Why are debt problems such a big issue and is the government helping out in any way?

Debt is such a major problem these days that regulations had to be brought in to help offer protection to borrowers.

Since the start of 2015, loan rates have been capped at 0.8% per day of the amount borrowed, and no-one has to pay back more than twice the amount they borrowed.

What you need to know about the government caps

The Financial Conduct Authority ended up putting in some price caps, in order to try and protect borrowers from ending up with excessive charges. These caps include:

  • A cost cap of 0.8% per day on the amount of money borrowed – this also includes interest and all fees charged.
  • Default fees cap of £15 – interest can still be charged after the default, but it can not be more than the original rate of 0.8% per day.
  • A complete cost cap of 100% – you must not be asked to pay over 100% of the money borrowed.

The caps are relevant to credit agreements with an interest rate of over 100%, and that will either be fully paid back or the majority is due to be paid back within one year.

There are also other regulations which have applied since May 2017. According to these, lenders have a responsibility to provide information on all their products on a price comparison website, which should be authorised by the FCA. In addition to this, borrowers should receive a summary of the cost of what they have borrowed.

Continuous Payment Authority – the new rules

You may find that, in most cases, you will be asked to repay your debt via a CPA. With a CPA, the lending company would have the right to take money from your bank to put it towards the loan repayments.

There have been new regulations put in place relating to the CPA. These rules state that if the CPA fails twice, they cannot make any further requests to debt the money.

According to the new regulations, the lender must not attempt to take partial payments to clear the debt. If you do not have sufficient funds in your account to cover the cost of the debt, they must not take anything. If you would be happy for them to take partial payments to cover the cost of the debt, they can do this, but you must have given them permission. They must not take partial payments without your permission.

Can’t pay it back? What now?

According to the law, lenders have a responsibility to do the following if you can’t pay back the loan:

  • Offer advice on where you can obtain free independent debt advice
  • Give you a reasonable period of time while a repayment plan is devised
  • Ensure that there is time to pay the debt back at a rate which suits, while freezing interest and additional charges, if possible.
