However, because this is not happening yet some brokers do not even think about it.
When the payment protection insurance debacle rocked the industry, the clean-up operation was criticised for being too little too late. The phrase “shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted” was bandied about regularly. There was a shared understanding that both brokers and lenders should have had preventative measures in place and the situation should not have gotten as bad as it did.
Many brokers had tried to offer PPI correctly but got swept up in the backlash against the assumptive selling practices adopted by the banks. Many suffered, not because they had done anything...
