Consumer credit - Do you know your rights and responsibilities?

BERL is undertaking a research project on behalf of the Commerce Commission regarding different types of credit products. This includes credit and store cards, personal and car loans, mortgages, pay-day loans, buy-now/pay-later schemes, and shop trucks who extend credit. 

We would like to invite you to participate in a discussion board in early September.

Your participation will support this research by helping to understand whether people understand their rights and responsibilities when they sign a credit contract, if they take advice before borrowing, and what things influence people making decisions about loans and credit.

This report and findings will be used to help the Commerce Commission in developing policies and strategies to ensure fair operation of the consumer credit sector and support the wellbeing of New Zealanders.
