Section 75 is part of the Consumer Credit Act (CCA) 1974. It states that a finance provider is jointly and severally liable for any breach of contract or misrepresentation by the retailer or trader.
This makes the credit card company you may have paid the deposit with, or the lender who provider you the finance, jointly liable with the company who sold you the product.
Because of the above, Consumer Reclaim are able to pursue claims against companies that mis-sold or misrepresented products to its customers. This applies even when the company is no longer trading because the finance providers are jointly liable.
Section 75 does, however, have strict limitations. To claim under it you must have purchased the product or service within the last 6 years.
The total purchase price of the product or service must have been between £100 and £30,000. You must have paid at least £100 on a credit card towards the purchase; or have taken out finance to cover the purchase.
