Want Some Interesting Ideas About Finding Unsecured Loan Deals?

Apr 27, 2008
Here are a few elementary tips concerning secured loan applications:

A potential borrower can nowadays register online or go directly to the lender web site and print off the application forms. However, one should compare the unsecured loan rate(s) being offered. One can now search online for these, and compare and contrast.

NOTE: unsecured loan comparison sites may not be comparing like with like. A common mistake is to compare on interest rate only; lenders can factor in fees and pre-payment penalties in the small print which means a unsecured loan rate of 6.5% from one company is worth a lot less than the same from another, more generous company.

You should also take into consideration thing like the number of months for repayment; it's best to take the pain and pay the unsecured loan off as soon as you can. It's a real drag to pay your utility bills and loan remittance at the beginning of a month, and then realise you have very little left to pay for life's other essentials!

It's important to understand just what you're getting into with your agreement before you sign up, including its terms and conditions, because a loan may become too expensive for you after adding annual percentage rates, prepayment penalties, closing costs, insurance or other fees.

Figure out your options. If you shop around for different options, you'll find that there are loads of them. All of them have their own pros and cons. Those that offer lower interest have longer financial product terms, while those with shorter payment terms attract higher interest rates!

A good idea is to check where you will be able to save some money in your life generally, which you can use to pay bills that you incur in your day-to-day living.

Unsecured loan amounts may be bigger or smaller depending on your needs and financial circumstances, such as getting together the money to purchase a new car, or to decorate your home, or for an emergency situation. Finding the package that offers the amount you need, at a competitive rate of interest and over the term that you require can be tricky.

If you have debt problems there are chaps that will help you manage them without having to take on another unsecured loan. They charge a fee and help negotiate lower rates with your creditors and manage your repayments better. Usually (hopefully!) their methods will save you lolly to start paying down the principal on your outstanding debt balances.

Some of these geezers are worth their salt, and can save you more than they charge. However, some are not legit and take your payments and keep them for a month or more before they pass them on to your creditors. They collect interest on the cash-at-bank in the meantime, causing you to garner late fees and possibly debt collections. They can actually cost you money and worsen your financial situation.

There are various fees associated with any unsecured loan. The fee can be charged on the amount that the client (you) has applied for and not the amount that one has been authorised to get. These charges are generally not fixed but variable and change with the business policies of the lending company.

Some ways of improving your credit-worthiness are: by living in the same place for two years or more, not having had previous occupiers there with bad credit, paying off your bills on time, by having the same bank account for at least two years, by actually having (a goodly sum of) money in your bank account, rather than an overdraft, by being registered as a voter, by owning a credit card and paying it off on time, and by getting errors removed from your credit report.
