    Default Hi Everyone Ref; Blemain Finance

    Hi, I was persuaded by my broker to take out a secured loan with Blemain Finance when my business was in trouble in 2010 and foolishly I did, since I took out the loan I have managed to pay £4,500 off the original sum of £11,000 but still owe over £12,000???

    My business has now ceased trading and I am only working 16 hrs per week and claiming working tax credit while looking for another job so as you can imagine I have fallen behind with my loan payments, I am now concerned that Blemain will come after my family home.

    Can anyone advise on this?

    Kind Regards
    Z

    Hi BigZ, sorry I can't be any practical help to you however I am sure if you looked at other posts on this site you would realise just in what sort of trouble this cowboy organisation are in and how they treat their customers. I hope others on this site will be of more practical help. I would suggest you start by first examining your credit agreement with a fine tooth comb.

    First step is to request a subject access request

    Hi bigZ you say that you took a loan out while your business was in trouble
    did they carry out enough checks to see if you could afford the repayments or did they lend irresponsibly as i believe this company are happy to lend recklessly with a veiw to getting their hands on the equity from vulnerable people. Was this a regulated loan if so you have more rights

    Hi Suffering, It was very easy to get the loan, my financial advisor just went through some forms with me and a few days later the loan was mine. Not sure what you mean by regulated, how can i tell?

    The application form will tell you if they properly assessed your ability to pay

    The area with Blemain is a minefiled. YOu need a good Solicitor experienced in handling Blemain cases. In further posts on this forum a firm called Stephensons had some success with Blemain in the case of Bleman v Ridley. I'd defer to them.
