Paragon Car Finance FAQ
Who are Paragon?
Paragon Bank is a specialist lender founded in 1985. They launched their motor finance products in 2014, catering for personal cars, light commercial vehicles, caravans, and motorhomes. Paragon is based in Solihull in the West Midlands, and aims to offer finance solutions to help drivers get a deal that best meets their requirements.
What car finance is available from Paragon?
Paragon offers car finance products, including Hire Purchase and Lease Purchase.
With both these options, you would essentially be hiring the vehicle as you would not be the owner of it. If you have a Hire Purchase agreement, you will only own the vehicle after all payments have been made (including the option to purchase fee), and with a Lease Purchase you will only own the vehicle if you make the balloon payment at the end of the term.
Paragon can refinance the balloon payments.
How much car finance can I borrow from Paragon?
Loan amounts from Paragon vary considerably, with smaller loans more suitable for cheaper cars available, well as much larger sums. The amount you receive, and the term of the loan, will depend on the car you plan to purchase as well as your financial profile. A deposit may be required in some cases, but not always.
Who is eligible for Paragon car finance?
Individuals aged between 21 and 80 can apply for Paragon car finance.
To be eligible for finance from Paragon, cars should not exceed Paragon’s maximum mileage limit or their age limit. The limits may vary between Hire Purchase and Lease Purchase agreements.
Paragon will only finance cars that are from reputable dealers, who will need to be approved by the FCA.
