Hi to all

I am new here and for the life of me I am no good at maths:confused:, I am trying to claim back PPI insurance on a loan I have with the Halifax, unfortunately I have defaulted on the account, so I am therefore hoping not to get any money back but to hopefully offset any possible PPI reclaim off the debt.


Amount of Credit (cash Loan) £5,000

Amount of Credit (the insurance loan) £1565.58

Total amount of Credit (The total Loan) £6,565.58

Duration of agreement is 84 months

Total amount I pay for the cash loan £7,838.88

Total amount I pay for the insurance loan £2,454.48

Total amount I pay for the total loan £10,293.36


Monthly Payments are £122.54


!st repayment was made on 3/11/05, I have made a total of 41 payments but I have now defaulted.


I am unable to claim on the PPI as I was self-emloyed at the time I took it out and the insurance was not suitable for me.


Can any one please help.


I would also like to apologies if I have put this new thread in the wrong section.

Thank you

Hi Smudger,


Welcome to the forum.


You have definitely come to the right place for advice about PPI insurance.


I suggest you have a read of the stickys on the PPI home page as there is lots of useful information on there about reclaiming PPI.


Meanwhile, couple of questions for you:


1) What is the APR on this loan?


2) Does Halifax still own the loan, or has it been sold to another company?

Thank you for the advice, have had a look and I can't work out spreadsheets. Sorry for being so dumb, probably the reason I'm in the mess I'm in.


The APR on this is 13.9% and yes the Halifax still own it at the moment. If it changes I will let you know.


Many thanks again

Hi Smudger,


You are not dumb. I remember I was overwhelmed when I first saw them and could not work out how to use them. So you have done the right thing coming to the forum and asking for help.


To work out how much to reclaim:


1) We calculate how much of your monthly repayment was going against paying off the loan for PPI. This amount is £29.12.


2) Then multiply the £29.12 * the number of monthly repayments you have made, so in your case 41. This gives us a total of £1,193.92.


3) You are also entitled to claim back statutory interest at 8% per annum on each of the monthly repayments, form the date of each repayment to the date Halifax refund your money. As we cannot know this date right now, I have use 1st September 2010 as the date. If and when Halifax agree to refund your money, they will do their own calculations anyway. The idea here is for you to understand how it is calculated and give you an idea of how much it should be.


I have completed a spreadsheet with the calculations for you and attached it below. If you have any further questions, just ask. There is always someone who is willing to help around here.


Good luck

Hi dj


What can I say, you are a star. I don't know how I'll be able to return the favour but I will.


Thank you to all who answered, I can send my letter off now and look like I know what I am talking about, which I think reading all the threads is what helps you hopefully in the long run win your fight.


Godbless you all
