Guide to Personal Loans


Here is a useful guide to Personal loans. What is a personal loan? A personal loan is money lent to an individual by a financial institution for a specific personal purpose.

A personal loan is an amount of money offered, normally by lending institutions such as banks and building societies, on the condition that it will be paid back at some later date. Personal loans are available in a whole host of formats and can range from £500 upwards.

One main difference between a personal loan and a home loan is that most personal loans are unsecured. So, that means that there is no collateral provided and the only guarantee that a borrower can give the lender is his reputation for good credit. This is also one of the main reasons why personal loans have interest rates that are a percentage higher than most other loans.

A personal loan is money you borrow from a bank, building society or other financial institution. A personal loan is a loan that's not secured by personal property or collateral like a home or car.

A personal loan is available in varying amounts with different rates, usually depending upon the purpose for which you require the loan.

An unsecured personal loan is usually more expensive than homeowner loans as the lender doesn't take a charge on your loan. In other words, with this type of loan, you do not guarantee it with your home.

You borrow an agreed sum of money for an agreed length of time, anywhere between five months and ten years. The lender offers you a personal loan because they make money by charging interest on it. The interest rate can be either fixed or variable. In most cases you'll get a decision within 24 hours.

Under most personal loan arrangements you receive a lump sum, equal to the amount of the agreed loan and in return you agree to make regular repayments. These repayments are normally monthly and cover both the interest due and the capital outstanding loan amount.

If you are looking to borrow money over a period of less than ten years, whether you need the money for a purchase or perhaps to repay existing debt, then a personal loan may be suitable for your needs.

Personal loans are just another form of credit. If you are considering a personal loan to run alongside other forms of personal credit such as overdrafts and credit cards, you must give careful consideration to whether you will be able to afford the total of your regular payments. When considering the situation it is wise to take into account your ability to pay were you unable to work due to illness or should you lose your employment.

Frequently the lending institution will ask for details of the reason you require the loan. Although the purpose of the loan may have little impact on their decision to grant the money, it can have some influence on the maximum term of the loan.

It is more likely that larger sized loans, for purchases such as cars, home improvements etc. will result in a longer repayment term. It is not uncommon for the purchase of a car to established with a repayment term of 3 years whilst the term for home improvement loans can be for much longer terms, sometimes as long as ten years.

Making repayments under personal loans is the same as servicing any debt you may have. If you find that you have difficulty in making your repayments, seek advice from your lender at the earliest opportunity. The earlier you tell them of the difficulties the more sympathetic they are likely to be. They may, for instance, accept a reduced repayment until your circumstances improve.
