Secured Loans Have To Shopped Around For To Get The Cheapest

Apr 3, 2008
The rates of interest for secured loans vary so just as you would look for the best deal on any product you purchase, you should also look around for a low rate of interest. The easiest way of doing this is to go online with a specialist website and allow them to search with the whole of the marketplace. They will be able to gather quotes from some of the UKs top lenders and you can then compare them for the cheapest and best deal for your circumstances.

Secured finance is ideal for those individuals who have a less than perfect credit score. Those who have been turned down for loans in the past can be approved for a secured loan. The downside to the secured loan is that you are asked to put up something of substantial value against the borrowing. This, in the majority of cases, would be your home. Therefore it is essential that you are able to maintain the repayments of the loan throughout the term you take it over.

A secured loan can even help to repair a bad credit score providing the individual repays on time. A secured loan will normally come with a lower rate of interest than an unsecured loan does. Even so the rate will vary above what the Bank of England base rate is. Another advantage of taking out a secured loan is that you are able to borrow a larger sum of money. You will also be able to spread the cost of the repayment over longer terms that you would with an unsecured product. However the downside is of course that the longer you take out the loan the more interest it would accumulate. Therefore you would have to compromise between lower monthly repayments and taking the loan over the shortest time possible.

Secured finance allows you to borrow for almost any purpose. You should bear in mind and consider whether the risk of putting your home up as security against the loan is worth the reason. One of the most useful reasons for taking out secured finance is to consolidate your existing debts. A secured consolidation loan would allow you to put all your existing loan or credit cards together and pay them off, and then simply repay the one loan back to one creditor. This can be an excellent way of getting out of debt over a certain period of time. Other possibilities for the loan include making home improvements, buying a brand new top of the range car or paying for essential repairs.

The amount you are able to borrow with secured loans will depend on the amount of spare equity you have in your home. The spare equity will be decided by how much you have left outstanding on your mortgage. This is deducted from the value of your home. The majority of lenders would offer up to 100% of this amount.

However some lenders may offer you up to 125% if you can prove you have the ability to repay and you have a good credit rating to back you up.
