Matthew Bradley in successful Consumer Credit Act unfair relationships challenge

News & Judgments
16 April 2018

There are relatively few reported decisions involving a successful challenge under the unfair relationships provisions of the Consumer Credit Act 1974.  Pilgrim Rock Ltd v Iwaniuk is now reported in Goode’s Consumer Credit Reports at [2017] GCCR 15027.  Matthew Bradley appeared for the debtor in this decision, in which the creditor’s contractual entitlement to interest of £1,541,000 was reduced by the Court to £195,117.  The judgment is of interest for its finding that a relationship between a creditor company and a debtor may be unfair under CCA 1974, s 140A(2) by reason of acts of an individual undertaken on behalf of the company, even if the individual is not the beneficial owner, director or associate of the company.
