Loans FAQs

How quickly can I get the money?

For most customers who have a Halifax bank account and are registered for Online Banking we can put the money into your account the instant you are approved.

For customers who don't use Online Banking or are applying for an additional loan online, funds can be transferred to a Halifax or Bank of Scotland account within 48 hours from when signed loan documents are received before 2pm. Documents received after 2pm could take up to 72 hours.

For customers that don't have a Halifax or Bank of Scotland bank account, funds can be transferred to another bank account within five days from receipt of signed loan documentation.

How quickly do I get the decision?

In most cases we offer instant decisions, although there may be occasions when we require further information before we can complete your application.

What does “Representative APR” mean?

The Representative Annual Percentage Rate (APR) is the rate that at least 51% of our customers get when applying for a loan on this web site. Actual rates may vary depending on personal circumstances and we'll let you know your personal loan rate during the application process.

Can I repay my loan early?

You can repay any amount off your loan at any time during the repayment period and we'll recalculate your balance and term.

Please note that while we don’t charge for settling your loan early for Clarity Loan customers, an early settlement adjustment may be made on our other loan products.
