Applied for a loan from picture loans in july 06. I was waiting for a cheque to arrive for over £3.000.00 .I thought not claiming for ill health payments. I had a long wait as hsf loans who the insurance is from do not pay out if you go into arrears over 2 months. Read the small print as there is always a catch with these goody goody companies.

I took out a 5 year loan with them on the basis of the Interest Back Bonus Scheme in December 2001. I assumed that with such a system there would be many 'banana skins' along the way, which may have prevented payout. On this basis I carefully read the HFS Loans conditions over and over again, using a highlight pen to pick out the potential 'banana skins'. Having digested the conditions. I duly followed the instructions, registered and received the required certificate. This, and other... (read more)

At the time I took the loan out with HFS (now Capital One) home owner loans, they were offering customers all the interest paid back at the end of the term of the loan, subject to conditions being kept by the borrower.
At the time I was made aware that no more than 2 repayments must not be late and that you had to claim the interest back within 21 days of the loan ending. My loan ended in September 2006. I rang Capital One to enquire regarding claiming my interest back on the loan. They... (read more)

HFS cash back loan:
I never knew I had to complete a registration form until my 5 years were nearly up, and I wanted to claim back my interest.
This is very misleading. I received a letter from HFS congratulating me on completing the loan. If it's completed, I assume no further action needs to take place? If further action is required i.e fill out the registration document, they don't mention it in the letter !!. However I did receive a registration form (only pointed out to me last... (read more)

I too have been caught out by the small print used in this HFS Loans Ltd scheme. I missed the bit about a registration form in amongst the 12 pages of A4 small print and especially the bit that put the onus on the borrower to notify HFS if the registration form wasn't received. This was amongst the 21 points that HFS had to delete or amend after The Office of Fair Trading had finished with them (see OFT bulletins 21 and 22, unfair terms and conditions).
Not surprisingly then they soon... (read more)

I saw a question on this site for HFS Loans Ltd Interest Back Offer from the site-registered member. As I am having difficulty claiming my Interest back from HFS and as they can not find my registration, I wonder if others are having similar difficulties with HFS offer. They are asking me now to prove that I had registered by producing a proof of posting or registered post proof. It appears that their registration site has been relocated several times and have lost the registration form. ... (read more)
