Probably the Best Secured Loan Rates in the UK
A secured loan is any type of loan issued based on security – aka ‘collateral’. Lenders issue secured loans based on the value of the borrower’s financial assets.
Secured loans are loans set against an asset. The secured loans we offer are loans secured against a property you own. Secured loans are also known as homeowner loans or 2nd charge mortgages, which all provide additional funding without affecting a current first charge mortgage. Homeowner loans usually start at £10,000 and are set up by using the equity in your property.

- Larger loans – it allows you to borrow more than personal loans which are usually up to £25,000
- Long term – similar to a mortgage, it will allow you to borrow funds for a longer term (depending on your expected retirement age/retired income) which in turn helps to keep a more manageable monthly payment, making it more affordable by spreading the cost
- Borrow more than standard mortgages – Lenders of secured loans will typically allow you to borrow more using higher income multiples or higher loan to values or both
- Lower rates compared to certain other types of finance such as credit cards and certain personal loans

As everyone’s individual circumstances vary, it is very important that the decision to borrow any finance is made after careful consideration. As the loan is secured against your property it may be at risk of getting repossessed if regular payments are not maintained. It might be prudent to take out an insurance policy to protect the homeowner loan in the event of illness or redundancy.
