Unsecured Loans - Smaller Amount for Short-term

By: Simon Taufel

A smaller amount of loan can be accessed through unsecured loans, but you must ensure that the borrowed amount does not carry high costs. In taking such a loan, your focus should be on how to make the repayment an easy task, without jeopardizing your finances.

The loan amount ranges from ?1000 to ?25000. Both tenants and home owners are eligible as these loans are approved without the borrower providing any property, as collateral. In the absence of collateral, the lenders will approve an amount that is well within your repayment capability.

These loans are offered for short-term of few months to 15 years, depending on the borrowed amount and your repayment ability. Avoid carrying the loan for many years, as this will result in high interest payments in the end.

Unsecured Loans are associated with high rate of interest, as the lenders want to cover the risks. However, the rate may be lowered for the borrowers, who have a good history of making payments on time.

Through the smaller amount, you can make home improvements; purchase a car, meet wedding or holiday expenses, pay off old debts etc. keep your requirements in mind while borrowing the loan.

For those people, who have late payments, defaults, arrears or CCJs mentioned in their credit report, the loan approval will depend whether they are ready to make high interest payments or not. Check your credit report to ensure that it is free of any errors.

It is advisable to make an extensive comparison of different lenders, who provide unsecured loans. Apply for the rate quotes for getting a select list of such lenders. While making the comparison, look for a lender, who is charging fewer additional fees. This way, you can find a suitable deal. Make sure that you borrow an amount, which you an repay without any delay.
