Borrow with A Poor Credit Rating

By: Louis Rix

While homeowner loans are a way for those with a poor credit rating to get a loan they are not just suitable for that reason alone. A homeowner loan is one of the easiest types of loan that an individual can get approved for and you are able to borrow up to the amount of equity that is in your home while paying the loan back over long terms. You are able to borrow for just about any reason with the most popular being consolidation and home improvements.

Homeowner loans are also known as secured loans. The reason behind the name is that you put up your home as security against the borrowing in case you should default on the repayments. The equity that a lender will allow you to usually borrow is the amount left after you have subtracted the balance outstanding on the mortgage from the value of your home. However there are some lenders that will allow you to borrow as much as 125% of this. Of course you would have to have an excellent credit rating in order to be able to do this.

Those with a poor credit rating would be offered a loan that came with a higher rate of interest than an individual with a perfect rating. Your credit rating is the first thing that is taken into account and will go towards defining the rate of interest. Other factors that are taken into account are the amount you wish to borrow and how long you take the loan over. Lenders will vary this rate above the Bank of England base rate and it is worthwhile getting several comparisons.

A much better way to get comparisons is to allow a specialist to do the hard work for you. They are able to search and compare with the entire loan market. This will ensure that you get the cheapest interest rates possible based on your circumstances. Another advantage of going with a specialist is that when they gather quotes they will also give you the terms and conditions that go with each quote. The small print must be considered along with the rates of interest because this can make a difference to the amount you have to pay in total. It will tell you how much the loan will cost overall and how much interest you will pay. It will also make you aware of any additional costs. If you take a loan and find you can pay it off before the time specified you could have to pay a one off fee called an early repayment fee.

Advice and information on all aspects of homeowner loans is available with a specialist. They will provide FAQs and articles which contain good advice. It is to your advantage to learn as much as you possibly can in regards to the loan you are considering before taking on the commitment. You should also consider the fact that as the roof over your head could be at risk if you default on your monthly loan repayments, the reason for taking out the loan is well worth it.
