The government e-petition, launched as part of our Make Claims Firms pay campaign, went live earlier this week and has already gained the support of over 100 people in the industry.
Our petition says that claims firms should be forced to pay a £500 fee to the Financial Ombudsman Service for every claim of mis-selling against a broker or financial adviser that is deemed to be without merit.
Now, Mortgage Strategy is calling upon its readers to spread the word through Twitter, Facebook and word of mouth in order to bring us closer to our goal of 100,000 signatures, which would see the petition considered for debate in the House of Commons.
The campaign is gaining momentum as the industry gets behind it, but we can’t do it all on our own – we need your help.
So tell your colleagues, BDMs and everyone you know in the industry to sign our petition and make claims firms pay.
