How does my credit score affect my options?

As with many lenders, your score will affect how much your monthly repayments will be. If your score is lower, it might mean your payments are larger. There are many things you can do if your score is low and you want to improve it—our top tips would be

1) Keep up to date with your bills, it’ll show lenders you can keep up to date with payments

2) Fix any mistakes on your report, by checking it regularly you can make sure its up to date with no mistakes.

If any doubt, contact the Central Credit Register to discuss your specific case.

How can I calculate car finance payments?

You can use our free car finance calculator here, to get an approximation of your monthly repayments. The estimation is based on; the amount you want to borrow, your repayment term, and your credit score. 

How long is the process?

Once we have all your details we can provide a provisional approval within 30 minutes of application and check customer proofs within 1 hour.

What forms of ID can I use?

You’ll need your driving license, a recent pay slip and 3 months of bank statements.

How to check for existing finance on a car

Speak to your car finance provider and request a full history of the car. Alternatively, you can use a free site to check. Simply enter your car registration and it will tell you if a car has outstanding finance on it.

What would my finance journey with LMO look like?

Here we show the introducer application journey and the direct customer journey (direct customer journey in green).

1) You submit a proposal to LMO via your dealer and the deal is underwritten and reviewed. Customer will apply on line, we will review the application and issue an initial approval (providing it has been accepted), notify customer who can then gather the standard proofs and email them over to us.

2) If you’re eligible and have been approved for finance we will advise the Dealer or Broker (depending on how you’re purchasing your vehicle). Customer is issued with a full approval and finds a vehicle ( if they haven’t done already). Dealer is checked out.

3) You will then go through the terms of conditions of the contract, and then be asked to sign finance agreements. Quote is provided to the customer and LMO will contact the dealer for invoice. Once invoice has been received, documents are issued for signing.

4) We then wait for the Dealer or Broker will then submit the proofs, finance documents and invoice to LMO, who will then validate all documents, and confirm the details over the phone with you, at which point if all the information is valid we will then pay the dealer / broker for the car. Validation call is completed, funds are then transferred to the dealer.

5) Once this has been done, we will transfer your funds to the dealer

The main difference between direct customer application and introducer application is we take charge of the process from start to finish.

All communication apart from invoice request is directly with the customer.

Can I settle my agreement early?

Yes, you can settle your agreement anytime by contacting us and requesting a settlement figure.

Can I change my monthly costs to payments?

HP Agreements are a fixed credit agreement, so you cannot change your monthly costs to payments.

Do I need a deposit?

For agreements like HP, you will agree with us on a deposit and it will affect your month repayments (the bigger the deposit, the smaller the monthly repayments).

We also offer £0 deposit finance in most cases.

Can I apply for car finance if my credit isn't perfect?

Credit scores are important but don’t dictate your eligibility. If you are unsure as to whether you can be approved for finance with bad credit, visit our car finance calculator where you can receive an approximation of your repayments with differing credit scores.
