Secured Personal Loans Are Best Shopped For Online

Mar 22, 2008
When looking for secured personal loans, there is no better place to start your search than online. If you go with a specialist website, they can search with the whole of the marketplace. This means they can get quotes on your behalf from some of the top UK lenders.

Secured personal loans can be taken out for any reason and often come with a lower rate of interest than an unsecured. As you will be putting up your home against the amount you are borrowing, it is essential you are able to keep up the repayments. If you cannot keep up with the repayments then you could stand to lose the roof over your head if you were to get behind on the loan. You have to consider this when you are considering how long to take out the loan. Always remember that if taking the borrowing over several years your circumstances can change. However, you would still have to make the repayments each month.

Along with being security against defaulting on the loan, your home also determines how much you are able to borrow. The value of your home is deducted from what is left outstanding on the mortgage and this is called the spare equity. The spare equity will be the total amount you are allowed to borrow with the majority of lenders. However, if you have a perfect credit score some lenders will allow you to borrow up to 100% of this amount, though this could change due to the credit crunch.

The interest rates for secured personal loans will vary from lender to lender. One of the biggest factors that will have a bearing on the interest rate is your credit rating. If you have a great credit score then you will have access to the best rates. However, those who have a poor credit rating or who have been turned down for other loans can take advantage of a secured loan. A specialist website will be able to get you the best rates based on your particular circumstances. A secured loan can also be one way of building up a bad credit rating. This is providing of course that you repay the borrowing on time.

When taking the borrowing out over a long period even the slightest fraction can make a huge difference to the total amount you have to repay. Interest rates will also depend on the amount that you need to borrow. They will also depend on how long you want to take the loan over, and your ability to repay the borrowing back.

Secured personal loans can come with hidden fees. However, all quotes that the specialist gives will come with the key facts attached. This is excellent when it comes to making a comparison and makes choosing a loan that much easier. Comparing loans can be hard without the help of a specialist. Some give interest rate quotes that are based on weekly terms rather than monthly and it can be easy to make this mistake when comparing. Quotes that come from the specialist are usually based on the same criteria.
