Not sure if this is in the right section or if it has already been posted, I could not find it here? Mods please move to wherever it should be.
Applies to most mortgage lenders not just Abbey. If you have switched or repaid your mortgage in the past 5 years you have probably been overcharged & can now claim that back. Just phone the lender & ask, some will sort on the phone, others (including Abbey) ask you to complete a simple form. Just google MEAF "mortgage exit administration fee" for more details.
Amount you may have been overcharged varies from one lender to another, but well worth the cost of a local call if you get a couple of 100 quid back.
includes but not limited to the following:
A&L = £295
Woolwich = £275
B&B = £235
C&G = £225
Halifax = £225
I was told about this by a mate at one of the banks then found full details on MSE (have not linked to it as I do not know if you allow links to "rival" deal sites :) )
