The National Credit Act, 2005 (NCA) was introduced to create a more stable credit market and is applicable to all credit transactions. One of the main objectives of the Act is to establish new and improved rights for credit consumers. As a result, credit providers are obliged to comply with the NCA and enforce the new and improved rights. The purpose of this research paper is to determine if the NCA has established new and improved rights for home loan borrowers. The study utilised a mixed methods approach. Using a convenience sampling technique, a sample size of 250 respondents was used. The findings of the study revealed that borrowers’ rights are being enforced by credit providers by maintaining confidentiality, providing information to home loan borrowers on a regular basis and, most importantly, ensuring that home loan borrowers are well informed prior to entering the home loan credit agreement.
