Doorstep Loans - Frequently Asked Questions
What is a doorstep loan?
A doorstep loan, also known as a home credit loan, is a specific type of personal loan that’s delivered directly to your door. This type of lending service is designed to offer a highly personal approach, providing the convenience of completing the entire loan process – from application to repayment – from the comfort of your home. The loan agent comes to your home to discuss your credit needs, explain the loan terms, and if approved, deliver the cash loan. They will also return to your home to collect weekly repayments, hence the name “doorstep loan”.
Who can apply for a doorstep loan?
Anyone can apply for a doorstep loan. They are designed to be accessible to a wide range of borrowers, including those with poor credit histories or those without a bank account. Doorstep loans are especially useful for individuals who prefer personal service and face-to-face communication, who may not have access to traditional banking services, or who are not comfortable with online or telephone banking. However, as with any loan, the applicant must prove that they have the means to repay the loan within the agreed terms.
What is the maximum amount I can borrow with a doorstep loan?
The maximum amount you can borrow with a doorstep loan depends on several factors including, but not limited to, your personal financial situation, your credit history, and the lender’s policies. Generally, doorstep loans are smaller loans, designed for short-term needs. The loan amount could range from £100 to £2,500, but it’s important to only borrow what you can afford to repay within the agreed terms. A representative from our team can work with you to assess your needs and circumstances and determine the most suitable loan amount for you.
How do I apply for a doorstep loan with your company?
Applying for a doorstep loan with our company is a simple, straightforward process. Start by filling out an application on our website. After we review your application, a local representative will reach out to arrange a home visit at a time that suits you. During this visit, the representative will discuss the terms and conditions of the loan, answer any questions you might have, and assess your income and expenses to ensure the loan is affordable for you. Once the loan is approved, the cash will be delivered to your doorstep.
How quickly can I get a doorstep loan?
Once your application is approved, our goal is to deliver your cash loan directly to your doorstep within a few days. However, this timeline can vary based on individual circumstances. Factors such as the speed of the approval process, the time it takes to arrange a home visit, and local logistical considerations can all impact how quickly the funds are delivered. Our team strives to provide a fast and efficient service, ensuring you have the funds when you need them.
What are the interest rates on doorstep loans?
Interest rates on doorstep loans can be higher than other types of personal loans, reflecting the high level of personal service and the convenience of having a representative come to your home. Additionally, doorstep loans are often used by individuals who may not have access to lower-interest borrowing options, such as those with poor credit. The exact interest rate will depend on several factors, including the amount borrowed, the term of the loan, and your individual circumstances. It’s important to note that the cost of the loan, including both the amount borrowed and the interest charged, will be discussed and agreed upon before you accept the loan.
How do repayments work with a doorstep loan?
Repayments for a doorstep loan are typically made on a weekly basis, making the repayments smaller and more manageable. A local representative will come to your home each week at a pre-agreed time to collect your payment. This allows for consistent, face-to-face communication, and gives you the opportunity to discuss any concerns or changes in your financial situation. It also eliminates the need for a bank account for repayment of the loan.
Can I get a doorstep loan with bad credit?
Yes, it is possible to obtain a doorstep loan even with a poor credit history. We understand that financial difficulties can affect anyone at any time, and a credit history doesn’t always fully reflect an individual’s ability to repay a loan. While we do consider credit history in our decision-making process, we also take into account other factors such as your current income and expenses, your employment status, and your personal circumstances.
What happens if I can't make a repayment?
If you’re facing difficulties and cannot make a repayment, it’s crucial to get in touch with us as soon as possible. We understand that financial circumstances can change quickly and unexpectedly. Our team is committed to treating customers fairly and will work with you to understand your situation and find a mutually agreeable solution. This could involve rearranging your payment schedule, allowing a temporary break in payments, or reducing the amount of your payments for a short period. The sooner we’re aware of any difficulties, the better we’ll be able to help.
Can I pay off my doorstep loan early?
Yes, you can typically repay your doorstep loan early if your circumstances allow. Paying off your loan early can potentially reduce the amount of interest you pay. If you’re considering this option, please get in touch with your local representative who can provide more information on early repayment, including any potential fees or charges, and help you decide if it’s the right option for you.
