What is an adverse credit loan?
‘Adverse Credit’ is a term used to describe a less-than-perfect record of repaying the credit that they have taken out. Any company that allows you to borrow money, reports back to credit reference agencies. When applying for credit, the company will perform a credit check and can see your credit history.
If you have made late payments, had a default or a CCJ, this will show on your credit file. Some lenders will not approve customers who need an adverse credit loan as they only approve customers with a good or excellent credit rating, however, we work with a panel of lenders who specialise in providing adverse credit loans.
All lenders are different when it comes to the types of customers that they will accept for credit. Banks and Building Societies, for instance, have a very low threshold for risk, therefore will only offer customers with a good/excellent credit rating a loan. Many lenders in the UK though will now offer loans to customers who have experienced some adverse credit or who have a bad credit rating. Upwards works with many of these lenders and is in a position to be able to help a wide variety of customers, no matter what their credit status.
As all direct lenders have their own criteria in terms of the bad credit ratings that they will accept, there is no such thing as a guaranteed loan. All lenders will assess the credit history of an applicant and also look at whether or not they can afford the repayments on the short term loan that they are applying for. Customers looking for an adverse credit loan will find it more difficult to be accepted but at Upwards we approve 95% of applications, meaning if you need a loan with adverse credit, we are well placed to help you.

Are adverse credit loans expensive?
If you need an adverse credit loan it is clear that you will pay a higher interest rate than someone who has a perfect credit rating. This is because lenders will assess the level of risk you pose in paying the loan back. loans for bad credit are available in the UK at various interest rates. Upwards works with a large panel of direct lenders to make sure that you get the best adverse credit loan for your circumstances.
As all lenders are now authorised and regulated by The Financial Conduct Authority the maximum amount of interest that they can charge is 0.8% per day, this means that you will know that your loan is fully regulated and you are protected against lenders charging extortionate interest rates, even if you have adverse credit.
