Most online lenders offering guaranteed personal loans with bad credit actually offer payday loans or cash advance loans that feature limited terms and are not always the solution that bad credit applicants seek. However, not all lenders that offer guaranteed personal loans with bad credit limit their products to payday or cash advance loans, they can also include regular unsecured personal loans and sometimes secured personal loans based on equity.
What’s with the guarantee? Nobody can guarantee finance, what is guaranteed is the fact that credit score will only have a limited influence on the decisions of approval. The terms and requirements are made available to the applicant beforehand and therefore, the borrower knows for sure that if he meets the requirements listed and that if his credit score is above the minimum required, approval is guaranteed.
Brokers on the other hand, can only guarantee that they will put all their knowledge and expertise to find a lender that suits the needs of the borrower. Those that charge a fee for their services may guarantee approval but the guarantee covers only the result which implies that if the loan approval is not achieved, the broker will return the fees in full. This is called a money back or cash back guarantee.
Minimum Requirements For Cash Advances or Personal Loans
These loans are designed for those that feature a stained credit history and need financial aid in order to get back on track. How bad can your credit be? As long as you are not currently going through a bankruptcy process and even if you have a past (but discharged) bankruptcy, there are financial institutions willing to approve financial products. Nevertheless, the terms for approval won’t be the same ones than those offered to people with fair or perfect credit.
The minimum requirements include an income of at least $1000 for the past two or three months (stable income), a checking account which needs to be current and non delinquent and the borrower needs to be at least 18 years old in order to apply (changes from state to state).
As explained above, the borrower needs also not to be currently undergoing a bankruptcy process and sometimes lenders won’t approve a loan if there is a default on another financial product on your credit report that hasn’t been resolved yet.
Availability Of Funds And Repayment
The money you can obtain with these loans will take different times to be deposited into your account. When it comes to cash advance loans, the money is directly deposited by the next day you apply. The repayment is due by the next payday and can be directly withdrawn from your account too but generally, only the interests are withdrawn and the loan’s principal is renewed automatically if you don’t cancel the whole debt.
As regards to personal loans, they may take a bit longer to be deposited into your account unless of course you have a pre-approved personal loan with your local bank. In that case, you can even select the option from your online home banking site and the money is automatically credited to your account. The repayment will depend on the loan contract or online agreement.
