Why Choose a Personal Secured Loan?


Listed below are some of the many reasons why choosing a personal secured loan makes good sense. Personal secured loans are also commonly known as a homeowner loan. This type of loan is essentially an amount that is secured against property as collateral.

A personal secured loan is a loan which is provided to you from a bank, building society or other financial institution. Personal secured loans require you to be able to put an asset up to secure the loan, this is typically your home. Since this affords a measure of security to the lender, you get lower interest rates and a longer period in which to pay back your loan.

With a personal secured loan you can borrow from around Ł5,000 to Ł75,000 that can be paid back over an average period from 5 to 25 years depending upon the amount repayable each month. When you are accepted for the personal secured loan you will receive a lump sum in return for your agreement to make regular repayments usually by direct debit.

Taking out a personal secured loan gives you the opportunity to borrow money in order to increase the value of your home by making improvements. You could also take out a personal secured loan in order to pay off a number of other smaller loans, credit or store card balances. You would then benefit by having to make a lesser monthly payment and the ease of having to make only one payment each month.

Personal secured loans can be used for a wide range of purchases or financial help, from home improvements, weddings, buying a new car to consolidating all your existing loans, credit and store cards.

A personal secured loan gives you the option to pay back the loan borrowed over a longer period of time and at a lower interest rate. Personal secured loans also offer you the ability to increase your repayments or to repay a lump sum if your financial situation changes at any time. This can help to reduce the amount of time you will be paying off the loan, and of course the total amount of interest you pay back.

Personal secured 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.

One of the advantages of personal secured loans is that they are generally straightforward and therefore quick to arrange, often within a few weeks. As the lender is securing the loan against your property as collateral, it means you don't have to sell up or move house.

Even if you have a bad credit history such as CCJ's, mortgage arrears or payment defaults, you can obtain a personal secured loan although the rate of interest you pay will be higher than if you had an unblemished credit history.

Personal secured loans can be used for a variety of reasons, including:

home improvements - a loan is taken out to carry out home improvements, with the aim of adding to the overall value of the home.

car finance - a loan is taken out to finance the purchase of a new car, as the terms of a personal secured loan are more attractive than other car finance options.

mortgage arrears - a loan is taken out to cover arrears in mortgage repayments, or to convert current mortgage repayments into a longer-term, more manageable loan repayment.

debt consolidation - a loan is taken out to pay off existing debt, thus consolidating the debt into one manageable, longer-term loan repayment.

The danger with a personal secured loan is if you are unable to keep up the repayments on your loan your home or asset which secured the loan could be at risk. It is important to bear in mind that your property is at risk if you fail to keep up the personal secured loan repayments.
