Why Choose a Bad Credit Personal Loan?

Listed below are some of the reasons for choosing a bad credit personal loan.

A bad credit personal loan is a low cost loan secured on your home. It frees up the spare capital (or equity) in your home for you to use on whatever you want.

A bad credit personal loan allows you to borrow money at a far better rate than an unsecured loan because your home is used as security and deemed less of financial risk by the borrowers.

A bad credit personal loan is a specialist loan aimed at those people who may have had credit problems in the past. They may have County Court Judgements, mortgage arrears or an imperfect credit history.

A bad credit rating does not always mean you will be unable to get a loan. As long as you have an income and can afford the repayment, you can get a loan. A history of CCJ's or defaulted loan repayments will mean that lenders will inevitably charge you higher rates to cover their perceived increased risk.

Even if your history includes CCJs, mortgage arrears or are self-employed - with or without proof of income there are lenders who will view your current circumstances sympathetically. The criteria for acceptance is usually that you are not unemployed, retired, bankrupt or on a debt management plan.

Some brokers and lenders specialise in adverse credit because they can charge high fees and a higher interest rate than normal and if the borrower is now in a good financial position the risk rating of the loan may be as good as someone who has no record of defaults.

A bad credit personal loan is usually secured on your property due to the increased risk taken by the loan lender. You have a higher chance of being accepted for a secured personal loan than an unsecured personal loan. This is because the property you put forward for collateral reduces the risk the loan provider is making, which in turn enables them to loan more money, over longer periods of time and at lower interest rates.

It is important to remember that if you have problems repaying your bad credit personal loan at any time your home could be at risk. By carefully planning your repayments and financial budgeting you are much less likely to run into debt.

With a bad credit personal loan you can borrow from �5,000 to �75,000 and up to 125% of your property value in some cases. Bad credit personal loans secured on property can be repaid over a period of between 5 years and 25 years .

A bad credit personal loan can be used for any purpose. Some of the most popular uses are, home improvements, luxury holiday, dream car or boat, debt consolidation and wedding expenses.
