Loan Application and Account Maintenance
Unlike other finance companies or banks we don’t have a flat rate for fees. Geneva fees are minimal charges to cover administration costs associated with your loan. As everybody’s loan is different, everybody’s fees are different too. We only charge you for services of ours you are using. All fees are worked out and included in the loan offer we provide you after your loan enquiry. This means there are no nasty surprises or hidden costs, we’re upfront with you from the beginning about the structure of our loans.
