First time ever hearing or dealing with Australian Lending Centre and I can say, they’re probably the best staff I’ve ever had the pleasure of speaking with, especially my consultant Pat. He wasn’t just friendly but patient, understanding and very honest and that helped me a lot. Not sugar coating anything but allowing me to be honest and he was also honest with his responses clarifying reasons why and also honest with the outcome that was available to me. I initially wanted to get a consolidation debt loan but wasn’t able to due to the criteria of the lenders that I wasn’t eligible for however he offered me another solution that might be available to me, and this really made me happy. That there isn’t just one solution and that I wasn’t going to be turned away just like I had been by various lenders. I am very happy with Pat’s customer service, he was genuine and didn’t judge me with my credit history or circumstances which people in the financial industry do do sometimes but he didn’t. That means a lot.

Bad credit loans give you a 2nd chance

Many Australians have dishonoured repayments, defaults, court judgements, and credit enquiries on their credit file. These negative listings can damage credit history and hinder loan approval.

Forgetting about a parking fine, defaulting on energy bills, making late repayments on personal loans, or having overwhelming credit card debt can stain your credit history.

Banks may reject you, adding more negative marks to your credit report. It becomes a damaging cycle.

Our team of specialists create tailored bad credit loan plans to improve your finances without impacting your credit file.

Have you heard "no" because of poor credit?

What are the consequences of having bad credit?

  • You are likely to face loan rejection.
  • Interest rates, fees and loan terms will be less favourable.
  • It is likely that you will need to secure your loan against an asset.
  • You may face difficulty renting a home or property.
  • Utilities and insurance can be difficult to get without facing higher rates.
  • You are unlikely to be approved for a new phone contract.
  • Employers might use your credit score as a hiring decision metric.

Why is your credit score low?

Making Late Repayments

Consistently missing payment deadlines can lower your credit rating, and if a payment remains overdue for an extended period, it could result in a default being recorded on your credit report.

Multiple Credit Enquiries

Whenever you apply for a loan and undergo a hard credit check, it adds a credit enquiry to your credit report. Multiple enquiries may indicate that you're seeking credit beyond your financial capacity.

Poor Credit Utilisation Ratio

Your Credit Utilisation Ratio reflects the proportion of credit you've utilised compared to what's available. If you've spent $2,000 out of a $10,000 credit limit, the calculation is: $2,000 / $10,000 = 0.20 (20%). Maintaining a credit utilisation ratio below 30% can positively impact your credit score.

How can I fix my credit score?

Being responsible with debt repayments and not making too many loan applications within a short space of time can rebuild a low credit score.

Meanwhile, defaults, court judgments, and credit enquiries can be a little harder to shake. These negative listings can take years to leave your credit report, but credit repair can significantly speed this process up.

Credit Repair

Credit repair offers a swift and efficient solution for cleaning a poor credit file. Defaults, court judgements and credit enquiries can be disputed and potentially removed on your behalf in as little as 30 days.

Stop making credit enquiries

Wait a minimum of 6 months after undergoing a hard credit check before seeking another loan. Frequent credit enquiries may imply that you're borrowing beyond your financial capacity.

Make Repayments Responsibly​

Consistently making debt repayments on schedule and keeping your credit utilisation ratio below 30% will gradually enhance your credit score over time.

Bad Credit Loans FAQ's

Here are some common things that bad credit loans are used for:

  • Consolidating debt
  • Car purchases
  • Emergency expenses
  • Home improvements
  • Education
  • Business needs
  • Travel
  • Legal fees

The best thing about Bad credit loans is that they’re incredibly flexible. Anyone can apply and you can decide the loan’s purpose and terms.

If you have no credit history, building your credit score can seem daunting, but it’s entirely achievable with these steps:

  1. Consider applying for an entry-level credit card: This may sound counterproductive, but it’s quite the opposite. Applying for one of the more basic credit cards with a low credit limit will increase your chances of approval if you have no credit history. Then make purchases on your credit card and promptly pay off the balance each month using your debit card. You’ll be seen as a trustworthy borrower, and your credit score will improve.
  2. Become an Authorised User: Ask a family member or friend with good credit to add you as an authorised user on their credit card account. Assuming they are a responsible lender, your credit report will be positively impacted, boosting your credit score.
  3. Apply for a Credit Builder Loan: Credit builder loans are designed for individuals seeking to improve or build their credit. These loans work by borrowing a small amount of money, which is held in a savings account or certificate of deposit until the loan is paid off.
  4. Use Alternative Data: Some lenders consider alternative data, such as utility payments, rent payments, or cell phone bills, to assess creditworthiness.
  5. Monitor Your Credit Report: Regularly check your credit report for errors or inaccuracies that could negatively impact your score. Dispute any discrepancies and ensure all information is up to date.
  6. Practice Responsible Financial Habits: Pay all bills on time, keep credit card balances low, and avoid applying for multiple loans within a short period. Responsible financial behavior is key to building and maintaining a positive credit history.

By following these steps consistently, you can gradually build your credit score and establish a solid credit history over time.

Yes, you can obtain car finance with bad credit. Here are some options:

  1. Specialised Lenders: Some lenders (such as Australian Lending Centre) cater to poor credit scores, offering more flexible terms for bad credit car loans.
  2. Cosigner Assistance: A cosigner with good credit can boost your chances of approval.
  3. In-House Financing: Dealerships may offer direct financing with more lenient credit requirements.
  4. Credit Score Improvement: Work on improving your credit before applying to benefit from better terms and rates.

You may need to pay more in interest than someone with a pristine credit report, but there are options to get you behind the wheel of the car you want.

If you stick to your payment schedule, you won’t damage your credit report any further.

Because a bad credit loan means a higher risk to the lender, it is common to find that the fees and charges for this type of loan may be higher than for someone with a healthier credit history. This, of course, varies individually and will depend upon how much you want to borrow, the length of the loan, the repayment schedule and whether or not the loan is secured against equity.

The Australian Lending Centre offers a very broad range of financial products including:

Debt Management: If you are overwhelmed with debt then you could take advantage of a debt relief plan where all of your unsecured debt is managed on your behalf. Some of the key benefits of debt management are reduced repayments, protection from creditors and in many cases, frozen interest.

Bad Credit Debt Consolidation: A debt consolidation loan with bad credit is a great place to start if you struggle to repay multiple debts on time each month. You’ll only have one repayment each month, one set of fees and one interest rate, which is generally lower than credit card interest rates, so you’ll save time, money and stress.

No Credit Check Loans: No credit check loans allow individuals to apply for finance without the worry of a credit enquiry on their report. You can still be approved for a loan based on other criteria, such as your income.

Credit Repair: Negative listings can often be removed through credit repair. If they were incorrectly placed on your credit file in the first place, or if the default has since been paid, it can often be negotiated for them to be removed.

A bad credit loan can positively impact your life by providing you with a helping hand when you’ve been rejected elsewhere.

It allows individuals with poor credit to consolidate debt or handle emergency expenses, presenting a valuable opportunity for financial stability. A bad credit loan also offers the chance to rebuild your credit score through consistent, timely repayments.

Being given a second chance to regain control of your finances can be a great weight off your shoulders, providing you with a safety net to keep you away from further financial trouble.

Secured personal loans with bad credit are loans that are backed by collateral, such as a vehicle or property, to mitigate the risk for the lender.

Because the loan is secured, individuals with bad credit may have an easier time qualifying and may receive more favourable terms, such as lower interest rates or higher borrowing limits, compared to unsecured loans. However, if the borrower fails to repay the loan according to the terms, the lender has the right to seize the collateral to recoup their losses.

Unsecured bad credit personal loans are loans not backed by collateral, relying solely on the borrower’s creditworthiness.

Due to the increased risk for lenders, they often come with higher interest rates and stricter eligibility requirements. Despite this, they provide borrowers with access to funds for various purposes without requiring collateral. However, borrowers should carefully review terms to ensure affordability before applying.

A common form of unsecured loan is a credit card.

Yes, although the approval speed depends on your circumstances, including the complexity of your financial situation, whether you complete your application and provide all necessary documents properly and the loan amount that you’ve requested.

It takes less than 5 minutes to complete an online application with the Australian Lending Centre. Your application could be assessed immediately, with a same-day bad credit loan approval if you qualify.

Bank loan requirements are strict for a number of reasons:

  • To manage risks by ensuring borrowers can repay loans.
  • Minimum lending standards are set for regulation to protect consumers and stabilise the banking sector.
  • To protect depositors’ funds and maintain the quality of the loan portfolio, attracting investors and keeping the bank healthy.
  • The strict requirements also help banks assess borrowers’ creditworthiness thoroughly, considering factors like credit history and income stability.

Most of the restrictions on bank lending are imposed by the government.

The Australian Prudential Regulating Authority (APRA) and the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC) require banks to keep records about how they assess applications. This means the lender must ask more questions, which can slow down or stall your application. Because of this, bank applications take a lot longer than they used to to get approved.

When applying for a home loan, banks may also consider your living expenses, using the Household Expenditure Method (HEM) to assess them.

Due to historically low interest rates in Australia, APRA has put restrictions in place to ensure that people won’t find themselves in hot water if those interest rates go up. The debt-to-income ratio, prevents people from borrowing too much more than their income (each lender has a different maximum cap, but most will not let you borrow more than 9x what you earn).

The banks also assess your retirement age. For example, a bank will not approve a 25-year loan to a person over 60. This change came about from the guidelines of the National Consumer Credit Protection Act of 2009, which was managed by ASIC.

Therefore, if you fall outside of the bank’s very strict criteria, your loan is unlikely to be approved.

Due to these strict regulations, banks can’t rely on common sense when assessing applications, unlike some private lenders. 

For this reason, many people now find themselves unable to obtain loans from banks, which is why companies like the Australian Lending Centre offer alternative finance options, such as bad credit loans.

Bad credit loans offer several benefits, including:

  1. Individuals with poor credit scores can still access financing when needed, providing an opportunity to address financial challenges or unexpected expenses.
  2. Responsible repayment of a bad credit loan can help rebuild credit history over time. Timely payments demonstrate improved financial management, potentially leading to better credit scores.
  3. Bad credit loans can simplify finances. Debts can be consolidated into a single loan with more manageable payments and potentially lower interest rates.
  4. These loans are versatile and can be used for various purposes, such as covering emergency expenses, making necessary purchases, or investing in education or home improvements.
  5. Fast application and approval processes allow borrowers to access funds promptly in urgent situations.
  6. Our solutions are flexible and can be tailored to suit each individual circumstance. We understand that every situation is different.

At the Australian Lending Centre, we treat every customer as an individual. Every bad credit loan applicant has a different story and credit history, so they require a different solution to their financial situation.

We have to be responsible in our processes, and so we cannot guarantee approval to everyone. What we can say, however, is that we aim to find a solution to all our customers’ needs based on their individual circumstances.

Applying for a bad credit loan with the Australian Lending Centre takes only a few minutes. It is obligation-free and won’t impact your credit history. Get in touch for a complimentary consultation with one of our trained consultants to see how we can help you improve your financial situation today.
