Been stung by a Parking fine? You may not have to pay!

The RAC have said that £££Millions in private parking penalties may have been charged illegally.

The RAC commissioned a report from barrister John de Waal QC, who said some parking companies were levying charges disproportionate to the losses suffered by landowners.

In England and Wales clamping, towing, blocking-in or immobilising a vehicle without lawful authority on private land was banned under The Protection of Freedoms Act 2012, in a bid to end abuses by rogue clamping firms.

And where parking signs were not clear or prominently displayed, the charge could be challenged on the grounds of unfairness.

The 2015 Payday Loan Rules Made Simple

Great news for customers of Payday Loans! In November 2014 the Financial Conduct Authority confirmed the following change to the rules governing payday loans:

From 2 January 2015, no borrower will ever pay back more than twice what they borrowed, and someone taking out a loan for 30 days and repaying on time will not pay more than £24 in fees and charges per £100 borrowed.

In line with this, all the lenders on our panel have lowered their interest rates and have confirmed they operate within these new rules.

How will the FCA affect You?

From the 1st April the FCA (Financial Conduct Authority) took over the duties of regulating the credit industry from the OFT. In this remit they have a lot more powers than the FCA and are already making changes. Some firms have already had their consumer credit licences taken away, while others have surrendered their’s voluntarily.

Their objective is to make the high-cost credit industry consumer focused. Already we have had to modify our website to add warnings regarding the cost of credit. And our lenders are increasingly asking us to collect more information, for example we now ask for more details about your monthly expenditure, and we will soon be asking for more details. Whilst we realise this can appear burdensome, the objective is to both encourage consumers to think about how they spend their money and whether they can afford a loan, as well as helping lenders assess affordability of a loan.

At Payday Pig we are also planning changes which will make us more consumer facing. More to be announced…
