  1. Alert for charities - use the regulated financial sector READ MORE HERE: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/alert-for-charities-use-the-regulated-financial-sector
  2. I have just seen a RBS agreement from 1992!! At the top it does'nt have the usual bumf of 'this is a Credit agreement regulated under the consumer credit Act 1974' (or similar) I thought this was a must! What legal implications does it have? There are other faults but I can't remember what not having the above means. Its not mine so I can't post it up. Kind Regards jack
  3. Could some expert on here have a look at the attached Secured Loan Agreement and kindly assist in the following questions. APR clearly states 20.10% but Monthly interest is 1.35 %. Surely it should be 16.20% ? If incorrect would this affect the enforceability of the agreement ? Mortgage Indemnity fee charged on a secured loan below £25k - Is that correct ? The loan is secured on my property by way of a charge, not by a mortgage / 2nd mortgage ? Also Welcome have not provided a signed agreement that was dated by them. When would the 7 day cooling off period start from ? I have been reviewing various old Welcome posts but most seem to have no conclusion, so just wanted some clarity. Cheers Further to my earlier post I have located comment made by Welcome in a previous correspondence regarding the APR% query by me as follows. "On your agreement the APR is detailed at 20.1% and the monthly interest is 1.35%. Therefore multiplied by 12 gives an annual rate of 16.20%. This is the same as the annual interest rate showing on your latest statement, there has been no amendment." So on the above statement therefore would my monthly payment of £232.74 over 180 months be variable ? How can I calculate with the figures on my agreement, what interest I have been charged to-date ? Should I have received a Statement of Price Payment Breakdown ?
  4. Hello. A got car insuance through a broker called Adrian Flux. They sent through details of the insurer which is Trinity Lane. They’ve sent me through the paperwork and I was looking through it and in the Trinity Lane documentation it says this. We are authorised and regulated by the Malta Financial Services Authority under the Insurance Business Act 1998 to carry on the business of general motor and accident classes of insurance. So basically I don’t know if this is OK or if I should be wary that it is not authorised and regulated by an authority here in the UK. I can still cancel with no penalty so I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice. Thank you.
  5. In 2007 i guaranteed a limited company's hire agreement said on the face of the document to be none regulated. Total payable with interest was £26,903. The finance company are now suing me under the guarantee There is a dispute about how long the guarantee was for But that is not why i am on here posting The Company claims the Agreement was signed at a dealership - whereas it certainly was not. Im just trying to find out if they are saying that because for it to be a genuine none regulated agreement the agreement needed to be signed on trade premises. As it wasn't, does that change things and if so how? Might it give me more of a defence Might it mean the agreement is instead regulated If so, is that fatal to the claim or does it just give me more options - like rights to cancel, which seems academic, some 7 years later.. Wonder if anybody out there can please help. Thanks in advance.

  8. Hi, Could any one shed some light! I purchased a second property for my mother and it was non regulated, she occupied it 100% for 4 years. my lenders Solisitors instructed my mother to move out giving her a date to do so, she was told she had no rights to occupy or go to court for stay of eviction as she was not a spouse or child of mine. Dispite removing my mother, it took the lender 1 year to get a decree and another three months to repposses the property. Q. If the property had a regulated mortgage would she have had any legal rights? Thanks in Advance
  9. Hi, I've just read the OFT Document, "Consumer credit - regulated and exempt agreements". It states: My agreement with Safeloans is headed, "Fixed Sum Loan Agreement regulated by the Consumer Credit Act 1974". And contains: Could somebody advise? Basically I need to know whether charges and interest beyond the original capital and interest are fair and enforceable?
  10. Hi, I am posting here to find out if someone can help me. Two and a half years ago a purchased a car on a hire agreemt from mercedes smart value of finance was £8k. The agreement was in my limited companies name but with myself as a guarantor and wasn't explained what a non regulated contract or agreement was. I am currently in the process of paying of the finance agreement and have subsequently found out that as the agreement is non regulated theycan charge me 4 months interest as an early repayment charge. Nowhere in the contract does it state they can do this nor does it outliine what a non regulated contract is. I have advised the dealership that the loan value is below £25k so it should be regulated and their response was that limited companies are not covered by the CCA, is this correct? Surely my company is covered if I am guarantor and if my company has less then 5 employees? Also if the agreement does not highligh there is a 4 month interest charge penalty for an early repayment can they charge it? I would appreciate any help on this and advice on what to do to resolve my issue in trying to retreive the four months of interest back. Oh and when I approached the finance company they are accepting no liability for the miss selling of the dealership. thank you
  11. Hello everyone, We want to reclaim a misold PPI policy sold April 2005 and loads of other fees and have a copy of our secured loan agreement, but it says it is "Not regulated under CCA" Does not being regulated under the Consumer Credit Act make any difference, I'm not sure what it even means to us. Thanks for any help.
  12. Peer-to-peer lenders such as Zopa, RateSetter and Funding Circle will be regulated by the new Financial Conduct Authority. Peer-to-peer (P2P) lenders such as Zopa, RateSetter, Funding Circle, and Yes-Secure will be regulated by the new Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), it has been revealed. P2P lenders are already monitored by the Office of Fair Trading but responsibility for regulation will pass to the FCA in April 2014. P2P lenders match savers looking for a more competitive rate of return on their deposits with those needing to borrow, often at significantly more competitive rates than a high-street bank. However, deposits to P2P lenders’ sites are not covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS), which protects savers from the failure of financial services firms. There are not any plans to bring P2P lenders under the scope of that now that they are going to be regulated, so lenders will still be taking a risk by not having the protection they need on their deposits. The largest P2P lender in the UK is Zopa, which was launched in 2005 and offers P2P lenders one of the lowest default rates, by offering lenders the option to choose the type of borrower they want to lend money to and the length of the loan.
