When searching for a short term loan, the quest for some quick emergency funds can be particularly challenging if you happen to have a poor credit history (which could be down to a wide variety of reasons), or have no credit history at all. In the following article we will outline why this doesn’t automatically exclude you from still accessing a quick loan with buffa.

Can you get a Quick Loan with no Credit?

The short answer with buffa is, yes, we could still approve you for a loan even if you have little to no previous credit history. Instead of ruling certain people out for being applicable to receive a loan from us based on a lack of credit score, we instead look over each application on a case-by-case basis, considering each applicant as a unique person, with unique circumstances.

At buffa, we will of course never provide a loan to someone who we believe can’t afford to keep up with the loan repayments - but we will take into account every individual factor in the application process, meaning that you may still be able to take out a quick loan with us without any prior credit history.

How to get a quick loan with no credit

To apply for a quick loan with no credit history from buffa, there are a few simple steps you’ll need to follow:

  • Firstly, you’ll need to make sure you meet the following pre-application eligibility criteria;
  • You must be 18 years of age or over
  • You must live in the UK
  • You must have a regular income
  • You must have access to a UK bank account in your own name, with a debit card associated with the account
  • You must have a valid email address and mobile telephone number
  • Decide how much you want to borrow and how long you’ll need to pay it back and use our loan calculator to discover how much you will need to pay back each month, as well as the total repayable amount
  • Fill in our online application form – you will need all of your personal details as well as bank account details and employment information
  • We then provide you with an instant initial indicative decision whether you have been accepted or not, or if we need to conduct some more checks about your application
  • If you decide to then proceed with your application, we will then perform a full credit history check against the details you have provided to us.
  • If your application is fully accepted and approved, your loan will be paid in full directly into your bank account, and this will usually happen within 5-minutes of loan approval
  • You then repay your loan as per the terms and repayment schedule agreed to during the application process, or of course you can choose to make early repayments or loan overpayments

If you can meet all of those pre-eligibility criteria, the next steps are follows:
