    Mortgage with Abbey National (as was) PPI?

    Mortgage with Abbey National (as was) PPI? 9th Mar 12 at 2:39 PM
    We had a mortgage with Abbey National which started in 2001 and was 'paid off' in 2004 when we sold the house and bought this property with a mortgage from another provider (Barclays).

    It's only now that DH insists that we had PPI on the 'old' mortgage.

    I've managed to find the original mortgage account number, the exact dates we had it and even the final year's mortgage breakdown summary - but the latter is quite basic and only shows the actual payments we made.

    Is it actually worth pursuing it to just see where we stand?

    We have always banked with Abbey / Santander, so they should have our details easily to hand.

    We're novices at this BTW.

    You have no evidence that a policy ever existed.

    Or, if you did have it, who sold it to you.

    Or, that it was missold.

    Your case does not seem at all persuasive at present.
    Apparently telling somebody you are an IFA or mortgage adviser in your signature is not advertising and permitted. Telling somebody you are a compliance consultant and complaint investigator is advertising and not permitted - even if there is no indication of how to get in touch. So I am not going to tell you that I am!

    The PPI policy would have been separate to the mortgage. Your payments would have been monthly instalment + MPPI premium.

    Hi
    My other half had ppi on our Abbey mortgage which we held for 5years we were sold this by an advisor in our local branch when applying for our mortgage, my husband had a previous medical condition before we started this policy but the advisor did not explain that this would be excluded if he needed to claim. I think that he did claim on the policy for approx 6 months due to a back injury I am just wondering if it would be worth putting a claim into Santander for mis selling even though he has claimed on policy, any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    What do mean finding out where you stand?

    Not necessarily. Unlike other forms of PPI, MPPI is usually a standalone product paid apart from the debt. That is one of the reasons there are so few complaints about MPPI as it is typically set up correctly (had loan PPI been set up that way then there wouldnt be this issue now)
