“the borrower should be able to make the required repayments without undue difficulty, whilst continuing to meet other debt repayment obligations and reasonable regular outgoings”.Chapter 5: The Financial Conduct Authority Sourcebook
If you can demonstrate that a high cost loan was “unaffordable”, and that the lender did not conduct appropriate checks, then you are probably eligible for a refund. Unaffordable lending means lending that the a borrower could not reasonably afford at the time it was taken out. Lending money without checking affordability is known as irresponsible lending. If you were only able to repay your high cost loans by juggling other loans or credit cards to get through the month, then your lender may not have made appropriate checks.
Signs that your loan(s) may have been unaffordable include:
- you frequently consolidated loans or borrowed shortly after repaying a loan
- your loans from a single lender were regularly increasing in size
- you missed some repayments
- you made some repayments late
- the loan repayment was a substantial part of your income
- you were using one form of debt to fund another.
