What are extremely bad credit loans?
An extremely bad credit loan is basically just a personal loan for someone with a subpar credit rating. In most cases, online lenders conduct credit score checks whilst assessing loan applications. The Australian Code of Responsible Lending requires all online lenders to ensure applicants are not being lent cash they can not repay – this is why they conduct a preliminary credit check. The good news is, some online lenders won’t base their entire assessment on the result of a credit score check. At Safrock, we do our best to match extremely bad credit loan applicants with open-minded lenders.

We look for a lender

Sign your agreement
Your new lender will send over an agreement for you to review and sign. The Safrock team strongly encourage all borrowers to read through their contracts carefully and make themselves aware of the full terms and conditions. If you’ve got questions we urge you to get in touch with your individual lender before signing your contract.
Get your cash
Once your lender receives a signed copy of your agreement the cash will be transferred straight into your account. Some lenders are now able to use instant banking. That means you could have the cash in your account and ready to use in just 60 seconds*. It is important to remember, however, that not all lenders have access to instant transfers. If this is the case, your cash will be transferred in the next round of banking.

Will my lender call my boss?
Most lenders will conduct an employment check when you apply for a personal loan for extremely bad credit. There is no need to worry though, this is usually a routine part of the assessment process. Your lender will always conduct themselves professionally. None of your personal information will ever be disclosed to your employer – including the reason why you are applying for a loan. If you’ve got questions regarding the employment check process Safrock encourages you to get in touch with your employer.
Why do I need to provide online banking information to my lender?
Your lender might ask you to provide your online banking details so they can access read-only copies of your bank statements. Bank statements allow lenders to take a look at your spending habits, income and existing financial commitments to determine whether an extremely bad credit loan is right for you. Worried about the security of your information? There is no need to be. Aussie lenders are required to use the latest in safe banking technology to make sure your information is always encrypted – that means no one will be able to see your information or passwords.
Does Safrock guarantee approval?
No. Safrock does not guarantee approval for any person who submits an application. Safrock is a lender finder, that means we can not speak on behalf of a potential lender and, therefore, can not guarantee approval. The good news is, having your application assessed is completely cost-free. Our team will always do their best to match you with a compatible lender if possible. So, if you’re wondering whether or not you will be approved for a personal loan for poor credit, we recommend you submit an application.

Can I get a payday loan?
If you’ve been searching for ‘payday loans for extremely bad credit’ we are unable to assist you. Payday loans are now illegal in Australia. Consumers can, however, apply for a SACC with Safrock. What is a SACC? A SACC is a Small Amount Credit Contract up to the value of $2,000. These small short term loans are not traditionally the same as a payday loan, however, function in a similar way.
Can I get a loan on Centrelink?
At Safrock we do accept applications from consumers receiving Centrelink benefits. Our team can not guarantee approval as we are a lender finder, but we will do our best to match you with a compatible online lender. Potential lenders will usually need to assess what percentage of an applicants income is drawn from Centrelink to determine whether they will be able to make the repayments on a personal loan. Responsible lenders will always do their best to ensure borrowers will not be in debt as a result of a loan.
Australian lenders are governed by the Code of Responsible Lending that safeguards consumers from predatory lenders. Responsible lenders must:
- Make reasonable inquiries about the consumer’s financial situation, as well as their requirements and objectives;
- Take reasonable steps to verify the consumer’s financial situation;
- Conduct a preliminary assessment about whether the credit contract is ‘not unsuitable’ for the consumer (based on the inquiries and information obtained in the first two steps).
At Safrock, we endeavour to match applicants with responsible lenders. It is important to remember, however, that it is the responsibility of the consumer to ensure the loan contract they are agreeing to is right for them. Safrock encourages borrowers to do their research. It is important to get in touch with your lender if you are unsure about the terms and conditions of your loan agreement.
At Safrock, we understand that our clients are the lifeblood of our business. We do not exist without you. That’s why our team does their best to provide the very best customer service possible.

Bad credit doesn’t have to stand in your way forever.
