Loan Plans That Care Little for Your Credit Score

By: amenda dorothy

Earlier, a bad credit borrower was treated as risk for lenders and so there were chances of rejection of the loan application. In these days, due to growing competition amongst the lenders of the UK loan market, however, taking loans with a bad credit tag has become easier. Loan facility to poor credit borrowers are now being provided for home improvements, buying a new or used car, going to holiday tour, planning a wedding party, paying for child's tuition fees or for debt consolidation.

Bad credit means the concerned loan applicant has a bad credit track record of making late payments or he or she may have defaulted on payments earlier. Also, the applicant may have arrears in his or her name or have faced cases of county court judgments. Lenders first of all see how much of a risk is involved in lending money to the applicant. They see the credit report and credit score to assess risk factors.

If the credit score is too low then the applicant is risky for the lenders and he may be charged a higher rate of interest. Each lender has his own way of reducing risks in offering loan to bad credit borrowers. But, every lender will have a deep insight into borrower's ability to return loan in timely manner. Applicant's income status, employment and bank statement is carefully scrutinized before approving the loan.

The best way to offset bad credit factor is to pledge home or any asset of good value as security in availing loans. Secured bad credit loans are easier to take as lender has little risks and these loans can also be taken by the unemployed people. The other advantage is you get loans at competitive rate of interest. And the applicant can borrow greater amount for 5 to 25 years of repaying tenure.

Unsecured loans for bad credit people are risk free offers as lenders approve them without any security. But interest rate goes higher in such loan plans. The borrowers are approved smaller amount for 1 to 10 years.

The applicant should check his credit report for any error in it and know his credit score also before applying for a loan. The borrower should make sure that he pays off the loan installments in time so that your credit score improves. Always, prefer online lenders for a cost free processing and a loan at competitive rate.
