Car finance mis-selling can take many forms, but there are two main ways in which taxi drivers may have been misled:
– By being sold a PCP agreement when it wasn’t the best option for them. In some cases, taxi drivers may have been pushed into taking out a PCP finance deal because of the high commissions that were being offered to the salesman.
– By not being made aware of the full terms and conditions of their PCP finance agreement. In some cases, taxi drivers may have been given misleading information about their repayments, or they may not have been told about important details like early repayment charges.
–Hidden and incentivized commissions, it was found that before February 2020 that car salespeople we able to dictate the rate of interest that was put on the loan. This often resulted in people being mis-sold PCP or HP finance and taking out agreements that were not in their best interests, or that they would not have otherwise agreed to.
For example, a salesperson could raise the interest rate before signing the car finance agreement to receive a higher commission.
This commission model has now been Banned by the FCA as it does not put car buyers first.
On your finance agreement at the top, if it states “PCP (or) HP REGULATED BY THE CONSUMER CREDIT ACT 1974” that would mean your finance agreement is regulated by the FCA and you would be able to make a no win no fee claim with a solicitor or claim back on your own.
Consumers in the UK who have bought finance will be regulated, however, if your finance is not regulated then you may find it harder to claim back car finance as being regulated means you have more security.
The amount of money you could get back will depend on your individual circumstances, but it’s not uncommon for people to receive thousands of pounds in compensation. If you think you may have been mis-sold taxi finance.
