Secured Homeowner Loans for Bad Credit

Posted by Nick Niesen on October 29th, 2010

Managing a loan with bad credit may be a difficult proposition. However if you own your own property, a loan can be secured using the property or a home as a guarantee that the loan will be repaid in a timely manner.

If you need a homeowner loan, bad credit personal loan, home improvement loan, debt consolidation loan or other secured loans, then you may find a variety of loans available to you based on the ownership of your home.

Such loans can encompass a rather small sum or something much larger depending on factors such as time of repayment, history of credit use and the amount of equity available in your home.

Many financial firms can provide confidential service with no upfront fees and will allow you to borrow thousands of pounds against the value of your secured personal property. In spite of what you might believe, these loans can be secured with low interest rates and payments and can accommodate bad credit. Certain loans can even be agreed in principal within minutes of your application.

Several lending firms in the UK can be found online allowing you to work through an online application in confidence and at your own pace. Loan terms can be as long as 30 years in some cases allowing you to maximize your loan with terms that provide a comfortable repayment plan.

Certain financial firms can also provide a secured loan even if you?ve been refused in the past due to factors such as Self-employed Status, Arrears, County Court Judgments, or Defaults. The reason this is possible is due to the fact that this type of loan can only be extended to those who actually own property. Lending institutions can provide these terms because they understand that there will always be a motivation to repay the note because of the property tied to the successful repayment.

Rates of around 12% are average in these types of loans although the rate does remain variable. Depending on the history of your credit practice you may find an APR as low as 5% or as high as 20%.

Most lending institutions will make themselves available to discuss your specific needs when personal property is involved as collateral. Terms are generally favourable in such instances and, are available to a larger group of those seeking credit than many other existing loans.

This type of loan is nothing new. In fact, it has a long and venerable history. Property has always been tied to investment and personal wealth.

Should you require a loan for a variety of financial needs - and you have personal property to secure a loan - be sure to look into available financial options that may be well suited to your objectives.
