The Consumer Credit Act (1974) is in place to ensure that individuals who borrow from a lender do so on fair terms. The CCA stipulates a number of rules, regulations and restrictions and any form of credit must cohere to these stipulations or else it is considered unenforceable.
How do I know if my credit agreement is unenforceable?
There are a number of possible factors which could result in your credit agreement being categorised as unenforceable, the following are just a few of the most common:
– If the Annual Payable Rate (APR) interest increases during the course of the credit agreement.
– If the monthly payments are not within your financial means.
– If the credit limit on a credit card has been increased without your knowledge or consent.
As there are multitudinous factors which could potentially render a credit agreement unenforceable it is well worth contacting a professional for an assessment or audit in order to assess whether you have a claim. From that point they will be able to advise you on the best forms of action.
What happens if my credit agreement is deemed unenforceable due to failure to comply with the Consumer Credit Act (1974)?
