How we size up

When comparing us to other lenders, we think we size up pretty well. Having a guarantor on the loan allows us to offer affordable loans to those who can't access credit from a bank, with absolutely no fees or charges. We're one of the next best options.

*We're also completely regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority*

Want to know if you fit the bill?

Being a guarantor is pretty simple. We don't have a crazy criteria, however you do need to meet the following:

takes minutes to complete an application

You'll need to be between the ages of 18-75.

We never charge fees

We're more likely to accept you if you own your own home. If not, you'll need to have a strong credit history.

We spread the cost over affordable monthly repayments

You'll need to be happy to pay if for any reason you are needed to. This means, we'll just need to double check you can afford the monthly repayments, as we wouldn't want to leave you short if you did need to pay.
