How to Get a Loan When You Have No Credit History Having no credit history and having poor credit  are not the same problem. However, both will cause similar issues if you are trying to secure a loan. Maybe you prefer to pay cash. Maybe you’re a young adult applying for credit for the first time, or you’ve just never needed to borrow any funds before. No matter your personal reason, having no credit can lead to some very frustrating problems. Bad credit can be fixed with time and effort, but having no established credit history can be a problem for anyone looking to take out a loan. It may seem like you are in the midst of an endless cycle: you are trying to establish credit, but no one will give you any credit because of your lack of history. So, how do you escape this no- win situation? It may seem like a long shot, but securing a loan with no credit history is far from impossible. You may not be able to borrow a significant amount at first. However a smaller loan may be within your reach, and you can build that up to a brighter future. Keep in mind that valuable items that you own can put up as collateral. It will be helpful in securing approval. Take a look at some of the tips below that will help you get organized and show you how to get a loan with no credit. Start Building A Credit History on Small Credit You may not be able to build credit off of big loans, but there are little things that can help. 1. Apply for a secured credit card and start using it right away. It doesn’t have to be for a large amount, only a few hundred dollars or less. By paying off the balance on time regularly you will start to build up a positive payment history. 2. Try applying at your bank for a small credit building personal loan. Most banks are willing to help out first-time borrowers with establishing some credit. The amount you are approved for may be small, but the history of your regular payments will be helpful down the road. 3. Your phone, cable or utility bills can help you show that you are a responsible customer that pays their bills on time. Keep your receipts for a few months back to show that you are paying your regular bills on time. Find a Co-Signer Although this may seem like an uncomfortable thing to ask, it’s one of the best ways to help secure your first loan. Lenders want to know that their loan is in safe hands and that if something happens that they will be able to get their money back. Talk to your parents, grandparents and friends about your situation and see if anyone is willing to back you for a loan. This is a serious commitment. You will be responsible for full payment of your loan or it could default to your co-signer. Gather Your Documentation You may not have any records that are specifically about loan repayment, but there are plenty of other types of paperwork that can help a lender make a decision about your application. 1. Gather all of your bank records for the past year, as well as your pay stubs to show your income. 2. Tax records, overdraft protection history, employment history and resume, and your utility bills should all be part of the paperwork that you collect for your application. 3. Include a letter of recommendation if you have one—it can never hurt. Consider What You May Have For Collateral The main factor that is considered by any lending institution in regards to a loan is their ability to recoup and draw interest on their investment. Banks and lenders want to take as little risk as possible when making loan decisions. When you have no established credit rating for them to analyze for risk, they may be more open to an approval if you had something to put up for collateral. Think about the things that you may own and consider laying down an item to help secure your loan. There are many things that you can consider to use as collateral for a loan: A vehicle - must be owned in full with nothing owing Land Boats or recreational vehicles Investment accounts Fine art or jewelry Conclusion Although setting up a credit history can be a challenge, there are ways to get through the small cracks in the system. Stay confident and try to be creative and open with lenders. Everyone has to start somewhere and once you have established a good credit history your choices will be unlimited.
