Guide to Secured Personal Loans


Here is a useful guide to secured personal loans. A secured personal loan is the generic term for a loan. A secured personal loan is when you take out a loan that is secured on your property.

A secured personal loan is secured against your home to act as security to the lender for the money you have borrowed. A secured personal loan is often referred to as a homeowner loan.

Secured personal loans are an ideal solution for homeowners who have recently been refused a personal loan or for home owners wanting to borrow a larger loan amount.

The property you own is valued and the lender can then decide how much they are willing to loan you. A secured personal loan can sometimes be the best option if you are looking for lower rates of interest, longer repayment lengths and own your home.

Secured personal loans are 'secured' on the assets of the borrower. The most often used asset for a secured personal loan is the borrower's home. In some cases lenders may allow the loan to be secured against other items of value. Because the lender has security, the interest rate (APR) offered is usually lower than for unsecured loans, but rates can vary greatly depending on individual circumstances. Secured personal loans offer lower interest rates, due to the lower risk that is being taken on by the loan company.

So, why do people take out secured personal loans? Well, firstly you may want to borrow money in order to increase your home's value by making improvements to your home. Others may take on a debt consolidation loan, which means that you take on a large loan for a long period, which pays, off your other loans and credit cards and you end up paying a smaller monthly payment than you were paying with all of your other loans together.

The application process is a lot longer with secured personal loans than with unsecured loans, due to the fact that your loan provider will need to value your home.

The amount that you borrow for a secured personal loan may be limited by your collateral value in your property. So, the greater the collateral, the greater the amount you can borrow against it. Even if you have had credit problems in the past, you may still be able to get your funding.

With a secured personal loan you can borrow from 5,000 to 75,000 with low monthly repayments. Loans may be taken out over terms ranging from 5 to 25 years giving you the option of setting repayments at a level with which they feel comfortable.

Secured personal loans tend to have a lower interest rate compared to unsecured personal loans. This is because there is less risk involved for the lender because the loan is secured on your property.

If you default on your payments, you will find that loan providers will be a good deal more patient with you. Because they know that they have your home as collateral for the loan, they will give you more time to recover from whatever problems you are having that are making you late on your payments. This is not guaranteed though, so take the time to plan your payments and make sure that you can make them comfortably before you take the loan out.

Majority of lenders offer the option of fully comprehensive insurance cover to protect your payments in the event of the unexpected.
