Personal Loans

Personal Loan or Payday Loan?

Personal loans are unsecured loans most commonly provided by traditional lenders such as a high street bank. In most circumstances, though not necessarily, a consumer will apply for a personal loan through the bank that they have their current account with. Personal loans are for a fixed amount repayable over a fixed period of time and usually at a fixed interest rate.

Personal loans normally have a minimum value of £1000 and a repayment period of at least a year. Often, though not always, the borrower will be charged in the case of early repayment as this impacts on the profit that the lender makes from providing the loan. Lenders will conduct a credit check on borrowers who must have a reasonable credit rating in order to be approved for a personal loan. Application to approval and receiving the funds will generally take at least a couple of weeks. Personal loans will generally be taken out to cover a significant financial outlay such as home improvements, debt consolidation or education such as college or university fees.

Payday loans are an alternative to a personal loan when the borrower requires a smaller sum of money over a shorter period of time. Most payday loan products will have a maximum value of £2000 and be repayable over weeks or months rather than years. The application and approval process is also much quicker than is the case with personal loans with funds usually received within a day. Payday loans are designed to cover short term cash needs such as unexpected expenses or a one-off accumulation of expenses over a short timeframe.

When is a Payday Loan Suitable?

  • When a loan of up to a maximum of £2000 is required.
  • When funds are required quickly, within a few days.
  • When the borrower wishes to repay the loan in less than a year.
  • When other forms of credit available via registered and regulated lenders ie. an overdraft or credit card are not obtainable or suitable.
  • When the borrower is confident they can comfortably meet repayments as scheduled.
  • When taking the loan is not for an expense that can wait.

When is a Personal Loan Suitable?

  • When a loan of more than £1000 is required.
  • When the cash does not need to be available for at least a couple of weeks.
  • When the borrower wishes to repay the loan over at least a year.
  • When the borrower is confident they can comfortably meet repayments as scheduled.

Who Can Apply for a Payday Loan and is a Poor Credit Score an Obstable?

Almost anyone over the age of 18 who is a permanent resident of the UK and has a bank account. A poor credit score is not necessarily an obstacle as long as your regular income is sufficient to comfortably afford repayments.
