Everything about our unsecured loans:

What is an Unsecured Loan?

An unsecured loan is where you borrow money without giving any security on the money you borrow. This means that if you can’t repay the loan your house and car is not at risk. However, if you don’t repay, the lender does have legal rights to take back their money. They may sell your debt to a collections company. In a worst case scenario, they could take you to court. Therefore, despite unsecured loans being lower risk than secured loans, it’s important to consider whether you can repay the loan.

No Guarantor Loans

A guarantor is someone who promises a lender that a loan will be paid. In many cases, a guarantor signs a contract that states that if the borrower can’t repay the loan, the guarantor will take over the monthly payments. This is one way of securing a loan.

On the other hand, unsecured loans are loans that are given without a guarantor. With PLNOW’s no guarantor loans in the UK there is no need to find someone to back you when applying for your loan. Why hassle your family and friends when you can apply for the money you need without looking for a guarantor?

However, we do provide unsecured loans without you needing a guarantor.
