This will depend on your circumstances, but assuming you have an excellent credit score then you should qualify for a UK market leading loan rate.

## Loan Repayment Example

Let’s work through the example of a loan of £1,500 taken out over 5 years (60 months) with an annual APR of 12.5%. We’ll determine the monthly repayments, including both capital and interest.

### Loan Details

**Loan amount:**£1,500**Annual Percentage Rate (APR):**12.5%**Loan term:**5 years (60 months)

### Steps to Calculate Monthly Repayments

**Convert the annual interest rate to a monthly interest rate:**\( r = \frac{12.5\%}{12} = \frac{0.125}{12} \approx 0.01042 \)

**Determine the number of monthly payments:**\( n = 5 \times 12 = 60 \)

**Plug the values into the formula:**\( M = P \frac{r (1 + r)^n}{(1 + r)^n – 1} \)

Where:

- \( M \) is the monthly repayment
- \( P \) is the loan principal (initial amount)
- \( r \) is the monthly interest rate (annual rate divided by 12)
- \( n \) is the number of payments (loan term in months)

**Calculate step-by-step:**- \( (1 + r)^n = (1 + 0.01042)^{60} \approx 1.81940 \)
- \( r (1 + r)^n = 0.01042 \times 1.81940 \approx 0.01895 \)
- \( (1 + r)^n – 1 = 1.81940 – 1 = 0.81940 \)
- \( M = 1500 \times \frac{0.01895}{0.81940} \approx 1500 \times 0.02311 \approx 34.67 \)

### Monthly Repayment

The monthly repayment is approximately **£34.67**.

### Summary

If you take out a loan of £1,500 over 5 years with an APR of 12.5%, your monthly repayment would be approximately **£34.67**. This amount includes both the repayment of the loan principal and the interest. Over the 5-year period, you will make a total of 60 payments.

Calculations are based on the interest rate being fixed over the term, and no repayments are missed. Please note that many lenders will apply their best loan rates for loans between £5,000 and £25,000 and for lower amounts you will pay a higher rate of interest.

Calculations are based on a fixed interest rate for a £1500 loan over a 5 year term; no repayments are missed.

## How to get a £1500 personal loan

A personal loan tends to be more straightforward than other forms of finance. As the loan is unsecured, it does not require you to put an asset (such as your home) down as security against the loan. Most banks and other lenders offer personal loans, and you can typically expect to borrow between £1,000 and £25,000 over a relatively short period (compared to a secured loan).

Personal loans can be taken out for various reasons, and lenders tend to specialise in packages depending on whether you wish to use the loan for home improvements, car purchases, debt consolidation, etc.

## How to get a £1,500 Guarantor loan

You may also be able to borrow this amount as a guarantor loan if you feel your credit score is not good enough to get a personal loan. With this type of loan, someone with a better credit history agrees to be a guarantor in the loan, meaning they share responsibility for it. If you failed to repay, the lender would ask the guarantor to make it.

Guarantor loans tend to be more expensive than personal loans overall. Despite the added security of having a guarantor, the lender still faces added risk.

## Considerations before taking out a £1500 loan

**Before you take out a loan, you should make sure it really is the best option for you. Consider alternatives such as if you have any savings. It might be beneficial to use these instead, as the interest you pay on a loan may be higher than any interest you earn from your savings.**

**However, depending on your personal circumstances, some options are likely to be more suitable for your needs than others. Before committing to a loan, we strongly recommend comparing the market for your loan options.**
