Miscalculated Mortgages With Yorkshire Building Society

Miscalculated Mortgages With Yorkshire Building Society

Our research has highlighted a significant number of mortgage miscalculations from the Yorkshire Building Society in recent years. We’ve helped a number of our customers to find the justice they deserve after they unwittingly overpaid money for a prolonged period. Companies such as the Yorkshire should never have allowed this to happen, and should have ensured there were systems in place to prevent any such wrongdoings.

If you took out a mortgage with the Yorkshire before 2010 of at least £100,000, there’s a very real chance that your repayments will have been miscalculated. Here at Beat the Banks, we offer a free mortgage audit, one that delves deep into the repayment history in a bid to ascertain whether errors occurred. We do all the leg work, and all you have to do is get in touch initially on 0800 193 1234.

The Yorkshire Building Society is now one of the largest in the UK, but initially it was known for slow growth and a somewhat old-fashioned approach. When it finally became involved in the lending boom in the early 2000s, it did so with an aggressive approach that brought in a significant slice of the lending marking. Unfortunately for many customers, the Yorkshire’s processes and procedures simply couldn’t keep up.

Too many mistakes over too long a time period

More recently, the Yorkshire has followed a steady growth strategy that has seen it take over a number of other building societies along the way, such as the Barnsley, the Chelsea and the Norwich & Peterborough. In 2011, the Yorkshire also bought the Egg savings and mortgage business for a whopping £2.5 billion.

Like many other lenders, the Yorkshire fought hard for a share of the market during the boom, and like many others it seems to have miscalculated mortgage payments for a large number of clients over a long period of time. These errors could have ended up costing you a lot, far more than you may perhaps have imagined, and the truth is they should not be allowed to get away with it.

The specialists at Beat the Banks have a great deal of experience of working in the banking industry, and we use our knowledge to mount tenacious, robust claims for justice. If you’d like to find out more about what we can do for you, simply complete the contact form or give us a call on 0800 193 1234. We’re looking forward to seeing what we can do to help.

  • 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.”

    “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!”
