Get to know your consumer rights!

Many individuals in debt are often subject to unnecessary harassment by lenders so it is important that you know your rights and how to deal with overzealous debt collection agencies.

Below we have three very good links which will help you understand your consumer rights; the FCA link immediately below will take you to Conc 7, start there but also see section 'CONC 7.3 Treatment of customers in default or arrears (including repossessions): lenders, owners and debt collectors'.

Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) Pursuing and recovering debt repayments

These are the rules UK debt collectors must adhere to.

 

The Credit Services Association (CSA) - Debt Collection Trade Body
