Why is a Short-Term Loan Better Than a Long-Term Loan?

22nd Dec 2017, 11:12am

Short-term loans and long-term loans each have their specific uses. Long-term loans are, of course, necessary for the bigger purchases in life, such as property. However, when it comes to addressing more immediate financial problems, short-term loans may be the best option. Whether you need an extra bit of cash to cover unexpected bills, money for a special occasion or you’re simply filling the gap between paydays, short-term cash loans are the best bet. You can pay them back in a few weeks so you don’t have to stress over potential impacts to your life, along with a host of other benefits.

What is a Payday Loan?

22nd Dec 2017, 10:37am

A payday loan is designed to provide you with quick money over a short period of time. In most cases, they are used as a means to fund unexpected costs that arise before your payday can cover them, such as medical expenses or car repairs. Unlike other loans, payday loans are repaid over days or weeks, rather than years, in order to be used as a stop gap until your wages arrive. The amount you can borrow varies depending on the lender but is usually between $100 and $1000.

Understanding Interest on Your Loan

22nd Nov 2017, 7:39pm

Interest represents the cost of borrowing money and it begins to accumulate as soon as you receive your loan proceeds. The amount of interest you have to pay depends on the amount of money borrowed, the rate at which interest is charged and the length of time taken to repay the loan. At Chequers Finance, we endeavour to make the repayment process as simple and straightforward as possible so you know how much you will owe before you take out the loan.

Is There a Lot of Paperwork for Cash Loans?

21st Nov 2017, 7:29pm

As a borrower, you can face many obstacles when trying to apply for a personal loan. Many lenders overwhelm you with paperwork and terms & conditions just to get the money you need. Others will try and sell you "short-term loans" that end up taking much longer to pay off because of inflated interest rates. Cash loans are the solution to your financial obstacles. These convenient loans give you fast access to funds up to $1000. They are designed to be fast, short-term solutions and you can get cash in as little as five minutes (if you are an existing customer)! While applying for a cash loan is much more streamlined, there is still some information you will need to provide. Here is an overview of the paperwork that might be involved.
