Eligibility for a loan

To be accepted for a loan, you’ll need to meet a certain set of criteria whatever lender you choose. In this guides section, we’ve created articles that deep dive into the concept of eligibility and what you need to check before you apply to borrow money.

Remember, if you choose Sunny and apply for an initial decision this won’t affect your credit rating. This is because we perform something called a soft search, which means we take a look at your credit report and confirm whether you are likely to be accepted for a loan or not but we don’t leave a mark on there. This means there is a reduced chance of your credit rating being impacted – which is great news for everyone!
