There are some requirements that need to met when applying for loans for bad credit in order for them to be approved.
1. Credit History Check
Applying for a bad credit loan does not necessarily mean that there will be no credit history check. If a credit check identifies that you have a bad credit rating or score, this could simply affect the amount of interest and other fees that you are required to pay. It may also restrict the loan amount that you can apply for and you may be required to provide additional security for the loan to be approved.
2. Proof Of Income
You will need to provide documented proof of income to allow the loan provider to determine whether you have the ability to repay the loan. Normally, payslips for 3 to 6 months will be required. If you are self-employed, a commission earner or simply don’t receive a payslip, bank statements that reflect your income should suffice. In some cases, previous tax returns can also be used as proof of income.
3. Personal Information
You will need to supply the loan provider with all your personal information including:
– Your full name, age and date of birth.
– Your address, telephone numbers and email address.
– Your employer’s name, address and contact numbers.
– A means of identification.
– A contact reference in the form of a family member or friend not residing or living with you.
It is important to check whether your personal information will be kept private, safe and secure when applying for a loan, especially if you are doing so online.
4. Banking Details
Most bad credit loan providers will not give you cash in hand and will require your banking details in order to transfer the funds. Once again, it is important to ensure that this information will be kept securely.
If you do not have a bank account or there may be a problem transferring the funds, it is advisable to open a new account. Some bad credit loan providers may provide the option for the funds to be transferred into the account of a friend or family member.
5. Security Requirements
Due to the fact that loans for bad credit are more risky for the loan provider than traditional loans, you may be required to provide additional security in order for the loan to be approved. This can come in the form of:
– A security deposit.
– Collateral in the form of valuable assets that will be seized upon non-payment of the loan.
– A guarantor to cosign the loan who will be held responsible for the full amount should you be unable to repay the loan.
Make sure that you have all the necessary information and meet the specific requirements before applying for a loan for bad credit. This will ensure that the application process is much faster and more efficient. It is also more likely that the loan will be approved if you meet all the necessary requirements.
