A Problem on the Doorstep
Doorstep loan mis-selling is a scandal. Thousands of UK consumers borrowed from lenders such as Provident on their doorstep. These loans work much in the same way as payday and short term loans. In theory, they are short loans designed to bridge shortfalls between paydays.
However, unlike payday loan lenders, doorstep loan lenders build personal relationships via agents on the doorstep. These agents have historically been given targets to meet and commission rewards. We have seen customers locked into these relationships for years and years. It is remarkable that the agents / lenders have not recognised that the borrowers have been re-borrowing out of necessity – not choice. Eye watering amounts of fees have been paid by borrowers for products that are designed (and priced) for short term use.
Recently Provident discontinued its product in recognition of the unaffordability issues plaguing its product. Other lenders have similar issues, and continue to operate.
Putting things Right
The good news is that it is possible to claim against these lenders much in the same way as it is against payday loan lenders. If you have suffered due to doorstep lending with Provident or a regulated lender like them, we can help claim compensation.
Our Unaffordable Lending Claims Process
We realise that claiming against a high cost loan lender can seem daunting. We aim to make the claiming process as simple as possible. We specialise in affordability claims. Our experienced team will communicate with the lender (and where required, the Ombudsman service) on your behalf. We use bespoke technology to ensure efficient claims handling. Throughout the process, we inform you of claim progress using a “stage process”, so you can track your progress easily. Please remember though, that you do not need to use a claims management company to make your complaint to your lender, and if your complaint is not successful you can refer it to the Financial Ombudsman Service yourself for free.

We are one of the few claims management companies that offers a “No Cash, No Fee” service. This means our success fee is only charged on the actual cash you receive – not on debt deductions applied by your lender. To put it simply, you’ll never be left with less cash in your pocket than you began with if you use us.
Our standard success fee is 30% inclusive of VAT calculated on the cash-in-hand that you receive. It couldn’t be more simple.

- Our fee £. This fee includes VAT.
- £ Cash in hand after you pay our fee.
To be clear, we do not charge the success fee for tax deductions or debt deductions of any kind.
Working fee examples:
- If you are awarded £0 in redress/compensation, there is no charge
- If you are awarded £1,000 in redress our success fee would be £300 (inc. VAT)
- If you are awarded £3,000 in redress our success fee would be £900 (inc. VAT)
- If you awarded £10,000 in redress our success fee would be £3,000 (inc. VAT)
- If you have an active loan or arrears, the lender will likely reduce or wholly offset any cash in hand you receive. In this scenario, the success fee will be calculated on the cash in hand you receive, for example:
If you are awarded £1,000 in redress but your lender also deducts £500 for outstanding liabilities, our success fee is calculated on £500 cash in hand. Our success fee would be = £150 (inc. VAT).
