As part of the lending process we will credit check to get an indication of your ability to repay a loan. Whilst credit scores are not the only the only factor we take into consideration they are carried out. Too many credit checks over a short timescale can adversely affect your credit rating. In addition, should you default on your loan we may make a reference to a credit reference agency which can make it both more expensive and harder to obtain credit in the future.
Skint.com offer loans through a number of lending companies who each determine their own penalties for non-payment. It is important to contact the lender directly as soon as you foresee any potential difficulties to discuss in advance. Defaulting on a loan can mean increased interest rates or charges on your loan amount. Failure to pay can also mean a negative impact on your credit rating and potentially a debt collection agency becoming involved in recovering the loan amount. Different lenders have different policies for collection of debt and it is therefore always important to read the terms and conditions of your individual loan with regard to default practices, and contact them if something should go wrong.
Under certain circumstances it is possible to extend the repayment period. This is dependent on your specific lender and personal circumstances and will increase the total repayment amount. It is important to contact the loan provider directly to discuss if this is an option for you.
Try not borrow more than you need, only borrow what you can afford to pay back on your next payday. That is the difference between Skint and other lenders, we understand that sometimes we all are a little short of cash and will lend to those who can prove they are able to pay it back by adhering to the simple criteria above. That is why we offer the best payday loans uk.

A payday loan is a short term unsecured (i.e You do not have to have a mortgage to act as a guarantee) loan which rely on a applicant being able to prove previous employment and/or employment records. This type of loan, which is growing in popularity, is also known by a great many other terms, such as cash advance, short term loan or payday advance etc. When arranging your loan you will agree a repayment schedule to suit your needs. Generally at skint.com we stick to a 31 day repayment term but you are free to repay at your next payday, as long as this falls within 31 days. Alternatively, we can offer you longer repayment terms but this will increase the amount that you repay. This trend of repayment is the same across all payday loan brokers. The longer you borrow, the more you repay.
Payday loans in the UK are an industry which is seeing massive growth. Between 2006-2009 the number of people using this type of loan increased by 400% adding up to a total lending amount of £1.2 billion. The average loan amount is £300.
Payday loans are an easy way to acquire necessary monies on a short term basis. Money can be borrowed to pay for items or services on the proviso that they are repaid within an agreed time period. This offers consumers additional financial liquidity, something we all need sometimes! You can receive a decision within minutes and payment within 24 hours. Due to the borrowing conditions being more lenient than other forms of loan, payday loans allow people who may not have credit cards or access to other forms of credit.
If used sensibly, payday loans may help to improve credit scores. Credit scores are based on 'behavioural predictions' so whether loans have been paid on time is a major factor in the decision making process of whether they will be granted in the future.
At Skint.com, we are not a lender, so the implications of non-payment will be determined by the specific lender you have a loan with. If you encounter difficulties, or expect to encounter difficulties, regarding payment of your loan contact the lender direct as soon as possible. Depending on the lender involved, non payment can result in increased interest charges or penalty charges and could impact your credit rating and future ability to borrow. Ultimately if you cannot pay your loan the lender may contact a debt agency to help retrieve some of the money borrowed.
