    • The borrower and guarantor both sign the credit agreement.
    • If the borrower defaults, the guarantor may have to make the loan repayments.

    How to find a guarantor?

    It’s best to first ask close family and friends with a strong credit history, people who know and trust you 🧑🏽‍🤝‍🧑🏽

    Before you do, it’s worth doing a little bit of preparation, to give them the information they may ask for:

    • Why you need the money  –  a good reason why you need the amount you need and what it is for
    • You can afford the monthly repayments  –  the biggest concern they will have is the monthly repayments, that they are not stuck paying these. So, you will need to show them that you can comfortably afford the monthly repayments.
    • Full details about being a guarantor  –  this can be found on our detailed page Being A Guarantor Guide

    For more information see: How do you find the perfect guarantor?

    How quickly is the money paid out?

    The application process is fast, and within twenty-four hours is possible ⏱️

    There is no guarantee that will happen and typical time delays are:

    • Time for the borrower to fully complete their application, and provide required information to the lender.
    • Time for the borrower to find a guarantor.
    • Time for the guarantor to fully complete their application, and provide required information to the lender.

    Once all this is done, it’s possible to get loan funds paid out within twenty-four hours of receiving a fully completed application

    Am I guaranteed to get accepted?

    No, approval cannot be guaranteed 🤞🏼

    Though 9 out of 10 of our lender applicants get accepted.

    • Every lender has its own criteria , and whether they decide to lend to you will depend on your personal situation the status of you, and your loan guarantor.
    • If you and your guarantor meet the lender's criteria , then this will greatly increase your chances.

    Warning: avoid anyone claiming that they guarantee you will be approved, as this is strictly forbidden by the FCA.

    • Your guarantor's credit file, their financial situation, and income
