    does any one know if I can claim anything back

    If you borrow money, you pay interest on it. That is how it works. you cant claim back interest you pay on a mortgage.
    I have asked the financial ombudsman but they also told me I couldn't claim the ppi on it.

    PPi is a different issue but its unlikely Kensington have any liability to PPI as they are a broker lender.

    Claiming interest back is just a no go because it is normal to pay interest on what you borrow.

    yet the ppi company have contacted me and sed I can claim my ppi back on it after being told no off financial ombudsman.

    1 - did you pay PPI?
    2 - who sold you the PPI and when?

    I am sure the genuine PPI claims company also told you that most MPPI complaints get rejected by firms and the FOS and that it wouldn't be Kensington you complain to.

    In reality, it is likely that you are not paying back enough each month to bring the debt down any quicker. Plus, you are still in the early period of the mortgage and little is paid off in the early years.

    didn't borrow more

    Mortgages, like most loans work by you borrowing an amount of money. Each month they add the interest payment and you make a monthly payment to cover the interest payment plus a bit to reduce the amount outstanding.

    When you fail to make a monthly payment and go into arrears, the interest that is added to the mortgage does not go away. Your debt increases.

    You can ask them whatever you like. However, unless there is good reason to reduce the interest, they dont have to.

    You were the one that mentioned PPI. It is difficult to follow your posts as they lack punctuation and have poor grammar.

    It would be correct to charge interest on the money you owe, so no you wouldnt be able to claim it back.
    yet the ppi company have contacted me and sed I can claim my ppi back on it
    They will tell you anything you want to hear. Kensington are lender and dont sell anything direct to customers so you would need to complain to the mortgage broker if you felt it was mis-sold but I doubt they still trade.
    after being told no off financial ombudsman.
    You can only take a complaint to FOS after a complaint is made to the firm which it sounds like you havent done, so I dont understand why FOS have said no. Why did they say no?

    And i bet you have been paying 'arrears fee's ' charges of £50 a pop ?
    Despite what some 'Bank' defenders on this site will say you can
    reclaim these fee's. Just because these fees are in their T & C's does not
    mean they are legal indeed i would like to see Kensignton Mortgages
    defend a court action and justify these fees !

    No evidence that such fees existed.

    No apostrophe in "fees" either.

    Fees may be charged if they are a genuine reflection of the cost to the lender.

    Are you offering to bankroll such a case for the OP? Bear in mind that if she loses she could have the other party's costs awarded against her.

    Of course they can charge interest on arrears it will all be in the T&C'S You took out a loan agreed a payment every month and for what ever reason did not make those payments so broke the terms of the loan, the company did not get their money every month so debt did not go down, now you are paying the price, only way out is to increase the amount you pay every mouth to try to bring the debt down faster

    Would be interested to know the amount of arrear fees Kensington have charged you since the commencement of your mortgage. Also have a look at the following :-
