  • IVA’s – If you have had an IVA agreement in the past then we are in a strong position to offer you Car Credit as your credit file should be on its way to a higher credit score (based on repaying previous bad debt or catching up with missing or last repayments). If you are currently in an IVA at the moment we will need written permission from your insolvency practitioner that you’re allowed to borrow money forwards Car Finance, However most will grant you permission based on a Car being deemed a necessity to getting to and from work ETC.. So if you wish to apply then it might be worth asking your IVA company first if they will say yes.


Helpful tips on Applying for Car Finance with bad credit!

  • We would advise catching up any missed or last payments for any accounts that maybe in arrears.
  • Provide a larger deposit when applying for Car Finance. This helps reduce the risk involved lending the money forwards a vehicle as you are not borrowing the whole amount the vehicle is worth. However this isn’t always necessary as single months repayment upfront is normally enough.
  • Adding a joint hirer to your application. If you have a partner then adding them to the agreement to strengthen the application based on more credit history to go on potentially more income has a good effect on whether a lender will Approve the Car Finance Application. This can also help increase your credit limit and or some times lower the APR based on a lower risk deal.


How applying for a car loan affects your credit rating

We work with all the UK’s Bad Car Finance Lenders in order to offer many different types of people the credit they have applied for. This is because every lender has different credit lending policy’s, rates and finance terms, putting us in the best position to help you get Approved with a Bad Credit history.
