Secured Personal Loans

For Australians trying to get a personal loan, there are potential obstacles in their path depending on their personal credit status. Basically, the better the credit rating, the more likely it is that you can get a personal loan at the interest rates that you desire.

However, for those who have had credit issues in the past, then getting an unsecured loan may be difficult to accomplish. However, there is another type of personal loan that may be within your reach. A secured personal loan may be the right answer for you.

What are Secured Personal Loans?

Secured personal loans are loans designed for a personal need that use some form of collateral to obtain the amount of money required. This means that something in the borrower’s possession such as a vehicle, home or other personal property can be used as collateral to secure the loan itself.

For example, if you own a vehicle that is in proper working order, it will be worth a certain amount of money that can be used as security to get the loan itself. Once the loan is paid in full, the lien on the vehicle is ended. However, if the borrower cannot pay off the loan, then the lender may take possession of the vehicle and sell it to pay off the debt.

Depending on the lender that you choose, they may have different conditions for the security needed to obtain the loan. This means that you may only use certain items or property or qualify for different rates and other considerations that need to be taken into account for your loan.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Secured Personal Loans

Arguably the greatest advantage of secured personal loans is that the personal credit history is not a factor when it comes to obtaining them. So, no matter your personal credit history which may include bankruptcy, you can still get a secured personal loan as long as you possess items that are free and clear and have intrinsic value which can be sold.

So, if you need a personal loan to pay off an emergency bill or perhaps repair a vehicle, you can secure the loan as long as you have the property necessary for collateral purposes. It is also possible that after paying off a number of secured loans that your personal credit rating may rise so that you can start to obtain unsecured personal loans, credit cards and the like.

A disadvantage is that secured loans tend to be more limited when it comes to their amount simply because they cannot exceed the value of the collateral. So, if you have needs for money that are greater than the items you own, you may not get what you need through secured personal loans.

When it comes to Australians getting the right loan for your needs, secured personal loans offers considerable advantages when the personal credit rating is not enough to get what you need. Be sure to talk to the lender about what is needed when obtaining secured personal loans.
