How do I know if I have bad credit?

Your credit score is an important aspect of your borrowing capacity. Regardless of whether your score is good, average, or nonexistent, it will impact your life.

After all, not only does your credit score affect your ability to apply for personal loans, but it also impacts the decisions of landlords, future lenders and insurance providers.

If you have had trouble securing finance in the past, a poor credit score may have played a part. However, there are many other reasons why lenders cannot approve a loan product.

New Zealand consumers are eligible for a free copy of their credit report. You can order a copy of your report from one of the three following companies:

What affects my credit score?

Your credit file and score are simply reflections of you as a borrower. In other words, your credit score will either go up or down depending on how you handle your money.

To give you a better idea, we’ll explore in-depth what affects your credit score.

Improve your credit score:

  • Making repayments on time. This includes both loan repayments, as well as paying bills on time.
  • Pay your credit card off in full. Aim to pay your credit card off in full every month. This will have a positive impact on your credit file.
  • Limit applications for new credit. Lenders may check your credit score each time you apply for a loan. Repeated credit checks may have a negative effect on your credit score.
  • Get rid of unused credit cards and accounts. Having multiple sources of credit on your file may affect your credit score. As a result, consider closing any unused credit cards.

Negatively affects your credit score:

  • Missed payments. Keep in mind, this includes anything from personal loans to utility bills.
  • Credit defaults. Defaults include any payment over $125 that is overdue by 30 days or more, and where the credit provider has tried to recover the money.
  • Insolvency. There are three types of insolvency – debt repayment plan, no-asset procedure or bankruptcy.
  • Applying for too much credit. Making applications for multiple credit products in a short space of time.
  • Debt collections. If you owe money to a lender and they have transferred your debt onto a debt collector.
  • Credit transfers. Despite being convenient, shifting debt from one credit card to another can knock your credit score.


  • Credit history. Put simply, your credit history is a list of all of your loan transactions. This includes repayments, missed payments, defaults, bill payments, home loan payments, hire purchases and so on.
  • Report. A synopsis of your credit history. In addition, your credit report may also include a credit rating or score.
  • Credit score. A numerical representation of the information in your credit history. Generally scored out of 1,000, and credit score over 700 is considered good.
  • Credit check. The process of a lender or organisation requesting access to your credit history from a credit reporting bureau.

Which companies give quick loans bad credit NZ?

There are a myriad of lenders out there that can potentially offer bad credit quick loans. However, lenders may all vary wildly in what kind of bad credit applicant they can accept.

In saying this, there may be certain lenders that may be less likely to consider bad credit applicants. More specifically, it could prove difficult to secure approval with a traditional lender like a bank or credit union.

Monzi NZ’s lender-finder service may, on the other hand, be able to match consumers with alternative lender options.

Monzi NZ

How can Monzi NZ help with bad credit loans? Well, we think we know a few lenders that may be able to help.

In short, if you lodge an application on our website, our system will try and pair your application with one of our trusted lender partners. As a result, consumers only need to apply once with Monzi NZ and kick back while we do the rest.

Keep in mind, however, we cannot guarantee your application will be approved. After all, all applications are subject to assessment by the individual lender.

The table below outlines some of the loan products our network of lenders might be able to offer:

Show me how to apply

Lodging an application is super straightforward, and there are instructions at every step. However, we will show you how easy it is to apply. In fact, there may only be three easy steps between you and your new lender.

Step one

Begin by heading to our homepage and selecting the amount you’re thinking of applying for using the loan slider. Once you click apply now, you’re taken to the submission form.

Step two

The next step is to fill in the submission form. Simply follow the steps and provide all the information we need from you.

Step three

Once your application is with our system, we’ll try and match it with an available credit provider. We have a range of lenders within our network, so the best-suited one will be in contact if they are able to make an offer.

Keep in mind, all applications are subject to assessment and borrowers are not guaranteed approval.

Can you get a personal loan with a credit score of 550?

Yes, absolutely. Monzi NZ works with plenty of credit providers that can consider applicants with credit scores of 550.

Approval, however, always rests with the lender themselves.

Will I be approved for a $1,000 loan with bad credit?

As the lender finder, Monzi cannot provide an answer to this question. After all, we aren’t approving or declining loans; simply aiming to match consumers with potential lenders.

Each lender will have its own assessment criteria. Moreover, Monzi cannot speak to what criteria each lender will have for approval.

For example, a bad credit application may be approved by a certain lender. However, the identical application may be declined by a different lender.

Where can I borrow money ASAP?

If you need an instant loan, you will likely need to apply with an appropriate lender. Furthermore, while traditional lenders may take days to process your application, a short term lender from Monzi NZ’s network may be able to get you that cash ASAP.

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee you’ll receive your loan the same day you apply. We can, however, list a few things you should be aware of before applying for a loan.

  • Most lenders are unable to transfer loans over the weekend. Therefore aim to approve your loan contract during normal business hours.
  • If you approve your contract outside your lender’s normal business hours, your funds may not be transferred until the next business day.
  • Lenders may have to pause assessing your application if they need additional information from you. Therefore, aim to provide all the relevant information the first time you apply.

What are quick unsecured personal loans bad credit?

Unsecured loans are, as the name suggests, loans that are not secured by one of the borrower’s assets.

Attaching an asset as collateral against the loan acts as a guarantee that the borrower will repay their loan according to their contract. If a borrower fails to repay their loan, the lender is then able to repossess the asset and recoup some of their losses.

Unsecured loans pose more of a risk to credit providers. This is because they cannot repossess any asset if the borrower defaults on their loan. As a result, the rates and other fees may be higher.

And secured personal loans?

Secured personal loans do have an asset attached as security. As secured loans are less risky for credit providers, consumers will often find they have a higher chance of approval and potentially offered lower fees and rates.

Therefore, attaching an asset as collateral may improve the chances of approval for bad credit applicants.

Generally, lenders can accept a vehicle as security, such as a car, caravan, motorbike or boat. However, you must be the registered owner of said vehicle to use it as security.

How do repossessions work?

Credit providers may repossess your security if you fail to meet the obligations laid out in your contract. This is so lenders can sell the asset, and try and cover the losses they incurred on your defaulted loan.

There are, however, rules surrounding the repossession process, as outlined in the Credit Contracts and Consumer Finance Act (CCCFA). More specifically, consumers are also protected by New Zealand law.

For example, the repossession process can only start if:

  • The consumer’s credit contract gives the lender the right to repossess an item, and to enter into the premises.
  • You have defaulted on your loan, according to the terms of the contract, or breached the contract in some other way.
  • The lender is a registered financial service provider

During the repossession

If a lender enters your property in the event of repossession, there are strict laws on how they must conduct themselves. This includes dealing with you with a reasonable and ethical manner. More specifically, this includes:

  • Not causing any damage to your property when repossessing the asset.
  • Must provide safe and adequate storage.
  • Reasonably exercise their right to enter your property.

Quick loans bad credit NZ – after the repossession

If unfortunately, a consumer’s asset has been seized, there are still laws protecting the consumer after the repossession. In other words, the lender cannot just sell your item straight after the repossession.

Within 14 days of the repossession, lenders must give you a post-possession order. Moreover, the post-possession order says you have 15 days to either:

  • Settle the arrears, as well as any additional repossession costs, and continue with the loan.
  • Pay off all the money you owe.
  • Sell the asset at the value set in the notice.
  • Somebody else takes over paying the contract.

Quick cash loans for bad credit unemployed – is it possible?

Yes, potentially. However, it is at the discretion of the individual lenders.

Some credit providers may be able to consider your application if you are unemployed but still earning an income. For example, you may be unemployed but own an income-earning property, like a rental home or vehicle.

If lenders can see you are earning a regular and consistent income, they may consider you for approval. In saying this, credit providers may vary in their criteria for unemployed applicants. As such, Monzi NZ cannot guarantee you will be approved.

Can I get quick approval loans for bad credit?

If you’re stuck between a rock and a hard place, it’s only natural you want finance that moves fast. In other words, consumers value a lender that can assess their loan quickly, and get the money in their account pronto!

Depending on the variables listed below, you may receive your loan the same day you apply:

Quick payday loans bad credit NZ

If you just need a small amount of unsecured cash with an almost instant decision, you could apply with a payday lender. Generally, payday lenders have relatively open criteria and quick turnaround times. As such, they may be a great option for covering a small cash shortfall.

Monzi NZ may be able to match you with a trusted payday lender from within our network.

I want fast online loans with no credit check

We’ll be honest, we cannot guarantee you will be offered a no credit check loan. After all, credit checks may or may not be part of a lender’s assessment policies. In short, conducting a credit check is completely at the discretion of the individual lender.

Despite this, a poor credit record may not need to stand in your way. Even if the lender you’re paired with does conduct a credit check, you may still be considered for quick loans bad credit NZ.

This is because our lenders are understanding. In other words, lenders are fully aware a poor credit score does not paint the whole picture. So, if a string of bad loans or credit cards in the past has knocked your credit score, consider using Monzi NZ.

  • Your income and expenses.
  • Your banking history.

Is all my information safe?


Here at Monzi NZ, we don’t take security lightly; which is why we’ve teamed up with tech-security giants McAfee and Comodo.

As a result, all your personal information is kept safe, secure and encrypted. Moreover, once our system rips read-only copies of your bank statements, your login details are permanently deleted from our system.

Therefore, consumers can have peace of mind when using Monzi NZ.

Before signing your quick loans bad credit NZ contract

If you’re approved for a loan through one of our lenders, you’ll be sent a digital loan contract. However, it is very important that you read through your contract carefully before signing anything.

Specifically, check how much you have been offered. Sometimes, lenders may not be able to offer exactly what you applied for on our website, but they’ll do the best they can.

In addition, make sure you’re aware of all the additional fees and charges associated with your loan. Specifically, pay attention to any:

  • Establishment fees
  • Ongoing fees
  • Penalty fees

If you don’t understand anything in your contract, get in contact with your lender. They will be able to walk you through all aspects of your credit contract.

Finally, if you are unhappy with anything, you are under no obligation (financial or otherwise) to approve your contract.

Why was my quick loans bad credit NZ application denied?

Unfortunately, Monzi NZ cannot guarantee your application will be approved. After all, lenders first have to assess your application to decide whether or not to lend to you.

Furthermore, as each lender has different criteria we are unable to speak on their behalf. If you were declined with the lenders so far, unfortunately, it does mean you did not meet their criteria. Because Monzi cannot speak to the individual policies of lenders, we cannot ourselves tell you why your application was declined.

However, if you are able to get in contact with the individual lender who declined your application, they may be able to give you the reason why.

Finally, just because your application was declined today, does not mean you will be ineligible in the future. As a result, consider waiting until your circumstances have changed and reapplying.
