What credit score do I need to get a NatWest loan?
NatWest typically offers loans to applicants with high credit scores. It's important to note that your credit record is just one factor that NatWest will consider. However if you don't have a high credit score, you're very unlikely to get approved for a NatWest loan.
A "Good" or "Excellent" credit rating would require a score of 881 or higher if you're referring to Experian's scale, 531 or higher if you're referring to Equifax's scale and 604 or higher if you're referring to TransUnion's scale.
Do NatWest loans give an instant decision?
Yes, NatWest offers instant decisions online in most cases (occasionally more information may be required). First, you can use the soft search eligibility checker to find out your chances of getting approved (this won't affect your credit score). Then, if you opt to go ahead and apply, you'll get an instant answer. NatWest can also offer same-day funding of your loan.
Can I get a second NatWest loan?
Yes, NatWest allows you to have more than one loan running at the same time. Each application for credit will be considered on its own merit. Alternatively, NatWest also allows you to effectively "top up" your loan, by closing your current loan and starting a new, larger loan.
