Most lenders make this decision based on whether or not you are a good risk – in other words you have a high likelihood of being able to pay the loan back in full and on time.

All lenders have a scoring system, whereby the information that they collect from you during the application process is scored against their criteria (this is different for every lender).

by Steve Lee / January 30th, 2018

  This is all you need to know about guarantor loans from the experts. Including what they are, how they work and how to land yourself a loan.   Back in the late 20th century, loans were given to individuals by banks based solely on trust.
