What does this mean for me?

When did my Mortgage Loan transfer to Glenbeigh Securities / Pepper?

We wrote to you on 22 February 2019 to confirm that Glenbeigh Securities 2018 – 1 DAC (“Glenbeigh Securities”) had become the beneficial owner of your Loan. 

In that letter, we confirmed that as part of the securitisation transaction, Pepper Finance Corporation (Ireland) DAC, trading as Pepper Asset Servicing (“Pepper”) would shortly: (i) become the legal title holder of your Loan; and (ii) be appointed as the servicer of your Loan, no sooner than two months after the date of the letter (the “Transfer Date”)

I have not received any notification of the transfer – does this mean my Loan has not been transferred?

What is the relationship between Pepper and Glenbeigh Securities?

Glenbeigh Securities is the securitisation vehicle and is now the beneficial owner of your Loan. Glenbeigh Securities has appointed Pepper to service the Loan on behalf of Glenbeigh Securities. Pepper now holds the legal title to your Loan.

What regulations apply to my Loan now the Pepper Transfer has completed?

Like permanent tsb, Pepper is required to comply with the Consumer Protection Code (CPC) and the Code of Conduct for Mortgage Arrears (CCMA).

What is an NPL?

NPL stands for Non-Performing Loan. This is a regulatory classification which applies to Loans even where such Loans are meeting the terms of an agreed restructuring arrangement with permanent tsb. 

For this reason, Split Loans with a future warehouse amount due, as well as Part Capital and Interest Loans that have an outstanding principal sum due at the end of term, are both classified as NPL. 

What does Securitisation mean?

Securitisation is a financial transaction where assets (such as mortgages) are pooled together into one entity and the incomes generated from those assets are sold to third parties as securities.

The nature of this securitisation resulted in permanent tsb transferring a group of mortgage loans to Glenbeigh Securities. The sale, securitisation and transfer of your Loan is permitted under the terms and conditions of the Loan.

What is the difference between this securitisation and a Loan sale?

The nature of this securitisation, and the transfer of mortgage loans to Glenbeigh Securities is similar to a loan sale and the resultant impact on customers is that their loan is no longer serviced or owned by permanent tsb. 

On what basis can permanent tsb transfer my Loan?

The terms and conditions of your Loan permit permanent tsb to sell, securitise and transfer the Loan.
