Terms and Conditions
1. YOUR ASSESSMENT
In making your claim you will not put yourself at any financial risk. Nor will a successful refund from the lender/ creditor adversely affect your relationship with that lender/creditor if you continue to use them. Our attached information sheet headed ‘What we can do and why we can’ contains objective information for you to consider before signing. If you are still uncertain please contact us for any further explanations which you need before making up your mind.
We will gather information from you and from your bank or credit company and use this information to forward a carefully prepared claim with supporting documents based on the broken FCA principles and areas of mishandling that we have determined in your case. We will contact you when we have received a refund offer from the lender generally in the form of a Settlement Agreement Form for you to sign and return. We generally settle your claim quickly and without court action. Compensation payments are generally made directly to you from the lender.
Consumer Savings Network Ltd will seek to reclaim any and all monies lost plus additional associated interest you may be owed from the Mis sold product; whether it be from PPI or the commission fees (Plevin) associated with the case, PBA’s (packaged bank accounts), Mis Sold Investments, Pension products, or Payday Loans.
In most cases, we will also get you compensatory interest of 8% for the time they have had your money in their possession.
For PPI cases; Consumer Savings Network charges 20% plus VAT (24% in total) of the total gross compensation awarded to you, the client, for this service. For example if you win £5000 in gross compensation, you will need to pay Consumer Savings Network £1200 in total for our service. (£1000 plus £200 for VAT). In instances where the client is in arrears and the compensation is used to reduce outstanding debt, Consumer Savings Network ltd will accept interest free repayments of our fee for up to 9 months.
For Mis-Sold Investment and SIPP Cases; Consumer Savings Network charges 30% plus VAT (36% in total) of the total gross compensation awarded to you, the client, for this service. For example, if you win £10,000 in gross compensation, you will need to pay Consumer Savings Network £3,000 for our service plus £600 for VAT, so £3,600 in total.
For PBA Cases; Consumer Savings Network charges 25% plus VAT (30% in total) of the total gross compensation awarded to you, the client, for this service. For example, if you win £5,000 in gross compensation, you will need to pay Consumer Savings Network £1,250 for our service plus £250 for VAT.
There is no charge for our service, if we are not successful with your case.
All we require is for you to agree to our Terms of Business and to sign 2 Letters of Authority that then enable us to act on your behalf. You may consider making a copy of these documents for your own records.
We operate an in-house complaints procedure. In the event you feel the need to make a complaint you may lodge this by letter, telephone or email. Your complaint will be investigated wherever possible by a person who was not directly involved in the subject matter of the complaint. We will acknowledge your complaint within 5 business days of receiving it and at that stage we will provide appropriate details of our ongoing complaints procedure.

You may cancel this contract by notice in writing at any point within 14 days of signing it. You will be responsible to notify the bank or credit company of the cancellation of the claim. For your convenience, a Cancellation Form is available to download from our Website.
If after the cancellation period, we receive written or verbal notification of a successful claim because of the work we have presented to the Lender/Creditor on your behalf, you will still be liable for payment of our standard commission fee of 25% plus VAT of the compensation awarded to you, as stated in section 3.
