How to identify direct lender loans
These days, it’s become increasingly harder to tell the difference between direct lenders websites and broker sites. The good news is that any responsible lender will clearly tell you what they are, so if you can’t tell what type of website you’re applying on, that’s the first sign to stay away. Here are some easy signs:
- Direct lenders will clearly say that they provide direct loans
- Brokers use words such as ‘Introducer’ or ‘Appointed Representative’
- A website’s footer will always tell you what type of site you’re applying on
How to guarantee approval for a direct lender loan
No one can guarantee that you’ll be approved for a loan. Most direct lenders will be honest and tell you that they must carry out credit and affordability checks before they consider approving you. What you can do to help is provide as accurate information as possible. You’d be surprised how many people get declined by the lender directly because of incomplete or unverifiable information.
How quickly can I get funded?
At QuickLoansExpress, speed is in our name (quite literally). It only takes a few minutes to apply, you get an instant decision and the loan is funded within an hour. If we need further information from you, this can be extended to 4 hours, but most times, applications are dealt with same day.
Are customer prioritised by their credit score?
No! If you have a poor credit score, the above timeframes are not affected. We don’t treat people with a good credit file any better than those with a poor one. It is worth working to improve your credit score though, because the higher your credit score the better interest rate you’ll be offered.
What happens if I can’t pay back my loan?
Before you apply for online loans, you need to carefully check that you can afford the repayments, otherwise it could lead to serious money issues down the line. At the start of the lending process, you’ll see an online loan calculator with all the repayments laid out. Make sure you have enough disposable income to pay back these amounts monthly for the duration of the loan.
