If you’re held back by a poor or limited credit record, applying for a loan with a guarantor could secure you a better rate than you might get alone.
UK Credit is a direct lender (not a broker) offering guarantor loans to help borrowers who don’t have fantastic credit records to access affordable credit. Guarantor loans require a friend or relative of the borrower to promise to step in if the borrower is unable to repay.
If your guarantor owns their home, UK Credit might be able to offer you a lower rate, but if your guarantor is a tenant, then all’s not lost. This product is designed for would-be borrowers whose guarantor doesn’t own their own home. However, your guarantor will need to have a good credit score.
Warning: late repayments can cause you serious money problems. See our debt help guides.
