IVA, CCJ & DRO applications welcome

Titanic Finance was set up with the goal of providing access to Car Finance for anyone with a less than perfect credit history, due to a CCJ, DRO, or an IVA. Having a poor credit history doesn’t mean you can’t borrow money to buy the car you need, but it may limit your choice of lenders.

We recognise that if you’re in an IVA or recently completed an IVA, you’re addressing or have addressed your financial problems and are working towards a more sustainable financial future.

We work closely with specialist lenders who can provide car finance for those currently in an IVA and those who have successfully completed an IVA, even if you have a poor credit rating. The application process is straightforward and hassle-free.

What finance options are available to someone in a IVA?

Hire Purchase (HP)

Hire purchase (HP) is one of the most common ways to purchase a car. With an HP deal, you are often required to pay monthly payments to repay the balance of the price of the car plus interest over a period of time. It is a cost-effective way of financing a car if you wish to own it outright at the end of the agreement.

Personal Contract Purchase (PCP)

Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) usually requires you to make an initial deposit.

What makes PCP that bit different is that monthly payments are usually at a lower cost, however, when you get to the end of your agreement, there is a final payment, referred to as a balloon payment that must be made if you wish to keep the car.

Once your agreement is finished, you’ll have three options;

  1. Purchase the car by paying the final balloon payment
  2. Hand the car back
  3. Part exchange for a new car

Before signing up to any finance agreement be sure to research all your options to ensure you get the best deal for you.

Can you get car finance while in an IVA?

One common question that we often receive from clients in an IVA is whether or not they can purchase a car on finance or can they take out finance to address a balloon payment when a PCP agreement ends.

In the UK each year, over a million cars are being bought on finance. However, individuals in an IVA can find accessing affordable finance to be a difficult problem, due to problems and limits accessing credit. However, finding a finance package to suit you is not impossible and we work with specialist lenders.

Applying for Car finance during an IVA

If you’re in an IVA you will need permission from your Insolvency Practitioner (IP) to obtain car finance.

You will need to justify to your IP why you require a finance deal on a car; perhaps public transport is costing too much each month and a car on finance would be the cheaper option, some people may require a car to commute to and from work in order to make a living or maybe you require a car to get the children safely to school. Your IP will decide whether or not this request is reasonable based on your circumstances and they will take into consideration your income and expenditure to ascertain whether or not committing to a car finance loan is manageable given your budget.

Being in an IVA will normally limit the number of car finance lenders willing to consider an application. However, we work with a specialist panel lenders who are willing to consider applications from individuals who are currently in or have previously been in an IVA.
