Another term that these claims are known by is ‘hidden’ commission claims. The reason for this is because there is nothing wrong with a broker receiving commission from a lender for referring you to them, provided that you are aware of it and they have complied with their professional duties.

An independent financial broker is supposed to act in your best interests, and not a lender that they have a working relationship with. If your broker has received commission payments from a lender and kept this hidden from you, then this is a breach of their professional duties and you may have a claim.

This may also have led to you not being made aware of ALL of the facts which would allow you to make an informed decision.

There are levels to the extent that a commission is hidden. For example, a half-secret commission may be where it is made clear that the broker will receive commission, but it is not made clear how much commission will be paid at the point of purchase.

If your financial broker was independent, i.e., if they had a duty to provide you with impartial information or advice, and they received a hidden commission payment that you were unaware of before taking out a loan, then you may be entitled to make a claim.

You may have taken out a mortgage, a personal loan, a car finance loan, or any other finance agreement.

Provided that there was a hidden commission payment to your broker from your lender, it is unimportant what type of loan you have taken out.

A failure to diclose commission payments may give rise to several types of claims and consequently, several types of remedy. The Court has the power to order that the agreement can be Unwound or Rescinded.

Ultimately this means that you - the borrower - should be put back into the position that you would have been in had you not taken out the loan or finance agreement and is returned up to many Thousands of pounds of interest payments as well as all charges and fees.
