Article 20(2) amends Article 146 of the CSF by the fact that there is no question of a person advising debtors where (a) the debt in question is due under a `relevant agreement`; and (b) the provision of such advice constitutes a regulated activity. `Debtor advice` means advice to debtors in the event of the liquidation of debts contracted under consumer credit agreements (see the full definition in Section 145(6) of the CSF). Courts may also adopt “temporal orders” providing for either the payment by the debtor of an amount due to the creditor and remedying a breach of the agreement by the debtor, with the exception of non-payment of money or both. These orders are made, at the discretion of the courts, following an application for an enforceable title.  Temporal orders may also cover the legal bond for leases or leases.  If the court finds that the property in dispute or as security is threatened or damaged, it may issue protection orders preventing the use of the property. This brings into force section 35 of the General Credit Act, 1965, which was repealed by the Consumer Credit Act.  4. Consumer credit and rental agreements should be amended to include references to the improved redress system and the ombudsman. Part III of the Act applies directly to ancillary credit businesses that require a licence. As with standard credit agreements, agreements entered into by an unlicensed trader can only be enforced against the other party if the Director General of Fair Trade adopts an injunction that applies to the contract. Prior to the Consumer Credit Act, consumer credit legislation was slapdash and focused on certain areas and not consumer credit as a whole, such as money lenders and leases. Following the Crowther Commission report of 1971, it was decided that a comprehensive reform of consumer credit law was needed and a bill was submitted to Parliament.
Although its progress was interrupted by Parliament by a general election, the law quickly came into force on July 31, 1974, thanks to the support of the government and the opposition. Part II contains definitions for many types of agreements covered by the Act. There are three main types of agreements; regulated consumer credit agreements, regulated consumer leases and partially regulated contracts. . . .
