What is a guarantor loan?

It's simply a way of borrowing the money you need with a little help from a friend or family member


 

Your guarantor can be anyone who trusts you financially – a friend, partner, family member or colleague who simply acts as back up should you be unable to make your repayments. Guarantors can be either homeowners or non-homeowners/tenants – we have a loan for everyone no matter what your circumstance.

What makes guarantor loans from UK Credit even better? We’re known for our excellent customer service and we offer a variety of APRs from as low as 37.9% where the rate you get is tailored to you. To see what rate you could get, try our calculator below.

Who are UK Credit?

Established in 2010, UK Credit is now one of the most trusted guarantor lenders in the UK

 

We're responsible

All of our loans are assessed on affordability. We use your credit rating to determine the best APR for your circumstances and then we make sure you can afford the loan repayments. After all, we’re here to make your life easier.

 

We're direct

UK Credit is a direct lender for guarantor loans. We’re not a broker and we will never ask you for any upfront fees. Once you’ve applied for a loan through our secure application, our trusted representatives will be here to help get your loan paid out as quickly as possible.

 

We're unique

Not only does UK Credit offer a product where the rate offered reflects your personal circumstances, we also believe that you should also be considered regardless of whether your guarantor owns their home or not. Many lenders will not consider applicants with a tenant guarantor – we will.

We hope that you have enough information to rest assured our guarantor loans are right for you. For a little more, read our FAQs below

What is a guarantor loan?

A guarantor loan is an unsecured personal loan, but if the monthly repayments are not made by the borrower they will need to be met by a third party – the ‘guarantor’.

Who can be a guarantor?

  • Your guarantor can be anyone, they are usually a friend, partner, colleague or relative.
  • They must have a fairly good credit history.
  • Be aged between 21 and 70 at the start of the loan term.
  • They can be employed, self employed or retired.

Is my home at risk?

No, the loan is unsecured – your home is not at risk.

Will my past financial problems be an issue?

We will consider a broad range of financial backgrounds and people with poor or limited credit history. We won’t, unfortunately, be able to help if you’re in an IVA, a Debt Management Plan or if you’ve recently been bankrupt.

The unique nature of guarantor loans means that the guarantor protects the loan repayments if the borrower cannot make them, so we do require the guarantor to have a fairly good credit rating.

For our homeowner guarantor loan we conduct a soft credit search and use the borrowers credit score to determine what APR should be offered and to establish an understanding of their credit history.

What happens if I can't pay?

We understand that life doesn’t go to plan, so if you’re the borrower and you find yourself struggling financially, please get in touch with us as soon as possible. We will work with you to resolve the situation.

If the loan falls into arrears and the borrower is unable to make up the shortfall we will inform the guarantor.

If neither party is able to make repayments, then we may consider legal action but only if we have exhausted all reasonable options.

Do you charge any upfront fees?

No, absolutely not. UK Credit will not charge you any upfront fees to apply for your loan, nor will we add any fees to your loan agreement.

If a broker has charged you a fee to apply for one of our guarantor loans, please let us know. We choose our partners and brokers carefully to ensure they share our passion for treating customers fairly.
