Everyday Loans for everyday people
If you have been refused a loan due to bad credit or other financial issues, Everyday Loans may be able to help. We are specialists in lending to customers who have struggled to get loans, either through a bad credit score or simply having no or little credit history in the past.
Our lending process uses soft search technology when you initially apply for a loan with us, so it will not affect your credit history. This is a great benefit to our customers as some lenders use hard credit checks, which can leave a negative mark on your credit history. We only conduct a hard check when your application is fully approved.
To see if you could be conditionally approved, simply fill out our online application. If you are successful, we will schedule a face-to-face meeting at your local Everyday Loans branch.

Tailored Local Lending
Everyday Loans prides itself on quality customer service and friendly support staff. If you receive conditional approval for a loan with us, we will set up a meeting for you at our nearest location. During this meeting, we can look at more than just your credit history, we can review how you manage money, your financial obligations and your unique circumstances. This allows us to offer loans to a wider variety of customers than lenders that just rely on automated credit scoring.
In the meeting, we will determine if we can provide you with a final loan offer. If so, we will explain the specifics of the loan and fill out the paperwork.
Everyday Loans is a responsible lender. We work with all of our customers to provide an honest and fair service, as well as keeping all of our applicants' data secure. We schedule a face-to-face meeting with each customer to get to know their individual circumstances.
During this meeting, we can explain the loan agreement, along with its terms and conditions. We also use this opportunity to complete a full assessment of each person's financial situation. All of our customer data is stored securely and processed in line with UK GDPR and DPA regulations.
During the application and meeting, we ask that our clients provide the most accurate information possible. We have also prepared a glossary of terms to help explain some of the more complicated lending terminology like APR and credit score. However, our lending experts will walk clients through these topics during their loan meetings.
We ask all of our customers to please let us know if their financial situation changes. For example, if their income is interrupted and they are unable to make a loan payment on time. In cases like this, we can work together to provide you with appropriate support in managing your account.
Please feel free to contact us with any further questions. To start an application now, just click the apply button and fill out our simple form.
Why have I been refused a loan?
Lenders can turn you down for a loan for a handful of reasons. The most common are:
- Your credit score is too low. You can check your credit at a number of credit reference agencies to see what your score is. If it is particularly low, this could be the reason you were turned down.
- Negative marks on your credit history. If you have missed credit card or loan payments in the past, this could be causing some lenders to decline your application for a loan.
- You do not meet affordability checks. This means that a lender has looked at your finances and decided that you may not be able to pay back a loan.
- Signs of fraud on your credit report. If a lender thinks there are any signs of fraud, they will likely turn you down.
- Problems with confirming your identity or address. All lenders want to make sure they can confirm who you are and where you live.
- You do not meet a lender's minimum requirements. For example, If a lender requires all borrowers to be over 21 and you are 20.
If you have been refused a loan elsewhere, Everyday Loans may be able to help. We specialise in loans for people with less-than-perfect credit. Our loan terms are between 18 and 60 months, so we can make sure your monthly payments are affordable.
You can fill out our online application for a conditional decision, and we use soft search, so applying will not show up on your credit report.
What can I do if I am refused a loan?
If you have been refused a loan, check the information held about you with the three main credit reporting agencies. You can go to each agency and ask for a copy of your credit file.
You should look for any mistakes in this document. These could be problems with your address, old debts you have since cleared or suspicious activity. If there are mistakes, you can contact the credit reporting agency to get them corrected. This can make a big impact on your ability to get a loan. If you do spot a mistake, you may need to provide evidence to prove that the information is incorrect.
If you do not find any mistakes, you can at least see what your credit looks like and work to start improving it.
What other lending options do I have?
If you have been refused a loan by another lender, we may still be able to help you get a loan. Everyday Loans specialise in working with people who have bad credit or haven’t had many credit agreements before, so we may be able to accept people other lenders have refused.
To find out if you could be accepted for one of our loans, fill out our online application form. This will not affect your credit as we use soft search. Once you have submitted your application, we will send you a conditional decision.
How do I improve my chances of getting a loan?
The first step to improving your chances of getting a loan is to review your credit report. Make sure there are no mistakes, and if there are, contact the credit granting agency to get them fixed.
Then make sure you are on the electoral roll. This helps confirm your identity, which is very important for lenders.
Next, work on improving your credit score, which you can do by ensuring all of your payments are made on time. If you are struggling to manage your finances, you can seek free independent advice. More information can be found here.
Finally, avoid too many hard checks on your credit. If you are applying for lots of loans, each lender could be running a hard check on you which can damage your credit score. Instead, look for lenders that use soft search.
If you cannot wait for your credit to improve to get a loan, Everyday Loans may be able to help. We are experts in lending to people with bad credit. Fill out our application, and we will let you know if we can give you conditional approval.
FAQs for People Refused Loans
Being refused a loan can be confusing and might even make you angry. We understand that being turned down for financing can be a problem, so we wanted to answer a few of the most commonly asked questions about this topic. This should help you better understand some of the terminology around lending so you can understand what might have contributed to your loan request being denied.
A credit score is a number assigned to you by one of three credit reporting agencies. This number can go up or down depending on your financial decisions as well as the information the credit agencies have about you. You start out with no credit history because there is no historical data about how you use money. As you make purchases, take loans and manage your finances, these decisions will show up as changes to your score.
Everyday Loans as a business is built around helping people with bad credit get loans. We choose to accept a wider range of credit scores than many conventional lenders. This allows us to help people across the UK who cannot get a loan from more traditional lenders.
This is complicated, and the answer is, it depends. When you apply for a loan with Everyday Loans, we use soft search technology. This means other lenders will not be able to see your initial application on your credit history. We only do a hard credit check if you accept our loan offer once we have had an in-person meeting. This hard credit check will show on your credit history.
Other lenders may use a hard credit check when you submit your initial application. This can be seen by other people when they check your credit, so it is worth making sure any lenders you apply with use soft search. That way, you can compare loans without risking your credit score.
