Advantages of Classic Credit
Overview of Classic Credit
1- How quickly will my application be processed?
If your online application is received between 9am and 11pm, in most cases you will know immediately if your application has been accepted or declined. However, credit applications can be referred and if this is the case you will be notified as soon as a decision has been reached.
2- If my application is accepted, what happens next?
If your application for credit is accepted you must eSign the credit agreement to complete your order. Your order will be despatched to you once V12 Finance has confirmed that your agreement has been eSigned, which only takes a few minutes.
3- What is Credit Scoring?
Credit scoring is the process used by financial services companies to evaluate the credit risk of new applicants. This technique will be applied to your application for online finance. Credit scoring works by awarding points for each answer given on the application form such as age, income and occupation, together with information obtained from credit reference agencies. This information allows us to produce consistent decisions, ensuring all our applicants are treated fairly. Credit scoring does not discriminate on the grounds of sex, race, religion, disability or colour.
4- If I have been refused credit can I apply again?
We acknowledge that your circumstances change and just because we have refused a previous application, it does not mean that we will automatically turn down a further request. We do suggest, however, that you leave at least 6 months between applications.
5- Who is my financial agreement with?
Thurlow Champness & Son Limited work via V12 Finance Ltd. Your financial agreement will be with V12 Finance Ltd.

7- Why has my application been declined?
In addition to credit scoring, we also take into account confirmation of your identity, validation of certain application details, existing commitments and information held at the credit reference agencies. Although we are unable to provide you with a reason if your application is declined, it is usually based on one or more of the following reasons:
- Adverse credit reference agency information
- Your credit score (note that every finance company will score you differently)
- You are aged under 18
- You are considered to be overcommitted
- Poor account performance with other lenders
8- What type of information do credit agencies hold about me?
Some of the information is public information, for example electoral roll, County Court Judgements and bankruptcies. Other lenders may also file information about accounts you hold with them, for instance, this could include your payment history and outstanding balance on these accounts. Any requests for credit, where a credit reference search has been undertaken, will also be filed, although the result of the request is not recorded.
