A secured loan is another name for a mortgage. It can be either a first or second ranking charge depending on the client’s circumstances. They are sometimes called homeowner loans or collateral loans but in all cases they provide a way to borrow large sums of money quickly using the equity the applicant holds in their home or rental property. By securing the loan against the equity in the property the lender protects themselves against the applicant failing to make the contractual repayments.
Secured loans can be for as little as £1,000 or as much as £2,500,000 depending on the equity held.
Representative Example: Representative Example: If you borrow £40,000 over 13 years at a rate of 6.950% variable, you will pay 156 instalments of £422.29 per month and a total amount payable of £65,877.24. This includes the net loan, interest of £22,582.24, a broker fee of £2800.00 and a lender fee of £495.00. The overall cost for comparison is 8.7% APRC variable.
