- 2014 Consumer Credit Litigation - A Legal Framework
8 Apr 2014 - 8 Apr 2014
The Consumer Credit Act 1974 (as amended by the Consumer Credit Act 2006 and, even more recently, by the EU Consumer Credit Directive) is a notoriously difficult piece of legislation for both creditors and debtors. It has therefore created a significant amount of litigation involving debtors arguing technical points to avoid repayment of debts due under a regulated agreement. While many of these challenges are ultimately unsuccessful, debtors are (from time to time) successful and receive a substantial windfall. To try and reduce the prospect of successful challenges, this one day course offers creditors an opportunity to fully understand this evolving legal framework. It will include consideration of the latest developments in consumer credit litigation, the latest case law and current guidance issued by the Office of Fair Trading* and the Financial Conduct Authority. It will also briefly consider the potential future changes to the Consumer Credit Act 1974 together with changes to the regulatory architecture and the effect this may have on consumer credit litigation.
