In the new year with consumer debt more expensive

The new Civil Code provides for penalties for breach of duty, which of course will affect consumers. A breakthrough interest is interest that has not been authorized for consumer contracts.

The new Civil Code specifies that the debt payments go first to the costs associated with the recovery of the debt, then interest, then the interest agreed contract, and only in the last row of the principal, ie the original debt. If the debtor does not pay under this order, will pay interest on the debt and accessories, including actual interest, thereby repaying significantly more expensive.

"U contractual penalties, there have been one important change - still true that when traders" overshot "and set out in the contract fine is excessive, the court declared the entire fine invalid for conflict with morality. The debtor had paid only the amount due and any interest on arrears. Now, the court may reduce a fine only, and therefore the borrower always pays at least part of the fine, "explains
Miloš gin.
