Will I be accepted for finance?
Whether you're accepted for finance or not depends on many different factors. At Duologi they have a dedicated credit team that uses their bespoke credit engine to help them reach decisions. Duologi will perform a search with one or more Credit Reference Agencies to conduct their creditworthiness and affordability assessment to help them make their decision. This search will appear on your credit file and will be visible to other lenders if you apply for credit with them in future.
In some cases, your application will be referred for further assessment. You may be asked to provide some more information to help Duologi make their decision. If this does happen, you will be told whether your application has been accepted as soon as the decision is made.
