Term of Repayment and APR
The loans offered through lending platform on this website have minimum repayment terms of 1 month and maximum repayment terms of 36 months and not all lending partners offer up to £10,000 loans, and not all applicants will be approved for their requested loan amounts. APR rates range from 45.3% APR to 1575% APR. The rate is subject to change and the representative APR may not be the rate you'll receive. The rate you pay depends on your circumstances and loan amount, and may differ from the Representative APR.
We always recommend repaying on time but If you are struggling, or think there is a possibility that you will not be able to meet the agreed repayments, you must contact your money lender as soon as possible to avoid adverse action. They will inform you about their collection process and about any possibility to reschedule or otherwise restructure your loan repayments.
FinancialNeeds does not engage in collection practices as lenders collect policies vary.
Additional interest and/or charges may be applied to your account if your payment is not received on the agreed due date.
Your lender may want to re-assess your financial situation to understand if your late payment was a one off or likely to happen again. Lenders might look to alter your payment schedule if this could help prevent late payments from occurring again in the future. Lenders may also report late payments to Credit Reference Agencies, this could have a negative impact on your credit score and affect your ability to obtain credit again in the future.
Implications of Non-Payment
Additional interest and/or charges may be applied to your account if a payment is missed entirely.
Before you borrow money make sure you fully understand the interest rates, fees and the terms laid out in the loan agreement. If you cannot afford your agreed repayment(s), this may have a negative impact on your credit report and could affect your ability to borrow again in the future. We strongly recommend that you contact your lender in the first instance, they will need to be aware of your change in financial circumstances before they can present alternative methods of repayment to suit you. Collection processes can vary depending on your loan provider. If you do not contact your lender about your circumstances they may pass your account to a third-party collections agency, or attempt to take you to court for non-payment to register a County Court Judgment (CCJ) against you.
If you wish to renew your loan, please discuss this with your lender in advance. Most lenders will charge the same rate of interest and fees for another month on the entire amount owed. In the event of non-payment, a loan renewal/extension could be automatic and further interest and/or charges may be added to your account.
