What can I do with my cheque?
You can lodge your cheque. Lodging it will not affect your right to make an appeal, to make a complaint to the Financial Services and Pensions Ombudsman or pursue this matter through the Courts. You are not required to apply any of your payment amount to 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 amount.
Personal representatives of deceased borrowers
Where we are aware of the personal representative of a deceased borrower we have also sent them a letter along with a payment instruction form. Click here for more about the identification documents that personal representatives will need to provide before the cheque will issue to them.
Do I have the right to appeal the redress and/or compensation?
Yes, you have the right to appeal the actions we have taken to correct our failure.
What can I appeal?
You can appeal any aspect of redress and compensation within 12 months from the date on your letter in which the bank made its offer of redress and/or compensation. Our decisions on the level of redress and compensation due to customers are based on the information available to us in our review of your account. As part of the appeals process you can include any additional material financial information which you would like to have considered.
Who will hear my appeal?
All appeals are heard by a fully independent appeals panel in accordance with the Terms of Reference and Procedural Rules of the appeals panel.

How do I begin an appeal?
Customers who received a compensation letter can request an appeals application pack. To request this pack, please contact the helpline number provided in your letter. This pack will give you more details about the overall appeals process. Customers who decide to appeal will need to complete the appeal application pack and return it (together with any supporting documents relevant to their appeal) to the address set out in the form.
