Interest rates are fixed for the duration of your repayment period, however the rate you’re offered will depend on factors such as the amount you apply for, the term of the loan, your credit rating and your income. It may differ from the advertised “representative APR”.
What is APR?
The annual percentage rate is designed to provide an annual summary of the cost of a loan. It takes into account both interest and any mandatory charges to be paid (for example an arrangement fee) over the duration of a loan.
All lenders must calculate the APR of their products in the same way, and must tell you the APR before you sign an agreement, so for consumers it can be a handy tool for comparison.
Lenders are only obliged to award their advertised representative APR to 51% of people who take out the loan – the other 49% could pay more. That’s why it’s often referred to as representative.
