Unsecured Tenant Loans: Non Homeowners Have No Option?... It?s Time To Reconsider

Posted by Nick Niesen on October 29th, 2010

The ?Loan World? is a complex jungle full of a variety of loans, all at your disposal. Literally ? there?s something for everyone! There are Personal Loans, Wedding Loans, Home Improvement Loans, Home Loans and many others. The cash obtained through these loans can then be used for home furnishing, renovation, buying that dream home/car, education or weddings. Well, what about those who have no security to offer or no collateral to put up to avail these loans? Like I said, there?s something for them too, it?s called an Unsecured Tenant Loan.

Being unsecured like many other loans, these Tenant Loans do not require you (the borrower) to place any collateral as security, as in case of Secured Loans. This makes Unsecured Tenant Loans very attractive to non homeowners like tenants, students, PG?s, etc. However, this advantageous feature has it?s drawback too. Owing to the absence of collateral, lenders have to bear a greater risk with regard to repayment. With Secured Loans, in case you default on your repayments, lenders can take custody of your collateral. Conversely, in case of Unsecured Tenant Loans, defaulting on your monthly payments leaves your lenders in a lurch.

Advantages of a Tenant Loans:
·The best thing about a tenant loan is that you don?t have to put any property at risk. Most people who put up their home as collateral face repossession in case of inability to repay the loan.
·Tenant Loans save your precious time in the process of procurement, as you don?t have to go for valuation of property. As a result you avoid a lot of paper work.
·Tenant Loans are also available for people with bad credit histories, although the approval process is not a piece of cake.
·Tenant Loans, in short, are a boon for all non homeowners like council tenants, students, etc.

From above, as you can see, as there is no collateral to consider, there obviously can be no process for valuation of collateral. This means that your Unsecured Tenant Loan will take lesser time for approval and will clearly entail lesser paperwork, making liquid cash available to you rather quickly.

Now I?m sure you?re wondering why lenders offer such loans, when there?s nothing in it for them. Well, here?s what you?ve been looking for ? a glitch! To explain this better, let?s start talking ?interest rates.? To compensate for the lender?s risk factor, Unsecured Tenant Loans come with fairly high rates of interest. In addition to this, lenders need to make sure that the Unsecured Tenant Loans are repaid as soon as possible and so these loans have relatively short loan terms. As a precaution, the loan amounts are also restricted or limited as compared to Secured Loans. For example: For basic secured loans, the loan amount ranges from £5,000 to £75,000 and the repayment period extends from 5 to 25 years. While for Unsecured Tenant Loans, lenders tend to limit the value to £25,000 and the loan term extends up to 10 years only. So nothing can be perfect after all!

Disadvantages of Tenant Loans:
·Tenant Loans come with high interest rates because of the absence of collateral.
·The loan terms of Tenant Loans are very short to facilitate quick repayment.
·Tenant Loans grant only small loan amounts for the same reasons.

Unsecured Tenant Loans lenders too, are businessmen after all and have to have a reason for granting you your loan. For this, besides considering loan amount, loan terms and interest rates they need to mull over your repayment capability. They can gauge your repayment potential after checking your on your credit history and financial standing. A good credit history will further accelerate the approval procedure while a bad credit history will slow down the process. Here, please remember, that bad credit doesn?t necessarily stop you from getting your Unsecured Tenant Loan. Even those of you with bad credit due to a past bankruptcy, default in repayments, C.C. J?s (County Court Judgements) or arrears stand a fair chance of getting an Unsecured Tenant Loan approved.

Every Unsecured Tenant Loan is tailored to your needs and financial standing, so choose wisely. You must have extensive knowledge about current rates and options to finalize any loan. Take expert advice from knowledgeable people. Getting as many quotes from as many Unsecured Tenant Loan lenders as possible simplifies the situation.

? Like I said earlier, ?There?s something for everyone.? So get going today!
