To evaluate the credit risk of a new applicant, credit scoring will be used by the financial services to ensure that finance can be accepted d. Credit scoring essentially works by awarding a number of points for each answer given by the applicant, such as age, income & occupation, and also any other information gathered by credit reference agencies. This information is used to create the financial decision whilst also ensuring that all our applicants are treated fairly. It is important to note that this process does not discriminate on the grounds of sex, race, religion or disability.
Whilst primarily using the credit scoring process, we also take into account confirmation of your identity, validation of certain application details, existing commitments and information that’s currently held at the credit reference agencies. We are unable to provide you with the specific reason for your application being declined, but it is usually based on one or a combination of the following:
- Your current credit score
- Adverse credit reference agency information
- You are considered to be overcommitted
- You are aged under 18
- You are not a UK resident
- Your existing account performance with other lenders
Some information that they access is already public information, for example, electoral roll, County Court Judgements and bankruptcies. Other Lenders may also file information about accounts that you currently hold with them; for instance this could include your payment history and any outstanding balance on these accounts. It’s important to note that 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.
To obtain a copy, you need to 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 Center. PO Box 1140. Bradford, BD1 5US
Consumer Services, Callcredit Limted, PO Box 491, LEEDS, LS3 1WZ
The above-listed agencies will be able to provide details of information that relates to these addresses. If you believe that any of the information is incorrect, you can ask the agency to correct it.
Yes you can. Sometimes circumstances can change and just because we have refused an application in the past, 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.
We will only be able to give you the answer to this once you have completed the application form and advised us on which hot tub you want to purchase. The repayment amount entirely depends on:
- How much you want to borrow
- How long you want to take to pay it back
- The deposit amount
However, before you sign the finance agreement, you’ll be given time to look through the payment schedule to ensure that you’re happy with it and all of the terms. If you’re not, you are under absolutely no obligation to continue with the finance.
No, there is absolutely no charge for arranging finance. You may, however, be required to pay for any optional services that you choose to pay extra for, such as delivery or installation, or perhaps a longer warranty charge.
Our finance deals have been created to suit you, so if you don’t have a large deposit to finance the initial part of your hot tub, then you can simply put down a small amount. Monthly payments are also kept low, so you will be able to repay without any issues.
If at any point you wish to pay off the remaining balance of your finance loan, all you have to do is simply call the lender and they will arrange a final payment with you.
In order to safeguard against any fraudulent applications that could occur, we regret to inform you that we’re only able to deliver goods to the home address of the applicant.
