Secured Bad Credit Loans Make Sense
Secured bad credit loans were seen with a bit of contempt in times gone by. Now they make complete sense, and we should be glad. Official UK figures indicate why! According to CreditAction.org.uk 'At the end of December 2005 the total UK personal debt was £1,158bn. Total secured lending on homes in December 2005 was £965.
2bn. This has increased 10.4% in the last twelve months.' This is while the average British consumer debt is £7,786, and that is not taking into account mortgages. Average household borrowing through credit cards, vehicle and shopping finance deals has increased five times in five years.
Yet the typical house price in the UK in November 2005 stood at £186,431 (source: Office of DPM). The figures speak for themselves. The much higher rates of interest payable on credit cards, auto and retail finance (store cards etc.) take a huge chunk out of the typical person's monthly earnings. The single sensible way forward is quite obvious. Consumers need to convert the high interest credit into lower interest credit by using their property by way of security. Even if people's credit standing is quite poor it makes even more sense to pay off the same amount of money at a smaller rate of interest by means of a secured bad credit loan. Now new lending sources are springing up which consider all circumstances. This latest market for secured bad credit loans has grown up in the last decade or so, and it has developed outside of the mainstay of the High Street lenders. As long as people have property then they can borrow as much money as they want to pay off existing borrowing.
Nor do intelligent consumers have to pay the exorbitant rates of interest that used to be the case with people whose credit standing was not the best. Would it not make more sense to pay £60 a month in servicing that debt than £150 a month servicing exactly the same debt? Secured bad credit loans offer that opportunity. Improvements in financial credit management assessment mean that loans providers are readily prepared to take into account secured bad credit loans where these were untenable in the past. The self-employed, in particular, are not treated as they were, especially with the new approach towards self-certification. Three years of audited accounts are no longer automatically required from people who want to work for themselves. People with County Court Judgements, Individual Voluntary Arrangements, people who have reneged on past or current finance agreements and even discharged bankrupts are now usually considered in today's changing world of finance. Increasingly consumers are taking larger financial risks, especially those in commerce and the entrepreneurial minded. The secured bad credit loans marketplace is expanding to take account of that because it has to. Of course, borrowers should never consider secured loans where they are not totally sure they are able to make the repayments. Those people should take a look at unsecured financial products (which are more expensive).
But, as CreditAction.org.uk states, the average value of a house in the United Kingdom is '£186,431 (£195,319 in England). United Kingdom yearly house price inflation rose by 2.5 per cent. Annual house price inflation in London was 2.2 %.' Putting all that money to good use by taking out a secured credit loan is an option most borrowers should look at, whatever their credit status.
