had various loans with HSBC that ppi was sold to me i was under the impession that if i did take out ppi my loan would be more favourably looked at also i was never told that i could get ppi from some other party. I have been paid out on my last loan witch i had paper work for but then i contacted them to say that i had previous loans that i paid ppi on but no paper work for as they were over 7 years ago. How do i get hold of my records for these
Hello, my name is***** am a solicitor on this site and it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. You may find it difficult to find records from your banks going back more than 6 years because they will only keep records for that period of time. Keeping records for 6 years is their legal obligation so they would not be required to keep paperwork older than that. As such if you have asked them for these records and they no longer have them you will probably find it impossible to get them as they would have been under no obligation to keep them. The usual way to get such records is to make a subject access request by contacting them and advising them you are making such a request and specifying what records you want copies of. However, if the records no longer exist, then obviously they cannot provide these and they would not have done anything incorrectly by not keeping them. Some people have found it very difficult or impossible to claim for PPI going back more than 6 years for these reasons.
