Bank statement conduct

One of the most important factors to bad credit finance applications is bank statement conduct. When you apply for bad credit car finance the lenders almost always require a copy of your bank statements, so make sure you never go into overdrawn balance.

Ensuring your account always has sufficient funds to cover regular payments and direct debits is extremely important. If you can show a history of savings – even small amounts, this can drastically help your applications chances of being approved as well.

Lenders look at savings as additional income that can be used to service a car loan or other type of finance. Bad credit car loan financiers will ask to review your banks statements for the last three to six months, if your account has fallen into arrears during this time most lenders will require a minimum three month period when this hasn’t occurred.

Employment history and job status

Without employment it’s becoming increasingly difficult to gain car finance. Bad finance lenders are looking for stable employment – casual, part-time or full-time.

If you’re casual, having a track record of 12 months or more in the same role or industry is highly advantageous.

This establishes evidence of what your future income and capability to service the loan repayments will be like. Part-time and full-time employment usually requires passing of your probationary period, and a stable history within your job and industry.

Residential arrangements

One of the least understood components of how reputable lenders assess your stability is the more your move house, the less stable you’re appear. Many have legitimate reasons for this such as being promoted to another state or office in a different city.

If you have evidence of this, it will assist your loan applications chance of being approved.

However, the underlying fact here is that living in a transient way is seen as unstable and a high risk. If you’re planning to apply for car finance in the near future, you need to factor this into your consideration.
