How do I apply
Whether you already have a bank account with Santander or you are a new customer, you can apply in two main ways:
- Online. You can apply directly from Santander’s website. It shouldn’t take more than 10-15 minutes and you won’t need to get up from your sofa. Just make sure you read the fine print carefully before completing the application.
- In branch. If you’d rather sort your loan out in person, you can either pop-in to the nearest Santander branch or book an appointment online. Booking in advance is usually better – you won’t waste any time waiting for a staff member to become available.
In both cases, be prepared to provide three years of address history, details of your financial situation and income (including details of your employer), and the bank account number and sort code from which you want the monthly direct debits to repay the loan to be taken from.
