Unsecured Personal Loans - for Tenants and Homeowners

By: Gracy Bonsu

There are two types of loans in the financial market today: secured loans and unsecured loans. Unsecured personal loans are popular for various reasons. One of its greatest features is that this loan can be availed by the homeowner as well as the tenant. Tenants take this loan as it is the only viable option for them. Homeowners take this loan when they feel they are taking too much of a risk by putting collateral at stake.

Unsecured personal loans come with a variety of advantages. These loans cater to diversity of needs, like funding a child's education, financing a vacation, paying for home improvements etc.

Unsecured loans are generally short-term loans, as they can cater to immediate requirements. These loans start from â‚?500 and can go up to â‚?15000. The maximum repayment term can be 10 years. The biggest benefit with this loan is that there is no threat of losing collateral over here. In case of a default, there is no real way that a lender can get back the loan amount.

However, this should not be a leeway to default. There is an alternative for the lender known as the "charging order", even though that can be hassling. Thus, to cover for a potential default, lenders, as a norm, tend to hike up interest rates.

There are several avenues from where one can avail unsecured personal loans. Traditional banks and financial institutions are established places; recently, there has been a stark increase in the number of private and online lending options. The last two, especially the last one, offers the borrower the much needed expediency as well as choices.

However, one should always take loan availing seriously. There are a number of lenders who offer secured loans, but not all measure up to the promises they advertise. Proper research and comparison analysis can give the loan taker the much needed edge in order to procure the close to ideal loan.
