    PPI Claim help/advise

    PPI Claim help/advise 5th Dec 17 at 11:08 AM
    Hi,

    So back between 2002 - 2005 I took out 3 loans with HSBC.


    • £2000 with PPI of £380 with interest £522
    • £2500 with PPI of £439 with interest £542
    • £6500 with PPI of £1601 with interest £2188.48


    I used the 2nd loan to repay the first loan, then 3rd loan to repay the 2nd etc. I then defaulted on the last one this went to collections and I ended up paying this off with a collection agency. Activ Kapital I believe. Maybe like 5 years ago.

    Young me wasn't very good with money. Thankfully I got myself together and haven't missed a repayment on anything in over 8 years.

    Anyhow I recently moved and found all my old loan agreements hence how I know the exact amounts. My question is, since this got sold to a debt collection agency am I able to recoup my PPI?

    I thought I would find out; so sent off a form with one of this PPI firms who have come back and said they can't process any claim since HSBC have different details and want me to go in branch as my signature and details were different to what they have on record.

    I've since done some research and found PPI firms are pointless as I can do the claim myself, HSBC have sent me a form asking me to go in with ID so they can process my claim.

    My question is if I go in with my details and all my old forms could I end up owing them money for defaulting all that time ago? Would they process my claim without having to go through a PPI firm? And can anyone give any advice on how to proceed or where I would stand?

    Thanks in advance.

    If the account was settled or is statute barred, then no.

    If it wasn't, and it's not statute barred, yes.

    If it's settled but you didn't repay it all, any redress will go towards the debt.

    They don't process your claim. They investigate your complaint.

    I'm sorry I don't understand your responce entirely.

    The loans weren't settled or statute barred as I started making repayments 2 years later in 2007.

    However at this time the loan had been sold to Aktiv Kapital.

    I repayed this loan in full so at this point their is no debt.

    The first two loans were repayed in full however so these should still full under HSBC umbrella. and hopefully be claimable. Obviously minus early repayments degating some of the interest.

    I'm just not sure if I can claim PPI on a loan that was sold to a debt agency. Since technicly when I payed that off it was included in the amount I owed as a lump sum.

    A PPI complaint will not re-activate the old debt. However any monies (interest etc) which were written off would be very likely off set against any PPI redress you might win.

    Your PPI complaint is a very strong one, by the way. You had PPI front-loaded onto a consolidation chain of loans. Paid back as a single premium to attract extra interest.

    So, I'd advise you to give it a go. Even if the redress is offset you may still get a payout..

    You shouldn't under any circumstance use a Claim Firm. If your redress is offset, you'd still owe the firm their full fee.

    Reclaimed ppi for my brother. He had two loans from before 2007. He managed to pay them off recently. Decided to reclaim them now as deadline was looming. Natwest & nationwide refunded close to £3000 of which half is interest. More than we hoped. GO FOR IT. Went direct to banks. Easy process even with limited docs.

    If you have signed anything with the claims company, then you will owe them money if you complain now, as complain yourself or not, they are still entitled to their cut.
