Bamboo Loans is a high-cost lender that lends £1,000 to £5,000 for between 1 to 5 years. Their typical APR is 59.7%. This means for every £1,000 customers borrow for 5 years they repay £2,640.
As with all lenders, Bamboo should have carried out the correct checks before issuing a loan. If you found yourself unable to pay back the loan, you may be eligible for a loan refund.
Recently unfair practices that have been identified by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) have resulted in huge fines being imposed on many of the top lenders. If Bamboo has not carried out the correct checks and loaned responsibly, you could be entitled to a refund, even if you have paid off the loan.
In their latest numbers, The Financial Ombudsman upheld 56% of complaints against Bamboo's owner Bamboo Limited.

Why could I receive a Bamboo Loan Refund?
There are various reasons why you may be due a refund from a lender. The main reason for a claim is that the loan was unaffordable. These are general signs that the lender did not perform sufficient affordability checks:
The amount borrowed increased loan by loan without reassessing your situation
The loan was extended each month without reassessing your situation
You were struggling to pay essentials (rent, bills, food) because of my repayments
You had to borrow money from another lender to pay back a loan or cover essentials
Your income changed between taking out and repaying the loan but the lender didn’t check
The lender didn’t ask you any questions to confirm that I would be able to repay the loan in a sustainable way
You rolled over your loans
Even if during your application process, you did not mentioned all of your debts or stated your correct regular income. Bamboo Loans should have checked your credit record and ensured you had a regular, consistent income before giving you a loan.
