The current cap on loan interest and other charges

There is now a price cap to protect borrowers, which was Financial Conduct Authority which was designed to protect borrowers. This included:

  • 0.8% cost cap per day on the amount borrowed – including interest and fees.
  • Default fees cap of £15 – default interest may be charged, but should not exceed 0.8% per day.
  • Cost cap of 100% – borrowers must not be asked to pay over 100% of the money borrowed.

The limits refer to all credit agreements with an interest rate of 100% or more a year and must be fully or substantially repaid within a year.

Loan companies must also provide details of their products on a price comparison website which is authorised by the FCA and borrowers, and a summary of the cost of borrowing must be available to borrowers.

What has changed about Continuous Payment Authority

You may not have heard of this, but loan companies are often making borrowers repay their debt using a Continuous Payment Authority (CPA.) This means that they can take out money from your account.

There has been new regulations put into place, which go some way to protecting borrowers. The new rules state that if a CPA fails twice, the loan company may not keep attempting to take payments.

Other rules state that lenders must not take partial payments, it must be full payments or nothing at all – unless you have agreed otherwise.
