Easy Money for All your Needs

By: Aisha Cristal

Imagine falling into an emergency financial situation with an empty bank account. Does not it raise your blood pressure? Does not all your fun get vanish? The matter worsens when you have no one to bank upon, no property or asset to offer as security or you do not want to put your home at risk to get those much needed funds. There are loan plans offered by several lenders in the UK financial market which can help you in such situations. The greatness of these loan plans is that they are designed for borrowers who do not have anything to offer as security. The lender who provides such loan plans has no claim to the property or assets of the debtor, if he fails to repay the loan on time.

Six out of every ten people in the UK have adverse credit situations like CCJs, default, arrears or bankruptcy. Earlier, lenders considered lending to such people a risky proposition. Now, the situation has changed, and in order to counter the risk involved in such a loan the interest they charge is higher than the secured borrowing.

Unsecured personal loans do not come with residential property security clause, not providing any guarantee for lender's money in case of default in repayment. Therefore, lenders want to ensure the creditworthiness of the borrower before giving any loan. This is the reason why these loans are given after a thorough check of the borrower's credit history and financial condition. As these loans are a risky business, the lenders are wary of giving large sums. Usually, with this loan one can get any amount between ?500 and ? 25000.

The repayment schedule of the unsecured loan is designed in such a way that it increases the profit and minimises the risk for the lender. Most lenders will give you the option to repay the loan within six months to ten years. The longer the tenure of the loan plan, the lesser is the monthly instalment and higher is the interest you pay on it. Borrower should decide such a monthly instalment that it doesn't pinch him and he should opt for the repayment period that is as short as possible.

There are many advantages of getting an unsecured personal loan. The application given for such loans is approved faster than those for secured loans. The simple reason for fast processing is that there is no property valuation. The fees associated with property valuation is also absent in the case of such loans. These loans are available to borrowers having adverse credit ratings, but a good credit record helps in getting a better deal.
