Find a low-cost loan with Ocean

If you’ve applied for loans on the high street and have been rejected, you might think low-cost loans aren’t available to you. But that’s not necessarily true.

If you’ve missed payments in the past, have CCJs or arrears, lenders may see you as more of a risk to lend to. However, we still may be able to help you find a low-cost loan.

We specialise in helping people with poor credit ratings. Whether you’re looking for a loan to make some changes to your home, to make a big purchase, or even to consolidate your existing debts, we may be able to help. Get a quote today.

We offer two types of loan – homeowner and personal:

Homeowner loans

A homeowner loan is secured against your property, which means you’ll only be eligible for one if you own your own home or have a mortgage. A homeowner loan is generally for a large amount of money, and you can usually borrow over a long period too.

  • Borrow £10,000 to £250,000
  • Available over 3 to 30 years
  • We compare 100s of loans with competitive rates

We arrange secured loans from a panel of lenders. We will receive a commission from the lender upon completion. A fee of 12.5% of the net loan amount, capped at £2975, is payable upon completion. The actual rate available will depend upon your circumstances. Ask for a personalised illustration.

Personal Loans

Personal loans aren’t secured against your property, so you don’t need to own your own home to be eligible.

  • Borrow £100 to £10,000
  • Available over 3 months to 5 years
  • Use for almost any purpose

Unsecured loans: 49.9% APR Representative. Ocean, a trading style of Intelligent Lending limited. We are a broker, not a lender. To find you a loan, we work with a preferred lender panel as well as panels operated by other brokers. We will search the lenders in order of who offers the best representative APR, first from our preferred panel and then from the panels of other brokers.

How do I get a low interest rate on my loan?

What determines a low interest rate at any given time will depend on the loans market and your personal circumstances. Generally, the interest rate will be affected by the current Bank of England base rate, the availability of credit in the market and the demand for loans at any given time.

Your individual circumstances also play a big part in the rate you’re offered. A loan for someone with a perfect credit history is likely to be cheaper than a loan for a borrower with a less-than-perfect credit history.

Here at Ocean, we have specific loans to help people with different credit histories. We have low-cost loans for people with good and fair credit histories and we also have access to loans designed for people with bad credit ratings.
