Unsecured Loan: Certainly not a No Risk Avenue

By: Eric

Bizarre as it may seem, a considerable population of the UK population is taking out loans to pay for what quite many of us may consider frivolous expenses. Chief among them is cosmetic surgery. And the interesting part is that not only are women going in for it, even men seem to have been victims of this fad of preserving their physical facade.

Plastic surgery is a direct offspring of the popular culture which encourages us to look like clones. In a society where physical appearances are considered as a parameter by which your personal and professional life is gauged, it comes as no surprise that men and women are singularly obsessed on looking their best.

Recent reports suggest that the annual spending in 2006 on cosmetic surgery by men alone account for 5 million pounds. Most of them prefer to take out unsecured loan as they believe it to be a no risk loan. But, in their ignorance, borrowers may be setting their own trap for financial indenture.

Generally, an unsecured loan is a non-asset based loan where the lender has no right to the borrower's property. Due to this very reason, the interest charged against this loan is also significantly higher than asset based loans. The terms and conditions associated with this loan are not malleable. The maximum period till which you can stretch the loan tenure is 10 years.

There are only two factors that redeem this type of credit. Firstly, its expediency and secondly, it's no risk to collateral status. However, what most borrowers do not know is that an unsecured loan can easily be turned into a secured type of credit by the lender in the event of failure of repayment of the loan amount.

As the repayment terms and conditions are quite harsh, borrowers cannot afford to default on the repayment policies. If the lender decides to approach the county court, there is a huge possibility that the loan will be converted into a secured loan.
