Progressive Money is an unsecured lender set up by Evolution Money who have a long history operating in the homeowner (secured) loan market. Progressive Money lend to those people in the adverse to near prime loan market. They differ from many unsecured loan lenders in that they will only consider loans if the applicant is a homeowner.
As with all credit provision you will be required to show that loan repayments are affordable, so please be prepared to provide evidence of income and expenditure.
When you take out a loan Progressive will charge you a 10% fee (that is factored into the APR% quoted) and a £295 service fee that is not. Although the loan is unsecured they do point out that if you fail to keep up your loan repayments a charge could be put on your property and so any outstanding debt would have to be repaid when the house was sold.
It is too early for us to give any clear indication about the merits of this lender. It was a shock when we saw the 10% fee and the £295 servicing charge (the latter not included in the APR%). However, it is the total amount you repay that is ultimately the determining factor. It is disappointing that they will only consider homeowners and we hope that they are not too keen to apply legal charges in cases of missed payments. But if you have credit issues and do happen to be a homeowner then it may be worth requesting a loan quote.
