Most people have heard of PPI and many will also know that the deadline for making a PPI claim was August 2019. However, that is not the end of the story for people who were mis sold PPI and not then end of the opportunity to recover compensation for products that were mis sold to them.
Following a legal case in which Mrs Plevin successfully sued the broker who arranged a PPI product for her, it has become apparent that in many cases, PPI products sold to customers contained high levels of secret commissions paid to the policy arranger. The Financial conduct Authority (FCA) has stated that in their opinion, when that level of commission was 50% or more of the product price, that created an unfair contractual relationship. In many cases, the level of commission paid was well over 70% of the product price.
