Can I get car finance with a CCJ?

In short, the answer is yes, you can get car finance with a CCJ. We get that life can be tricky, and sometimes you end up with a CCJ, making it look like you can't get a car. But we're here to make it easy.

Securing car finance with a County Court Judgment (CCJ) might seem challenging, as many lenders tend to be wary of applicants with bad credit, especially if decisions are automated. However, the good news is that it's not a dead-end road. Companies like CarFinance specialize in helping individuals with less-than-perfect credit histories, including those with CCJs, obtain car finance. Our team of experts is well-versed in the applicable laws and regulations, ensuring that you have a legitimate path to car ownership, even with a CCJ in your personal history.

Here's how it works:

  1. Figure Out What You Need: Decide how much money you want to borrow and how long you'd like to take to pay it back. You can use our car finance calculator to see what it'll cost you each month.
  2. Apply Online: Fill out our easy online application form, which is your first step towards getting car finance.
  3. Credit Check: Before we send your application to our lenders, we do a 'soft search' or 'quotation search.' It's a simple credit check that won't hurt your credit score. We check your income and your ability to make monthly repayments, which is important if you have a CCJ.
  4. Submit Your Application: Once we're happy with the soft search results, we pass your application to our lenders. Usually, you'll hear back from them within 24 hours.

Can I get car finance with a satisfied CCJ?

The good news is, while having a satisfied CCJ may make it a bit easier to obtain car finance, lenders may still consider you a higher-risk borrower. At CarFinance, we aim to make the process of obtaining car finance as smooth as possible, and having a satisfied CCJ won't prevent you from driving away in your dream car. We evaluate your application based on your current circumstances and financial stability, not just your past.

Getting car finance with a satisfied CCJ is possible, but it's essential to understand that even a satisfied CCJ can affect your credit score and impact your ability to secure credit. When a CCJ is marked as 'satisfied,' it means you've paid it after the judgment date. This status remains on your credit file for six years from the date of issue.

FAQ's

  • What is a CCJ?

    A County Court Judgment, commonly known as a CCJ, is a court order issued by a county court against an individual who owes money to another person or entity. It represents a legal obligation to repay a debt that hasn't been fulfilled. It is a formal decision that you owe a debt and haven't made the necessary payments.

    A CCJ can have a potential negative impact on your credit score and financial situation, making it challenging to secure loans, including car finance. However, at CarFinance, we believe that everyone deserves a second chance, and a CCJ shouldn't be a roadblock to your dreams.

  • How long is a CCJ registered against you?
    A County Court Judgment (CCJ) remains on your credit file for six years from the date it was issued. During this period, lenders and credit agencies can see the CCJ when assessing your creditworthiness.
  • Can I get car finance with CCJs and defaults?
    Securing car finance with CCJs (County Court Judgments) and defaults may be more challenging, but it is possible. These marks on your credit file might make you appear to have bad credit, which could deter some lenders. However, there are specialist lenders who are more willing to work with individuals in these circumstances. They offer car finance options tailored to your specific situation. While approval is not guaranteed and depends on various factors, it's essential to know that there are options available to help you get behind the wheel, even if you have CCJs and defaults on your credit record.
  • Can I get guaranteed car finance with a CCJ?
    While there is no such thing as guaranteed car finance, it is possible to obtain car finance with a County Court Judgment (CCJ). Specialist lenders are more willing to work with individuals who have CCJs on their record, but approval is not guaranteed and depends on various factors.
  • Does a CCJ affect car insurance?
    Yes, a CCJ can affect your car insurance. Car insurance providers often consider your credit score when determining your insurance premium. Having a CCJ on your credit file may result in higher insurance premiums, as it may suggest a higher level of risk to the insurer.
  • How much can I borrow with a CCJ?
    The amount you can borrow with a County Court Judgment (CCJ) on your record depends on several factors, including the specific lender's policies, your individual financial circumstances, and the purpose of the loan. Lenders may be more cautious when offering loans to individuals with CCJs, so the loan amount may be lower, and the interest rates may be higher. With us, you can borrow from £4k to £40k
  • How to avoid a CCJ
    To avoid a County Court Judgment (CCJ), practice responsible financial management by paying bills and debts on time. In cases of financial difficulties, communicate with creditors to find a manageable solution and consider dispute resolution if you believe a CCJ is unjust.
  • Ways to improve your credit file after a CCJ
    To rebuild your credit file after a County Court Judgment (CCJ), make timely payments on financial obligations, demonstrate responsible financial behaviour, consider credit-building products, seek specialist lenders, monitor your credit report, and, if necessary, seek professional advice. With dedication and responsible financial management, you can enhance your creditworthiness and improve your chances of obtaining car finance and other financial products.
