In 2018, Lending Stream received criticism that their TV advert did not clearly state their APR rate, with the ASA upholding a breach of ad rules and misleading advertising. This may be the reason you could request a Refund from Lending Stream.
Lending Stream has also been criticised for not making their complaints procedure easy, removing the ability for customers to submit a complaint via email. If you feel you have a claim, submit a Lending Stream Refund request today.

Can I Make A Claim Against Lending Stream?
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
The lender didn't check your credit record to confirm all your debts
The Lender didn't verify your stated income
Even if during your application process, you did not mentioned all of your debts or stated your correct regular income, Lending Stream should have checked your credit record and ensured you had a regular, consistent income before giving you a loan.
If any of the above statements describe your experience with a Lending Stream loan, you could be eligible to claim compensation. Start your claim below for professionals to guide you through the process.

How long does Lending Stream take to pay compensation?
The rules state that Lending Stream has 8 weeks to reply to a complaint, however sometimes lenders do go over this deadline. If the complaint needs to go to the Financial Ombudsman because Lending Stream is disputing it, then it takes more time for them to reach a decision. The time it takes for the lender or the Financial Ombudsman to come to decisions depends on the complexity of the case and how busy they are. Some people are lucky and get a claim accepted, and their refund paid, after only a couple of months. Others take much longer.
Why Use The Claims Guide For My Claim?

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.
