A Simple Guide To Loans

May 10, 2008
A loan has the ability to give a person what they need to start a business, go to college, buy a car, or even advance a payday check. The problems with loans, are that they can cost you excessive amounts of money, and most importantly, time. Whilst there are good companies and banks to loan money from, there seems to also be a lot of bad companies that will charge you an arm and a leg.

What to Look Out For

With loans, some are winners, but some can make you regret you ever got a loan, and can phase your future loan decisions. To avoid this ever happening to you there are a few things you should pay attention to.

Convience - The first thing you'll want to look around for, is how convenient the lender is to you. Some intentionally try to make the contract difficult to read, to cause more stress and maybe to hurry the deal. These lenders tend to be more of the "rotten apples" of the borrow world. Find the lender that makes you feel comfortable, and that gives you the time you'll need to pay off the loan.

Collateral - Also called Predatory Lending, sometimes he lender tries to ask for property in which they will hold the title to, until your debt to them is paid off. Unless you can pay off the loan within the time they say, and be able to follow all the rules of your contract,then this could be a very stressful way to borrow. Even if you can follow the contract exactly, sometimes they'll find ways to keep those things important to you.

Exchange Lending - Occasionally, you'll find a lender willing to loan to you in exchange for the title to your house, vehicle, and possibly other property, until the debt is paid off. This is known as either collateral, or predatory lending. It's a very dangerous way of borrowing money, and could possibly take your property, if the payment is even as much as a few days behind. It is best to avoid this kind of loan, as the situation could be very stressful.

Opinions

One way to make sure the loan is proper for you, is to hire a lawyer.Lawyers are advised because they can translate the loan contract for you and make sure you aren't falling for the hidden interest, or the mistake of giving your house title, for a loan that you may not be able to pay on time. If you aren't able to afford a lawyer,make sure you read the contract as well as you can, and even get more than one opinion about it. Just remember that a loan can be great way to go, but also a wild ride to get out of.
