If you feel as though payday is a long way off and you’ve got unexpected or emergency payments to make, you could consider applying for a short-term 1000 pound loan. A short-term loan is just that, short-term. It’s usually paid back between 3 and 36 months, and it’s specifically designed for use in emergency situations only.

Before applying for a 1000 pound loan, you should approach family and friends to see if they have the cash you need, failing that, consider selling unwanted or unused items around your house to make up the cash you need.

With that being said, in certain situations a 1000 loan may be the best choice to tide you through. If you’ve exhausted your options and find yourself under financial strain but confident you’ll be able to meet your repayments in the future, then applying for a 1000 pound loan with ThisLender could be a good solution.

Am I eligible to borrow £1000?

  • You’re over 18
  • You’re a UK resident with a permanent address
  • You’re employed and have a regular income
  • Have a UK bank account with a debit card
  • Your wages are paid into your UK bank account

Do I need a £1000 loan?

Even if you’re eligible, it’s a good idea to go through a mental checklist of whether a 1000 loan is right for you. There are certain factors you should consider before deciding to borrow. A 1000 pound loan might be the right choice for you if:

  • You need money immediately, and have considered all other options available (such as your savings, borrowing from family and friends etc.)
  • You are not able to access funds from conventional lenders. You might have already tried to raise finance from a traditional lending outlet and been denied, in which case a 1000 online loan could be a good alternative.
  • You are certain that you will be able to begin to pay the money check come your next paycheck. Remember, this loan should only be used to tide you through short periods of time, and you should be ready to start making repayments as soon as possible.
  • You only require up to £1000 in funding. With short-term 1000 loans, £1000 is the maximum amount of money you can borrow. However, if you’re looking to borrow more than this, we can help to arrange funding up to £5000.

Can I get a £1000 loan with no credit checks?

No, it is not possible to get a £1000 loan without having a credit check. All of our UK direct lenders require a credit check as standardthat’s what makes them safe and trustworthy lenders! But, as we said above, just because you’ve got bad credit, doesn’t mean you won’t get accepted for a 1000 pound loan. Credit checks are crucial, they help lenders make the decision of whether to lend to you or not.

Remember: ThisLender will not perform a credit check; lenders will complete a soft search during the application process. If you accept a lender’s loan offer, they will perform a hard credit search.

Do I have to repay the £1000 loan on my next payday?

Not necessarily. The majority of lender repayment terms and conditions might ask you to repay your 1000 loan on your next payday if you can afford to, or one week after you’ve received your loan.

But some lenders will allow you to repay your loan over a period of time, usually between 3 and 36 months. The installments would be paid regularly on a monthly basis until you have paid back the loan amount plus interest in full. Read your lender’s repayment terms and conditions carefully so you understand when you need to repay the loan.

Remember, you need to make sure there is enough money in your bank account ready for the repayments to be taken. Before taking out a 1000 pound loan, or any loan for that matter, you should be certain that this will be the case.
