What to know about secured loans

Why you might want a secured loan

Large purchases

Often, a secured loan is used to fund a large purchase, such as a home improvement project. As the loan is secured against an asset, usually your property, you can be eligible to borrow larger sums of money through a secured loan.

A secured loan is often used for things like:

  • Debt consolidation
  • Home improvements
  • Buying additional properties
  • Purchasing the freehold on a property

Who can get a secured loan?

To be eligible for a secured loan, you’ll usually need to be a homeowner. This is because the lender will require something of value to secure your loan against.

However, simply owning a property doesn’t automatically make you eligible for a secured loan. Lenders will also look at your affordability. So, if you have little or no equity in your home, this could count against you when checking your eligibility for a secured loan.

Things to think about

Before you commit to taking out a secured loan, you need to think carefully and be sure you can afford it. This is because your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on a mortgage or any other debt secured against it. Ensure you make an informed choice and take some time to consider your options.

What to keep in mind when borrowing money

When you take out a loan, you need to be comfortable that you can afford the monthly repayments for the entire loan term. Try to factor in any possible changes in circumstance that may prevent you from making your repayments.

If you do get into financial difficulty, talk to your lender straight away.
