Loans – Frequently Asked Questions

I am a new member, when can I start borrowing?

New members are required to build up a record of savings before applying for a loan. Though each member’s circumstances are unique, it is recommended that members save regularly for approximately three months before borrowing. A first loan is usually for a maximum amount equal to that held in shares by the applicant. This allows members to build up a credit history for larger loans in the future.

How much am I entitled to borrow?

Every loan application is treated strictly on its own merits as each member’s circumstances are unique. It is advisable to have built up a regular savings pattern and a good credit history if applicable. It is Credit Union policy to only lend responsibly to members to prevent over indebtedness.

What documentation do you require before I apply for a loan?

The information/documentation required for a loan will depend on the size of the loan applied for. For all loan applications where the loan balance is €5,000 or more greater than the savings, we require the following documentation:

  • Photo ID: e.g. Driving licence, Passport
  • Proof of Income: Three most recent pay slips
  • Proof of Address: A recent utility bill (e.g. gas, electricity)
  • Bank Statements: The most recent statements going back three months

What is the interest rate on loans?

What is the ICB credit check?

Our Lady Crowned Credit Union is a member of the Irish credit Bureau (I.C.B.) which is the principle credit reference agency in Ireland. Click here for a detailed information leaflet on I.C.B credit checks in this Credit Union.

What does it mean if I am requested to guarantee a loan?

In the event of slow or non-repayment of a guaranteed loan by the borrower, the guarantor is responsible for full repayment of the loan, including interest and all associated charges.

Your guarantee extends to any pre-existing loan balance still outstanding, and lasts for as long as the guaranteed loan remains. You may be freezing some or all of your existing or future savings, and this may also limit your ability to borrow in the future.

It is recommended that any person who is asked to guarantee a loan should seek independent legal advice beforehand.
