An affordability assessment is the process which determines if you can afford to repay the loan repayments over the term of the loan.
Affordability assessments calculate whether you can afford to make repayments over the full length of a loan by examining your incomings and outgoings and taking into consideration if the loan is affordable for you.
Payments and Charges
You will not be charged interest if you miss or make a late payment. However missing or making a late payment could be recorded on your credit file which could affect you getting credit in the future.
