I have a Preferred account and have been in constant battle over fees. I received a letter today to say they are refunding overcharged fees from 2009 - 2012 and they have entered into an agreement with FCA to refund overcharged fees plus 8% interest.

 

The fees in the scheme include: Arrears management fees, Litigation management fees and Repossession Management fees.

They have to notify those affected by 8th July but it might be worth those with Preferred accounts to check their statements to see if they are due money back as I do not trust they will capture all. I received my letter on Saturday 11th July and it was dated 2nd July. Refunds must be processed by October 2015. It also states that old customers i.e those that have been repossessed or those that have repaid their mortgages are also entitled to the cash back by cheque or bank transfer if they were charged any of the above fees. Certainly worth checking and might be worth posting this as a sticky?

Would be useful to know if they are under the spotlight for anything else with FCA as this must have been rumbling along in the background for quite some time.

Southern Pacific sold my mortgage to engage credit earlier this year, I have not heard anything about a refund from either company, am I entitled to be refunded?

Have tey told you what the fees where and how much they are giving you back? Thought it might be helpful to anyone, like me, who is unregulated, to tr and use that as a basis that the fees were exhorbitant and unlawful. Helppp!!
