What are Smart Loans in UK?

Created: 2016-11-03 07:00:00

Smart loans in UK are short term loans of relatively small amounts available for any and sundry that needs some urgent cash. Smart loans are typically available in a few hours, latest in a day or two. Smart loans in UK do not require any security, collateral, guarantor or cosigner. No credit check is performed so the credit history doesn’t really influence eligibility. The credit history can help your case if you have a good score but if the lender specifically mentions there is no credit check then the credit score doesn’t matter at all. You can however opt for a larger loan amount if you have excellent credit. Also, very poor credit will make you ineligible for high loan amounts even if your income substantiates your affordability.

Smart loans in UK are not very different from typical short term loans. Your personal identity, financial details and professional information would be the determining factors. The loan amount will be determined by your ability to repay and your eventual approval will depend on whether or not you tick the checkboxes of standard eligibility criteria. Some lenders may have additional eligibility criteria which will be communicated to you at the time of approval. Such information is also usually available on the websites of lenders.

The process of identifying and choosing lenders of smart loans is similar to that of other short term loans. You should find a company that is preferred by others, has a good track record and specializes in the type of loan you want. For instance, you may wish to go for payday loans which will be repaid in one lump sum amount on your next payday. You may want your smart loans in UK to be short term loans that you can repay over a year or two. Choose a lender according to your needs and if the lender can satiate them.
