    Why dont the banks just offer a 3 tier system based on credit score. E.G

    Excellent credit rating gives the advertised rate. In this case 6.9%
    Good credit rating add 3%. In this case 9.9%
    Poor credit rating add a further 5%. in this case 14.9%

    This could apply to all loans above £5,000

    This would be a fair price for risk scenario for both borrower and lender and payments would be afforable for borrowers.

    Lenders could adverties the 3 tier system so that customers would know what rate they would get should they qualify for a loan.
  • You know what plumber some people on here would get slightly aroused if they though for one moment they could get a loan at 14.9%.

    I think you need to add another rating "abysmal credit rating add a further 15%", and they'd still form an orderly line.
