Unsecured Loans: Winning Customers Approval

By: Eric

Initially, in order to take a loan, you had to pledge something as collateral. The loan amount also depended upon the value of the home. But that left a huge section of the society unserviced as far as loans were concerned. Unwilling to let go of such a huge potential market, financial lenders devised a loan whereby, even non homers could avail the facility of a loan.

What it effectively did was to remove the collateral barrier from the loan procedure altogether. This broadened the customer base. Tenants, homeowners, self-employed, students, as well as council residents are part of its wide clientele. Even if you are a homeowner and can afford to borrow a big sum of money, it is advisable to first decide the total amount needed before opting for any loan.

If the cash needed is less than ?25,000 then even homeowners can go in for unsecured loans. With a repayment period stretching from 12 months to 10 years, it's a low risk loan for homeowners. The lack of property evaluation also ensures that less time is spent on real estate matters. There is also less red tapism involved.

However, getting unsecured loans is not easy. Borrowers have to have a good credit score in order to make it to the final approval stage. Lenders forward each application to credit bureaus for a check of the borrower's credit scores. If there are any discrepancies in the loan application and the credit report, lenders will blacklist that particular application and stop its processing.

Therefore, before filing up the loan application for unsecured loans, it's always advisable to check the facts before putting it down on paper. For example, you might have been making minimum payments on your credit cards for sometime now or have been taking overdrafts regularly or you may have forgotten to clear your credit statements for the last month. All these things will be shown on your credit score.
