Loan Guarantee

A loan guarantee is a legal promise made by a third party (guarantor) to cover a borrower’s debt or other types of liability in case of the borrower’s default. Loans guaranteed by a third party are called guaranteed loans.

The guarantee can be limited or unlimited. An unlimited guarantee implies that the guarantor will cover the full amount of liability, while in a limited guarantee; the guarantor will cover only a portion of the liability.

Advantages of Loan Guarantee

There is a higher chance of successful application

Having a guarantor is added security for the lender, so there is a stronger chance your application will be accepted.

You could borrow more

Having the backing of a guarantor gives the lender extra peace of mind, so they are more likely to lend you a larger amount.

It is good for those with poor or little or no credit history

A guarantor loan allows those with poor credit history to add security to their repayments and so are a great option for those with bad credit. It is also commonly used for those with little or no credit history, such as young adults buying their first home.

It could boost your credit rating

Whenever you manage credit well, it should reflect in your credit rating. Making guarantor loan repayments in full and on time could go some way to repairing a poor credit history. Many lenders also offer you the option of making overpayments or repaying your loan early without additional charges, which gives you the option of reducing your loan term and total repayment cost.
