Get the Best Rates on Loans for Fair Credit

To be able to get the best rates when applying through us for loans for fair credit, you will need to ensure you have assessed your current financial position. Although we can offer you the best rates, normally the very best deals are reserved for people with good to excellent credit. Even if you have the affordability, if you have bad credit this will affect not only how much you can borrow, but also the amount of interest you will pay. If you have bad credit, the rates of interest will be higher due to the lender taking a bigger risk to lend to you. You will need to consider whether the amounts of interest being offered on a loan works for you and if you can afford to make the repayments without struggling.

If you find that your affordability is low after comparing your income against your expenditure, then you may need to adjust how much you want to borrow. You can use our loan calculator to see how much the repayments would be including the interest charge, but remember, this can vary depending on the lender. Additionally, where we do offer loans for higher amounts, if you have bad credit, you may only be able to apply for up to £7,500.

Loans for Fair Credit FAQs

Do I Need a Credit Check to Apply for Loans for Fair Credit?

Yes, as per FCA guidelines, we will need to perform a credit check as part of your loan application. You won’t need a credit check to see your personalised table of offers, but once you do choose to apply with a lender, a credit check will be carried out. If you find any lenders willing to lend to you without a credit check you should report them to the FCA and not use them. A search of your credit file is designed to help protect you as much as the lender. Without having one, you could borrow too much and negatively impact your finances or struggle to maintain the repayments. Also, a lender would be taking a much larger risk with you without checking your credit score.

What is the Interest Charge on Loans for Fair Credit?

At Personal Loans Now, we charge a fixed rate of interest at 39.7% RAPR (representative annual percentage rate). This means that your interest charge will remain the same throughout the loan term. Some lenders may charge up to 99.9% and offer not just a fixed rate of interest, but also a variable-rate one. With a variable rate, the interest amount can increase as well as decrease during the loan term. This is similar to how interest works on a credit card and it can mean it is much more difficult to manage or budget for regular payments. With a fixed rate, you can see how much interest you need to pay in total upfront and what your monthly repayments will be.

Can I Apply for Loans for Fair Credit Whilst in Financial Difficulty?

We can’t stop you from applying for a loan through us, however, if you are in financial difficulty, we may not be able to help. As responsible lenders, we cannot lend to someone in financial difficulties as it will mean you could overextend yourself with further borrowing. You will need to carefully think about whether applying for more funding is the right thing to do in your situation. We recommend that if you are in financial difficulties that you look at long term solutions and speak to one of the free organisations, such as the Money Advice Service or Citizens Advice, who can offer impartial financial advice to help.

Can I Get Loans for Fair Credit without a Guarantor?

You do not need to have a guarantor to be approved for loans for fair credit, however, some lenders may require you to have one. If you currently have a poor credit rating, a guarantor loan may be a great option for you. Having a guarantor will mean somebody will co-sign your agreement to help increase the chances of being approved and provide the lender with a bigger guarantee against the loan. If you have fair to good credit and the affordability to make repayments, you may not need a guarantor.

How Can I Check My Credit Score?

We recommend that you check your credit score before applying for borrowing, especially if you don’t know what it currently is. You can check your current credit rating by using a credit reference agency, such as Experian or Equifax. You will be able to see not only your current score but also see exactly what a lender will see when searching your credit file. This way, if you have fair to bad credit, you will be able to see what areas you would need to make improvements to so that you can increase the chances of being approved. Improving your credit score can take time, but if you currently have no credit history, by starting to apply for credit you may see a quick change. However, you should try to avoid applying for multiple loans as this can have a negative impact on your credit.
