Continuous Payment Authority – the recent changes

The CPA is payment plan used by loan companies and previously, the CPA caused borrowers a lot of problems. Lenders were taken the money from the debtors account whenever they wished, and this was causing debtors to be left without any money in their account.

There have been some recent changes made to the CPA in order to provide borrowers with greater protection. One of these rules is that they cannot try to take the payment on more than two occasions. If it fails twice, no further payments can be made.

Rules are also in place relating to the amount of money lenders are permitted to take. They were previously allowed to take partial payments until the debt was completely cleared, but this rule has changed.

They must only take the full amount, or they must not take anything. If you’d prefer the payments to be taken in instalments, this can be arranged, but you must give them permission before to them doing this.
