Personal Loans - for Diverse Monetary Requirements

By: bernard john

Gone are the days when people used to borrow money only for vital necessities. Nowadays, people are taking loans for routine needs, convenience and indulgence too. In general, human needs can be categorised as follows:

> Imperative charges related to surgery, extended treatments, late education fees, debt consolidation, etc.

> Standard expenses related to home, business, health, education, career development, wedding, vacation, holiday season, vehicle, debts, bad credit, etc.

> Lifestyle luxury payments related to spa treatment, spiritual healing, flying lessons, cosmetic surgery, gambling, etc.

Personal loans, available in both secured and unsecured form, can provide credit support for most of these expenses and any UK resident over 18 years of age can apply for them – subject to the borrower’s monetary requirement and basic credibility parameters, like past credit history, employment status and DTI ratio.

Personal loan sub-types:

> Secured personal loans: Suitable only for homeowners and property owners, these loans are availed by pledging collateral

> Unsecured personal loans: Suitable for all - tenants, homeowners, property owners and students – these loans are availed without pledging collateral.

Advantages:

> Secured personal loans – quick attention, high credit limit, competitive low APR, flexible payback terms and negotiable clauses

> Unsecured personal loans – no deposit against the loan amount, less official formalities, fast loan processing, and no immediate risks in the event of repeated defaults or non-repayment.

Disadvantages:

> Secured personal loans – collateral seizure (in case of repeated defaults or non-payment) and slow approval process (due to time-consuming property evaluation procedure).

> Unsecured personal loans – limited amount, high APR, fixed payback terms, non-negotiable loan clauses.

As both personal loan sub-types have pros and cons, loan seekers must decide on the basis of – monetary requirement and urgency; capability or willingness to pledge collateral; and APR and other loan benefits.

Some of the most saleable personal loan products in the UK credit bazaar are bad credit loans, business loans, car loans, career development loans, cosmetic surgery loans, debt consolidation loans, education loans, holiday loans, homeowner loans, home improvement loans and wedding loans.
