Emergency Loans FAQs

Do I Need a Guarantor for Emergency Cash Loans?

You do not need to have a guarantor as part of your application for quick emergency loans, however, some lenders may only be able to offer you the loan you want with this. A guarantor loan will ensure that if you have a poor credit rating, your chances of being approved for the loan you want are improved by having someone co-sign the loan agreement. A guarantor would need to be someone who has a good credit score, as well as other conditions, to help increase the chances of being approved. Whilst having a guarantor cannot guarantee the loan you want will be approved, it will provide a lender with more proof of affordability and present 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 will need to contact the lender at the earliest opportunity. A lender may be able to come to an agreement for the repayment of any arrears within a suitable timeframe. However, if you do miss repayments, you risk the lender taking legal action to recover any arrears. This can in some circumstances result in court action where the arrears, or possibly the 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 if you think you will miss any repayments. You should ensure before you agree to a new loan that you can definitely afford the repayments you have requested to avoid any potential missed repayments.

Can I Get Emergency Loans with No Credit Check?

As a responsible lender, we cannot offer emergency loans to someone without a credit check. If you find any lenders who say they do not need to conduct a credit search, then we strongly recommend you do not use them and report them to the FCA. A search of your credit file is designed to help protect you as well as the lender, ensuring the risk is as low as possible when lending to you. If you are not sure what your current credit score is, we recommend that you contact a credit reference agency such as Experian, who can show you your score and information that a lender considers during the application.

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

If you are currently experiencing financial difficulties, we recommend that you carefully consider your current situation before applying for further borrowing. As responsible lenders, we cannot lend to someone in financial difficulty as further borrowing can sometimes cause further issues. There are many free organisations you can speak to for help, including 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, and 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 £15,000 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, our personal loans can provide up to £25,000 unsecured borrowing. With higher amounts of borrowing, you will be liable to higher amounts of interest or higher monthly repayments, so you will need to ensure you are happy with the full terms being offered to you before agreeing to the loan.
