Your Application

How quickly will I get a decision?

In two minutes we’ll let you know whether you can take our loan and we’ll also give you your real rate. That way, you’ll know exactly how much your LiveLend loan will cost.

How much can I borrow?

We offer online personal loans from £1,000 to £12,000. We make responsible lending decisions because a loan needs to be good for you and us. We want to make sure you can afford to repay the loan.

At LiveLend we'll consider your personal situation, including your income and your financial commitments, before we make a lending decision, and we’ll pick up the phone for a chat if we have any questions.

Can I apply for a Reward Loan?

The Reward Loan is available exclusively through popular comparison websites such as ClearScore, Moneysupermarket.com and Experian. 

To check your eligibility with no impact on your credit score, simply head over to your preferred financial services comparison provider. There you’ll see all of the loans from across the market that you’re eligible for and that are best suited to your personal needs. 

Our loans are 25.7% APR Representative.

What do I need to include in my monthly expenses?

You should include your essential expenses and financial commitments.

For example: 

  • Your share of the mortgage or rent
  • Any existing loan or credit card repayments
  • Utility bills such as gas, electricity, water, council tax
  • Any monthly commitments such as mobile phone, broadband, sky, insurance
  • Food costs

The rest of the application will take just another three minutes and we’ll transfer your funds immediately so your money is in your account in under four hours. 

Our loans are 25.7% APR Representative.

What proof of identity will I need to use?

We don’t require any documentation from you online.  As part of your soft search we will verify your identity and if we have any further questions or cannot match your information online, one of our expert team will call you directly.

What is a soft search?

As LiveLend loans are only available through popular comparison websites, such as ClearScore , MoneySuperMarket.com and Experian , you’ll see us pop up as a potential option to consider following a soft search (also known as a quotation search)  of your credit history. Soft searches are completed by lenders like LiveLend to confirm your eligibility for a product. They’re different from credit application searches (also known as hard searches), which happen when you actually apply for a product. Too many credit application searches in a short space of time can damage your credit score.

Soft searches take the guesswork out of applying for credit and protect your score. 

What do you mean by no credit footprint?

At LiveLend we only use soft searches, also known as quotation searches, to work out whether you’re approved for our loans. Soft searches are different from credit application searches, which happen when you actually apply for a product. Too many credit application searches in a short space of time can damage your credit score.

A soft search, on the other hand, will let you know whether you’re eligible for the loan before you apply. That means we’re taking the guesswork out of applying for credit and protecting your score. 

You can access LiveLend loans through popular comparison websites, such as ClearScore , MoneySuperMarket.com and Experian ​​​​​​​.

What personal details will you ask for?

We know that you don’t want to spend all day filling in forms. To get your quote we will only ask for:

  • Your personal details, (name, address, date of birth, email address and phone number)
  • Your address history and residential status
  • Your employment status
  • Your income and expenditure, including essential expenses and financial commitments

You can get your quote by using our loan calculator and clicking 'Get my quote'

What is an APR?

APR stands for the Annual Percentage Rate. This is basically what you'll pay on top of the money you borrow. This cost will already be included within your monthly repayment and your total cost of borrowing. At LiveLend, we don't charge any fees on top of the APR.
