What Is the Criteria to Borrow £5,000?

The criteria of borrowing a £5,000 loan will depend entirely on the type of loan you wish to take out. For example, if applying for guarantor loans, you will typically require a guarantor with a good credit score, however this is not usually required of the main borrower.

Whilst criteria may vary, some of the main requirements most applicants will have to have in order to be eligible include the following:

  • You must be over 18 years old
  • You must be a UK resident
  • You must have a working debit account
  • You must have a working phone number and email address

Other conditions will apply, dependant on both the lender and the loan type. It’s therefore important to understand all of the terms and conditions for your loan before applying.


Could I Apply for a £5,000 Loan If I Have Bad Credit?

If you have bad credit you could still be eligible to apply for a loan. Proper Finance works with a range of lenders across the country who have a wide variety of different specialisms. As such, there are many different options available, even if you have poor credit.

For those with bad credit, a secured loan may be a better option and you are more likely to be approved. Securing your loan means putting up a form of collateral which acts as a guarantee of your loan repayment. This could be your car, your property or another item of value. Putting up collateral makes the loan less risky for the lender and consequently means they are more likely to approve your loan.

Additionally, bad credit can mean that you are subject to higher interest rates making your loan more expensive to pay back in the long run. If you are concerned about your credit score, it might be worth pursuing other options before taking out a loan or looking into ways to positively build your credit before making an application.


How Can I Repay My Loan?

Proper Finance will match you to a lender who understands your financial needs and can offer you the most suitable loan. You will work together with your lender to agree on a repayment plan that works for both parties. Most typically, this is a repayment plan of equal monthly repayments over a fixed period of time. These payment instalments will include the principal amount of the loan (£5,000) and additional interest. You could also repay your loan earlier if you discuss this with your lender.
