Short term loans are granted for a period of few weeks only. This time period is generally not fixed and varies as per the needs and requirements of the borrowers. These loans are granted for a very small amount. This amount may go from 100 pounds to 1500 pounds. It mainly depends upon the needs and the financial creditability of the borrower.
- Presently such loans are offered only to the permanent residents of UK;
- You should have attained an age of 18 years before applying for loans;
- You should also have a valid bank account in any bank of UK;
- You should also be employed somewhere earning a regular income each month.
These loans are of small amount which are offered for a very short span of time, so mostly these are offered without any collateral. It gives them an edge over other loans. But these also have a demerit. In most of the cases, these are offered at higher rate of interest. It is because of the risk the lender is bearing in approving the loan without any security. But seeing all other features of these loans we may say that these are very beneficial to take a person out of credit crises.
