By: Celeste Parker

When smaller financial help is what you require, there is no need to apply for a loan that is meant for greater borrowings and then you take only smaller amount against your property. Better, you should search for a loan that is especially designed for lending money without risking borrower's property. Clearly, such an unsecured loan comes handy for tenants or non-homeowners, though homeowners can also go for the loan. The loan amount can be used for any personal purpose including buying a car, going to a holiday tour, home improvements, consolidating debts, planning wedding party, paying medical or educational bills.

So, not only tenants or non-homeowners but homeowners can benefit from this risk free loans. Lenders prefer borrowers who have a good credit history or have a sound capability to repay the loan installments in time. However with certain conditions the lenders are now willing to approve these loans for any type of borrowers.

In the absence of collateral, the lender takes risks in approving a loan. So, only smaller amount ranging ?5000 to ?25000 is approved depending on borrower's repaying ability. The loan repaying duration also is kept shorter in the range of 5 to 15 years.

To cover for the risks, the lenders tend to charge interest at higher rate on Unsecured Personal Loans. So, one can say that these are costly borrowings for persona purposes. But borrowers with good credit history can find a suitable lender who charges interest at comparatively lower rate.

Even if you have a blemished credit history, you can find a lender who especially offers unsecured loans to such borrowers. So be it late payments, defaults, arrears, CCJs or IVAs, lenders will approve you a loan if you have capability to repay it in time.
