Can I get a £25,000 loan?

Realistically, borrowing £25,000 without security is highly likely to require a very good credit score. While personal loans are available from both traditional and more specialised lenders, and come in a variety of forms: secured, unsecured, short term, long term etc., £25,000 is definitely at the upper end of the unsecured lending spectrum. The first step to taking out the right loan for your needs is to understand your options. If you don’t have the best borrowing history, a secured loan might be a better suited option for you. But as these loans are secured against an asset, usually your home, you could lose it if you don’t keep on top of your repayments.

Can I borrow £25,000 with good credit?

You’ll most probably have more options available to you if you’re looking at borrowing £25,000 and you have a good credit rating. You’re likely to be able to apply to the majority of lenders, but to get approved and enjoy the most competitive rates you’ll need to prove that the loan is affordable. Your current bank may offer larger sums and faster funding to existing customers, though it usually pays to shop around if you can.

Can I get a £25,000 loan with bad credit?

To get a £25,000 loan with bad credit, you’ll need to provide security – in other words, you’ll need to be a homeowner with a mortgage, and willing to use the equity in your property as security. You may choose to simply remortgage or you may opt to take out a “second-charge mortgage”, so that your first mortgage isn’t affected.

Having security means that a loan represents lower risk to a lender, which normally in turn means lower rates for the borrower (plus a stronger chance of getting approved). Just bear in mind that if you opt to spread repayment over, say, 25 years, however, then obviously the overall cost of borrowing will be much higher than borrowing over, say 10 years. It’s a big commitment, so take a moment to read through these guides:

How much is the monthly payment on a £25,000 loan?

This will depend on the interest rate you receive and the length of your loan term. For example, a £25k loan with a 10-year term and 5% fixed rate could have a monthly repayment of £265.16. In comparison, a £25,000 loan with a 5-year term and 10% fixed rate could cost £531.18 per month. You can calculate the cost of your £25k loan here.

5-year term£472£531£595

The loan examples above are calculated using a flat fixed rate and are only approximate, rounded figures. Your specific loan payments may be higher or lower depending on factors like your repayment schedule, loan term and potential fees.

Can I borrow £25,000 for a business?

Taking out a £25,000 loan for business purposes is different to doing the same for personal use. Often lenders specifically state that their loans cannot be used for a business. However, business loans are available, with some receiving government backing, which can lead to lower rates.

Aspects of your application that lenders consider

When applying for finance, you inevitably open yourself up to a degree of financial scrutiny. So what is a would-be lender looking for? Here are some of the main things they’re likely to be interested in:

  • Your reason for borrowing. What you’re using the loan for is without doubt of interest to the lender. Perhaps you’re looking to consolidate your debt or purchase a car, how wise a decision that will be will vary on other financial factors. If you’re considered less of a risk because of responsible borrowing, you’ll be seen as a stronger applicant.
  • Your credit record. Potential APR offers are affected by your credit rating, and you’ll need to be in the “good” range or higher for most lenders. There’s also the possibility of getting a loan for less, however, if your score doesn’t qualify you for the full £20,000.
  • Your income and expenditure. If you’re struggling to afford your existing obligations, or you’re spending like a footballer’s wife, lenders could be put off. Lenders tend to look at your debt-to-income ratio to determine if you’ll be able to make timely repayments.
  • Your employment status. How long have you been with your current employer? How stable a role is it? Lenders are risk-averse, so they’re looking to lend to the safest prospects first.
