When can a £1,000 loan help?

A £1,000 loan can help in a variety of ways. If you’re a homeowner looking to make home improvements, you could:

  • Buy some furniture, carpets or soft furnishings.
  • Use it towards getting the decorators in to give your home a fresh coat of paint.
  • Update your home with a new dishwasher or washing machine.

You may want to pay off some debt and consolidate it into a single loan repayment or use it to cover off unexpected bills. Just remember that, by consolidating, you may extend the term of your debt and increase the total amount you repay.

 

Types of Loans

Unsecured personal loans (we offer access to these at Asda Money)
  • Usually a small, fixed rate loan for personal use
  • For amounts between £1,000 and £25,000
  • The amount you can borrow and the rate you see is based on things like your personal circumstances and credit score

Secured loans also known as homeowner loans (we don’t offer access to this type of loan)
  • Typically sums over £15,000 and repaid over longer periods of 5-30 years
  • What you can borrow and the interest rate offered depends on your credit history, your assets and personal circumstances

To borrow a secured loan, lenders need security in the form of an asset. This is usually your home. It’s important to note that your home can be repossessed if you don’t keep up your payments on any debt secured against it.

Guarantor loans (not offered with Asda Money)

A guarantor loan is often offered if you have bad credit. With a guarantor loan, the lender will ask your chosen friend or family member to guarantee the loan repayment if you can’t pay it. This could help you access the money you’re after if you’ve hit a few bumps in the road with your credit score.

How much will a £1,000 loan cost?

 

When you borrow £1,000 through a £1,000 loan, you will have to pay interest.

Smaller loans often have slightly higher interest rates. This is to cover the fixed costs lenders pay to obtain and manage the loan during repayment.

The interest is calculated at the start of the loan and accounts for the interest you will pay over the entire length of the loan. This is then added to your loan amount in line with the interest rate, or APR, set by the lender.

The higher the interest rate when you take out your loan, the higher the amount you will have to pay. If you select a longer period to pay off your loan, it will also cost you more in total.

 

£1,000 loans with bad credit

 

Is it possible to get a £1,000 loan with poor credit? Yes, it could be possible, but it’s important to be aware that you will likely pay a higher interest rate. You will also be limited in the number of lenders willing to lend to you.

When you apply for a £1,000 loan with bad credit, lenders will look at your current financial situation to understand whether you’re able to pay back the loan.

 

If you have bad credit and you borrow a £1,000 loan, it does have the potential to boost your credit score. By showing you can borrow responsibility by paying back your loan each month, you can improve your score.

 

Will a £1,000 loan affect my credit score?

 

One of the best things about checking your eligibility for a £1,000 loan with Asda Money is that it doesn’t affect your credit score. You can get access to a panel of trusted lenders which leaves only a soft credit footprint on your file that does not affect your credit rating.

If you decide to proceed with an offer from your search with us, the lender may complete a hard search once you accept your offer. This will show up on your credit file.
