It depends. While it is technically possible, it will depend largely on what type of loan you availed of. If you’re considering transferring your loan to someone else, there is also the issue of finding someone who will be willing to take it on. If you’ve luckily found someone who is more than capable and very willing to take on your loan, there is still the issue of whether or not the type of loan will allow it. Here’s a quick look at loans that do allow for transfers, and those that don’t:

Transferable and Non-Transferable Loans

Personal loans – these are non-transferable. Even if someone is willing to take on the repayment, no lending firm will allow you to transfer a personal loan to another person. This is because personal loans have been obtained through an assessment of your credit score, and you have no material collateral to back it up.

Car loans – car loans are transferable. If you can find someone willing to take on the loan for you, it is easy to create a document that secedes the loan to the individual you’ll be transferring it to. Once they take on the loan, you can discuss reimbursement terms for the money you’ve already doled out, in case the lending company doesn’t allow refunds.

Mortgage loans – mortgage loans are transferrable, but they will require a bit more paperwork and longer approval times than do car loans. Mortgage transfers are rare and very difficult to process or qualify for, so don’t get your hopes up if you do decide to transfer your mortgage to someone else.

Yes. You can get a loan even if you are 17 years old. However, you do have to meet certain requirements to qualify. These requirements will depend on the type of loan, as well as the lender.

Getting a Car or Personal Loan

A typical lender won't let a 17-year old take out a car loan or a personal loan. But there are some who do, granted that a parent or someone qualified (i.e. of legal age, has good credit) co-signs the loan. The co-signer will be liable for paying the loan in behalf of the 17-year old if they are unable to.
Some lending institutions allow up to 16-year old borrowers. Whether you are aged 16 or 17, it's also likely that on top of having an adult co-signee, you will be required to have a part-time job.

Getting a Student Loan

As a 17-year old, you have better chances obtaining a student loan. Although you still need an adult co-signer. Some lenders also require you to have good credit. You can use a personal or car loan to build your credit before attempting to apply for a private student loan.

Getting a Federal Student Loan

A federal student loan would be much difficult to acquire since you have to meet certain criteria. You must be a U.S. citizen and a high school graduate who is qualified to receive a college or career degree. You should also be enrolled or accepted to enroll under a qualified degree program, and have satisfactory academic performance.
Federal student loans are cheaper than private student loans due to their low interest rates.

When asking for a bigger loan amount or a loan when you have bad credit, the lender may require you to have a “guarantor” to cosign the loan. But what is a guarantor and how will it benefit your loan application?

What Is A Guarantor?

A guarantor is simply another person who will back up the loan in case you, the borrower, defaulted on it. His/her responsibility will only take place when you decided to stop repaying the loan and unlike a joint loan, he/she cannot take any part of the money and use it.

The main advantage of having a guarantor is that he/she can increase the chance of your loan application to be approved. If you can find a good guarantor, you can get the amount you need even if you have a bad credit remark or a low income.

In addition, having a guarantor is like having security against the loan. That being said, it’s less risky for the lender to lend you money, thus they can charge you with minimal interest rate compared to a loan without collateral or another person to cosign the loan. However, just like secured loans, you should be committed to repaying the loan or else, you might risk your relationship with the cosigner.

A loan guarantor can be your friend, colleague, or another family member; however, he/she should be able to meet the requirements set by the loan provider. Here are some of the basic criteria of a good guarantor:

  • Should be at least 18 or 21 years old and above

  • Should have a good or excellent credit remark

  • Should have a high, stable source of income

  • Should be a UK resident

  • Should have an active bank account under his/her name

  • Should have an active email address and contact number
