Refused a Loan

Specialist Loans For Employed & Self Employed.


If you have previously been refused a loan it is often helpful to understand that there may be other loan plans available for you and explore your other options for raising the finance that you require. If you are in this situation then you have come to the right place, we specialise in helping our customers who may have struggled getting a loan in the past.

Receiving a `No` from a particular loan lender doesn`t always mean a no to raising the money that you are after with a loan or even a remortgage. By contacting First Choice Finance you can get help, access to multiple lenders, and a no obligation free quote from a company with 25 years experience. During that time we have successfully sorted loans for those who have previously been refused. For a no obligation chat with our in house finance team give us a call on 0333 003 1505 (mobile), 0800 298 3000 (landline) or spend a minute filling in our on line enquiry form and we will come back to you .

Loan Lending Criteria

The loan lending criteria for a lender are the basic principles they use to determine if they are willing to give you the money that you are requesting or alternatively how much they may be willing to lend you with what is known as a revised offer. The vital thing to grasp is that there are many loan lenders and many types of loan products aimed at many different comsumer areas, including those who have been refused a loan. In essence if you have been declined finance it will come down to the loan lending criteria. This is broken down into several prominent categories:

  • Your credit history i.e. how well you have conducted your credit payments over the last 4 years
  • Your age at the moment and how old you will be when the loan term you prefer comes to an end
  • The equity available in your property is a key factor for homeowner secured loans and remortgages
  • Having a regular income that you can prove (e.g. do you have payslips) and your time in employment
  • The type of property you live in and to some degree potentially the area it is in, again this applies to remortgaging and secured loans only

Refused A Loan, What Now?

Being refused a loan can be problematic but it doesn`t mean it is the end of the road for your financial aspirations. Many thousands of people have credit issues but take a conscious step to get themselves back in control and win over their financial predicament. You may have been refused a loan for a number of reasons but it is generally related to the items listed above, however many lenders do not count all of these as key factors so getting help from someone who knows which lenders match your circumstances and still approve them may be the key to getting accepted for a loan.

Once you have been refused it is best that you do not simply keep applying for other loans without a strategy. This can be one of the worst things you can do as any application will be recorded on your credit file and affect your score, often negatively. By acting prudently you can prevent any further reason for a lender to refuse your loan. At this point, if you haven`t already done so we urge you to contact a seasoned broker like ourselves, it can often be the difference between a refused loan and a successful one. We want you to be on the successful side so if you have an idea of the loan you are after simply fill in our short online application for at the top of the page and we can get back to you with a free no obligation quote.

Refused A Loan But Have Good Credit

As we have explained earlier having bad credit isn`t the only reason you may have been refused a loan. If you have previously carried out a credit search on yourself and been told that you have good credit it can be surprising if you have applied for a loan that has been refused. However, there is no reason to be disheartened, being refused a loan doesn`t all of a sudden mean that your credit score has plummeted, it could simply be that the lender you have gone to isn`t happy to lend on your particular circumstance. Factors such as your age or not having had any credit in the last few years are enough to stop some lenders approving you. We have a competitive panel of loan lenders for personal secured loans that lend on a wide variety of situations for homeowner loans and we have access to both personal and guarantor loans through our established associate businesses . With many specialist lenders on board we can provide you with access to lending in those cases that most people consider out of the ordinary. Good, fair or poor credit files, employed or self employed or recent home movers we aim to have some loan plans available for all. It could be well worth your while giving us a call, contact the finance team on 0800 298 3000 (from a landline) 0333 003 1505 (mobile friendly) or fill in the short form starting at the top right of this page and we will get started on getting you accepted for finance asap.

Poor Credit Loans

Whatever the reason you have been refused a loan, it is true that the largest offender is often down to having some poor credit. If you are looking at securing a loan in this situation either enquire to us now or head over to our page on poor credit loan options. If a poor credit homeowner loan is looking too expensive we also have access to many guarantor loans that require no credit history for you whatsoever and will not be secured against your property. For more information on your options if you have been refused a loan contact us at your earliest convenience.
