No Guarantor Loans for Less
These days, there are more ways than ever to get money when you need it. This is great news as it means that even if you have bad a credit rating you can normally find a loan. It also means that you can find a loan to suit your specific circumstances and to minimize the costs. And thanks to the web, you can normally apply for the loan and have the money deposited into your account all within a matter of minutes!
Guarantor loans are one such product that are designed to make life easier for people with bad credit. These loans involve choosing a nominee who will agree to make your repayments if you should default. That means that you no longer have to ‘prove yourself’ to the bank – as long as your friend or relatively believes you can make the payments, you can get the money. Better yet, it means there are no astronomical late payment fees and you can simply arrange a schedule to repay your friend that works for you both.
But if you don’t have a guarantor then of course this won’t be an option for you. Many people will feel uncomfortable asking for that commitment from a friend and others might not have a friend or relative in the right financial position (normally they will need to be a homeowner with a certain salary and good credit score).
So what if you need no guarantor loans? Are you out of luck?
Alternatives to Guarantors
Guarantors are great options for those who have them but if you don’t know anyone who can act in that capacity then you’re going to need to find another solution.
Thankfully, there are quite a few different choices available.
One such choice, is to use a secure loan. This is a loan that will use some form of collateral as a guarantee for the lender. Often that will mean your property but a great alternative is a title loan, or a logbook loan.
These loans involve transferring ownership of a vehicle over to the lender. You can still drive your car but for all other intents and purposes it is not yours until you’ve paid off the loan. As long as the amount you need to borrow is less than the value of your car, this is a great option for landing a low APR – and it doesn’t have to involve risking your property!
Another option is a payday loan. These loans are ideal in scenarios where you need a quick cash injection but you’re able to pay it back over a shorter period. If you need to borrow a £1K for a few weeks for example, then this option is viable.
That’s because a payday loan has a high APR but lets you pay off the entire amount in one simple installment. That way, you know the exact fee you’re paying and over a short time period, this won’t be all that much. A similar option is an installment loan, which is a slightly ‘stretched out’ version over a couple of separate payments.
