George Banco Compensation
Guarantor lender George Banco has “one of the fastest loan applications, with an immediate decision and same day payout” and is all online.
George Banco rose to prominence as a guarantor loan lender and on 17 August 2017 was acquired by a fellow sub-prime lender Non-Standard Finance PLC for £53.5m.
Whilst it is quick to offer UK consumers to borrow from £1,000 to £15,000 over 1-5 years, George Banco may have lent your money without conducting the correct affordability checks which form part of the FCA’s requirements for the entire Guarantor Loan Market in Britain, which has come under the spotlight in recent months and not in a positive way.
The Citizens Advice said more than 3,000 people sought help with guarantor debt, as well as the market, being a focus of a Panorama documentary, highlighting the raise of high-cost credit in the UK.
In their latest numbers, The Financial Ombudsman upheld 51% of complaints against George Banco Limited.

Why could I Claim a George Banco 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. George Banco should have checked your credit record and ensured you had a regular, consistent income before giving you a loan.

How Much Will I Receive If My Claim Is Successful?
If you successfully claim a refund from a lender, you can claim back the interest and charges on your loans, plus, typically, 8% statutory interest. For more information on how this is calculated click here.
What Information Do I Need to Provide?
You just need to provide the name of your lender and your personal details including the address that you lived at when registering with them. Once you have given these we can obtain details of any loans where a refund may be due.
How much will I be charged?
Claiming through us always works on a no win no fee basis, meaning you won't pay a thing unless you win compensation. You will have the right to cancel the agreement within 14 days with no penalty. If you cancel after 14 days you may be charged for work done up until the time of cancellation. We use multiple partners to ensure we are able to offer claims against all lenders, from whom we receive payments. The exact fee structure will depend on which lender you are claiming against, as this decides which of our partners is most suitable for your claim. A breakdown of our fee structure can be seen here. The fees for Diesel Emissions Claims are calculated differently due to it being a group action lawsuit.
