“Honestly stay well clear me and my partner were well...”

Written on: 14/11/2009

Honestly stay well clear me and my partner were well and truly duped! We went and met with them found them nice at first then towards the end of the application they loan adviser told us we couldn't have the loan until I took out payment protection insurance. This was a LIE! we didn't need it as I found out a year later! This insurance then took our loan to over £10,000 we only borrowed £7500. Don't touch them with a bargpole. When I called and complained giving the name of the loan adviser the… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/10/2009

Very poor company to deal with! The staff are very helpful and friendly but they are hiding a very dodgy company behind them.
I was recently searching for a personal loan, i had used Experian beforehand to check my credit score was good enough to apply for a loan, to which it came back "Good" almost "Excellent", so i applied to Blackhorse after seeing the 8.7%APR on the website.
After speaking to someone on the phone and being "approved" i was invited to my local office to sort out the… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/08/2009

Use these guys at your peril!! The choice of a Black Horse to front the company really should be a wolf in sheeps clothing!!! My partner and I have got an excellent rating and like most of the others on here were told we had been approved for AN 8% APR but when we got to their office it had been hacked up to 39%!!! These jokers are just hunting for the desperate out there who cant get credit anywhere else and are just glad to be accepted (at any cost). We complained to the Ombuds and the OFT… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/06/2009 by skellys (1 review written)

Applied for a Black Horse loan and accepted. Yes, we had to travel 12 mile to an office in Oxford to finalise, but on getting there it was well worth it. We had £12,000 on credit cards, one at a rate of 36%(!) APR and we wanted to consolidate these into a sigle loan. Black Horse had offered a max of £9000 max loan at 20.9% APR on the phone. our advisor, was great. He looked into our application further when we got to the office and changed the loan amount to £11,500 and an APR of 15.9%… Read Full Review

“STAY WELL CLEAR!”

Written on: 22/06/2009 by tw42 (1 review written)

STAY WELL CLEAR!

I applied for a loan online with Black Horse Loans and was called later on and informed my application was succussful and all i needed to do was pop into the nearest office to complete the paperwork.

However, everything changed after i had arrived to sign the documents at the BlackHorse office.

The APR suddenly went from 18.9% which was quoted at the time of my application being accepted to a wopping 38% when i visited the office.

This company is a joke and please be warned!… Read Full Review

Black Horse Finance. Well I got a car on finance through black horse last October, even though my credit wasnt all that good and they took me on straight away. Paying a little more in interest but only about £15 a month. Not missed a payment and they are fantastic to deal with. Very helpfull and friendly. Then 2 weeks ago i took a £1000 loan out to secure my venue for my wedding. I went to see them on the Thursday and I had the money in my bank account by Tuesday. I was rejected by Yorkshire… Read Full Review

“This is my second loan with Blackhorse - received one...”

Written on: 23/09/2008 by happypersonagain (1 review written)

This is my second loan with Blackhorse - received one in around last September when no one else would give me a loan (poor credit rating) and so decided to try them anyway - nothing ventured, nothing gained.
Thought at that time that if I did get a loan from Blackhorse then it would help me out of my hole and that was also chance for me to improve my credit rating and luckily for me they approved my loan application at that time - helped me out of a hole and I haven't looked back. Kept my… Read Full Review

I am very disappointed. I appreciate a mistake may have been made, but on two occasions they told me the loan was approved and then I had a call to say the money was going into my account. Half an hour later, it was all off and I was very upset. I did not get much sympathy… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/05/2008 by soxsandpants (2 reviews written)

We don't have a good credit rating due to circumstances in the past, however during the last 5 years we have been paying things off slowly but surely. However, despite the fact that no payments have been missed on anything we are still turned doen by the big companies for anything from a decent bank account to a mortgage. Black Horse however took our recent credit history into account over the past events. They did acknowledge our ccjs but noted that they were being paid and no payments on… Read Full Review

where to start on the black horse sorry trail , after taking out a loan from black hoarse you are given two month free payments. well not quite. ahhh did no one say you are charged interest on the amount outstanding. at the time i was paying '£90.00 per month interest. all went well till my partner and i split up. as it was a joint loan i was left to pay all payments. black hoarse not interested in splitting loan. but did suggest taking a further loan out and pay half the original loan off… Read Full Review

Sue Webb's Response to peter hend1's Review

Written on: 08/08/2008

I was sold an insurance cover with a Loan from Blackhorse.
<br/>I paid &pound;3,300 and was told this was Life, accident, sickness etc.
<br/>When I became redundant, they said read the small print, you do not have a TICK in the recommended insurance which means yours is life policy only.
<br/>My first loan was 4months old when I cleared this &pound;13,000 loan off and borrowed a second amount of &pound;11,000. for house improvements. I was charged again &pound;3,300 but the first &pound;3,300 was not discounted, I just found out. I am currently asking why as I only had the first loan 4months........

At least they are transparent about some of their keyfacts. They just don't tell you it would be a nightmare to get a top-up loan. They refused to approve the loan unless I took out a PPI..... bad bad!!!! I have since cancelled this after 2 years and asking claiming back on this missold policy!… Read Full Review

I had loan agreed till I refused the PPI which had at no time been discussed in meeting with advisor, was then advised that they were no longer in a position to offer finance.

Written on: 20/02/2008 by blemtroot (17 reviews written)

The only reason I took out a Black Horse loan is that I took advantage of an interest-free finance offer when I purchased a new settee, and they were the provider. After I received the agreement, I noticed that the payment protection had been added as a matter of course. I contacted them by phone to be told that it was the fault of the furniture retailer, and my problem was with them . In effect, they suggested that they were powerless to cancel their own insurance! I contacted them a second… Read Full Review
