What checks will be carried out?
Lenders are likely to check the following as a minimum:
- Your identity (using bank and address checks);
- Your credit file (using a credit reference agency);
- Other fraud and money laundering checks.
Often lenders and credit reference agencies collect publicly available information which can then be compared with the details you have provided. This is why it is so important for you to be absolutely honest when you apply.

Credit Checks and Potential impact to credit score
All responsible lenders should conduct a credit check prior to approving a loan, particularly if the customer has not had a loan with that lender before. These checks not only protect lenders but they also protect you as they should ensure that you don't take out credit products which you are not able to afford.
Lenders may also validate your information through credit reference agencies. If you have difficulties in repaying your loan, lenders may notify credit reference agencies. If you default on your payday loan, lenders will inform credit reference agencies, which could make it more difficult and expensive for you to obtain credit in the future.
Non-Payment and Financial Implications
If you fail to repay your loan, and do not contact your lender and offer to set up an alternative repayment arrangement, they may charge default fees of up to £15, and they may notify a third party debt collection agencies. If you are unable to make your repayment in full and on time, contact your lender. They should work with you to help you resolve any problems you are having.
