How were guarantor loans mis-sold?
When borrowing money the company is required to do the correct affordability checks. Even though you have a guarantor on the loan it is part of the company’s responsibility to ensure you can afford to pay it back. It doesn’t matter if you have had the loan or paid one off.
If you were the Guarantor for the loan you can make a claim. As the Guarantor the Lender had a duty of care to ensure they followed the correct procedures when adding you to the loan.
If my complaint is successful what could I be due back?
Interest – you will receive back any interest that you have been charged which can be a sizeable amount in certain cases. In addition to this you will received 8% interest on this amount per year since the loan was taken out.
Negative Marks on Credit Report – if you have any marks against your credit file due to this loan they will be removed.
*If your loan is ongoing or outstanding the money you receive back may be used to pay off the remaining balance. We will only charge on the amount you receive back and not on the amount deducted off your remaining balance, if you have one.
Payments you made – if you have had to make payments because the borrower defaulted then you can get this back plus 8% interest on this amount per year since you made the payment.
Negative Marks on Credit Report – if you have any marks against your credit file due to being a Guarantor on this loan they will be removed. Also includes any county court judgements or restrictions on your property.
Removed as Guarantor – If the loan is ongoing you will be released from any responsibility regarding the loan and it will revert to being a normal loan for the borrower.
