Norwich Trust loans calculator and review
You can apply for a Norwich Trust (formerly UK Credit) unsecured homeowner loan from £3,000 to £20,000, with fixed rates and no upfront fees.
UK Credit, the sister brand of Norwich Trust, used to handle 2 types of loans. To better cater to customer needs, the company has transferred its unsecured homeowner loan accounts to Norwich Trust. UK Credit will still oversee its guarantor loan accounts.
Norwich Trust is a direct lender (not a broker) serving people who may have struggled with finances before. Its loans are designed for people who may find it hard to get a loan from high street lenders but don’t want to put forward their home as collateral.
What is an unsecured loan?
An unsecured loan is a loan that doesn’t require you to put any assets at risk should you default on the loan. A better credit score is often required to take out an unsecured loan, as there is no collateral protecting the lender.
How does a Norwich Trust unsecured loan work?
Norwich Trust’s rates are tailored to you and may vary from the advertised representative APR. You can apply in as little as a few minutes with no impact on your credit rating. Your credit rating will only be impacted when the loan is paid out. You must be a homeowner to apply for the loan.
You won’t be hit with any upfront fees, and because the interest rates are fixed, you’ll always pay the same each month. You can request an early settlement figure, which includes an early settlement interest of approximately 2 months interest and is valid for 28 days.

What is APR?If you’re comparing any credit-based products, it won’t be long before you’ll come across the Annual Percentage Rate (APR). This figure 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) throughout 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.
Bear in mind, however, that lenders are only obliged to award this rate to 51% of those who take out the loan – the other 49% could pay more. That’s why it’s often referred to as the representative APR.

As with any loan, you should only borrow within your means. If you can’t make the repayments, you run the risk of damaging your credit score.
