Mort­gage ad­vice un­der scru­tiny

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

A law firm which spe­cialises in pur­su­ing mis-sold pay­ment pro­tec­tion in­surance and credit card charges is now in­ves­ti­gat­ing mort­gage mis­de­meanours.

To date, Ash­worth Law has re­cov­ered in ex­cess of £15m on be­half of its clients, and it be­lieves it can have sim­i­lar suc­cess rep­re­sent­ing home­own­ers with mort­gage griev­ances.

Ash­worth Law co-founder Mathew Cob­ley says: “We be­lieve there are mil­lions of home own­ers who fall un­der the mis-sold mort­gage bracket.

“In the days when you could eas­ily get a mort­gage, some in­de­pen­dent fi­nan­cial ad­vis­ers – which are less well reg­u­lated than the banks and build­ing so­ci­eties – sold in­ap­pro­pri­ate loans to clients in or­der to gain larger, per­sonal com­mis­sion.”

He said the firm could judge if the wrong ad­vice was given by peo­ple fill­ing in a form on the com­pany’s web­site.

Fur­ther in­for­ma­tion is avail­able from Mathew Cob­ley at Ash­worth Law LDP on 0871 288 7020, or at www.ash­worth­law.co.uk
