Unsecured Loan - Repay it in Short-term

By: Andrew Baker

When there is only smaller loan needed for few months or years, then you can pick up an unsecured loan, with the added benefit that such borrowed amount will be made available without any risks for you. However, you will be deprived of all the benefits if the loan turns out to be a repayment burden, once you borrow the loan without taking your circumstances into account.

These loans can give you anywhere from ?5000 to ?25000, without providing any property for collateral. Both tenants and homeowners can find these loans, once they have proved their income and employment. Usually, the approval comes after the borrower has convinced the lenders about safely repaying the loan. Hence, the borrower's past record of credit plays a role in approving the loan and determining the terms-conditions.

You can repay Unsecured Loan in six months to 15 years, keeping the borrowed amount and your repayment capability in mind. The loan can be put to any use like home improvements, buying a car, going to a holiday tour, paying for wedding expenses or clearing some old debts etc.

However, because of risks for the lenders, they charge interest at higher rates. Usually, the rate is fixed on these loans. This implies that you can beforehand know the monthly outgoings towards the interest payments, and you can plan the repayment accordingly.

If you have a blemished history of late payments, defaults, arrears and CCJs, then the loan can be availed on the condition that you will have to pay interest at enhanced rates. It is advisable to apply for the rate quotes to find out which lenders are offering unsecured loan at competitive rates. Look for an offer that has fewer extra charges as well. Ensure that you repay the loan in timely manner, so that your credit rating improves in few years.
