Bad Credit Secured Loans: Not That *Bad* Afterall - Articles Surfing
Walking into the finance market with something called *Bad Credit,* puts you in a completely new position and makes a whole new horizon of loans available. Why? Well, the answer is simple*
Bad Credit is a label that tells people you are a defaulter. It notifies your lender that in the past you haven*t repaid in full or on time, whatever be the reason. Bad Credit is something that arises out of bankruptcies, non payments, late payments, arrears, C.C.J's (County Court Judgements), etc. These situations are sometimes unavoidable, especially when faced with sudden medical emergencies that involve additional expenses, an unexpected redundancy, a divorce, etc. In the finance market, a defaulter's tag will only get you hesitant lenders, exorbitant interest rates, short and nonnegotiable loan terms, small loan amounts and stringent options. This is not offering you any opportunity but making the entire loan senseless since you are bound to default again with such large instalments to be paid. This is what has made Bad Credit Secured Loans a requirement today.
Being a defaulter is no longer considered embarrassing since their number has gradually risen to extensive heights. The number of people falling into this category is so high, that it has called for the creation of a completely new set of loans, called Bad Credit Loans. The idea behind these loans is to make the repayment process affordable and convenient to defaulters like you and me. To achieve this Bad Credit Secured Loans offer extended loan terms, reduced interest rates, etc. However, a mandatory feature in this case is collateral.
Collateral is an asset that holds intrinsic value. For example, your home, current bank account, your vehicle, expensive jewellery, etc. The value of these assets is pledged with lenders until complete repayment of the loan. These assets assure lenders that you will repay the amount. In cases where you fail to do so, a lender compensates for his loss by seizing this collateral.
Few features of Bad Credit Secured Loans:
*Your current financial standing, collateral value and the appraisal a lender makes regarding your capability to repay the loan plays an important role.
*It is true that your credit score is important while approving your Bad Credit Secured Loan, but since you are already a defaulter, it is no longer the deciding factor. Collateral, equity, income, current debts, and recent credit history should be your strong points.
*With Bad Credit Secured Loans, you can borrow *5,000 to *75,000. This amount varies with the value of the collateral you pledge.This is the same as that offered on a regular secured loan.
*The loan term ranges between 5 to 25 years.
*Documents required for Bad Credit Secured Loans include income tax returns, bank statements, collateral estimate and proof of ownership.
*These loans do not stress on credit checks. Therefore, those with bad credit scores can easily apply for them, although there are certain criteria to fulfil for approval. This includes full time employment.
Bad Credit Secured Loans can no longer be considered taboo. It is a reality that people have gradually come to terms with. These loans can be looked at as an opportunity to better your credit score. Making your repayments on time and in full is what will gradually change your credit report.
To better your chances at getting a good Bad Credit Secured Loan:
*Take only those loans that you cannot do without. Do not get into unnecessary debt.
*Try taking small amounts for Bad Credit Secured Loans.
*Offer high-value collateral and create significant cash reserves.
*Use a co-signer: While you repay the loan, you get the loan approved using your co-signer's credentials.
Bad Credit is not the end * but a beginning with a different perspective. Use this to your advantage. Bad Credit cannot be *that* bad afterall!!!
