Scroll up now to get started on your application or keep reading to learn more about your options for finance with bad credit history.
So, what is bad credit? Well, when we talk about bad credit we’re effectively talking about a person’s poor credit history. Your credit history is derived in part from your credit rating, which is typically measured on a scale of 0 to 1200. This scale can vary slightly depending on the credit reporting agency. Yet, the higher your rating the better.
To determine your credit rating, these agencies will look at the information contained in your credit report. The report includes details such as:
In most cases, a score above 620 is considered to represent a good history of borrowing while anything below indicates the opposite. Creditors will look at low credit ratings as a sign of increased risk and subsequently reject applicants with bad scores. As a result, it’s always a good idea to check your rating before applying for a loan.
Fortunately, checking your credit rating is relatively easy here in Australia. There are a number of online providers that allow you to check your credit score for free, including:
Ultimately, results will vary between sites depending on which credit reporting agency they use – Experian, Equifax or Illion. So, it’s generally best to try a few to give yourself a better idea of what your credit situation is. For further information on credit ratings, you can always check out ASIC’s MoneySmart website for the latest.
Although poor credit ratings are generally a no-go zone for lenders, some do offer bad credit finance to applicants with low ratings. In these instances, they usually come in two forms – secured or unsecured. Unsecured bad credit loans allow borrowers to access bad credit finance without providing a form of security. Naturally, secured bad credit loans require the inverse of this, usually asking the borrower to provide an asset to secure the loan against. Either way, applicants will need to sign a binding loan contract before they receive their funds.
Nifty Loans is an online private lender that takes a fresh approach to bad credit. When we receive a loan application, we look at more than just your credit score. So, we may approve you for a loan based on other factors such as your employment.
Essentially, Nifty Loans can provide bad credit finance through our small personal loans of $300 to $10,000. These loans can be used for a variety of purposes, such as:
After you apply online, we will assess your situation and determine whether or not we can supply the funds you need. Our application and approval process is so simple, we may even provide you with an outcome in as little as 60 minutes (subject to a submission within AEST business hours)!
Basically, with Nifty you can apply for three different personal loan products. Divided into small, medium, and large – our personal loans each have specific requirements designed to meet the needs of their loan size. All have the potential to provide bad credit finance, depending on your application assessment results.
Here is a quick overview of each loan type and what they can offer to borrowers:
|Small Personal Loan||Unsecured personal loans between $300 to $2,000, repaid over a 6 to 12 month period.|
|Medium Personal Loan||Secured personal loans between $2,100 and $4,600, repaid over a 9 to 24 month period.|
|Large Personal Loan||Secured personal loans of $10,000, repaid over a 9 to 24 month period.|
When it comes to our loan products, we may require an asset to be used as collateral for the funds. As mentioned, Nifty’s small loans of $2,000 and below are unsecured. Yet, our medium and large loans are a little different. We require security for these loans and may accept a car, motorbike, boat or caravan as an acceptable asset. However, a vehicle can only be used if the applicant is the registered owner of the specific vehicle.
