    Bank of Scotland loan review 12th May 17 at 3:23 PM
    Just applied for a bank of Scotland loan.
    car on pop at £254, 2 credit cards active with no outstanding balance and a mortgage payment of £210 a month. I have around £700 disposable income a month.

    I bank with bank of Scotland however not all my income is paid into that account. Loan repayments were stated at £300 pcm so still affordable. Went through everything and said it was sent for review and I'd know by 6.55pm (strange time I know). Does anyone know why this would be? I'm used to immediate decisions for things these days.

    It's a referral. It happens from time to time.

    Do you know any reason why it would be referred? I always get nervous with these things. Checked all 3 CRAs before applying and everything as it should be and fit their eligibility.

    Could be anything. ID check, employer check, pulled for internal audit. Could be a backlog caused by a system issue.

    Nothing you can do about it, so just wait and see.
