Instalment Loans Direct Lender
Instalment loans from direct lenders are short-term loans intended to cover unforeseen circumstances. A direct lender refers to a company who will actually lend you the money. You may also come across a loan ‘broker’. A ‘broker’ will help you to obtain a loan by using your application details and passing it across to multiple direct lenders. If a direct lender then accepts your application, you would be directed to their website to finalise the application process.
How much do they cost?
An instalment loan from a direct lender will vary in cost depending on from the lender. The maximum that can be charged for a loan in the short-term high-cost market is 0.8% per day per £100 borrowed. Simply put, that means for every £100 you borrow, you cannot be charged more than £24 over a 30 day period and you will never pay more than double what you borrow.
