Please get in touch if you cannot find the answer to your question below:
If you can demonstrate that you can afford the lease payments then yes you can lease a vehicle with no credit history. You will need to supply us with bank statements and proof of employment to demonstrate this.
A credit check is required to comply with the Financial Conduct Authority and anti-fraud regulations.
The credit check is used simply to confirm your address, and we are not looking at your credit score.
We only perform a credit check once we have pre-approved your application.
Once we have approved your application, we will post you a leasing contract and ask you to sign and return it.
The next step is to pay the agreed initial payment and the one-off administration fee.
Once we have received your signed contract, and your initial payment funds are cleared we will source your car or van.
If you can satisfy 2 key requirements then you qualify to lease a car:
Are you traceable? It is not simply a question of whether you are on the electoral roll. It helps, but we will not discount an individual if they are not on the electoral roll. We consider a number of other issues such as how long you have been living in your home (you do not need to own it) and how long you have been in your current employment/self-employment.
Can you afford the payments? We review your last three months bank statements to assess whether you are able to afford the monthly payments. We do not use any credit scoring methods.
We welcome applications from customers who have County Court Judgements (CCJs). We look at your current financial situation and whether you can afford the payments to make a decision, and not your credit score.
We welcome customers who have been discharged from bankruptcy. We look at your current financial situation and whether you can afford the payments, rather than use your credit score to make a decision.
We welcome applications from customers who are bankrupt or who have been discharged from bankruptcy. We look at your current financial situation and whether you can afford the payments, not your credit score.
We welcome customers with individual voluntary arrangements (IVAs). We look at your current financial situation and whether you can afford the payments rather than using your credit score.
You can only lease a car with CVS if you have bad credit. We accept all kinds of bad credit including IVA, CCJ, debt management plans and bankruptcy. As long as you can demonstrate you can afford the monthly payments we can help. We do not use your credit rating to make a decision.
Once you have completed your application for personal or business contract hire, we will ask you to supply some supporting documentation which is usually:
Proof of Identification – Copy of your valid driver’s licence
Proof of Income – Pay slips and bank statements for the last 3 months. If self-employed instead of pay slips please provide your
HMRC SA302 form confirming your latest tax calculation
Proof of Address – You can verify your address by providing a UK utility bill (gas, electricity, water, telephone landline) issued within 3 months. The name and address on the bill must match those in the lease application.
