It varies depending on your credit history and your income, but you can usually borrow between £1,000 and £10,000.

Are guarantor loans more expensive?

Yes, they can cost more than normal unsecured loans because the rates are much higher, but they may be cheaper than other bad credit loans.

Can I list my spouse as a guarantor?

No, but friends or relatives can be listed on your loan application.

What happens if I cannot pay back my loan?

The person listed as your guarantor will be responsible for paying back your loan. If your guarantor cannot pay your loan, they could be taken to court.

What happens if I die before my loan is paid back?

Your guarantor may have to pay back the rest of your loan. Read the terms of your loan and check your guarantor is happy with them before you apply.

Will a guarantor loan affect my credit rating?

Yes, so avoid making too many applications in a short space of time as it could negatively impact your credit history.
