If a creditor fails to carry out adequate affordability checks, they may end up issuing a loan that’s more than the customer needs or that the consumer cannot afford to repay. In such instances, this decision could mean a customer is forced to cut back on essential purchases just to keep up with their scheduled loan payments. The Financial Ombudsman Service, often abbreviated to the FOS, is a service that handles disputes between consumers and financial services businesses in order to settle complaints.
Clients who believe their loan was unaffordable may be eligible to claim a form of irresponsible lending compensation from their finance provider.
In November 2022, Blue Motor Finance was advised to follow the below guidance to settle a customer hire purchase loan complaint :
Refund any payments Mr. H has made in excess of £9,974 representing the original cash price of the car. It 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. H’s credit file regarding the agreement.
