To be eligible for a personal loan with RateSetter, you need to:
APR stands for annual percentage rate, and gives you a more accurate idea of how much you’re being charged when you borrow money. It takes into account the interest on the loan and other charges, like arrangement fees.
If you took out a loan of £10,000 over five years at a fixed interest rate of 2.3% per year (4.9% APR representative), your monthly repayment would be £187.94 and your total repayment amount would be £11,276.40. This includes a fee of £638. The majority of our customers receive the advertised APR or lower. The maximum APR you could be offered is 29.9%.
Loans are subject to status and affordability, and the rate and fee you pay will depend on your credit profile. Before entering into a loan agreement, make sure you read the terms and conditions carefully.
You can borrow from £1,000 up to £25,000 for between 1 and 5 years.
