I don't expect it to be like a legal statute of limitations where being even one day late can stop a court case. The purpose of the one year time limit was to stop people coming back after 5 years and submitting a claim.
ptsb allowed appeals well beyond the deadline and I expect that AIB will as well.
So download the form and send it off to BDO with a letter asking for it to be admitted.
I didn’t think I get my appeal in on time but I did in the end, before I applied for an extension I received a letter today stating I have an extension until end of May but my appeal was in 2 days before the ending date I registered posted the appeal and have confirmation BDO received just hope my appeal won’t be left on the long finger ?
I am just wondering if you could give me some advice. I am one of the aib mortgage holders who received a letter last March (March 16th 2018) with a cheque for €1615 as compensation surrounding the issue of not being offered a tracker rate mortgage on expiration of my fixed rate.
I understand the cut off was 12months from the date of the letter to appeal and I have missed this deadline. Do you think I still have time to apply to appeal? I had a new baby 4 months ago and moved to a new home 5 months ago - things have been hectic and I am only coming out of the fog now! If you think I still could appeal, does the fact that I have sold my home and closed my mortgage account related to the redress issue impact the appeal?
Thanks for all your help and advice on this forum - reading through and it's so helpful
Just an update. I rang AIB and they are sending out an appeals pack. I spoke to BDO also and I have to write a letter explaining my extenuating circumstances as to why I missed the March 16th deadline and they will review my request for an extension.
I’m new to this forum and just read through all your posts regarding this matter.
Unfortunately, I have missed the deadline for appeal as I’ve had other distractions with a baby and two other kids and caring for my sick mum.
Do you think it’s too late to submit an appeal? Do you think if I downloaded an form from here and attach a letter requesting an extension they might accept it?
I’m ex AIB staff and not sure if that makes a difference to the appeals etc
