Get a Loan With a Bad Credit History

Can I still get a loan with a bad credit history?

Yes. There are specialist companies which provide competitive deals for individuals such as yourself who have a bad credit status for a number of reasons, such as defaulting on payments, going into mortgage arrears of having CCJs.

Will getting a bad credit loan damage my credit status even more?

No. In fact, if you manage your loan effectively and show good financial savvy by keeping on top of repayments and not defaulting, then taking out a bad credit loan can improve your credit status by proving to credit rating agencies that you can manage your money better. This will mean that you have better rates available to you in the future.
