Founded in 2017, Go Car Credit has approved over 117,000 loans for clients looking to finance their next car purchase. The brand’s specialism includes offering ‘bad credit’ car finance options to eligible customers. For example, Hire Purchase agreements offered by Go Car Credit can extend to include those who may typically struggle to obtain other loan offerings due to their poor credit.

With this in mind, the Warrington based brand has helped 25,000 customers who may have been refused by other lenders and firms. Loan offerings come between £3k and £15k across two to five years and the APR ranges between 29% and 49%.

What Are Go Car Credit Compensation Claims?

Irresponsible lending relates to a varied spectrum of situations in which a lender may have lent money to clients in a way that breaches FCA regulations. There are certain ways in which a financial lender should ensure a client’s lending is affordable and not irresponsible. With this in mind, if a lender allows a client to borrow money without sufficient background checks, uses forceful tactics or the customer is unable to pay for essential living costs, there could be grounds for an unaffordable lending compensation claim.

In such instances, The Financial Ombudsman Service or FOS is a service that oversees disputes between consumers and financial service businesses in order to resolve lending complaints.

In January 2022, Go Car Credit was advised to follow the below points in order to settle a customer hire purchase loan complaint external link icon light blue:

Refund any payments Mr. W has made in excess of £3,254, representing the original cash price of the car. Go Car Credit should add 8% simple interest per year* from the date of each overpayment to the date of settlement.

Remove any adverse information recorded on Mr. W’s credit file relating to the agreement.

  • Did Go Car Credit ask for evidence of your finances?
  • Did the Continuous Payment Authority give you a prior warning that money would be deducted from your account?
  • Were you forced into borrowing, or pressured to extend your loan?
  • Did Go Car Credit act unfairly or unreasonably in any way?
  • Did you need to take out a further loan to repay the first one because of unaffordability?
