£14,000 for car finance

Hello Rachel,I am looking to get finance for a round £14,000. I have a monthly income after tax of £2200. I have a CCJ which is 4.5 years old and is satisfied and 2 satisfied defaults. No other arrears. Unfortunately I took out a number of Payday loans late last year / early this year, but paid them off gradually over the past 9 months, rather than in one go. As a result of this i have multiple Paydayloans on my credit file (all settled). Will there be a chance I could get finance with this on my file and with my previous history? I do have a mortgage with imppecable history.

Answer

Hi Bruce, we could help you but you'd need a minimum of £1500 deposit. Is this possible? Car loan lenders don't look kindly on people who have taken out payday loans as they seem to be taking out one loan to re-pay another. However, as you have a clean mortgage this will certainly help. If you have the deposit required please apply on our site and respond to me with your reference number so that i can look into your case. Kind Regard, Rachel

Hello Rachel, £1500 deposit won't be a problem, but will take me a month or so to sort out. The payday loan thing is annoying as I didn't realise that the company would record a "new" loan every time I made a partial payment, rather than a full one. Do you have any experience of dealing with people who have previously taken out a PDL ?

Answer

Hi Bruce, yes it is still possible to help you but some lenders won;t accept you due to taking out payday loans but there are other options - it just narrows them down somewhat. Looking forward to receiving your application when you have your deposit ready.

Thanks Rachel, will start saving now. Incidently, do I have to purchase one of your own stock of used cars or can I locate a car and you sort the finance on that?

Answer

Hi Bruce, both are options to be honest. We have over 500 cars to choose from and if we don't have anything you fancy we can source you the exact car you want through our supply network. If that fails you can choose you car from any dealer. Rachel

Thanks Rachel. Do you generally work then at a 10% deposit ie £18000 finance = £1800 deposit etc? Or does that depend on the lender / credit history etc ?

Answer

Hi Bruce, yes - it all depends upon the lender and your credit history. But if your credit history isn't great you'll need a minimum of 10% deposit.

Hi Rachel, I have been turned down for finance on a £13,500 car. I was putting in a deposit of £7,700 but I have a really bad credit rating due to a messy divorce. I am in full time employment on around £44K. Do you think I might be able to help? Thanks. Brian

Answer

Hi Brian, It is hard to say without seeing an application but we do deal with a subprime lender who will lend up to £15-25k. However you will definitely require a deposit. Please make an application so we can see what we can do for you. Thanks
