Services

Loans range from £5,000 - £100,000 and can be used for items in many categories including: debt consolidation, home improvements, new vehicles or a holiday. Interest rates are both fixed and variable depending on the loan option. Loans.co.uk also offers loans with no payments for five months, accelerated loans, and fixed rates for up to five years.

Loans can be arranged with up to five months of no payments initially although interest is charged from the opening of the loan, despite payments actually made. Loans can be protected through a repayment protection cover, and some loans offer a cash-back version of the plan which refunds protection payments if the loan is completed and the policy was not used at any time during the loan's life.

Clients and Customers

The company arranges loans for almost any purpose, mortgages and re-mortgages for thousands of people every year throughout the entire UK.
