Q: How do I know if i have an adequate cash flow to repay the loan?

Before taking out any loan with a legal loan UK with same day payout or other loans, the direct lender or broker must perform affordability and credit checks. We look at how much you are earning a month and how much goes towards paying your bills. We also look at other factors to determine your affordability. If the cost of the loan does not add up with your wages and bills, you are most likely to be refused. However sometimes, lenders will offer to spread the cost of the loan over more months so that the payment is less each month and you will be able to afford the loan. You can also use our loan calculator on our apply page to see how much you would be expected to pay each month.

This is your age, job and other existing financial commitments.

This is likely to influence our and other lenders decision of approval for a loan. We use Equifax and callcredit as our credit reference agencies.
