You need to get a guarantor: someone with clean credit history and regular income to guarantee your loan


Who can be a guarantor? The ideal person is a family member (including spouse), close friend, or colleague who:

  • Age – is from 18 to 80
  • Residential status – is a tenant, living with parents or homeowner
  • Credit Rating – good to marginally imperfect
  • Income – regular income required (pension acceptable)
  • Affordability – needs to be able to make the loan repayment if you were unable to

Top Questions

A type of loan that requires the borrower to find someone to guarantee their application 🧑‍🤝‍🧑

  • Typically, a family member or friend (with a good credit rating and regular income).
  • The borrower and guarantor both sign the credit agreement.
  • If the borrower defaults, the guarantor may have to make the loan repayments.

This helps people with a bad credit rating gain access to affordable finance.

People with a damaged credit history who may struggle to get a personal loan from their bank, but still looking for:

  1. More affordable finance – around 49.9% APR versus 500%+ for other types of adverse credit loan.
  2. A larger amount – from £1,000 up to £10,000 vs a max of £2,000 for other types of loan.
  3. To repair their credit score, by taking out a loan and paying it back.

It’s best to first ask close family and friends with a strong credit history, people who know and trust you 🧑🏽‍🤝‍🧑🏽

Before you do, it’s worth doing a little bit of preparation, to give them the information they may ask for:

  • Why you need the money – a good reason why you need the amount you need and what it is for
  • You can afford the monthly repayments – the biggest concern they will have is the monthly repayments, that they are not stuck paying these. So, you will need to show them that you can comfortably afford the monthly repayments.
  • Full details about being a guarantor – this can be found on our detailed page Being A Guarantor Guide

For more information see: How do you find the perfect guarantor?

The application process is fast, and within twenty-four hours is sometimes possible ⏱️

There is no guarantee that will happen and typical time delays are:

  • Time for the borrower to fully complete their application, and provide the required information to the lender.
  • Time for the borrower to find a guarantor.
  • Time for the guarantor to fully complete their application, and provide the required information to the lender.

Once all this is done, it’s possible to get loan funds paid out within twenty-four hours of receiving a fully completed application

No, approval cannot be guaranteed 🤞🏼

Though a high proportion of our lender applicants get accepted.

  • Every lender has its own criteria, and whether they decide to lend to you will depend on your personal situation and the status of you, and your loan guarantor.
  • If you and your guarantor meet the lender’s criteria, then this will greatly increase your chances.

Warning: avoid anyone claiming that they guarantee you will be approved, as this is strictly forbidden by the FCA.

  • When you make a full application and enter your personal details to a lender you will be credit checked, but if you have a poor credit rating that is typically not a problem.

Our lenders also consider

  • Your guarantor’s credit file, their financial situation, and income
  • Affordability for the monthly repayment for you and your guarantor

Once you are making your monthly loan repayments, these will be recorded on your credit file which will start building up your credit score.

Guarantor start from £1,000 and go up to £10,000 👍

  • So, if you’re after a £1,000, £2,000, £3,000, £5,000, or £10,000 loan, we’ve got you covered.

Our lenders understand the many reasons why you may need additional funds

Amongst many other things, a concern for the lenders is that you and your guarantor, can comfortably afford the loan payments.

So, they will do an affordability assessment, contact the credit reference agencies, and ensure you have a suitable guarantor.
