Don’t let bad credit stop you from getting a loan!

You may have a poor credit history because you’ve previously defaulted on a loan, missed credit card payments, have mortgage arrears or a CCJ against your name, but it doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t get a good deal on a loan. In fact, Ocean specialise in finding loans for people with a poor credit history.

If you’re accepted for a loan, paying it back on time each month can actually help you rebuild your credit history, as it shows lenders that you can borrow money responsibly, which should be reflected in your credit report.

Loans for debt consolidation

As long as your finances are in good shape now, a debt consolidation loan could help you simplify your repayments. You can use the loan to pay off your existing debts, so you’re left with just one manageable monthly repayment, instead of lots of smaller ones. It may mean that you’re repaying for longer and you may also pay more interest overall.

What types of poor credit loans are available?

There are two different types of loan that you may be eligible for – a homeowner loan, or a personal loan.

A homeowner loan, or a secured loan as they’re sometimes called, is secured against your property, so you have to own your own home to be eligible. They’re generally for larger amounts of money (around £10,000 to £150,000) and the repayment period ranges from 5 to 25 years. Because they are secured against your property your home may be at risk if you don’t keep up the repayments.

A personal loan, or an unsecured loan isn’t secured against property, so you don’t have to own your own property. Compared to homeowner loans, they’re usually for smaller amounts (£2,000 to £5,000) and the repayment period is shorter too – usually 2 to 4 years, depending on how much you borrow.
