    Danske - package fees

    Danske - package fees 13th Mar 17 at 7:46 PM
    I always looked at all the posts about reclaiming on missold PPI's etc and thought it wouldnt apply to us as we never paid payment protection on any of our current loans - may have done on old car finance HP agreements - but no paperwork or recollection of the companies involved .
    Post came up on facebook tonight by MSE about bank charges!! - now we do pay these !!
    Pay £11 per month for our current a/c with Danske (Northern Ireland bank) and have done for many years - we were told it was the only way to get the mortgage that we currently have without incurring extra remortgage fees. Perks are free travel insurance, and free overdraft - which is rarely used but good as a back up I suppose.
    If I do go ahead and fill in the resolver form on the link - would this affect our mortgage - only have about four years left to pay and dont want the hassle of having to change it.

    Yes they will immediately cancel your mortgage and demand immediate full repayment.

    Yes actually.

    Yes. But, surely, if this money is being doled out left, right and centre, shouldn't we all have some? Why should it just be people who were missold PPI or packaged accounts? I've been a loyal customer for years, and, well.........I WANT SOME! NOW!
    I came into this world with nothing and I've got most of it left.

    I am not trying to con the bank out of fees - I was told that the only way I could remortgage - to add around £10k onto a £40k mortgage was to have this particular account for which I had to pay £11 per month - in our naivety we didnt think to question this. Up to you if you think this is genuine mis-selling or not, should we not have been given an option whereby we didnt need to pay a packaged fee.

    You did have an option - take your business elsewhere! You chose to accept Danske's condition for offering you the mortgage, what makes you think you can change your mind now?

    I agree if you were told that you had to have a packaged account to get the mortgage this is misselling unless the mortgage is only available to customers who hold that account
