Frequently Asked Questions

Who are Reclaim Experts?

Reclaim Experts is a website which links you and your claim requests to a Claim Management Company.

The Claims management company (CMC) specialise in helping customers to receive Loan Refunds for a variety of loans including Guarantor Loans, Payday Loans (short term) and Doorstep Loans. In simple terms this is claiming back money that you, the borrower, are entitled to, due to your leader not making the necessary checks before they gave you the loan.

What loans can you claim a refund against?

Predominately, we have reclaimed refunds against lenders of Guarantor Loans, Payday Loans (short term) and Doorstep Loans.

Why could I claim?

If your lender did not make the necessary checks before they gave you the loan, this could be irresponsible lending. It is a lenders responsibly to ensure that people can afford the loan, and not struggle to make the loan payments. If you have found yourself in this situation, this is where we can help. As a Claims Management Company, we can help you make a claim and receive a refund against your loan, which was incorrectly loaned.

How does it work?

Making a claim is simple and we are here to support you throughout the whole process. Simply submit your claim through our online application form, and once received we will investigate your loan claim and be in touch via email and phone. Please make sure you store our details in your phone.

How long does it take?

From the day you complete our simple online form, we should receive a response to your complaint between 6 – 12 weeks later. If the lender rejects the claim, it may be that we recommend referring your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman, in which case it may take a few months longer to resolve.

The complete process from submitting a claim to receiving a refund on average is between 6-18 weeks.

Do be aware of claims management companies offering “fast pay outs” or not explaining the process fully. All Claims Management companies acting on behalf on consumers must follow the same procedure, and therefore time scales.

How will I be updated of my claims progress?

You will receive updates when we submit your claim to your lender, throughout the process and when we receive a response from your lender. If we need additional information at any point or need to ask any questions, a member of the Reclaim Experts team will be touch. Likewise, we are always here to help if you have any questions or queries during the process as well.

Simply submit your claim through our online application form, and once received we will investigate your loan claim. In you want to reclaim without the assistance of a claims management company, contact the lender directly. This will save you the cost of using a professional service typically around 30%.

What information do you require?

When submitting your loan claim, you will need to details of your original loan, the lender you borrowed it from, as well as some other details that will assist us in making the claim like for example, your name, address etc.

Do I need to use a company to submit my claim?

If you wish to claim against your lender, you can do this yourself directly with them and even if they reject your claim you can still take this to the Financial Ombudsman Service (http://www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk). If you aren’t sure how to make the claim, you can get free, impartial advice from consumer organisations.

Can You Offer Debt Advice?

No, our service is purely claims related. For free, impartial advice we recommend the Government funded Money Advice Service (https://www.moneyadviceservice.org.uk) or Step Change (https://www.stepchange.org).
