You could be owed money from Alliance & Leicester due to mis-sold PPI. Find out how to start your PPI claim now before it’s too late.
Alliance and Leicester was one of the many banks involved in the PPI mis-selling scandal. Thousands of customers are owed compensation for Payment Protection Insurance (PPI) policies that were sold to them without their knowledge or consent.
But consumers must start their PPI claim as soon as possible because the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has announced a deadline for claiming mis-sold PPI. All claims must be made by 29th August 2019. Any claims submitted after this date will not be eligible for refunds. It’s only nine months until the deadline and banks are likely to be much busier in 2019. To ensure you’re not lost in the shuffle, swift action is needed.
In 2008, Alliance and Leicester were bought out by Santander. However, even after the buyout, it is still possible to make a PPI claim against the bank. To date, the banks have collectively paid over £32 billion to consumers for mis-sold PPI. Over 64 million PPI policies were sold. This means if you had a loan, mortgage or credit card before 2010, it’s likely you also had PPI.
