Is It Possible to Get Bank Loans Without a Bank Account?

In recent years, many people have found themselves working longer hours at the office and in their homes as a result of social distancing measures implemented to slow down the spread of COVID-19. This has left them running out of money, forcing them to seek loans from financial institutions such as banks that offer title loans. As with virtually all other forms of loans, loans for titles are time-sensitive. There are certain rules regarding how long you must wait before obtaining the loan and the interest rate charged per annum. However, lenders can provide this much-needed service without an applicant having an account with a bank.

Here are some tips on how to apply for loans for titles without a bank account:

1) Determine Your Credit Score

1st, you need to determine your credit income score. The two best ways of doing so are through a personal credit report or by checking on your credit reports with independent agencies like Equifax, TransUnion and Experian. They are available online, and you do not have to pay any fees once you register with them. You can get free credit scores from several online firms. Then, visit one of these sites, fill in your details, and click “view report”. Once you are redirected to the desired website, enter your basic information, including birthdate, address, country of citizenship and phone number. Depending upon which firm you use, it may ask for additional documentation such as proof of ownership of real estate or guarantors. If the company you are using asks for this additional documentation, you may be asked to submit copies of your last year's tax returns. After filling out all this information, it will generate a report that indicates your credit score.

2) Check On Your Property Titles

A home's primary mortgage is usually secured against the property. Therefore, if there are no properties recorded in your name, they cannot be used as collateral in securing a loan for the title. Typically, the law requires a homeowner to have at least 50% equity in their home, however this requirement does not apply to single family renters. Before making the application, check on every property you own in case the title is pending in court and the lender decides to take over your home.

If the owner of the house wants to sell, they could sell it off to recover the debt. These sales transactions often involve either selling all their possessions to cover the cash flow gap or paying just enough money to cover the closing costs. While there is no specific minimum amount that must be paid in order to obtain a title loan, it is common practice to make sure you receive the full amount listed when the sale closes.

3) Make Sure All Documents Are Up to Date

It is important to ensure your documents are up to date. Most lenders require at least three months worth of new documents, depending upon the type of financing. For example, if you have purchased a house that is owned by a trustee but has been abandoned, the lender may require new papers for the deed and foreclosure filing. Sometimes, the creditor also needs a copy of the new landlord agreement which outlines your rent and security deposit.

4) Ask About Lenders' Terms and Conditions

Most lenders will allow applicants to borrow up to 40% of the value of their home's equity. The maximum sum that you can borrow for home purchase is $325,000.

For a 30-year fixed term loan, the sum that you can borrow ranges from 25-30%. Borrowing more than 30% of the home’s value allows for refinancing the debt by making lump sums payments. The lender will then collect monthly payments along with the original principal.

5) Use Extra Funds From Retirement Plans

Lenders allow borrowers to access funds after retirement. Usually, most mortgages are made to help older homeowners with their retirement savings. When you retire, you are allowed to withdraw funds from a qualified retirement plan. An approved plan should allow one to add up to 5% of what you withdrew annually before taxes. Some plans allow borrowing while contributing to the Plan's Roth 401(k). To be eligible for a plan, you must meet the following requirements:

  • You can save and invest up to $20,000 per calendar year;
  • You have been earning a salary (or equivalent income) for at least five years;
  • You are at least 62 years old;
  • You are able to show proof of stable employment;
  • You are not under a guardianship or conservatorship;
  • You do not have significant debts and no criminal history.

6) Be Prepared to Meet Interest Payments

In cases where a borrower fails to repay a loan, the lender can file a lawsuit against the borrower and collect the defaulted amount over a specified period of time. The same applies even in cases where the borrower was unable to complete the loan due to circumstances beyond his control. The law places penalties of up to 20% on the lender in cases where a borrower fails to settle the liability within the agreed terms.

7) Apply With Great Care

Although it may seem simple, it is important to understand the steps involved when seeking a home title loan. The process involves submitting numerous forms and files to various states. Applicants can only be approved if they are not denied based on incorrect information. Moreover, each state has its own regulations regarding approval. For instance, you cannot request a loan for $100,000 because New York is different from California in regard to eligibility. Similarly, some states only lend to those who fit in certain criteria. Any mistakes or failure to meet the set standards can lead to rejection and disqualification from applying.
