A Home loan is the generic term for a loan. A home loan uses your home as security. It uses the net value of your property as security for the loan.
As a result of house price inflation and part repayment of mortgages many homeowners have a property which is worth far more than the mortgage they owe on it. A home loan enables you to make use of this asset by providing security for your loan, whether you own a house, flat, bungalow or cottage.
It is suitable if you want to raise a large amount; are having problems getting an unsecured loan; or have a poor credit history. Lenders are more flexible with their underwriting, making a secured home loan possible when you may have been turned down for an unsecured loan.
Since home loans can be secured on property, most lenders will approve your loan even if you have a bad credit history, which make home loans very attractive to people who would otherwise not qualify for a loan from their local bank.
A home loan is great if you want to raise a large amount; are having problems getting an unsecured loan; or have a poor credit history - you may be able to get a home loan even when you have been turned down for an unsecured loan.
With home loans you can borrow from £5,000 to £75,000. Loans secured on property can be repaid over a period of between 5 years and 25 years.
Being a homeowner affords you better status in the eyes of lenders. You can even qualify for a home loan when other money lenders have refused, for example because of County Court Judgements, Arrears, Defaults, Self-employed Status.
All home loans are secured on your property. This enables loan secured to be cheap and flexible to suit your needs - as all ideal loans should be! Unlock the value tied up in your property with a home loan.
A home loan can be used for any purpose such as; home improvements like a new kitchen or bathroom, luxury holiday, a dream car or repaying credit card or other debts to reduce your monthly outgoings to a more manageable amount.
Home loan rates are variable, depending on status. Monthly repayments will depend on the amount borrowed and term.
