Q: Are unsecured loans with no guarantor expensive?

No guarantor loans are usually more expensive because a lender will set the interest rate based on the level of risk they feel they are undertaking. The greater the risk, the higher the interest rate. Because unsecured loans with no guarantor do not offer the lender any security, these loans are by nature high risk. Therefore, they are usually more costly than secured loans, such as a secured homeowner loan or a car loan. For this reason, lenders are also often unwilling to lend larger amounts of money. So, unsecured loans are usually for smaller sums than secured loans.

Q: What would happen if I don’t repay my unsecured loan?

All lenders have their own policies. For example, one may charge you immediately upon missing a repayment. Another may give you a grace period before adding charges. In general, the loan will be passed on to the collection department. Interests and charges may be added to the loan, so it’s a good idea to pay back as much as you can, as soon as you can. If the loan is still not repaid, the unsecured debt may be sold on to a debt collector. In the worst case scenario, the borrower may be taken to court (a CCJ). Missing a payment for an unsecured loan from direct lenders will almost always have a negative impact on your credit score. Having bad credit makes it more challenging to find loans.
