Miscalculated Mortgages With Skipton Building Society

Miscalculated Mortgages With Skipton Building Society

If you currently have a mortgage with the Skipton Building Society and have held it since 2009, our research shows that there is a significant chance your mortgage borrowing has been miscalculated – Substantially more so if you have ever slipped into arrears.

The oldest and now the fourth biggest building society in Britain, The Skipton, in common with other building society rivals, decided to shake off their stuffy but audit-driven values and instead adopt an aggressive expansion policy. This has seen some incredible own goals.

Since the turn of the century, we have seen data protection breaches, disastrous sub-prime lending via Amber Home Loans, the reneging of a standard variable rate promise to borrowers and a huge benefits and subsequent exit package paid to a former CEO. It was after all this, topped off with a £30 million “hidden” loss at Call Credit and the purchasing of a new computer system from a near bankrupt company, that the Skipton then had to bail out.

It’s little wonder that our audits have shown consistent calculation errors in mortgage lending at Skipton Building Society.

If you have had a mortgage with the Skipton since 2009 and initially borrowed more than £100k, we are currently offering a free mortgage audit. We can also look at former Skipton mortgages too, providing they were opened after 2000, the initial amount borrowed was more than £100k and the mortgage was held for more than 7 years.

For more information on how to receive our entirely free mortgage audit, please contact Beat the Banks on 01382 200474 or for free on 0800 193 1234. Or if you live locally, why not simply pop into our office with any of your mortgage paperwork and we can start the audit process immediately. Our hours are 8am-8pm weekdays, except for Fridays when we close at 6pm. On Saturdays it 10am-2pm.

  • Mrs C, Glasgow

    “From beginning to end, Beat the Banks have been very efficient. I am very pleased with the service from Jenna and the team. I am highly delighted and I have been recommending all of my friends.”

  • Shona, Dundee

    “Huge thank you to the team. After attempting to claim PPI myself and getting absolutely nowhere, I got Beat the Banks involved and ended up getting  £12,000. What a result. Beat the Banks made it so easy and were committed right to the end.”

  • Mr A McQuillian

    “From previous experience of PPI claim companies, I was a bit dubious if anyone could help me but I thought I would try Beat The Banks. To say I am pleased with the service and conclusion to my claim is an understatement. Beat the banks and my claim handler in particular handled all aspects of the claim from Clydesdale Bank with professionalism, courtesy, and efficiency to secure a positive result on my behalf. I would certainly recommend the services of Beat the Banks to anyone who thinks they have PPI claim, especially with the Clydesdale Bank.”

  • Mrs S, Falkirk

    “I was apprehensive about using a company to claim my PPI as I had previously responded to a “cold call” and was pestered with calls. I heard about Beat The Banks on a local radio station and because they were based in Scotland I felt comfortable approaching them. I have had a very positive experience with Beat The Banks. They are not pushy and answer any queries timeously. All the Agents I have spoken to were knowledgeable, polite and friendly. After the initial information gathering conversation, they understood my needs and just got on with my claim. No hassle. Even when it was clear that my claim was of a relatively low value they processed without delay. I would definitely recommend using Beat The Banks …. they put all the other companies out there to shame.”

  • T & A, Dundee

    “Down entirely to Mike’s hard work, we previously had a successful claim with Clydesdale Bank. Mike was convinced we had more loans with PPI and he was relentless in efforts to recover our paperwork from the bank. Finally, after many attempts, enough records were recovered to submit several claims. We have now received much more compensation, covering loans going back many, many years. If it had not been for Mike and the team at Beat the Banks this would never, ever have happened. Literally, all we did was sign our name and bank the cheque.”

  • Mr & Mrs M, Shetland

    “We really appreciate the doggedness and professionalism of Jenna and the team at Beat the Banks. This is something we’d never have gotten round to doing and we’re so glad we went through the process with professionals as we’ve now had great results. Only positives have come from the experience.”

  • Mrs S, Falkirk

    “Excellent service so helpful, I received a substantial sum back that I had no idea I was due, thank you again to Beat The Banks especially to Gary who was so helpful and efficient in every way.”

  • Dave & Linda , Dundee

    “We had no paperwork but £52,500 reasons to say thank you, we are now living our Spanish dream! Exceptional service.”

  • Mr S, Dingwall

    “Have just found out I have won all my cases with the bank, going back many years and been awarded compensation of just over £15,000!”
