Financial Mis-selling Lawyers & Mis-selling Solicitors and Mis-selling Lawyers
Summerfield Browne Solicitors are authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority.
Many people are familiar with the mis-selling of PPI, but are not aware they have may been mis-sold a mortgage, endowment or other financial product. Examples of financial mis-selling include:
Being advised to borrow money without proving your income and/ or overstating your income.
Being advised to switch lenders but were not told about the fees and penalties involved.
Being advised to take a mortgage where the end date is after your retirement date.
Not being told about the commission your adviser would receive from the lender.
Not being told how your money would be invested and/ or the risks involved with the investment.
The product differed from your needs or attitude to risk that you disclosed to your adviser.
Our mis-selling lawyers can evaluate your situation and determine whether there could be grounds for a claim.
Another example of financial mis-selling might occur where a bank sells packaged bank accounts, which include travel insurance, breakdown cover and mobile phone protection, but you may not have been given a choice about whether you wanted the packaged account and associated fees. The bank should have evaluated your personal and financial circumstances when it sold a packaged bank account. It should have offered you various account options, and not just a packaged account. Our financial mis-selling solicitors can ask your bank to refund the account fees with interest for packaged accounts you did not know you had or needed.
What is Mis-selling?
Investments are mis-sold when you are not told how your money would be invested, or you have not been told about the risks involved.
If a financial product didn’t suit your needs, or attitude to risk that you discussed with your financial adviser, then you may have been mis-sold a financial product. Before taking your matter to a mis-selling lawyer, make sure you ask for a copy of the financial firm’s internal complaint process, and if appropriate make a complaint. All financial firms should have this readily available, either on their website or in their agreement with you.
In order to fairly treat consumers, firms must make sure they are selling and marketing products and services that are tailored to the needs of the consumer groups they serve. If you require assistance on making a complaint our mis-selling lawyers can advise you further.
