Exceptional circumstances

Although the deadline has now passed, there may be exceptional circumstances where you are able to complain. Please visit for more information.

MPPI - an overview

MPPI is a type of insurance policy designed to protect your loan repayments in the event you become unable to work due to accident, sickness or unemployment. In the event of a successful claim, your insurer would make monthly repayments on your mortgage until you were able to make the payments again, or until the maximum payments under the policy were made.

Did Skipton offer MPPI on its mortgages?

Yes, we used to offer MPPI, sometimes called Accident, Sickness and Unemployment cover (ASU). The monthly MPPI premium would be paid alongside the monthly mortgage payment. No interest was charged on the insurance premium where payment was made on the due date and the policy could generally be cancelled at any time.
