Do I take this further ?

7 replies 212 views
I put in a claim for PPI on a old mortgage. It was in joint names with my husband.
when I put in the PPI claim it was with just my name I did put his name on the form they sent me to fill out.
They came bk today rejecting it.
They said “whilst we do acknowledge that there may have been flaws in our sales process. I am not persuaded that any of these sales failings would have effected your decision to take out the PPI policy.
my husband was in the navy at the time abd was paid full wages if off work sick or injured ect and we did tell them we didn’t need the ppi but because I worked part time they said we wouldn’t get the mortgage other wise ect.
Anyway they say that because I had said that husband would pay the mortgage even if I was off work sick they say they have not seen any evidence from time of sales to indicate that this was actually the case ( don’t know what they mean by that the mortgage payments ect were all paid out out of my husbands own bank account all the time )
they go on to say we do not consider that financial assistance from family is in itself a creditable strategy for customers to guarantee that they are able to maintain repayment. But my husband is on the PPI policy.
Do I take this further to the Ombudman?

    It's really up to you. 

    Note that most mortgage PPI complaints are rejected and that mortgage PPI is still available even today because it protects  probably the largest and most important loan in your lifetime..

    But you might as well because they can only say yes or no.

    I had a mortgage with Chelsea building society, and I got over £5000 PPI refund

    Yes, but as above, most complaints are rejected, not all. Your situation has no bearing on the OPs situation

    I was just trying to give her a bit of hope! Feeling rather under attack here, this forum never used to be like this

    How do you know most complaints are rejected? Have you any evidence of this or is it just your personal view?
