What are Instalment Loans?

It is a personal loan which can be borrowed for a period of up to 1 year. The loan has to be repaid with a set number of scheduled payments as agreed by both the lender and the borrower. The monthly repayments include principal and the interest amount – which has to be paid by the borrower. It offers flexibility and convenience to borrowers who are looking to fund small expenses and need the money for a very short period of time.

An instalment loan in the UK is manageable as a borrower do not have to repay the amount in one go. Most of the lenders allow repayment in equal monthly instalment. That means a borrower knows how much amount he has to pay the next month. This process will help the borrowers to manage their personal finance efficiently without facing any adverse situation.

How Do Instalment Loans Work online in the UK?

The rates of interest offered on an instalment loan in the UK vary dramatically from lender to lender. However, these loans are quite famous under the tag of High-cost Short-term Credit (HCSTC). The process of applying for this credit product is not different from any other personal loan.

A borrower who has availed a loan has to repay the amount in affordable monthly instalments. People generally borrow this loan to fund a big expense that may take up to a year for them to repay. It is important to repay the amount though. Failure in repayments may severely damage your credit score. It is not easy to borrow money with a damaged history and the rate of interest you will be offered will be quite higher.

Instalment Loans UK and Poor credit score

Our situations are never under our control. Due to a delay in salary receipt or anything, you must have missed the payment date of your bills which were due. This one single thing would have hurt your score. A missed credit card payment would have resulted in a similar way. Therefore, at Oyster Loan, we understand that a person’s finances cannot be determined only on the basis of a credit score.

The panel of lenders we deal with offer instalment loans for poor credit without impacting your already damaged credit score. Though chances of approval on this kind of loan depends on the affordability check. Before the final approval of the loan, lenders are required to perform a hard credit check as mandated by the financial regulator (Financial Conduct Authority). The lenders will offer you a soft quote initially with soft credit check– that will give you an overall idea of the rates that you will be offered.

Also, borrowing a short-term loan may recover your credit score, only if you repay the amount regularly – in full and on time. The improvement is a gradual process and will take time, your efforts and patience to revive its current state.
