 

- A personal loan increased from £5700 to £15000, even though they decline what looks like a £50 overdraft due to current exposure being too high (I will be tackling the PPI part in due course)

 

- Request for a better APR personal loan being declined and then managed loan with £15000 INTEREST being OK the next month (surprise surprise).

 

- Once they have hooked her onto the managed loan (she didnt fully understand the consequences), they then refuse 2 requests to go back onto a personal loan...

 

- ...but they are later willing to re-jig the figures as long as it stays as a managed loan (and costs her a lot more than any of the personal loans they'd previously refused)

 

----

 

Sorry for the long post/rant, but this really gets my blood boiling as it seems she has been steered into whatever gains the most money for HSBC.

 

Is there anything I can do from the irresponsible lending point of view in case my "unenforcability" argument on the other thread fails?

 

Thanks :)

The problem is there is nothing wrong with irresponsible lending, its great, we have all been there when the bank say yes you can have £XXXXX... until ask for their money back :cool:.

 

Managed loans are perfectly legal and actually the way HSBC run them, a'rnt a lot different from a personal loan apart from the interest rates.

 

What I would say is you need to check the PPI on those loans, HSBC have a habit of charging a one off premium at the start of the loan and then not crediting anything back when the loan is changed and new PPI is added :cool: so I would almost guarantee your paying PPI on PPI... in other words its just another fee.

Thanks for the reply Pete. I understand what youre saying, it just seems a bit unfair of them to refuse a personal loan one minute, but then agree to a loan with £15000 of interest on it...almost a prey on somebody who wouldnt have heard of "front loaded insurance" let alone understood its ramifications.

 

Ref the PPI, there was a couple of refunds etc, but I need to go through this in more detail. There is nothing else about PPI in the SAR (demands and needs sheets, eligability reviews etc), so I will definitely be tackling them about these.

Unfortunately, even though Charles Dickens warned us of the effects of usury over 100 years ago Scrooge is alive and very well. :cool:
