Secured Loans Pros and Cons
- You can borrow more with a Secured Loan, although this will depend upon a number of factors, such as your financial and employment status, your equity levels and credit history.
- Secured Loans are a good debt help option to people who have a bad credit rating and cannot obtain any form of unsecured finance. Although, you would probably be charged higher interest rates than someone with a good credit rating.
- You get longer repayment periods than you would with an Unsecured Loan, in some cases up to thirty years. This can help you keep your monthly repayments low.
- There are some very good rates available on Secured Loans. Check your Credit Rating and make sure you do you research on the best lenders before taking out a loan. Use an independent broker to get impartial advice.
- Secured loans are secured against your home. This means that if you don’t keep up with repayments and fall into arrears you could risk losing your home.
- Interest rates and house prices have an effect on you repayment amounts. If house prices fall sharply after you have taken out a Secured Loan you could find that you fall into negative equity which will mean you owe more on your home than the property is actually worth.
- Secured Loans are available over a long term. This is good in the fact that it keeps you monthly repayments low but it can also leave you in debt for a very long time. Some lenders will charge you penalties if you want to pay of the loan early.
