How does a guarantor loan work?

Typically, the best value borrowing for tenants with a poor credit rating 👍

  • Lenders don’t look so much at the status of the applicant but the person backing their application (see criteria for more details)
  • It’s not a problem if the applicant doesn’t own their own home and has poor credit.
  • These are the people this type of loan was designed for.
  • The applicant needs to find a loan backer, someone with a good credit history to support their application, usually a family member or friend.
  • The main criteria for the loan backer is to have a clean credit file and a regular income; they don’t have to be a homeowner – see more info here.

Why’re loans more expensive for non-homeowners?

Lenders look at stats when deciding on their interest rates 📉

  • UK stats say that defaults are higher for tenants compared to homeowners.
  • Not a reflection on you or your backer, but unfortunately lender underwriting criteria.
  • However good rates still available from 47.8% APR.

1

What will the loan cost?

Estimate your loan repayments with our loan calculator, but to get an accurate quote and to find out exact loan repayments

  • Submit your details to the lenders via our loan apply form
  • No cost, obligation, or impact on your credit file at this stage.
2

Will I get credit checked?

Your credit score will not be impacted by only getting quotes 😀

  • We do a soft search on your credit file which crucially does not leave a mark for other companies to see, which does not impact your credit score or impact any future credit applications.
  • If you decide to take out a loan, then both you and your guarantor will be subject to a hard credit check, but only after you have made a formal loan application with the lender. Too many hard credit checks over a short period of time can affect your credit score for six months, reducing your ability to get approved for credit in the future.

Can getting a loan improve my credit score?

YES 😀

  • By successfully making all your loan repayments without default, and
  • Repaying the credit in full

This is one of the things you can do to rebuild your credit score
