The implications of non-payment of your loan could include adverse details being included within your credit report. This could adversely affect future attempts at securing credit or finance, in addition to further charges potentially being added by the lender. Where you miss a payment entirely, you will often incur a charge/fee that will be added on to the total amount that you owe. Upon a missed payment, lenders will often try to contact you by telephone or letter in order to recover the funds and they may be able to arrange a new re-payment date with you. If you are struggling, or think there is a possibility that you will not be able to meet repayments, Payday Loans for People on Benefits strongly recommends that you contact the lender in the first instance.
