Lending Laws

#1: Comfortably Affordable

It is illegal for lenders to give your credit if you cannot afford it. The best way to ensure this is for them to check your credit score.

#2: Fee Caps

Lending firms must not charge more than 0.8% per day and you should never pay back more than 100% of what you borrowed (including late fees!). 

#3: Collection Laws

When your lender collects a repayment from your bank account, they must give you notice to avoid nasty surprises and financial difficulty.  If they don’t they are breaching a rule. Additionally, if you do not have enough money to pay so they take part of the payment and wipe out your balance, they are breaking the law.

The only time they can take part payment is with your permission.
