Car Finance Commission Claims2021-07-22T09:04:47+01:00

Have you been mis-sold a Car Finance agreement?

A recent Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) investigation into the sales practices of car dealerships has found widespread evidence of mis-selling and unfair overcharging on all types of personal vehicle financing. The investigation discovered significant failings of garages and dealerships in relation to incentivised commission structures provided by lenders.

Lenders have systematically incentivised brokers and car dealers to charge their own customers significantly higher interest rates on credit agreements by offering increased commission payments. Due to this, brokers or car dealerships have chosen to offer finance products based on the level of commissions they would receive rather than the product that is most suitable for the customer. This is incredibly unfair and an unjust abuse of power. Furthermore, due to a complete lack of disclosure, the customer was unaware of what was happening.

A recent FCA investigation found that over 95% of cars finance agreements were sold subject to commission based interest.

“Not only was the commission payment hidden from the customer, they were also being charged higher interest rates on their loan agreements for the financial gain of the sales agent or dealership. These devious acts have cost individual customers thousands of pounds in unnecessary payments.”
