      Hi Nao,

      Thanks for reaching out to finder.

      While we cannot surmise how Bankwest will assess your application, generally denied credit application listed on your credit file will be viewed by lenders as a red flag. You may refer to the eligibility criteria above and check if you meet them. I have also sent to your email Bankwest’s personal loan application checklist for your reference. Meanwhile, you may want to read our guide here to understand how credit enquiries impact your credit score.

      If you are to apply for another loan, it’s a good idea to give it some time before applying again. Make sure that you meet all the eligibility criteria and if ever you’re unsure, contact the lender to check if you’ll qualify.

      It will also help to have a clear picture of your current credit standing so you’ll know which credit products you’ll qualify for. You can do this by getting your free credit score and a copy of your credit record.

      As for your loan options, you can check this page for loan offers available to casual employees that you might qualify for as well.

      I hope this has helped. Feel free to message us again if you have any questions.

      Cheers,
      Liezl

    Hi,
    I am in need of a small loan 5-7k to purchase a vehicle. I am currently a stay at home mother with government benefits being my only source of income at this time. Prior to the last 2 years (before becoming a mother) my employment history was very strong with constant employment. My credit score is also good with ‘a good’ rating (above 600). Would I have any options in obtaining a loan for a necessity such as a car? I have no other debts/loans/credit cards.
    Regards.

      Hi Donna,

      Thanks for your question.

      Bankwest is able to use certain Centrelink payments as a form of income, but has guidelines around which payments they can and cannot consider. You may want to get in contact with Bankwest to discuss your eligibility before applying.

      I hope this has helped.

      Does Bankwest do credit history checks? Due to my unemployment status, I build up a bad credit rating, and would like to borrow $6000 from Bankwest for consolidation purposes. Is it possible, because I had been put down by previous institutions, and it reflects on my profile.

    • finder Customer Care
      ElizabethSeptember 14, 2015Staff

      Hi Peter,

      Thanks for your question.

      Bankwest will do a check on your credit history before approving you for a loan, however they may still approve you depending on what is on your credit file. You may want to get in contact with them to discuss your situation and your chances of being approved. If you find you’re not eligible for one of its loans, you can learn about bad credit debt consolidation on this page.

      I hope this has helped.

      Thanks,

      Elizabeth
