What is a secured loan bad credit?
A secured loan is a funding option where you use your property as security. This means if you consistently miss your monthly repayments, then your lender is able to re-possess your property, in order to recover the amount they lent and the costs they incurred from lending to you. By using your house as security, you are reducing the risk that lenders will not be able to recover what they are owed, in the event that a customer defaults on their repayments. As a result of this, they may be more willing to provide financial solutions to you, even if you have a bad or poor credit background. A bad credit secured loan is therefore useful to people in situations where they may not have the most attractive credit background. It’s important to note that we also have secured loans for people with good or average credit profiles, which work in the same way.
Why use bad credit secured loans?
Borrowing money can give you the flexibility you need to complete your plans. Maybe you would like to improve your credit profile by consolidating debt. Or, it could be that you are interested in undertaking some home improvement projects, but your bad credit background is restricting access to funds. With a bad credit secured loan, you may be able to get the finance you need to begin your plans.
However, if you are thinking of consolidating existing borrowing, whilst your payment may be lower (which can help manage your monthly income and outgoings), be aware that this may extend the term of the debt and increase the total amount you repay.
