Mis-sold

PPI was sold by many financial institutions as a way of ensuring they could make their payments if they came out of work through accident, sickness or unemployment. But it was often mis-sold as well to customers who didn’t want it, didn’t need it or would not have been able to claim on it.

In some cases it was even added to loans or mortgages without the customer even being aware it had been added.

Santander have set aside more than £900 million to pay out successful PPI claims, much less than many of its competitors, but still a huge amount of money.

Do you think you may have been mis-sold?

Making a claim

If your Abbey National PPI claim is a success, then the firm will have to refund all the premiums you have paid, plus interest and potentially a further 8%. This will be paid direct to you and Gladstone Brookes will then invoice you for our fees which are 25% of any financial benefit received + VAT.

It’s all part of the same no win no fee service. Our specialist team will carefully examine the rejection letter and, if they feel there is the chance they can get the decision overturned, they will write a bespoke appeal for submission to FOS. Our annual success rate for appeals is currently running at 68%.
