Although we are unable to provide you with a reason if your application is declined, it is usually based on one or more of the following reasons:
- Adverse credit reference agency information
- Your credit score (note that every finance company will score you differently)
- You are aged under 18

What type of information do credit agencies hold about me?
Some of the information is public information, for example electoral roll, County Court Judgments 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.
