Where to Apply for a High Risk Loan
Most high risk lenders are private companies who do not fall under the of traditional lending institutions. We encourage you to read the terms and conditions with any loan offer and make sure you understand what you are signing up for. Most lenders will complete a soft pull on your credit score and if your credit score is below their established credit risk, the lender will not proceed with the loan application.
High Risk Bad Credit Loan Options
We recommend that you apply for a maximum of $1,000 because this is the maximum amount most high risk loan lenders as willing to provided as an unsecured loan if your credit score is near or below 580.
Bad credit Loan options ranging from $500 to $5,000 and any credit score can apply.
bad credit Personal Loan
Bad credit is a reference to a short credit history or a loan/credit card repayment that damaged your credit score. An unsecured high risk personal loan is a great solution if your credit score and credit history meet the criteria of the lender. We have listed personal loan providers with credit scores starting at 620. This lender group offers loans ranging from $1,000 to $100,000. When banks consider a 620 credit score a high risk, online lenders are happy to receive your loan application.
Home Equity Loan or Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC)
A home equity loan or home equity line of credit (HELOC) provides an excellent way to consolidate debt even with bad credit. When you have good credit and the bank looks to provide a home equity loan or HELOC, they will normally finance the property up to 80-90% of the loan to value. The loan to value is the difference between the size of the mortgage and what you will get if you sold the property. With bad or fair credit, the loan to value may drop to as low as 60 to 70% and the interest rates may be higher. This will mean that the amount they are willing to lend will be lower.

I ended up with a personal loan for the $16,000 at 5.97% after a family member co-signing the loan. I did take the advice of America Loan Service and signed up with Novita to get my credit score back on track. Ass soon as I have improved my credit score and I can qualify on my own, I am getting rid of this co-signer.
