How is a guarantor loan different to any other type of loan?
Guarantor loans are ideal if you have either a poor credit history, no credit history or if you have been refused a main stream non guarantor loan. With this type of loan you have a much greater chance of being approved for a loan. A guarantor provides the lender will less risk and therefore this makes them more willing to borrow to poor credit people.
How much can I borrow?
Each lender has their own lending limits, however you can generally borrow between £5,000 and £10,000 over 1 – 5 years. How much exactly you can borrow will depend on your application, credit profile, affordability, and your guarantor.
What type of guarantor do I need?
Your guarantor can be anyone who is willing to co-sign the agreement with you. They must be willing to take on the loan in the event that you were not able to repay it back. The most popular type of guarantor is usually a family member or a very close friend or trusts you.
