Our service

lightfinance.co.uk is owned and operated by TFLI Limited

We are not a Lender or Provider and therefore we will not provide finance directly to you; we provide an online loan matching service, we will introduce you to Lenders or Providers of financial services. By submitting an application through our Iframe form you will be giving your consent for TFLI Limited to match your application with one of the Lenders or Providers on our panel. We will present your application in real time to one or more of our Lenders or Providers based on their lending criteria until such time as one of our Lenders or Providers accepts your application or all Lenders and Providers decline your application. If a Lender or Provider accepts your application you will be forwarded to a page on the Lender or Provider's Website that they have requested we direct you to or if the Lender or Provider does not work online we may present you with a screen that gives you information and contact details relating to the Lender or Provider that accepts You

It is important to understand that we will only forward you to a Lender or Provider that has looked at your application and accepted it as one they believe there is a good chance they can provide a loan or relevant services to you. It is also important to understand that we may be paid a fee by the Lender or Provider for introducing you to them and we may pay a portion of that fee to the Website owner that is using the iframe form as a service.

If we are unable to find the exact amount and/or term that you have requested, our lenders may offer you an alternative amount and/or term. There is no obligation to accept the alternative offer if it doesn't meet your needs. You should read their conditions carefully and make a responsible decision on whether you believe their service is right for you. If you have any questions or are unsure you should contact the Lender or Provider before taking out any service or loan with them. There is no obligation for you to take up the loan or service with them.

Any examples of amounts available to borrow, terms (repayment periods) or rates stated on the Lender or Provider Websites are purely given as a representative example relating to the product. These representative examples are stated to give you an understanding of the products available. Representative examples are not given as a figure of what you will actually be offered by the Lender/Finance Provider therefore cannot be given as a guarantee nor can they be used as any kind of warranty. As we do not provide the loan or financial service directly to you we are unable to control the representative rate examples contained on the Website. Please also be aware that the decision to offer any loan or financial service is made by the Lender or Finance Provider and we have no control over the decision making.

The Lender/Finance Provider will conduct an assessment on you before any decision or offer is made; this may include a full assessment of your credit history both past and present.
