Guide to Secured Loans


Here is a useful guide to secured loans. A secured loan is a loan that a lender provides on the understanding that a property is secured against the loan. Secured loans are also commonly known as a homeowner loan, home loan or home owner loan.

Secured loans can be a sensible way to borrow for certain expensive items, such as home improvements or debt consolidation.

This type of loan is usually provided with a lower interest rate than an unsecured loan because you will have secured your property against it. They are normally quicker to arrange because the lender has some security to offset against the loan should you default on the repayments.

A secured loan enables homeowners to borrow capital and offset the risk against the value of their property. This means that anyone taking out a secured loan is effectively using their property to guarantee the loan. If the borrower fails with the repayments, there could be a possibility their home is at risk.

Because the loan is secured against your home, the interest rate should be cheaper than an unsecured loan and you may be able to borrow more. One of the major benefits of a secured loan is that the interest rate charged by the lender tends to be significantly lower than that of an unsecured loan.

A lower interest rate, which is calculated as the annual percentage rate (APR), means that more of your monthly repayment is going towards repaying the original loan, rather than being absorbed by the interest you have incurred along the way. The interest rate for your secured loan will depend on many factors such as the amount of loan requested, the terms of the loan and your personal details.

Also, you can cut your monthly payments by stretching the loan over a longer term anywhere between five and twenty-five years.

A secured loan is the perfect way to borrow between £5,000 and £75,000 at a low rate. Obviously the better your credit history and individual circumstances will affect the rate which is offered to you. You can be approved for a secured loan even if you have mortgage arrears, retired or have county court judgements.

The consequences of not being able to keep up your payments are much more serious than with an unsecured loan. The danger with a secured loan is if you are unable to keep up the repayments on your loan your home which secured the loan could be in danger. Should you fall into difficulties or are unable to make the repayments on your loan you will sooner or later lose your home.

This is why before taking out a secured loan it is vital that you consider your debt problems seriously and make sure that you have budgeted fully and can cover the loan repayments.
