ive just applied for a sofa through dfs 4 years free credit over the phone and have a little question , i did it all in my name as hubby has an iva so had no chance, my problem is im a stay at home mum so i had nothing to say money wise that was in my name but the pitiful amount of ctc i get and cb. though monthly i get 600 in my account as each month hubby sends over 550 (hoping all this makes sense) anyway so when guy asked what hubby did and how much our annual income i said hubbys but forgot to include mine although its not much extra would only have made a grande all so dif but still would have made a slight dif ( though i did mention to guy i get some previously)
anyway back to my question how likely do you think it is dfs will actually accept me? ive never tried to get a sofa through them before so dont know how they work it all out but im hoping as i have a certain amount of £600 in my account a month and all they need is £50 they will accept or do you rekon hubbys iva will pretty much squash any chance i have.
hope all this makes sense i tried to explain best i could but im not very good at explaining things as you can see
its not a massive prob if they say no as we can afford to buy one end of feb i just would rather do it this way plus there delivery is 8 weeks and i need it soon as so longer i leave it longer it takes if u get me.
anyway just wanted opinions in what you think as it takes them 3-4 days to decide.
thanks and sorry if i lost you or confused you at all xxx
ahh see that what i thought, i was hoping in slight chances i wouldnt be involved in the iva as it was before me and ive never had any debt and have always payed off accounts on time or before need be but i assumed now im part of it, ah well , no harm in trying though hey
my ohs credit is terrible and thats not effected mine in anyway.
but id say because ur not actualy working its a very slim chance of u getting the credit, if u tried getting it on credit but paying for it straight away each month u might have more of a chance also if u add on payment protection that will boost ur chances
it all depends on your credit score, but i imagine as your married you'll be linked to your hubbys IVA & all his debts on your credit profile so I wouldnt hold out too much hope!
If you have joint accounts you "may" be linked financially but his debts will not be on your credit profile. I have an IVA which finishes this month and a joint account and my OH has excellent credit according to the rating agencies and there is no record of me on his. Your best option is to check your credit file, Equifax is good and free for a month, and look under finacial associations.
