If you are able to kindly provide me with the above further information or if you have any further questions generally, I will be delighted to expand on the following - please just reply back to me in this case:
Notwithstanding the above, in general terms it may be that a mortgage was mis-sold to you however, it is important to establish the basis of mis-selling in order to make a claim. For example, and I do not suggest this applies here, it is not sufficient to make a claim of mis-selling simply on the basis that one no longer likes a particular product or likes a position one finds oneself in. Rather, you need to be able to show that advice that was received was clearly wrong in the circumstances of the time. In relation to an interest only mortgage for example, this could be because your financial circumstances at the time gave you other options which were not offered to you which you could have availed yourself of if you have been made aware of them or you are not advised in relation to ensuring that you made some provision for paying off the interest only mortgage at the end of its term and this was an option for you. These can be examples of mis-selling.
I hope the above is of some assistance but if you have any further questions, please revert to me
