European Consumer Protection Law.
"Why is 2012 a pertinent year ?"
After the Financial crisis in 2008, when the mortgage market slowed down, it has been stated by a legal technology group that some lenders grew there revenue ( income ) by increasing the difference between there own borrowing costs and the rates they charged the customer.
In 2012 this policy was deemed to be unlawful under the European Consumer Protection Law. Lenders updated there terms & conditions to ensure they were compliant when a new mortgage was taken out, however, they could "not update" the terms on historical mortgages (pre 2012) and these payments can be investigated.
Millions of mortgages are taken out in the UK, unfortunately, many banks have not updated their systems to cope with the demand, and, with amalgamations of lenders and the acquiring of Banks to consume other lenders, it is no surprise errors have occurred that are not in line with the Terms & Conditions.
Aging computer systems are in need of continual maintenance, and, with many contractors' lack of core industry knowledge, it was inevitable that interest rate errors and overcharges would sooner or later transpire.
Mathematical logistics are the make-up of Mortgage payment calculations and a mistake or oversight can lead to the customer being overcharged on their mortgage account.
A Mortgage audit is a forensic investigation of your mortgage statements. If you have been a victim of overcharging the audit will unearth the overpayments made to the account.
These overpayments/charges can come in the form of miscalculated arrears payments, deliberately sustained high variable rate interest, excessive arrangement fees, or quite simply a computer error to name a few examples.
These payments are contrary to the terms & conditions offered with your mortgage and are a legal " Breach of Contract".
Many individuals get this type of claim confused with Mortgage "mis-selling", which is the advice given when recommending the mortgage, this is deemed as "negligence".
Mortgage "overcharging" is a totally different type of claim, where, a legal breach of contract has occurred and payments in addition to the agreement have been charged not in line with the terms & conditions.
