The Steps To Claiming A Refund

Claiming a refund against a mis-sold loan or financial service can seem a daunting task. A claims professional can support you throughout the process and maximise your chances of succeeding. On this site, we have made the process clear, simple and easy to understand.

We understand and acknowledge that irresponsible lending is not fair and we are here to help correct that injustice. Millions have been paid out to customers of lenders who have been mis-sold loans. If you have an unaffordable loan, we can complain and ask for interest to be removed from your balance. If the loan has been settled, you can ask for a refund of the interest you paid.

 

When using representation the process can be very simple...

Step 3: Once a response from your lender is received regarding your complaint, this will be communicated to you with an appropriate course of action- for example, accepting the claim or asking the Financial Ombudsman to review it, if required. You should receive a response to your complaint between 8 and 12 weeks after submitting it. After your claim is accepted by your lender, the refund will be transferred into your account or a balance reduction applied to your account.

Reclaimed funds to be Transferred

After a claim is successful, the redress money is transferred to you.

You do not need to use a claims management company to make your complaint to your lender. If your complaint is not successful you can refer it to the Financial Ombudsman Service yourself for free.

Unaffordable Lending

The main reason for redress in the UK is unaffordable lending. Unaffordable lending means lending that the borrower could not reasonably afford at the time it was taken out. Lending money without checking affordability is known as irresponsible lending. If you were only able to repay your high-cost loans by juggling other loans or credit cards to get through the month, then your lender may not have made appropriate checks.

According to Chapter 5 of The Financial Conduct Authority Sourcebook:

“The firm must consider the customer’s ability to make repayments under the agreements without failing to make any other payment the customer has a contractual or statutory obligation to make, and​ without the repayments having a significant adverse impact on the customer’s financial situation."

If you are struggling with living costs then Citizens Advice give guidance on how you can manage your situation here.

Signs that your loan(s) may have been unaffordable include:

You frequently consolidated loans or borrowed shortly after repaying a loan

-

Your loans from a single lender were regularly increasing in size

-

You missed some repayments

-

You made some repayments late

-

The loan repayment was a substantial part of your disposable income

-

You were using one form of debt to fund another.
