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 with Proper Finance since we work with a range of lenders across the UK. 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 to leverage something value you own. 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. However, it is important to understand that you could lose your collateral if you fail to make repayments.

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?

Repayments are made automatically through your bank account in a way that is similar to a direct debit. You agree the exact date with the lender that you would like repayment to be taken and you will be sent reminders on the days leading up to each repayment.

You have the option to borrow £5,000 over 3,6,12,24,48 or 60 months, repaid in equal monthly instalments and the option to repay early.

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.
