Full details of any product we may arrange for you, for example the minimum duration of the product, information on the right to cancel or whether no right to cancel arises, and any other early termination rights and penalties, will be covered in the relevant product disclosure information you will receive before the conclusion of the contract.
Share to Buy Ltd is not permitted to handle clients’ money and we cannot accept a cheque made out to us or handle cash, unless it is in respect of a fee payable to Share to Buy ltd.
Any products we have arranged for you, will not be kept under review. However, we may contact you in the future by means of an unsolicited promotion should we wish to contact you concerning a product or service which we feel may be of interest to you.
You or we may terminate our relationship at any time without penalty.
We are covered by the Financial Services Compensation scheme. You may be entitled to compensation from the scheme if we cannot meet our obligations. This depends on the type of business and the circumstances of the claim. Further information about compensation arrangements is available from the Financial Services compensation Scheme.
We maintain professional indemnity as required by the FCA for the purposes of protecting our clients from serious loss arising from professional negligence on the part of Share to Buy Ltd. This cover is maintained in addition to any other protective arrangements that may be provided.
You have no right to cancel a regulated mortgage contract once concluded other than by redemption; however, you may cancel a mortgage application at any time; you will be informed of any charges for cancellation before your application is submitted. To cancel an application you should write to or email Share to Buy Ltd. at P.O. Box 11998, Sudbury CO10 3BS. If you have requested and paid for a valuation, home buyers or structural survey, which has already been completed when your request to cancel is received, the fees for the survey will not be returned. Any other sums received will be returned within 30 days of receipt of your notification to cancel.
In most cases you can exercise a right to cancel, by withdrawing from the contract purchased though us. In general terms you will normally have a 30 day cancellation period for a life policy and a 14 day cancellation period for all other policies. The start of the cancellation period will normally begin, for pure protection policies, when you are informed that the contract has been concluded or, if later, when you receive the contractual terms and conditions.
