Wilson v First County Trust Ltd (1): CA 3 Nov 2000

The administrative charges for entering into a loan were not to be included in the loan, but rather as an item entering into the total charge for credit. To hold otherwise went against accounting practice, would disguise the cost of the loan, and would be against the spirit of the Act,which was to protect consumers by making clear the true cost of borrowing. The Act made such an agreement entirely unenforceable, and the question arose as to whether the entire removal of the lenders’ rights in this way was proportionate in view of the deprivation of his human right to have the fairness of the loan reviewed by the court. ‘Nor should the decisions of courts and tribunals made before those sections had come into force be impugned on the ground that the court or tribunal was said to have acted in a way which was incompatible with Convention rights’.
