Take Out a Guarantor Loan

Make payments on time

Remember: if you have a guarantor, doesn’t mean you can get the loan no matter what. The bank will still look at your credit rating to get an idea if you can pay the loan back in a timely fashion. Actually, the amount should fall within 1/10th of your monthly salary. This will help the bank make the deal.

Know the Risks

We suggest that you let the guarantor know the related risks and responsibilities. Who can be the guarantor? The guarantor can be anyone, such as your friend, parent, sibling or some other person.

Apply Directly

If you are going to get the loan via a broker, you may have to pay the extra charges for the service. You don’t want to pay the unnecessary expenses. What you may want to do is go directly to the lender in order to avoid the additional expenses.

Choose the lender carefully

There is no doubt that you should not just choose any lender. It’s a good idea to ask several lenders for quotes. This will help you choose the best lender who you can apply to for a loan. Even if you have a bad credit rating, your guarantor will give you a chance to borrow from the lender.

Understand the Consequences

You may want to keep in mind that if you fail to pay back the loan, your credit rating will get effected. The entire burden will not be on you because you have a guarantor involved, but the rating will be reflected on your documents. If you already have a bad credit rating, you will find it harder to get a loan down the road. Aside from this, it will be even harder for you find a good guarantor.
