The « guarantee » is defined in the law as any form of mortgage, loan, clearing, guarantee or any other right that the debtor grants as a « guarantee » for consumer credit or lease with the creditor. This applies to both « real » securities, such as mortgages, and personal securities such as bonds. The only condition is that the guarantee be provided at the request of the debtor. Any guarantee must be made in writing and, in some cases, is part of the original lease. This is different from previous laws, which required written notification of the agreement but allowed for oral execution of the agreement. [47] Debt advice is advice to debtors or tenants in the event of debt liquidation under consumer credit or consumer leasing contracts. This applies to any debtor advisor, whether it is free legal advice or not; For example, the Citizens` Advisory Office is considered a debt advisor, although its advisors are covered by a group license. Collection companies are covered by similar provisions and are defined as those that take steps to « settle debts due » under consumer credit and consumer leases. Those who « buy » debts and try to recover them are covered by this definition. [63] An auxiliary credit transaction is defined in Section 145 of the Act as any business operating in credit intermediation, debt adjustment, collection activity, debtor advice or as a credit reference agency.

As a general rule, the lender should provide you with a credit contract that defines the details of the agreement, including your rights. You and the lender must approve the terms of the agreement to seal the contract. Courts may issue enforcement orders in cases where the contract has been breached, unless the contract has been signed or the terms are not specified in the contract, in which case they are not permanently enforceable. Courts are also prohibited from issuing enforcement orders if the landlord or creditor has not provided a copy of the agreement to the debtor or tenant prior to the start of the contract. In addition, the court is required to issue such orders. There are also situations in which contracts can be made even in the absence of infringement. This is when the debtor or tenant died to recover protected goods without the consent of a debtor and enforce a country mortgage. [52] Partially regulated agreements are consumer or consumer credit contracts that are not exempt agreements, but are exempt from certain provisions of the law. The nature of these provisions depends on the nature of the agreement; non-commercial agreements and contracts with foreign elements. However, there are types of credit contracts that the Consumer Credit Act does not cover. These include gas, electricity and water meter contracts, mortgages, credit unions and money borrowed by Dencern, to name a few.

As a result of the trade restrictions imposed by the Moneylenders Act of 1927, the idea of leasing developed. These were first regulated by the Hire-Purchase and Small Debt (Scotland) Act 1932, which covered only Scotland; England and Wales were first covered by the Hire-Purchase Act of 1938, which was later amended by the Hire-Purchase Act of 1954 and the Hire-Purchase Act of 1964.
