New rules for high interest lenders

 

The rules have changed for short term high cost (including payday and doorstep) lenders. Among other rule changes, lenders are now required to: carry out proper affordability checks before agreeing loans, roll over loans no more than twice, only try to collect payments using continuous payment authority twice, signpost consumers to independent and free debt advice before a loan can be rolled over, and include a ‘health warning’ on payday loan adverts.


For more detail on the new rules go to: 
www.adviceguide.org.uk/pay_day_loans 
or visit www.fca.org.uk


To report misleading adverts go to: www.citizensadvice.org.uk/irresponsible-advertising


To complain about poor behaviour from lenders (if their response to your original complaint was unsatisfactory) go to: www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk
