Концепция смежных кредитных договоров в праве ЕС и ее значение для российского законодательства

Закон. 2017. № 4. С. 43-58.

The author researches the European legal concept of linked credit agreements, which provides an imperative civil liability of the banks and other financial institutions for the delivery and quality of goods and services supplied by their clients. The concept is aimed at reducing such asymmetries as a lack of knowledge of the consumer about the reliability of suppliers of goods, services that are purchased on credit, the quality of goods and services, as well as the inability of the consumer to influence the terms of the loan agreement and the contract of supply of goods or services purchased on credit. This concept has been developed in recent years at the level of the EU law, although it existed in some EU countries earlier. Russian consumer credit law sometimes unnecessarily uses truncated European approach to civil liability, which reduces the level of consumer protection on the market. The author believes it is advisable to implement the concept of linked credit agreements to the Russian legislation on the protection of consumers of financial services. The move away from the concept adopted in Russia, that the bank is only an abstract settlement center, can also have a positive influence on the development of the mortgage as a way to provide better housing for citizens.
