Same Day Guarantor Loans in the UK
Guarantor loans are also another type of unsecured credit which can be provided on the same day upon your application. This lending option operates in the way that the second person involved (a guarantor) is there to secure a loan for the person wanting to borrow.
As long as the second person meets all the requirements they will be able to act as the guarantor. Guarantor loans provide an option for individuals that are struggling to gain financial support off their own accord. The lender is reassured with the strength of the guarantors financial circumstances, meaning if the borrower can’t repay the loan the guarantor steps in.
If the guarantor ticks all the boxes (in the lenders eyes) you could quite easily obtain the loan on the same day.

2. What’s the criteria for a fast guarantor loan?
Some of our providers might take more time with their decision but most can normally deliver a pretty fast decision for guarantor loans. The information below is based on the majority of lenders we work with:
- Employed, Self-employed or retired based on proof of income.
- If the borrower lives in England or Wales, the guarantor must also reside in England or Wales.
- If the borrower lives in Scotland, the guarantor must also reside in Scotland.
- The guarantor must have a good or reasonable credit history.
- Must be aged between 18 and 75.
3. Try other loan options first
If you can, it’s always worth trying to obtain a loan personally rather than using a guarantor. Our lenders welcome all types of credit ratings for payday loans and personal loans. Check if you qualify via our application form before you look at a guarantor loan.
We are a friendly bunch and so are our lenders. If you have any queries or questions don’t hesitate to get in touch. Contact us directly through the ‘contact us’ page or contact your lender via the information provided in the loan offer.
How “quick” are quick guarantor loans?
Most of our lenders offer quick guarantor loans with same day cash deposits. However, be mindful that it can completely depend on the lender you choose to loan the money with.
For example, the lender might need to act upon further checks of your loan eligibility.
So, who can be your guarantor?
Different lenders will have different requirements, though by law, the guarantor must be:
Above the age of 18 Financially independent from the borrower, or otherwise not financially linked to the applicant Able to prove a good credit score, with a complete credit history
In some cases, the guarantor must prove that they are making above a certain amount each month, by showing a history of bank statements. Other situations may involve a guarantor showing a set amount of savings to show that there is financial availability and willingness to clear any overdue balance.
Guarantor loans are still a form of unsecured lending, meaning that the lender can’t secure the balance against something the applicant already owns.
The interest rate on a guarantor loan will usually be lower than that of a bad credit loan, and will nearly always be lower than a payday loan. Your interest rate will be variable, based on your credit history along with your guarantor’s credit history. For example, if you and your guarantor both have a poor credit score, then you may be offered higher interest rates.
As a guarantor loan is still considered a higher risk than an individual personal loan, you may be paying a higher interest rate than if you were to borrow in your name alone. However, as a guarantor reduces the lending risk risk over a bad credit loan, it is normal to be offered a more optimal interest rate.
4. How do the repayments work for instant guarantor loans?
The repayment structure for an instant guarantor loan is slightly different than other forms of borrowing.
When you apply, your repayment schedule will be worked out similarly to other loans. Your monthly earnings, borrowed amount and the length of the borrowing period will all be taken into consideration to work out an agreeable monthly repayment.
The difference is that the guarantor signs to ensure that all payments will be met. Whilst they will not have to make any direct payments, if the primary applicant defaults on any payment, the guarantor will be expected to cover the due amount.
If your financial situation changes, and you suddenly can’t repay what was initially agreed, it then becomes the responsibility of the guarantor to make any overdue payments.
The guarantor will only ever be liable to pay a balance when the main applicant defaults; these terms must be agreed before the loan is accepted.
