A much larger number of applications for default judgments on credit contracts must now be referred to a judge instead of being dealt with by the court administrator. This will significantly increase the workload of judges and could result in much longer debt enforcement procedures, which could lead to frustration among credit providers. As a result, the statutory requirements that apply to a credit provider, which are made available only to ancillary credits, are less onerous than for other credit providers, and the remedies made available to a consumer under such a secondary credit contract are more limited than the corrective measures made available to consumers in other generally statutory credit contracts.

When the creditor publishes the notification, the proof of the shipment registered to the consumer, accompanied by proof that the communication has reached the corresponding post office for delivery to the consumer, constitutes sufficient proof of the delivery (in the absence of contrary evidence). Unfortunately, in South Africa, too many people with too little money have been given too much credit. The end result is over-indebtedness that leads to an endless cycle of frustration for the consumer, who will never be able to repay his debts.  A credit provider may suspend a credit facility (for example. B a credit card or checking account) at any time if the consumer is late or close the facility by other means for ten business days. Section 5 of the Act provides that the parties applicable to ancillary customers relate to the chapters of the law, this document deals with the following question: this document calls the credit a « double-edged sword », since the power is not negligible between consumers and credit providers because of the poor level of consumer education and knowledge of consumer rights, and that the inability to enforce these rights through negotiation or legal action: this document is designed as an overview of the definition of « intermediate credit » within the meaning of National Credit Act 34 of 2005.

The crucial role of credit in the economy is explained in the policy framework of the Ministry of Trade and Industry of August 2004: a credit provider cannot enter into a ruthless credit contract with a consumer. Before entering into a credit contract, a lender must first take appropriate steps to evaluate the latter. In all credit contract proceedings, a court may declare a credit contract unwise. , with rent in increments, with fees and interest.
