What are no credit check loans?

No credit check loans lend money without checking your credit history and if you can afford the repayments. However, credit checks are required by the regulating body, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), so no reputable loan company will offer such a product.

However, there are alternatives. At The Money Shop, we pride ourselves on working with a broker partner whose panel of lenders consider all aspects of an applicant’s finances. While all loans require a credit check, their lenders also consider your current income and employment status so you can feel confident that your credit application won’t be overlooked based on your credit score alone.

  • Able to prove a regular income

Loan calculators provide a representative example of the type of loan lenders can offer you.

This information will include the total amount you will need to pay back, the level of interest you will need to pay, and the repayment period they would offer you. 

No, you cannot get a loan from a reputable lender in the UK without a credit check. Not only are credit checks a good way of assessing whether you can afford to take out a loan, but they are also required by the regulating body, the FCA (Financial Conduct Authority). Any lender offering a no credit check loan offers an unregulated service and could leave you with further debts, so we highly recommend you focus your loan search on regulated lenders. 

While you may still be tempted to approach a lender that offers loans without any credit check, we urge you to avoid companies that claim to offer this service. Lenders who provide loans without any credit check will not be regulated by the FCA and therefore offer an unregulated service that could potentially stretch your finances even further. Many of these loans are only offered by illegal lenders and demand high repayments, which could result in increased debt and further damage to your credit score.

Applying to borrow money through The Money Shop is a fast and convenient way of covering any unexpected bills and costs that might come your way. But while our service is the right option for many people, it doesn’t mean it’s right for you. Before borrowing money, you should consider whether you have the income to pay back your loan, including any interest. You should also consider any factors that could affect your ability to pay back your loan, such as health problems or issues with job security. If you feel a loan could be the wrong choice, try to find an alternative, such as borrowing from friends or family or dipping into savings. 

When you borrow money, you are required to pay it back according to an agreed repayment schedule. The schedule is decided directly with your lender before you commit to borrowing money, so you will have the chance to see how much you will owe in total and how much each repayment will cost. Lenders are generally happy for customers to pay back a loan early, which will reduce your costs. 

If you fail to stick to the repayment schedule you have agreed with your lender, you may be required to pay the penalty or late fee. This additional cost will be added to your total debt – increasing the amount you owe – and could affect your credit score. By missing payments, you could reduce your chance of being accepted for a loan in the future, so please take the time to consider whether you can cover repayments before applying for and committing to a loan. 

It’s impossible to know what the future holds, and sometimes, life can throw you a financial curveball that leaves even the most financially stable struggling to make ends meet. At The Money Shop, our broker partner’s lenders provide fast loans to customers in need of emergency cash ahead of payday. Once you have been approved, your loan will be delivered straight into your bank account on the same day.
