Mis-sold Mortgage Endowments

What is an Endowment Mortgage?

This is an interest-only mortgage linked to an investment product. Most consumers who bought one were told that the policy would eventually pay off the mortgage at the end of its term and provide an additional lump sum. However millions of people now have a shortfall with no lump sum, in many cases, an endowment product’s return was insufficient to pay the outstanding mortgage.
