Offering and rates are fine but communication needs improvement

Having booked to have my front door and some windows replaced in my house from a service company they offered me the ability to pay in installments using a loan from Creation. The work was done quickly and there were no issues over my loan; however, communication from Creation in terms of confirmation over the loan, repayment amounts and repayment dates were not sent to me until after the work was done and even then the direct debit was set up without confirmation of what exactly was happening.

Creation aim to provide straightforward products and their personal loan fulfils this brief. Their website is easy to use, their application criteria are standard for the market and they offer a range of representative APRs depending on the amount applied for. As with like most other lenders just beware that the actual rate your offered could differ from the representative APR that's shown on site. The reason being that the rate offered also takes into account your personal circumstances.

When applying for a loan with Creation you will need to have good credit history – no blemishes or slip ups. One thing that does differ from competitors is that you need to be over 23, the majority of lenders say you need to be over 18 or 21, so just bear that mind.

TrustPilot paints a somewhat of a negative picture of creation, with a score of only 2.8 out of 10. These are mainly for their retail finance rather than their loans, but some there are some complaints of disorganisation (including losing documents and getting personal details wrong) and missed payment charges, which is quite common.

Overall verdict: Creation are a decent company with a straightforward product. If you have good credit then Creation are worth researching if not then look elsewhere.

About Creation Personal Loan

Creation offer personal loans between £1,000 and £25,000 which can be paid in fixed monthly increments over one to five years. They advertise a representative APR of 9.9% for amounts between £7,500 and £10,000 and this will change for higher or lower amounts but there are no hidden or arrangement fees to pay.
