Can i have a car loan if i already have a personal loan?

I have taken out a £15000 personal loan for home improvements. But i need car finance to get a car. I am keeping to all my repayments on my current loan. Can i obtain car finance?

Hi Sandeep, yes - this is completely possible. If anything the personal loan will strengthen your credit rating if you keep all the payments up to date.

I take it you have a UK licence and are on the electoral roll at your current address? Also do you have a deposit of any kind and how much are you after? Car finance is very similar to a personal loan anyway. The loan is just secured on the car when you take out car finance.

So, basically if you don't pay your repayments on time the finance company can come and take the "asset" (your car) away. With a personal loan this isn't possible as it isn't secured against anything and you could have used the loan for multiple purposes.

Please make an application when you're ready and email me the reference number. Kind Regards, Edwin
