Secured Loans for Homeowners
A homeowner loan is a long-term borrowing product that is secured against your residential property, so you will obviously need to own your own home or be a mortgage holder in order to get one. By applying online using our services, the amount you are entitled to borrow can range from £15,000 to £250,000, depending on your financial circumstances, with repayment terms typically available from 5 to 25 years. When applying for secured finance, you should always remember that your home could be at risk should you find yourself unable or unwilling to meet the repayments at some point in the future.
How It Works
When you apply for a secured loan product through our website, we will search the entire market on your behalf in order to find the most competitive borrowing product in accordance with your individual needs and borrowing requirements. There are no upfront fees to consider and we always start by performing a soft search that will not affect your credit rating. Once you agree to a loan in principle, we then work as quickly as possible to ensure the funds are available in your banking account within 10 working days.
What Happens If I Have a Bad Credit Score?
If you have run into difficulty in the past with previous financial commitments then you may find it very difficult to obtain a competitive loan deal with affordable interest rates. However, even if you have CCJs and a poor credit rating, there are still a number of borrowing options available, as there are many people in the same situation. With a bad credit loan, we will look at your application on a one-to-one basis and search for the most affordable borrowing product in line with your specific circumstances.
As the loan is secured against your property, lenders know that their money is safe as they are legally entitled to sell your home if you cannot pay the money back. Of course, this is something that we all want to avoid and provided you can make the monthly repayments on time, you will not stand to lose your home. If you do experience any difficulty in terms of paying the loan back, then please contact your lender at the earliest opportunity so that they can work out an alternative repayment plan.
What Can A Secured Loan Be Used For?
Although home improvements are the most popular reason for secured borrowing, people take out secured homeowner loans for a wide variety of reasons.
Secured loans can be used to pay for:
- A New Car or Recreational Vehicle
- Luxury Holidays and Honeymoons
- Debt Consolidation and Paying Off High Interest Unsecured Debts
- A New Conservatory, Loft Conversion or Kitchen Extension
- Patios, Driveways and Landscaped Gardens
Secured Loans vs. Personal or Unsecured Loans
The main problem with unsecured or personal loans is that they are only available to those with a good credit rating. Unfortunately, this really does only apply to the select few. Personal loans are also significantly lower in value and the repayment terms usually range from 1 to 5 years. With a secured loan, you could borrow a considerably higher amount and you will even be accepted for a loan if your credit history is not quite up to scratch. Of course, you do need to be a homeowner if you want to apply but, if you are approved, you can look forward to longer repayment terms and much more competitive interest rates.
