Problems With Bad Credit? Then Consider Secured Loans With Bad Credit

Apr 3, 2008
If your credit rating is anything less than perfect then you can expect to pay more when it comes to borrowing. That is even if you are able to get a loan at all. All lenders will look at your credit score when you apply for a loan. If your credit score is particularly low, then you could struggle when it comes to getting approved. If you fall into this category then consider secured loans with bad credit.

There are lenders who specialise in offering loans to those who are turned down elsewhere. By going with a specialist website and allowing them to search on your behalf you can get a loan and although the interest rates will be higher, they will be the best for your circumstances. Secured loans can even help you to recover your credit rating, providing the repayments are kept up with.

While they are excellent for those with bad credit, any homeowner can take out a secured loan. Secured Loans are not available to tenants of those that do not have their own property. A secured loan usually allows you to borrow more than you would be able to do with an unsecured loan. It also gives you the luxury of being able to spread the repayments over a longer period of time. However the longer you take the loan over the more you will pay in interest. In addition to this, the longer your home will be at potential risk if you fall behind in repayments. This is one of the downsides to taking out secured loans. Your home is used as security by the lender on the amount you are borrowing in case you should default on the loan and it also sets the amount that you are able to borrow.

Usually the lender would allow you to borrow up to 100% of the spare equity in your home. The spare equity is decided by how much is left over after the amount left outstanding on the mortgage is taken from the value of your home. In some cases, lenders will go up to as much as 125% of this but you have to show your ability to be able to repay. In recent months, this has become extremely rare, the worldwide "credit crunch" has meant that Banks and Building Societies have tightened up their lending and most now will only lend around 80 - 90%.

Secured loans with bad credit that are found with the specialist website should come with the key facts of the loan attached and this makes them much easier to compare. The key facts are where you can find all the valuable information regarding the loan. It will tell you the APR of the loan, how much interest the loan will accumulate over the time you have chosen to take it out and also if there are any additional fees attached to the loan. One very common form of fee that comes attached to a loan is an early settlement fee.
