Advantages and disadvantages of a personal loan

Before you take out a personal loan, it’s important to do your research. Borrowing money can give you access to the money you need to pay off debts or make a big purchase, but it means you need to be confident you can make repayments towards the loan on a monthly basis.



If you’ve done your homework and have decided to apply for a loan, the next step is to choose between a secured and an unsecured loan. A secured loan is tied to an asset you own, such as your house or car, while an unsecured loan is not. Which type of loan is better for you will depend on your personal circumstances.

Visit our secured and unsecured loans pages to find out more about the benefits and potential risks of both types of borrowing.

What interest rates are available?

The interest rate you’ll be offered on a loan may vary depending on certain factors. These include your financial history and current circumstances, plus the type of product you’re applying for. Our interest rates start from 3.37%.

A better credit score may reduce the rate you’re offered, and get you a better deal overall. Each loan repayment plan is calculated on a case-by-case basis.

Repayment amounts are determined by the annual percentage rate (APR). APR is what lenders charge for a loan, including the interest rate plus other fees. To find out more about APR and what goes into calculating the rate, take a look at our guide to APR.

How much can I borrow?

How much you can borrow depends on your personal situation. We provide secured and unsecured loans starting from £3,000, with the maximum being £500,000.

The large variety of lenders we work with provides flexibility to find borrowing that suits you, with repayment terms available from one year to 30 years (maximum 10 years for unsecured loans).

Commonly asked questions about loans

We’ve answered your most commonly asked questions about our loans. To find out more, call one of our friendly and helpful advisors on 0800 694 5566.

How can I check my credit score?

To check your credit score, head to the website of one of the three credit reporting agencies. These are:

Here you’ll be able to run a credit report, which generates your credit score. You can check your credit score for free.

Will searching for a loan affect my credit score?

No, a soft search is usually performed by lenders whilst people are shopping around and this will not affect your credit score. It is only when a loan is taken out that a hard credit check will be added to your credit history. Read our guide to the different kinds of credit search.

Can I apply for a loan with bad credit?

Yes, you can apply for a loan with bad credit or a CCJ. There are lenders who will work with you on a repayment package that covers both your existing debt and the amount of money you want to borrow.

How long does it take to be approved for a loan?

You will usually receive an instant decision from us on whether or not your application has been successful. We recommend leaving one to two weeks for your application to be processed before receiving the funds.

Can I pay off a loan early?

A loan can be paid off at any time, but many lenders charge a small early repayment fee for doing so. This would still save you a substantial amount on the total interest that would have accrued if the loan were allowed to run to its agreed term. It is essential that you can afford your repayments for the full term from the outset.

Can I take a break from paying back my loan?

You can discuss taking a break from paying back your debt consolidation loan. This is known as a ‘payment holiday’. Before doing so, it’s important to remember this can change your financial situation and affect your credit rating. Discuss the terms and conditions of taking a payment break with your lender before agreeing.

How long are the repayment terms?

Our repayment terms are flexible and work around your needs. Choose a period that suits your financial situation best, from one to 30 years, to make sure you’re comfortable with the repayments.

What are the interest rates?

The interest rates may vary, based on your individual situation and financial history. Our homeowner interest rates start at 3.37%.

Are there any loan fees?

We do not charge fees on unsecured loans. As a broker, we may charge a broker fee of up to 12.5% on a secured loan. Because we’re not a bank, we receive commission from the lender once the loan application has completed.

Am I eligible for a loan?

We help customers from every walk of life take control of their finances. Our products are available for:

No matter what your circumstances, even if you have CCJs, we may be able to help find you the ideal loan product.
