Guarantor Loans Explained
What is a Guarantor Loan?
A guarantor loan is a loan which is guaranteed by someone else normally a friend or family member. The person who is acting guarantor will be responsible for the loan if you fail on the repayments so its important for both parties to know what is expected.You can usually borrow between £1000 - £15000 with a guarantor loan depending on your circumstances and also your guarantors circumstances. This will reduce the risk for the lender meaning you are more likely to be successful with a guarantor loan.
Who is a Guarantor Loan for?
A guarantor loan is a solution for people with either adverse credit that are unable to take out a loan or it may be the case that you haven't yet begin to build a credit history. This can also make it difficult to be approved for finance.
A guarantor loan enables you to borrow money which can usually be for any purpose and the lender will only contact your guarantor as a last result if you fail to keep up the repayments of the loan and can not be contacted. Even if the high street banks and other lenders have said no you can still borrow money by using a guarantor loan. The good thing is most of our lenders look at each individual application rather than relying on a computer to make a decision.
The Guarantor Loan Process
