Am I eligible to borrow £5,000?
To be accepted for a £5,000 loan, there are specific criteria that need to be met. Given that the amount is quite large, the lender will generally require that you are in employment earning at least £1,000 per month. It will differ from lender to lender but is a good rule of thumb. In addition to the income, the lender will assess your ability to repay the loan, by asking a series of affordability questions as well as perform a soft credit search.

Can I borrow £5,000 to pay off other debts?
When you take out a personal loan, there are very few restrictions to what you can use the money for. Usually, lenders will only specify that the loan cannot be used for business purposes.
If you need to borrow £5,000 to pay off other debts, you should make sure that this is financially the right thing to do. If by paying off the other obligations, this reduces the amount of interest that you will be paying, or if it allows you to pay off your debts more quickly, this could be a sensible solution. Be mindful that spreading the repayments over a more extended period may increase the amount of interest that you pay in total.
