Yorkshire Building Society Mortgage Plevin PPI Claim

Yorkshire Building Society Mortgage Plevin PPI ClAIm

IT'S NOT THE END OF PPI CLAIMS

PPI has been the biggest financial mis-selling scandal in the world, in which a staggering £38 billion was given back to consumers for mis-sold PPI in compensation by banks & finance providers before the 2019 PPI deadline. However, even after this the PPI scandal is far from over!

The good news is that you can still make new PPI Claims under a new ruling but this time its for undisclosed high commission. This type of PPI claim is separate to the PPI redress scheme that ended in 2019 and is based on the amount of commission you were charged on your PPI policy.

Potter v Canada Square - Latest ruling April 2021

The case of Canada Square Operations Limited v Beverley Potter [2020] brought a degree of clarity to the issue of limitation points in Plevin Litigation. This judgment was welcomed by law firms, claims management companies and claimants alike as it strengthened the claimants’ argument that these claims should not have a limitation period applied to them due to the concealment of PPI commission levels. This meant that claims are no longer confined to a six-year limitation period from when your credit card/loan/mortgage or other finance ended.

About Yorkshire Building Society

The Yorkshire Building Society was established in 1854, with their head office in Bradford, West Yorkshire. They are the third largest building society in the UK, having merged with the Chelsea Building Society in 2010.

The building society offers a range of financial products and services. This includes savings, insurance and investment products as well as mortgages.

To be eligible for a mortgage from Yorkshire Building Society applicants must be 18+, a UK resident on the electoral register, mortgage property must be in he UK and where you intend to live.

Mortgage applications were typically made over the phone or in branch, and there were a variety of mortgage types offered, including: Fixed rate , Remortgages, Tracker, Offset and Buy-to-let.

PPI was often sold with mortgages and with the average commission charged at 67%, you may also have been charged a high level of commission on your PPI premium(s). If this wasn't disclosed you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation under a ruling known as the 'Plevin' ruling as this constitutes an unfair relationship. However before making any claim for commission, it is important to find out the level of commission you were charged on your PPI policy premium(s)
Yorkshire Building Society also caters for customers in the personal sectors, with an extensive range of other financial products such as, current accounts, loans, credit cards and insurance.

What is Plevin PPI?

Plevin refers to a Supreme Court case from November 2014 where Mrs Susan Plevin brought a case against Paragon Personal Finance Ltd regarding her PPI policy. The claim was centred around the commission charges on a PPI policy that Mrs Susan Plevin was sold to cover a secured loan from Paragon.

Mrs Plevin later discovered that in small print of the terms and conditions of the PPI policy that a whopping 71.8% of her premium was the amount of commission she was charged by the lender. She alleged that this was unfair and unclear and took Paragon to court and the case went up to the Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court agreed with Mrs Plevin and her lawyers, and determined that the sale of the PPI policy was unfair because of the following reasons:

  1. The commission payment was not disclosed;
  2. The high percentage of the PPI premium that was paid as commission.

This decision set precedent for a new category of PPI claims, and opened the floodgates against banks and other finance firms who had sold PPI to their customers.

With around 64 Million PPI Polices Sold Between 1990 and 2010 there is a significantly high chance that you are eligible for a refund.

How is Plevin different to mis-sold PPI?

Originally the PPI scandal was focused on the mis-selling of PPI and whether the policy was suitable or not at the point of sale. however a Plevin PPI claim's focus is on whether Yorkshire Building Society took a high-level commission from your mortgage PPI premium(s) without telling you about it. If  the commission was hidden, or the commission was unfairly high, then this is deemed to be an unfair relationship between the lender and borrower and is eligible for compensation claim.

Plevin claims are based on a completely different area of law, namely the Consumer Credit Act 1974, so they are not subject to the FCA's PPI deadline, hence claims are still being processed today.

Claiming under the Plevin ruling

You could be eligible to make a claim if:

  • Your PPI policy was open after 6 April 2007;
  • You have not previously complained about Mis-sold PPI to Yorkshire Building Society;
  • Your PPI Claim was previously rejected by Yorkshire Building Society;
  • Yorkshire Building Society only refunded you for the “Plevin only” part of your PPI (also known as a “tipping point offer”)
    The Plevin ruling means that if more than 50% of your PPI’s cost went to hidden commission to the lender, or the lender and the broker combined, and it was not sufficiently explained to you, you are due compensation.

Had PPI with your Yorkshire Building Society Mortgage?

A recent ruling means simply being sold payment protection insurance (PPI) means you're potentially a victim of a mis-selling. Although the PPI deadline has now passed you could still claim PPI compensation from Yorkshire Building Society. Find out how below.

This is why many Yorkshire Building Society customers are checking their accounts to find out if they had PPI and whether they could be eligible to make to commission claim under the Plevin ruling.

Latest PPI Commission Claim Ruling

Potter has the potential to impact on all types of credit claims!

A new PPI court ruling in April 2021 revealed how the banks used YOUR MONEY to earn hefty commissions for themselves.

Strangely, they forgot to mention the secret commissions they kept when the original PPI rulings came out.

Now the courts have said that any commission they have earned by selling PPI policies is potentially YOURS.

This ruling saw the complainant awarded £7,953.53 in compensation for the commission alone. This includes fees and interest that accrued over the years.

And it’s estimated that other people who had PPI policies will be owed from £1000s in compensation.

Potter v Canada Square Case

In Potter v Canada Square, the Lender [Canada Square Operations Ltd, formerly Egg Banking plc] accepted that the non-disclosure of commission caused unfairness in the relationship; however, it defended the claim on the basis that it was issued outside the widely accepted six-year limitation period.

Mrs Potter’s legal team invoked Section 32 of the Limitation Act 1980, which extends the limitation period due to the deliberate concealment of commission levels by the lender.

What is Mortgage Payment Protection Insurance (MPPI)?

PPI was sold alongside a range of financial products including mortgages between late 80’s and 2010.

Mortgage payment protection insurance  (or ‘MPPI’) allows you to continue paying off your mortgage if you are no longer receiving a secure income. PPI  was attached to loans and other forms of credit such as mortgages, credit cards. catalogue accounts and even overdrafts. It was sold on to both consumers and businesses. With over 60 Million consumers sold Payment Protection Insurance there is significant change you could have been sold PPI if you took out a mortgage.

Even though the PPI claims deadline for mis-sold PPI has now passed, you can still check if there was commission paid to your bank or lender when you got your mortgage that you were not made unaware of by your bank or lender.

PPI took many different names so its well worth checking your mortgage statement, these include:

Accident, sickness and unemployment insurance (ASU)
Account cover
Credit insurance
Credit protection
Loan care
Loan insurance
Loan protection
Loan repayment insurance
Mortgage protection
Mortgage insurance
Mortgage repayment insurance
Mortgage payment protection insurance (MPPI)
Payment cover
Protection plan

Even though the PPI deadline has now passed, you can still check with your bank or lender if a high commission was paid to them with your policy premiums under Plevin ruling.  With around 64 millions policies sold between 1990 and 2010 there is a significantly high chance that you are eligible for a refund.
