What is a bad credit loan?
Bad credit loans are designed for people with poor credit histories. If you’ve had problems keeping up with your repayments in the past which have left a mark on your credit history, you might find it more difficult to be accepted for a loan now – that’s where we may be able to help with our loans for bad credit.
Here at Ocean Finance, we specialise in finding the right loans for people with bad credit histories. Whether you require extremely bad credit loans or just have a less-than-ideal credit history, we’ll help you find the solution. We don’t rule borrowers out because of missed repayments, CCJs or sparse credit histories. Instead, we aim to find competitive rates so even those with a bad credit history can secure the finance they need.
What is a bad credit secured loan?
If you’re a homeowner and have a poor credit history, you can secure a loan against your home, which gives the lender extra security in case you fail to meet your repayments. Because it’s secured against your home, your property will be at risk if you fail to meet your repayments. The good news is that with these loans for bad credit, no guarantor is required.

Are bad credit loans safe?
