How do unsecured loans work?

Once you apply online, we will perform a soft credit check to see if you are eligible for a loan with us, a soft search won’t be visible to other lenders if you are unsuccessful with your application.

What are the benefits of an unsecured loan compared to a secured loan?

An unsecured personal loan has one core advantage compared to a secured loan:

  • Your home isn’t part of the loan arrangement. You're not risking your home, as you're not borrowing against its value. Therefore, if you cannot repay, you won't face any risks of losing your property.

  • However, there are drawbacks to consider when taking any type of loan:

  • If you miss payments and fall into financial difficulties, it will have a negative impact on your credit file and score. This may affect your ability to borrow money in the future.
  • I have a bad credit score, can I still get a £5,000 loan?

    If you have a bad credit score, this doesn’t necessarily mean you won’t be able to get a loan. We specialise in helping individuals with less-than-ideal credit scores. We have a strong track record of providing loans to people throughout the UK who have encountered credit difficulties in the past.

    If you're considering applying for a loan with us and have more questions, please contact your local branch where one of our friendly lending team will be more than happy to assist.

    Are unsecured loans safer than secured loans?

    Unsecured loans do not require you to provide collateral, such as your home or car. This means that your assets are not directly in jeopardy if you face repayment difficulties.

    However, it's important to bear in mind that not repaying any loan, including unsecured loans, can have a negative impact on your credit history and potentially affect your future credit eligibility. We advise you to carefully assess your financial situation before taking out any loan.

    What can I use my loan for?

    At Everyday Loans, we give you the freedom to use your loans for various things, but there are a few important rules:

  • Our loans are meant for personal use only, so you can't use them for business purposes since we're not a business lender.
  • You're not allowed to use the loan for gambling; our terms don't allow it.
  • Lastly, it's crucial to know that our loans must never be used for anything illegal.

  • To ensure responsible lending, we'll ask you about your loan's intended use during the application process. This is to make sure that any loan we offer is suitable, appropriate, and aligns with responsible lending standards. Feel free to apply today to see if you qualify.

    FAQs about unsecured personal loans

    In this section, we answer the questions people ask us the most about our loans and how lending works in general. Our goal is to provide you with all the information you need so that you can feel confident and well-informed about your financial choices.

    If you have any questions that we haven't covered here, please feel free to get in touch with us. We're here to help you in any way we can.

    • Will an unsecured personal loan affect my credit rating? More

      The short answer is that it could, but it's hard to predict the exact impact on your credit score. Missing payments or paying late on a personal loan can have a negative effect on your credit rating.

      On the flip side, making regular on-time payments and sticking to the loan terms might potentially improve your credit score. Keep in mind that your credit score is influenced by various factors, so the impact of getting a loan isn't guaranteed.

    • Can I pay back my loan early More

      Yes, you can. If you would like to pay back your loan earlier than the initial term, you can contact your branch to request a settlement figure.

    • Can I apply for a loan with another person? More

      Absolutely. We have an option known as a joint loan or couples loans. This means you can apply for a loan together with another person. In such cases, we consider both applicants' incomes and their combined credit histories when making lending decisions.
