What can I do with my cheque?
You can lodge your cheque. Lodging it will not affect your right to make an appeal, complain to us, or to the Financial Services and Pensions Ombudsman or pursue this matter through the Courts. You are not required to apply any of your payment against your mortgage account.
Why did I receive a payment instruction form instead of a cheque?
A payment instruction form is most frequently issued where there are multiple parties to a loan living at different addresses. We need you to complete this form so that we know how you would like us to split your payment.
Personal representatives of deceased borrowers
Where we were aware of the personal representative of a deceased borrower, we also sent them a letter along with a payment instruction form. Click here for more about the identification documents that personal representatives need to provide to us before the cheque will issue to them.
Do I have the right to appeal the redress and compensation?
Yes, you have the right to appeal the actions we have taken to correct our failure. You can submit your appeal within 12 months of the date on the letter in which we provided full details of the redress and compensation payment.
What can I appeal?
