Was my mother ill advised to keep insurance after repaying mortgage?

Nationwide insists policy was ‘non-advised’ – so best she cancel it and cut her losses

In 1998 my mother took out a mortgage with Nationwide and at the same time purchased an insurance policy to ensure she was covered in the event that she died before the mortgage was paid off. In 2004, she paid off the mortgage. She asked at the time about the mortgage insurance, assuming this would cease. However, she was told by an adviser at Nationwide that she could “use this as life insurance”.

Subsequently, Legal & General took over Nationwide’s policies in this area. In 2012, my mother received a letter from L&G informing her she was paying a “mortgage reducing policy”. On further investigation she was told this would only pay out if she had a mortgage – which she had not had since 2004. L&G then wrote to her in December 2012 confirming she had an insurance policy but that it would only be valid while her mortgage lasted.

It seems my mother was ill advised in 2004 when she paid off her mortgage. Surely the mortgage protection insurance should have ended at this point? What did the adviser mean about “being able to use it as life insurance”? PF, London

Both the Financial Ombudsman Service and Which? say they have seen an increasing number of complaints about banks pushing unsuitable products on to older people – this seems to be one such case.

Your mother was sold a mortgage decreasing term assurance policy at her Nationwide branch in May 2003, five years after she had taken out her mortgage. The policy started in November 2003 to last for 15 years for the sum assured of £15,000.

According to you, when she went into the branch it was to ask about an entirely different product, so we can only imagine sales staff saw that as an excuse to sell her something else.

Your mother paid off her mortgage the year after the policy was taken out but even if she hadn’t, you say you and your brother were in a position to meet the remaining cost of your mother’s home loan should she have died – so she didn’t really need the product in the first place.

The information she was given about using the policy as life insurance, however, is right as the policy will continue to provide cover even if the mortgage is repaid early. So the policy she has will pay out until November 2018 if your mother dies. But as it is a decreasing term assurance the sum that would be paid out reduces each year, so if a claim was made on it in the next five years her dependants are unlikely to receive very much.

Nationwide is sticking to the fact that this was a “non advised” sale, which essentially means it made no recommendation but merely gave your mother information about the product. There is often a fine line in our view between advised and non-advised sales, but if your mother concurs that the sale was non-advised it might be hard to argue a case of mis-selling to the Financial Ombudsman Service.

The best we can advise is that your mother cancel her policy and cut her losses.
