The Pete’s Loan Machine service
Pete’s Loan is a credit broker and provides the service of introducing our clients to lenders in the short term consumer credit industry.
We provide a number of services via online applications. By making an application on this website you are also entering into an agreement with us.
We do not provide loans or finance and do not represent the interests of or act on behalf of any individual lender or financier. By applying with us you consent to us sending your application to the lenders we work with so they can review your application for credit. The Lenders we work with will analyse your application for credit and will conduct a form of credit worthiness assessment and affordability assessment based on the details you have submitted. In assessing your application it is likely the lender will send your application to a credit reference agency to conduct a credit check. Please note that applications for high cost short term credit may have adverse effects on your credit score and this can limit your access to other forms of credit in the future. By submitting this application you are accepting that a record of your application may be recorded and kept on your credit file.
The lenders we work with are also likely to conduct a fraud check with a fraud prevention agency and an identity verification check. In submitting your application you consent to the lenders we work with sending your details to third parties agencies to conduct the necessary checks.
If you are successful in your application for credit, you will receive an email from the lender with a provisional offer that you are not obligated to accept. We recommend that you read the credit agreement and accompanying documentation fully before signing the credit agreement.
While we do not charge you for making an application for credit through any of our websites, we do receive a commission from the lenders directly if your application for credit is successful. The commission we receive from each lender may vary.
While we do not provide you with credit directly ourselves, we may conduct a soft credit check or identity verification check to enable us consider if the product you are applying for is suitable for your needs. If we consider the product is unsuitable for your needs we may introduce you to providers of alternative products that we consider may be more suitable to your needs. Please note that this does not constitute financial advice and if you are in need of financial advice you should contact an Independent Financial Adviser.
The information you provide must always be true and accurate, as misleading information will be regarded as a breach of our terms and is likely to breach any agreement the client has entered into with the lenders and financiers we work alongside. Furthermore, misleading information may also result in the instigation of criminal procedures against the client.
By entering into an agreement with us you are accepting our terms and conditions relating to the agreement and also are agreeing to abide by them and be bound by them.
We acknowledge our obligations to this agreement by performing the service you have requested. In doing so we are the service provider and you are our client.
We deal directly with the client and have no obligation to any party other than our client. If you are accessing our service on behalf of a third party our obligation is still with you, the client. And as our client the terms and conditions of this agreement apply to you, the client and no other parties or agents connected to you. If you wish for a third party to represent you in your correspondence or dealings with us, we will require proof of your authorisation to represent you from the third party. This is so that we can ensure we are not disclosing your details to a party you have not authorised.

Service Limits
If the client has authorised any third parties to access the service on behalf of the client instructions issued by authorised third parties will be contractually binding on the client on whose behalf the third party is acting.
Should the client choose to make a joint application for a loan or finance via our site each party will be dealt with as a client acting with the consent of the other and if correspondence is entered into with one party of the joint application it shall be assumed that the communication is with both parties.
Once a client enters into an agreement with us and accepts our terms and conditions, we act as the client’s broker for a period of 6 months. This period allows us the chance to try and find a loan or offer of finance required by the client.
To find out more information about how the Credit Act protects the rights of consumers contact the Trading Standards Institute or the Citizen’s Advice Bureau.
We do not provide loans or finance therefore we do not set or exert any influence over the rates of interest charged for financial products. Interest rates are set by the lenders and financiers who will also make the decision as to the provision of loans of finance to our clients.
The costs and rates included on our website are included by way of example and should not be read as indicative of the rate or cost of the loan you may obtain from a lender we work with. It will be the client’s responsibility to check any of the terms of any loan Agreement the client may agree with a lender.
The decision to provide clients with loans or offers of finance lies with the lenders and financiers alone and will depend on many things including a lender’s assessment of a client’s credit history, and an affordability assessment based on the information provided by you in the Application Form.
