Convenience Finance for Borrowers

By: Eric

Immediate finance can meet the needs of many people. It can be used to fund a number of purposes, like consolidating debts, funding a vacation, financing education purposes etc. There are loans for any type of customer, be it homeowners or tenants.

For homeowners, there is the option of secured loans that are available. Secured loans offer a big loan amount and low interest rates. These loans are offered after the borrower puts something of value as collateral against the loan amount. Loan amounts can go up to ?250,000, and the repayment term can stretch up to 25 years. The size of the loan amount and the length of the repayment term facilitate better management of finances.

For tenants, and homeowners who do not want to put their home as collateral against the loan amount, the amount can go up to ?25,000, and the repayment term can stretch up to 10 years. However, the interest rates with these loans are slightly higher, as the lender does not have the security of the collateral here. In case of a repayment default, the lender has nothing to fall back on. He does have the outside option of the Charging Order, but that is a hassle-laden approach and lenders usually want to avoid that. So, the credit history of the borrower becomes imperative here. Better the credit history the greater the borrower's chances of availing an unsecured loan.

Loans can be availed from a number of sources, like building societies, banks, private lenders and the Internet. Of these sources, the online option provides greatest expediency as well as choice. However, borrowers should always approach loans with some amount of discretion and good judgement.

Notwithstanding the tremendous amount of choice that the Internet provides, the same portal is rife with frauds and people who are just out to make a fast penny. Loan sharks, or unlicensed lenders as they are called, must be avoided at any cost.
