If you have been declined for a loan you may have been told that it`s because of a low credit score or a low credit rating. Fortunately there are competitive loan lenders who want to help you borrow the money you are seeking - who do not rely on your credit score to approve your loan.
A low credit rating may be because you`ve have credit problems in the past or perhaps you haven`t taken any credit out over a number of years. It could also be something fairly simple such as you not being on the voters roll, or you have taken time out of work for a while - alternatively you may have quite recently become self-employed.

Sub prime, non status and credit impaired are just some of the ways that some lenders refer to the customers whom they decide not to deal with and decline to help. Understanding how this can arise can help you avoid credit problems in the future and get you on the road to recovery. It is also worth considering teaming up with your partner / spouse and looking at a joint loan, or even choosing the one of you with the better credit profile to go for it. Looking into joint loans for bad credit is clearly not for every scenario, but can work for some!
Like many UK loan or mortgage products much is often made of how your have managed your credit in the past. It may be that you have been snubbed by other lending institutions because you have had problems with a loan, finance agreement, credit cards or a mortgage - even if it wasn`t your fault.
Many UK homeowner and personal loan clients have found themselves in difficulties for many reasons such as:
Redundancy;- certainly over the last decade many uk homeowners have found that their secure jobs vanished over night leaving them unable to fulfil their credit commitments.
Illness;- if you are unable to work through illness or had to leave your job because you were no longer able to continue, it is often difficult to find alternative work and this can lead to poor credit.
Accidents;- if you have had an accident and you cant work you may well find that you can`t keep up with your bills, regardless of who`s fault it was, even if you received compensation the damage to your credit score may have already been done.
Easy Credit;- Offered and been tempted by multiple `easy` access credit lines such as store cards, fast small loans and credit cards which have snowballed into a set of payments which you are no longer able / are struggling to meet and are now causing issues with meeting other key home bills.
Your previous credit problems might have resulted in you having demerits on your credit file such as defaults and county court judgements. It might be that you have attempted to resolve your problems with a debt management plan (DMP) or an IVA (Individual Voluntary Arrangement). All of this can cause problems when you apply for a UK homeowner loan but at My Sort of Loan we are confident that we will still try to find the right loan solution for you.

Of course it isn`t always the case that a low credit score is necessarily a result of previous credit problems and My Sort of Loan can cater for this too. Perhaps you aren`t the sort of person who uses a credit card at all, or chooses not to take point of sale credit? It may just be that you have always waited to save up for the things you want and haven`t used any credit.

The lack of a varied credit history can make life almost as difficult as having poor credit when applying for a UK homeowner loan.
