4.2. Appeal Outcomes At 31 May, c. 3,300 customers had appealed to their lenders the original compensation offer they received.15 This represents c. 10 per cent of customers who have received payment. In respect of appeals lodged at end May, c. 1,800 appeal outcomes have been decided upon by Appeals Panels. Of the c. 1,800 appeals decided, 55 per cent have been upheld/partially upheld and 45 per cent have not been upheld. The majority of appeals upheld arise from awards for additional detriment of which the lender may not have been aware at the time of the original redress and compensation awarded. At 31 May 2019, Appeals Panels have awarded c. €7 million additional compensation to affected customers.

Chart 8 – Appeal Outcomes

3932


When they were paid their initial redress and compensation, affected customers were advised of the deadline for making an appeal. About 20 per cent of affected customers who have received payments of redress and compensation are still within the time period for making appeals if they so wish. It is again critical to stress that under the Framework, customers could accept the initial redress and compensation offered and still make an appeal

€7m additional compensation for 1,000 (55% of 1,800) customers or an average of €7,000 each.

1,000 customers out of 40,000 affected made successful appeals.

So what category do people who appealed but then the bank made a better offer. They were then asked do they accept and wish to withdraw their claim by the BDO. So technically they were not in the 1000 mentioned above as they still have the right to appeal again within one year.

Hi elcato

While I have heard of this happening, it wasn’t widespread so won’t affect the overall numbers
