Supreme Court decides on assignment and variation of CFAs

Published on 07 April 2017

In Plevin v Paragon Personal Finance Limited the Supreme Court determined that a CFA had been validly assigned to a new firm and that variations to it after 1 April 2013 were not new agreements.

This concerns a review of the costs assessment which followed the Supreme Court’s earlier decision in Plevin v Paragon Personal Finance Limited. The claimant Mrs. Plevin brought a claim in the County Court concerning the unfair relationship provisions of the Consumer Credit Act 1974 and alleged misselling of payment protection insurance.
