Here are some of the most commonly asked questions regarding online finance.

 

WILL YOU CREDIT SCORE ME AND IF SO, WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

Credit scoring is the process used by financial services companies to evaluate the credit risk of new applicants. This technique will be applied to your application for online finance. Credit scoring works by awarding points for each answer given on the application form such as age, income and occupation, together with information obtained from credit reference agencies. This information allows us to produce consistent decisions, ensuring all our applicants are treated fairly. Credit scoring does not discriminate on the grounds of sex, race, religion or disability.

IF YOU DECLINE MY APPLICATION, WHAT IS THE REASON?

In addition to credit scoring, we also take into account confirmation of your identity, validation of certain application details, existing commitments and information held at the credit reference agencies. Though we are unable to provide you with a main reason for decline of your application, it is usually based on one, or a combination of the following:

Your credit score (note that every finance company will score you differently) 
Adverse credit reference agency information 
You are considered to be overcommitted 
You are aged under 18 
Your existing account performance with other lenders

WHAT TYPE OF INFORMATION DO CREDIT REFERENCE AGENCIES HOLD ABOUT ME?

Some of the information is public information, for example electoral roll, County Court Judgements and bankruptcies. Other lenders may also file information about accounts you hold with them for instance this could include your payment history and outstanding balance on these accounts. Any requests for credit, where a credit reference search has been undertaken, will also be filed, although the result of the request is not recorded.

HOW DO I OBTAIN A COPY OF THIS INFORMATION?

You should send a cheque for £2.00 made payable to the relevant company, together with details of all addresses at which you have lived over the last 6 years:

Consumer Help Desk Experian Limited PO Box 8000 Nottingham NG1 5GX 
Equifax Ltd., Credit File Advice Centre. PO Box 1140. Bradford, BD1 5US 
Consumer Services, Callcredit Limited, PO Box 491, LEEDS, LS3 1WZ

The above listed agencies will provide details of information relating via these addresses. If you believe that the information is incorrect, you can ask the agency to correct it.

IF MY APPLICATION IS NOT SUCCESSFUL, CAN I RE-APPLY?

Yes. We acknowledge that your circumstances change and just because we have refused a previous application, it does not mean that we'll automatically turn down a further request. We do suggest however, that you leave at least 6 months between applications.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO APPLY FOR ONLINE FINANCE?

To apply for finance, you must be over the age of 18, work at least 16 hours a week, in receipt of disability benefit, or be retired with an income. You must also be a resident of the United Kingdom and have lived in the UK for the last three years or more. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer online finance to residents of Eire. Homemakers aren't excluded from applying under their own names; however we will require the employment details of your spouse in order to process your application.

CAN I REQUEST DELIVERY TO AN ADDRESS OTHER THAN MY HOME?

In order to safeguard against fraudulent applications, we regret that we're able only to deliver goods to the home address of the applicant. Saturday morning deliveries can be arranged if this is more convenient for you.
