The loan eligibility checker on allthelenders is a quick application form that is linked to a list of specialist lenders, when you apply with us we send your application to a panel of lenders and if a lender is able to offer you a loan, you will be presented with a table of offers from the lenders that could accept your application. There is no obligation to accept a loan offer at all and it won’t harm your credit report.

The great thing about using our eligibility checker is that we search a lot of lenders instantly meaning you don’t have to make multiple applications with different lenders, saving you considerable time and effort.

If we are unable to find you a lender, we may present you with offers from other specially selected partners, details of all of the companies we work with can be found in our Privacy Policy.

No, we do not run full credit checks.  Lenders will perform a soft search which gives a snapshot of your financial history.  They then use this information, coupled with the information you give us in your application, to make a lending decision. We have a panel of more than 40 different lenders so you have a much greater chance of finding a lender with us. This whole process usually takes around 2 minutes.

We ask you to complete the short form above and then, coupled with a soft search of your credit report, we search the market for a lender that will be able to offer you a loan.  Consider it a preview as to what would decision you would get if you applied to lenders directly, but this way it doesn’t harm your credit score and you access to a much wider panel of lenders meaning you have a much greater chance of getting accepted.

Absolutely.  We work with a panel of more than 40 different lenders and the vast majority of these specialise in working with customers that have some bad credit history.  You have nothing to lose by using the test and you may get the loan offer that you need.

Not necessarily, no – it is extremely unlikely.  We work with a large panel of more than 40 lenders and whilst some of these are guarantor lenders, the majority are not and offer unsecured personal loans.

This is dependent on your personal circumstances and your credit history.  Whilst many of our lenders work specifically with customers that have bad credit, if you have multiple defaults and CCJ’s you may find your options are more limited.  We would recommend trying the test to see which lenders would accept you.

If we are unable to match you with a direct lender, we may present you with, or send you to, one our preferred partners that may have more suitable products for your financial circumstances. You can find a list of our partners in our Privacy Policy.

A soft search of your credit report is not visible to any lender or credit provider and will not affect your chances of getting credit.  It is important to remember, lenders will perform a full credit check before making a final offer of a loan and this will be recorded on your credit report, however, this will only happen when you give your explicit consent to a lender. We do not run credit checks.

This service is bought to you by us directly using our 10 years of experience in helping customers find loans. All of the companies we work with are authorised by the FCA and are responsible lenders and brokers. Your data is fully encrypted and is safe with us and we do not sell your data to any third parties. We are registered with the ICO (ZA101793).

During the check we will securely send your details to all of our partners and as soon as we get a response, we’ll send you to the company’s website where you will be able to review your loan offer or find out more information about the company/product that has accepted you.

The whole process usually takes around 2 minutes.

There are 2 main reasons that using our loan eligibility test is a good idea.  Firstly, you can see which lenders will accept you without making multiple applications and all without affecting your credit score, so you’ll get the best deal possible.

Secondly, some lenders we work with are only available through our loan eligibility service and do not take applications directly, so you would never have even know they existed and they may just give you a better deal than anyone else.

No, we are a Credit Broker and are able to present your leads to our large panel of specialist lenders all from one application, saving you time. Our services are provided free of charge, we may receive a commission from a lender if you are successful in finding a loan – this commission will never affect the price of your loan. We are fully authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority.
