The average amount of commission paid was 67%*

The Supreme Court found that the lender’s failure to disclose this commission created an unfair relationship under the Consumer Credit Act. The court stated that where so much commission was being paid to intermediaries a reasonable person would be bound to question whether the PPI represented value for money or, whether they would have taken it out at all.

As a result of the judgement in Plevin, you may be able to recovery the commission that was paid in association with the sale of PPI, even if you have had a PPI claim rejected or missed the PPI deadline.


Why no deadline?

In a case in the High Court called Canada Square Operations Ltd v Potter, the borrower only discovered a commission of 95.24% on a PPI policy, eight years after the loan agreement ended. Canada Square accepted that its relationship with the borrower had been unfair but argued that there had been no duty to disclose the commission and so there was an absence of deliberate concealment.

However, the High Court judge said Canada Square had made a deliberate decision not to do something in circumstances where it was obvious that the existence of the commission would not be discovered for some time and that was good enough to have earned the borrower an extension of time for bringing the proceedings. This enables access to justice for thousands more individuals with an ‘unfair relationship’ claim with their lender even if the end of the credit agreement is beyond the six-year limitation period.
