Secured Loans Guide


Secured loans are becoming increasingly popular due to their flexibility. Basically, a secured loan is one for which you provide some form of collateral in order to cover the amount borrowed in the loan. A secured loan is a loan on which you as the borrower have provided the lender some kind of security for the money borrowed.

With a secured loan, the money that you borrow is secured against all or some of your assets, specifically an item of property that you can prove that you own as insurance for the lender against defaults or non-payment of instalments.

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

It is a bank loan designed exclusively for home owners which uses the net value of their property as security for the loan. As a result of inflation and part repayment of mortgages many home owners have a property which is worth far more than the mortgage they owe on it. A secured loan enables you to make use of this asset by providing security for your loan, whether you own a house, flat, bungalow or cottage.

Being a home owner affords you better status in the eyes of lenders. This makes it possible for home owners to obtain excellent interest rates. A secured loan usually has a much lower interest rate than an unsecured loan. You do not even have to have any equity in your property, some lenders will lend up to 125% of the value of the property.

It also means that you can get a loan if you've had past credit problems such as CCJ's, are self employed, or have no proof of income. Even if you have a bad credit history such as CCJ's, mortgage arrears or payment defaults, you can obtain a secured loan although the rate of interest you pay will be higher than if you had an unblemished credit history.

A secured loan puts cash in your pocket and is an extremely flexible facility which enables you to choose the sum you wish to borrow at a repayment you feel able to manage comfortably.

With a Secured Loan you can borrow from £5,000 to £75,000 with low monthly repayments. Secured Loans secured on property can be repaid over a period of between 5 years and 25 years .

Secured loans can be used for any purpose, there are no restrictions. Maybe you need to reduce your monthly outgoings by paying off all your debts, leaving you with one lower and more manageable monthly repayment. Or perhaps you would like to buy a new car, boat or caravan. What about new windows, conservatory or maybe an extension? It really is up to you.

One of the advantages of 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.

In the event that you cannot repay the loan and you default on it, the lender then has the right to force you to sell this collateral in order to recover the money that you owe to them. The collateral is usually a house or other property.
