Is there a charge if I repay early?

Hopefully No but it’s dependent on the lender and how aware your broker is of the market. All lenders have a minimum term which is usually one or three months, although we have seen a minority at six. No matter how early you repay the loan you will always pay the minimum term.

However some lenders, although we don’t deal with these, will take interest for the duration of the loan even if it is repaid early. Not very nice.

For example you take out a nine-month loan and repay after three, the lender will still take nine months interest.
