Unsecured Loan: Ruling the Market

By: Eric

A recent report suggests that most Britons are resorting to unsecured loans to consolidate their debts. Although, there are a number of loan products in the market, most borrowers still go in for this loan type.

Not an earth shattering report from any angel, but, the interesting point is that most people are aware of the fact that loans that are unsecured in nature charge a high rate of interest.

The most valid advantage that an unsecured loan has is the fast disbursal of money. As there is no collateral attached to the product, the documentation attached to this loan is less. It is only when property is involved that legal documentation becomes an unavoidable.

With no restriction in spending, some of the most common reasons for taking unsecured loan deals include debt consolidation, paying tuition and college bills, paying off rent and other utilities, and clearance of property tax and medical bills.

Generally, the amount allotted against an unsecured loan can reach the maximum limit of ?25,000 and can start as low as ?500. There are many days when you may feel the need for extra cash with the pay day being far away. In such a scenario, taking unsecured loan seems a practical option for many.

Generally, an unsecured loan can be dispensed off very quickly. At the max, it may take up to 4-5 days. This makes it the most convenient loan product after pay day loans. Although, primarily meant for non homeowners, it finds equal favour amongst homeowners as well. As a rule, if a homeowner places his home as security with lender, he effectively gives the lender the right to seize his home in case of failure of payment.

That's why its client base is quite big. While students and tenants are the main clientele, people looking for finances to start up their businesses also apply for it.
