Obviously the requirement is that you have a partner or spouse. However, joint loans are also available to friends and family too.

Your partner, friend or family friend just needs to be happy to apply for a loan with you. To make this decision it is probably best to know what is involved for both parties.

What is involved in joint loans for couples

Joint loans for couples is a loan that is offered to more than one borrower. Joint loans can be an option when applying for secured loans, unsecured loans, or bank accounts.

Higher acceptance rates

With a joint loan you have a higher chance of being accepted than a sole loan as the lender acknowledges it as a more affordable option for most people.

The reason for higher acceptance rates for joint loans for couples are because:

  • When the lender assesses your eligibility of being accepted for a loan the application will be based on both applicant’s credit scores and so even if you both do not have perfect credit scores together they are stronger.
  • When passing the affordability test for the loan the lender will look at both applicant’s incomes making the joint income higher and more affordable for the loan.

During the application of joint loans for couples you will both be signing a credit agreement. If you are both unable to keep up with your repayments, then as a result both your credit scores will be effected.

Even if the joint loan is between a wife and husband or a boyfriend and girlfriend, regardless of if you split up you are both responsible for paying off the total loan balance and not just half of it. If the other person decides not to pay up, then the joint borrower will be responsible to pay it off in full.
