Emergency Loans FAQs

Do I Need a Guarantor for Emergency Cash Loans?

You don’t need to have a guarantor as part of your application for quick emergency loans. However, some lenders may only be able to offer the loan you want with this. A guarantor loan will ensure if you have poor credit, your chances are improved by having someone co-sign the loan. A guarantor would need to be someone who has a good credit score as well as other conditions. This will help increase the chances of being approved. Having a guarantor cannot guarantee the loan you want will be approved, but it will provide a lower risk. If you have a good credit score, you can apply for emergency loans without a guarantor.

What Happens if I Miss Repayments on Emergency Loans?

If you expect to miss a repayment as set out in your credit agreement, then you’ll need to contact the lender. They may be able to come to an agreement for repayment of any arrears within a suitable time frame. However, if you do miss repayments, you risk the lender taking legal action to recover any arrears. This can result in court action where the arrears, or possible full loan amount, can be requested to be paid in full. The unexpected can happen to anyone, which is why it’s best to contact the lender ASAP. Especially if you think you’ll miss any repayments. You should ensure before applying that you can afford repayments to avoid any potential missed repayments.

Can I Get Emergency Loans with No Credit Check?

As a responsible credit broker, we don’t have access to lenders that offer emergency loans to someone without a credit check. If you find any lenders who do not need to conduct a credit search, then we strongly recommend you do not use them. You should also report them to the FCA. A search of your credit file is designed to help protect you as well as the lender. This ensures the risk is as low as possible when lending to you. If you’re not sure what your current credit score is, we recommend contacting a credit reference agency. Experian, for example, can show your score and information a lender considers during the application.

I’m in Financial Difficulty, Can I Still Apply for Emergency Loans?

If you’re in financial difficulty, we recommend you consider your current finances before applying. As responsible broker, our lenders cannot lend to someone in financial difficulty. This is because further borrowing can sometimes cause further issues. There are many free organisations you can speak to for help. This includes the Money Advice Service or Citizens Advice, who offer free, impartial financial advice. Emergency loans are designed to be used for short term financial issues, to resolve an unexpected bill. They shouldn’t be used for long term financial issues or to pay for other borrowing you may already have.

What’s the Maximum Amount I Can Borrow with Emergency Loans?

Depending on your current credit score, you can borrow up to £20,000 with emergency loans. If you have bad credit, this may be limited to a maximum of £7,500 due to the bigger risk to a lender. If you want to borrow higher amounts, we can provide up to £20,000 unsecured borrowing. With higher loan amounts, you’ll be liable for higher amounts of interest or higher monthly repayments. You’ll need to ensure you’re happy with the full terms being offered to you before agreeing to the loan. You can also apply for secured loans from £10,000 upwards to £250,000 if you need it.
