Other reasons to borrow
These are only some of the reasons to borrow from us. You can borrow for a wide range of reasons from weddings to buying a boat – a loan from the Halifax could help you. However, there are a small number of reasons we cannot offer a loan for.
What can’t you get a loan for?
While you can use a Halifax personal loan to pay for most borrowing needs, there are some things you can’t get a loan for. These include:
- Speculative purchases, e.g. gambling, investments and share purchases
- Any illegal activity or purchases
- Business related purposes
- Purchase/Lease of land or property, either full or part purchase (including deposit)
- Timeshares/Holiday Clubs
These limits apply whether you want to borrow money for yourself, or to support someone else. For example, you can’t take out a loan and give it to someone as a deposit for a house.
