In short it is not possible to get a loan in the UK without first being credit checked, every FCA authorised lender must perform viability checks on potential customers. So bear this in mind if this is the type of loan you are looking for. If you put the term into a search engine, it will bring up a huge list of pages of websites seemingly offering this type of loan. Some will be lenders but the list will also include articles like this, reviews and other things, which can make it quite hard work to identify the legitimate lenders. The prospect of trawling through all of these is difficult and then you will need to think about how you will choose between them. One way of getting round this is to use a company that can search for you.
Companies such as Omacl, can help to pair you up with a lender, without so much effort from you. You let them know what you are looking for in terms of a payday loan and they will match you up with a lender that can fit those criteria. This can include telling them how much you want to borrow, what repayment terms you want and things like this. This has many advantages:
Representative Example: £400 borrowed for 90 days. Total amount repayable is £561.92 in 3 monthly instalments of £187.31. Interest charged is £161.92, interest rate 161.9% (variable). Representative 305.9% APR. We are a broker not a lender. We don't charge fees. We don't sell your personal information.
Fast – It is very much quicker for them to do a search than you. They have details of various lenders and will be able to search through those and show you the best fit. If you tried to do that yourself you would have to spend a lot of time looking online and searching for all of the payday advance lenders that exist and then trawling through their terms to compare them. This would not only take a lot of time, it could be pretty difficult to find all of the information and you would have to find a way of noting it all to make sure that you could compare it.
Easy – There is far less effort in just putting in a few details and waiting to see what they come up with compared with searching through all of the possibilities yourself. They may still be some people that would rather do the research themselves of course but if you find looking at terms and conditions difficult and are not keen on trawling through websites then you will be unlikely to want to do this. You will need to have a lot of spare time on your hands to be able to do this.
Cheaper – Although if you look through every possible lender you could find the cheapest, chances are that you will not find all of the loans available and may miss the cheapest on offer. This will mean that you can borrow the money without having to pay over the odds for the loan, which will be very beneficial to you.
Trustworthy – Sites such as Omacl will match you with a lender that is willing to lend to you based on your application. They will make sure that they are a genuine lender because they want to make sure that they get their commission for recommending them. This means that you should be able to trust them as well. However, it is still best to do a bit of research yourself just to make sure that this really is the case.
You can see why it can be really beneficial to use a company like this. It can not only save you a lot of time and effort but it can take the stress out of finding an online or bad credit loan. It is likely that if you are looking or a loan it is because you need some money quickly and so you will not have the time to look at lots of lenders and compare them. It is also likely that you will be panicked and sometimes, if we are feeling full of emotion, it means that we do not think very clearly and therefore do not make the best decisions. Therefore having a tool that will help you can take away a lot of the worry and mean that you should hopefully find a loan that will suit your needs and not be more expensive than necessary.
