Can i Get Car Finance After My DRO - Debt Relief Order?

Hi Rachel, My Debt Relief Order (DRO) is due to finish in April 2013. I will have £1000 as a deposit plus a part exchange of a car worth around £1000.

Will i be able to get help with finance after the DRO has finished? Thanks
Asked by Sammy J

Hi Sammy, thank you for your question and apologies for the delay in responding.

The answer to your question is Yes, we'd love to help. The fact that you'll have a £2000 deposit is also a massive help. I take it you have a full UK licence, can prove your income and are on the electoral roll (this isn't mandatory but does help)? Lastly, have you kept your current active agreements up to date payment wise? If so, we'll have a reasonable chance of getting you accepted.

If approved we provide a no obligation quote and you can buy a car from any UK dealer. Please make an application when you're ready. Kind Regards, Rachel

I currently have a DRO on my credit report. Since then I have managed to get a contract phone, which I have been paying on time for the last year. I was also accepted on a credit card and have been paying for just over a year. I start a new job this week

Asked by Kevin Fenwick
July 11, 2012

Hi Kevin, thank you for your question. It certainly sounds like you're getting back on track and as you have some current clean credit this will certainly go in your favour. As you will be classed as self employed we will need to see 3 months bank statements before we could get a deal completed. If you don't have these yet please apply when you can have these available. If approved you can get a car from any dealer. Kind Regards, Rachel

Hi Emerlou, thank you for using our Q&A. All I can suggest is that you apply as it is hard to say whether we will get you approved without seeing your credit profile. It may help if you put an application through with your partner so we can see what the best option for you would be. we have however been able to secure previous customers in similar situations to yourself an approval. I hope this helps, Rachel

Asked by Joetex
July 11, 2012

Hi Joetex, Thank you for your question. There are advantages and disadvantages of buying a car on a credit card that are all explained here. However, you wouldn't be able to transfer the debt from the credit card and into your debt management plan. Have you had your credit card since you entered your DMP? I'd be surprised if it still worked if you had it pre entering the DMP. Anyway i'm confident we could potentially help and perhaps at a better rate than your credit card company can offer as you have some current clean credit. We do also have lenders on our panel that help people in "DM" plans so please don't let that put you off making an application with us. If approved with us the loan will help you improve your credit score and we do provide a no obligation quote and let you buy a car from any dealer. Please apply here (when you are ready). Have a good evening. Rachel

Asked by Danielle
July 11, 2012

Hi Danielle, thank you for your question. We can help people who have completed their debt relief orders but the vast majority tend to be employed. There is a chance we can get you approved but we'd need to show bank statements to the lender detailing your income to show you can afford the monthly payments. I take it that you are currently on benefits? Please make an application and we'll try our best to get you accepted. We deal with many specialist lenders so we have the greatest chance of getting you approved. If accepted we provide a no obligation quote and you can choose a car from any dealer. Kind Regards, Rachel

Hi Marnie, we'd love to help and if we get you approved £4000 shouldn't be an issue. What arrears do you currently have and what is the total amount of outstanding debt left to pay? Do you have a deposit or part exchange to put into the deal? Lastly, have you applied anywhere else online and if so, what has been the response? Regards, Rachel

Hi Vicky, unfortunately due to your circumstances you won't be able to obtain high street rates but 33% does seem high. Where have you been accepted and what is the finance company? I'm confident that if we can get you approved we'll be able to beat the 33% you have been offered. If approved the £6000 over 4 years won't be a problem. Kind Regards, Rachel

Asked by Leanne
July 11, 2012

Hi Leanne, thanks for using our Q&A. We are able to get approvals for customers currently in a debt managment plan but the lenders who approve such customers usually require a deposit (yours seems plently).We would obviously need to see an application so we can see the rest of your credit to see if it is strong enough, but as long as you are showing intent to improve your credit profile and are registered on the electoral roll there shouldn't be too much of a problem. I hope this helps, Rachel

Asked by Darren W
July 11, 2012

Hi Darren, thank you for your question. As you're currently in a DM plan do you have any live agreements for payments that you make on time each month or do all your active accounts say "defaulted" as you're in a payment arrangement? It's difficult to predict whether we'd get you approved without seeing your credit profile as each lender we deal with has different criteria. We have approved people in the past who have been in DM plans so there is a chance and £7000 isn't a huge amount (i've seen a great deal worse). Please make an application and we'll see what we can do. Thank you.
