Why Choose a Homeowner Loan?

Outlined below are some of the reasons for choosing a Homeowner Loan. A Homeowner Loan is a loan secured against your home. They are also known as secured loans.

A Homeowner Loan is any loan which requires the borrower to provide the lender with some form of security, in the case of Homeowner Loans the 'security' will be a mortgage over the borrower's home. This is usually secured on a property, although the property can be mortgaged through another lender such as a bank or building society, assuming that there is some equity in the house.

A Homeowner Loan will allow you to borrow money against your house, what this does is it enables you to not only get a quicker decision or borrow a larger amount but also lets you get a lower APR?

Homeowner loans can help you unlock capital tied up in your home. They offer solutions that many other loans do not offer, like long repayment terms.

Homeowner loans (where your home is used as security against the loan) are suitable for when you are trying to raise a large amount; are having difficulty getting an unsecured loan; or, have a poor credit history. Lenders are more flexible with their underwriting, making a secured homeowner loan possible when you may have been turned down for an unsecured loan.

Applying for a bad credit loan if you are a homeowner with equity increases your chances of being successful, because the lender is offering a loan against your property which is security in itself. If your homeowner loan application is successful it is possible, however, that the interest rate may be higher depending on the severity of your bad credit history.

Homeowner loans are worth considering if you need extra money to spend on a new car, home improvements, or that holiday of a lifetime.

The amount borrowed usually varies from Ł5,000 upwards and is dependent on the equity you have in your property and the lenders view of your ability to repay the loan. The amount borrowed is usually repaid over a period of between 5 - 25 years.

Lenders charge interest rates on the amount borrowed. These are sometimes fixed but for homeowner loans are usually variable. If the rate is variable the rates change with market forces and could change the amount you repay.

There is some risk attached to a homeowner loan. If you do stop making your repayments then your lender has every legal right to take the money back out of your home. At the end of the day most of us find that the cheaper rates we are offered for homeowner loans outweigh the slight disadvantages.

Homeowner loans are secured against your home which will be at risk if you can not meet your repayments.

To avoid any problems with your homeowner loan repayments you can take out homeowner loan protection products which will cover your repayments should you fall ill or lose your job.

A Payment Protection Plan is a small additional insurance payment that you make each month. This extra payment will be included with your loan repayment. This small sum will ensure that if you lost your job, became ill, or unexpectedly pass away your loan repayments will be paid for you.

Finally, you will find that the whole application process will take longer. The provider will need to value your home, which can take a long time. But in the end, it should be worth the wait, as you can get a much cheaper rate.
