Placing ones property as equity in order to request for loans have become rampant in the UK for a few years now. This method has its advantages and disadvantages too although the advantages are much. Although the rates are more attractive than those offered by traditional lenders, here are some tips to ensure you are making the right decision.
- Your property is on the line here so if you know deep down in your heart that keeping up with repayments would be difficult for you; it is advisable to reduce the amount of money you are requesting for.
- Be careful because interest rate could jump up at any time thereby increasing the amount of money you are required to pay back.
- You need to plan the loan with enough flexibility so that no matter what the circumstances are in the future, paying it back will not be a problem.
- Ensure that you read and understand the terms and conditions to know if the package suits your needs.
- Also watch out for hidden charges like early payment fees, transfer prohibitions and other fees that could be hidden under the contract agreement.
- On most occasions, the offer advertised might only be applied for the first six months or twelve of the loan’s lifespan after which it will begin to experience significant increase.
- During repayment, some lenders have what they call payment break but probably won’t mention any thing concerning it to their customers except when they are specifically asked.
- During this payment break, you are not required to meet up with your monthly instalments but interest will continue to accumulate thereby increasing the total amount of money required to be repaid.
- Always seek professional advice from experts in this field if you are not sure whether or not this type of loan is suitable for you.
