5. I have or have had credit problems including mortgage arrears, CCJs and missed payments?

This is not always a problem as lenders can cater for your needs, but you may be required to pay a higher rate of interest.

6. What are the Redemption penalties?

The majority of loans are now regulated by the Consumer Credit Act 1974, which means the maximum interest that can be charged on paying back the loan early is just 2 months interest. There are some exemptions to the act, including where the loan is being used for business purposes. In these cases the loan would be treated as unregulated and different redemption penalties could apply.

7. What interest rate will I have to pay?

As with most financial borrowings, the rate will all depend upon your personal circumstances. Lenders will take into account your age, income, credit history and your ability to repay the loan.
