Is there a time limit in which to bring my claim?

  • There is a limitation period of 6 years. However, you are able to claim from 3 years after you reasonably became aware of the breach of contract and misrepresentation. Our trained advisors will be able to advise you on this.

I paid by debit card, can I make a claim?

  • Unfortunately not. Claims under section 75 of the Consumer Credit Act relate to purchases on a credit card.

What is the most I can claim?

  • Provided any initial payment on your credit card and the overall value of your purchase is less than £30,000, you could be entitled to a full refund. However if your claim is over £30,000 you could take Class Action proceedings.

How long would I have to wait before finding out if my Section 75 claim is successful

  • The length of time a claim takes to process will depend upon a number of factors, such as the type and complexity of a claim. However, as a general guideline successful claims are usually settled within three months.

What if the bank refuse my claim?

  • Provided you have a justifiable claim we will escalate the claim to the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS).

Who is the FOS?

  • The Financial Ombudsman Service is the United Kingdom's official compensation expert in settling claims between Individuals and businesses with regards to Financial Services.

Can I make a claim without using a claims management company?

  • Yes, you can. Any person can claim under section 75 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974. You can directly write to the credit card provider.
