Why do Lenders of no check loans work this way?

Many lenders in the Uk are targeting asset backed finance to give themselves greater comfort and security in the current economic climate. This move away from unsecured lending is exemplified by the range of available property-backed secured loan and home improvement loans providers, and also the increasing number of niche products such as ones that enable a customer to raise money secured against personal valuables like cars, art and antiques or jewellery and gold. A bad credit loan falls into this category of niche loan products which requires a form of security in the form of someone to guarantee the loan in order to gain acceptance.

If you cannot get a loan from your bank it doesn't have to mean you can't get a loan. Other lenders will look to lend you money on the strength of your guarantor for example, known more commonly as a guarantor loan. These are also sometimes referred to as guaranteed loans buy no loan is guaranteed and usually subject to certain criteria being fulfilled.

What type of customer suits a Loan with No Full Check?

What about finding a Guarantor for my Bad Credit Loan?

Guarantors generally tend to be very close to the applicant IE someone related, a close friend or perhaps in some cases an employer or landlord. They also need to be in receipt of a regular income and a homeowner.

To prevent fraud the bad credit loan lender will send the proceeds of the loan to the guarantor to pass on to the applicant. This final stage in the process ensures that they are fully aware of their commitment and also verifies their relationship with the applicant.

The applicant has not been rigorously credit checked so the guarantor will need to meet fairly basic criteria to qualify, the key one being that they must be a homeowner. Home ownership is considered a key factor when assessing the credit worthiness of the guarantor and the application as a whole.

The guarantor on a loan must also have a stable credit history and steady income from employment or perhaps pensions.

The most common people to act as guarantors for our customers tend to be parents, family members, close friends or work friends. You may also consider an employers or even a landlord.

Put simply if they trust you then our lenders trust you and thus your personal credit rating is not so important when applying.

Anyone considering whether to be a loan guarantor should obtain a copy of the loan contract and should be sure to read and fully understand it before they sign it.
