    EF&P CONSUMER CREDIT vol. 12(1)A is now live on LexisLibrary

    LexisLibrary: Encyclopaedia of Forms and Precedents

    CONSUMER CREDIT December 2017, vol 12(1)A

    Volume 12(1)A (2017 Reissue) has been updated, reviewed and expanded to ensure that full account is taken of recent legislative and case law developments. It includes a section of consumer credit agreements that contain the pre-contract credit information (the Standard European Consumer Credit Information (‘SECCI’) or European Consumer Credit Information (‘ECCI’) under the Consumer Credit (Disclosure of Information) Regulations 2010, SI 2010/1013) and consumer credit agreements under the Consumer Credit (Agreements) Regulations 2010, SI 2010/1014, drafted in accordance with the changes introduced by the Consumer Credit (EU Directive) Regulations 2010, SI 2010/1010 and associated regulations which implement Directive 2008/48/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on credit agreements for consumers. It also reflects the significant changes which occurred upon the change in regulatory regime in 2014, whereby the Financial Conduct Authority took over regulation from the Office of Fair Trading and many of the substantive rules on form, content and practice were moved over to the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Regulated Activities) Order 2001 and the Financial Conduct Authority’s Consumer Credit Sourcebook (CONC).

    Practical guidance is provided on the drafting of consumer credit agreements to comply with the law and to achieve commercial objectives.

    The title provides a brief commentary and a cohesive and integrated set of precedents and guidance notes covering the full range of agreements and related matters, including:
    — checklists;
    — advertisements;
    — fixed-sum credit agreements;
    — running-account credit agreements;
    — secured agreements and unsecured agreements;
    — hire agreements;
    — modifying agreements;
    — guarantees; and
    — ancillary consumer finance related agreements.
