PCP Car Finance Claims

Discretionary Commission Car Finance

  • Did you purchase a car, motorcycle or van using car finance between 6th April 2007 and 28th January 2021?
  • Was the car finance arrangement a personal contract purchase (PCP) or a Hire Purchase agreement?

If yes, it could be that your lender and car dealer (acting as a credit broker) had what are known as a ‘discretionary commission arrangement’ in place where the higher the interest rate you were charged the more commission the broker would receive.

If this is the case, you may be due a refund.

Following a review of the Motor Finance Sector by the FCA (Financial Conduct Authority) they have found widespread evidence of mis-selling of UK car finance agreements leading to a high percentage of customers paying higher finance costs.

In January 2021 ‘discretionary commission arrangements’ were banned, however based on the number of complaints received, the FCA are reviewing historical motor finance arrangements and sales. It is anticipated they could establish widespread misconduct and customers losing out financially.

An outcome from the FCA investigation is expected by 24th September 2024. There could be a time restriction placed on complaints, therefore it is important to log a complaint as soon as possible to avoid the risk of being outside of this.

In certain agreements between car dealerships and lenders, there frequently existed a stipulation wherein the lender established a minimum interest rate for the agreement. If the dealer opted to charge an interest rate exceeding this minimum, they would, under the discretionary commission arrangement often receive more commission from the lender.

  • Do you find it acceptable to be charged an interest rate of 5.99% for a PCP or HP agreement when you could have potentially paid as little as 2.99%, especially when you consider that the interest rate imposed does not link to your credit risk?

If you purchased a car between these dates, where the dealer arranged the finance, and you were charged an interest rate of more than 2.99% then we would like to hear from you.

To lodge a claim via ourselves, we will need you to provide us with a copy of the purchase agreement that you had with the car dealer, along with a copy of the finance agreement that you had with the lender. We will also need to know if the dealer recommended that you take out a PCP or Hire Purchase Agreement in favour of other arrangements you had in place to fund your purchase.
