Secured Loans - Use the Equity in your Home

By: Adam Jaylin

If you are looking to borrow a higher loan amount, then a secured loan would be a viable option for you. If you are a homeowner in the UK, then you can easily procure a secured loan by keeping your home as collateral. Basically, a secured loan is a second charge mortgage. And, you can avail a loan amount up to 125 percent of the equity in your home. The lender finds secured loan to be less risky as compared to a personal loan. The presence of the collateral in this loan type makes this loan type to be safer for the lenders. However, if you fail to keep up the repayments, then the lender may sell your home for getting his money back.

You will find the typical APR (Annual Percentage Rate) of a secured loan to be lower, as compared to its unsecured counterpart. Though, the APR may vary for an individual borrower in accordance to the past credit score of a borrower. For getting a best deal you should compare the rates with the different lending institutions like the high-street banks or the building societies. But, nowadays the private lenders are also offering secured loans at competitive rates because of the stiff competition among themselves.

The best part with a secured loan is that you can avail a higher loan amount, which can be helpful in meeting your financial needs in a better way. A secured loan can be used for varied purposes like going for a major home improvement, wedding purposes, consolidating your huge debts etc.

There are various lending institutions available in the UK who may offer you online secured loans. In addition to this, the credit brokers can also assist you in choosing a right lender for you. If you fill up the online application form, the credit brokers will send your application form to a suitable lender, and then they may contact you with a suitable loan quote.
