What is a Payday Loan?
Payday Loans are typically short-term Loans of £100 to £1,000 which are usually repaid on the borrower’s next Payday. Some Loan Providers, however, may allow a longer repayment period. This could be anything up to a maximum of 12 months but with high interest rates, with most over 1000% APR.
How could I have been mis-sold?
Each Loan Provider has strict regulations which they must adhere to at all times, covering every area of their business. Several common reasons for mis-selling have emerged within the Payday Loan industry through regulatory action undertaken by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). It has been demonstrated that many Loan Providers failed to comply with the rules and complete adequate affordability checks, meaning the Loan was never affordable for the customer. This has led to many customers having to take out additional borrowing to meet their repayments, becoming trapped in a ‘borrowing cycle’. Several Loan Providers charged unreasonable fees, or failed to explain when fees and charges would be applied.
