Estimated Secured Loan Rates
Interest rates vary significantly from one product and lender to the next. The interest you can expect to pay will be determined on the basis of several factors, such as the size of the loan, the length of the repayment period, your financial circumstances and your credit score.
If you have a good credit score and are in a comfortable financial position, use an interest rate slightly above that of a regular mortgage in our second charge secured loans calculator. Applicants with an average or poor credit score and financial status should enter between 5% and 12%, as a guide, depending on severity.
Please note, however, that these are purely indicative guidelines and may not be an accurate reflection of actual second charge secured loan rates at the time. For a clearer indication of the interest rate, you can expect on your second charge secured loan, call or email anytime for an obligation-free consultation.
What Can a Second Charge Secured Loan Be Used For?
A second charge secured loan can be used for almost any legal purpose whatsoever. The most common example of a secured loan is a standard mortgage, where the property being purchased is used as security for the loan, however, it is also possible and may be more cost effective to take out a second charge secured loan to purchase a vehicle, consolidate debt to reduce outgoings, to fund home improvements, business purposes and so on. Providing that you have a qualifying asset of suitable value to cover the total costs of the loan, you should be eligible for an affordable secured loan.
Where Can I Find the Best Secured Loan Deals?
Secured loans are available from conventional banks but more often from specialist lenders across the UK. This is why we strongly advise working with an independent broker, who can conduct a whole-of-market search on your behalf to find you the best deal.
