    My daughter needs to get a personal loan of $15000 over 5 years to repay some debt after a divorce. She is a single mum of 2 on a pension and works part time 25 hours per week. She owns a 1 year old car worth $35000 that she can use to secure the loan but I was wondering if I could go guarantor for her if her earnings do not qualify her to cover the loan.

      Hi,

      IMB do not currently accept applications where a personal loan guarantor is required. However, they do accept applications from casual employees as long as your daughter has been in her role for at least 12 months.

      You can also review some other options on this page and this page.

      Hope this helps,

      Elizabeth

    Hi, i am looking to buy a motorcycle in a private sale which is less than 2 years old. Firstly is it possible to get a new car loan for this or are they specifically for cars? Secondly whether i get a new car lon or a secured personal loan is the money transferred straight to the person or sale or can i have it put into my own account so i can pay with a bank cheque?
    Thank you

      Hi Dan,

      Both new and used bikes up to six years old can be financed with the IMB Secured Personal Loan, but the car loan is specifically for cars.

      In terms of paying out your loan, IMB can pay the funds directly to the seller or you can pick up an IMB cheque in-branch.

      Hope this helps,

      Elizabeth

    Is my Superannuation considered security if I am past the age of maturation?

    • finder Customer Care
      ElizabethAugust 31, 2016Staff

      Hi Carolyn,

      Unfortunately, secured personal loans must be secured with either a new or used vehicle (up to 6 years of age). Superannuation is generally not considered as security for most lenders, but you may find some alternative lenders willing to use it as security.

      Thanks,

      Elizabeth

    What would be monthly repayment of a loan of $40000?
    Are payments able to be direct debited on a fortnightly basis?

    • finder Customer Care
      ElizabethApril 12, 2016Staff

      Hi Toby,

      Monthly repayments depend on how long your repayment term is – this loan comes with repayment terms of between one and five years. You can use the personal loan repayment calculator on this page to work out your ongoing repayments. You’re only able to repay monthly.

      Thanks,

      Elizabeth
