New rules on claims management companies. Which? calls for even stronger action

Coming into force this summer the new rules will mean:

- CMCs must agree contracts in writing with their clients, before any fees can be taken. – CMCs must refer to their regulatory status as being regulated by the claims management regulator – rather than the MOJ which till now could be misconstrued as MOJ and goverment endorsement; and – CMCs must inform clients if they are suspended or restrictions imposed on their business within 14 days of the enforcement action being taken.

As part of the industry wide crackdown, the Regulator has – from 1st April – also banned inducement advertising by claims management companies. No longer will companies be able to target consumers through advertisements which offer vulnerable individuals a cash incentive for signing up to use their services.

Need for a written contract

The Head of Claims Management Regulation, Kevin Rousell, said ‘Time and time again we see examples of consumers who have inadvertently agreed to a contract with a CMC without a written contract in place. I want people to have time to think through their arrangemnet and be happy and clear about exactly what the deal is before they part with any money.

‘These new rules will root out poor practice and ensure consumers are better protected by making contract terms much clearer. Enforcing new rules will help to drive malpractice out of the industry and improve the reputation for the vast majority of CMCs that do follow the rules.’

Which? calls for even stronger action on CMCs

Which? executive director. Richard Lloyd said in response to the announcement: ‘The claims management industry is riddled with bad practice and unsrupulous businesses with little regard for their customers. Payment protection insurance claims have fuelled an explosive growth in industry, with thousands of people fleeced by CMCs charging hefty fees for simple complaints that consumers can easily do for themselves for free.’

‘That’s why, although these new rules are a step in the right direction, we think the Goverment should be much bolder in cleaning up the claims industry. Upfront fees should be banned and those in charge of claims firms properly held to account for bad behaviour, with hefty fines imposed, licences revoked and individuals barred from running CMCs if they’re found guilty of breaking the rules.

‘Thousnads of people are telling us that they are totally fed up with nuisance calls and texts from CMCs. On their behalf we’re campaigning for regulators, including the Claims Management Regulator, to crack down on those responsible and call time on this major nuisance, so it’s disappointing that the Goverment has missed this opportunity to respond.’

‘Ministers must rethink this piecemeal approach to regulating CMCs and take tougher, joined-up action to protect consumers.’
