Can I get a £500 loan with no guarantor?

Yes. There are lenders that offer loans for £500 without the need for a guarantor. It’s worth noting that if you have bad credit but can provide a suitable guarantor, your chances of being accepted for a loan are likely to increase and the interest rate you are offered is likely to be lower. So although not always easy, a guarantor loan is worth considering.

Can I still apply for a 500 pound loan with bad credit?

Yes. We work with a diverse panel of lenders that consider applicants for a range of credit profiles. If you do have a poor credit history and are looking to apply for a loan, the best place to start is by completing a Choose Wisely loan search. This takes two minutes to complete and will allow you to compare lenders that have accepted your application in principle before you apply directly and undergo a hard credit check.

Do I have to repay a £500 loan over 12 months or on my next payday?

When applying for a loan the lenders number one consideration when deciding if they should grant you the loan is whether or not you will be able to afford to make the repayments. They want to make sure lending to you is not going to put you under increased financial pressure and that you can afford, and be trusted, to make the repayments. As part of this decision process you will be credit checked by the lender.
