What is the difference between a personal loan and a secured loan?
There is one fundamental difference between personal loans and a secured loan. That is that no possession (e.g. a car, house, and similar larger value items) is at risk with personal loans.
With a secured loan, it is possible to provide the lender with a degree of comfort, and secure an item against the loan. This means that should you default, the lender will take ownership of the item, instead of repayment. Typically secured loans are for purchases with a very high value, as this means the lender has more to potentially lose from the transaction. Due to the fact that a secure loan has this added level of safety,
it is often possible to obtain a lower APR (Annual Percentage Rate) than a personal loan.
With a personal loan, you do not offer security against the loan. Therefore, the lender has more of a risk, because, in the event of non-payment, they stand to lose out financially. At Moolr, we work with lenders that offer personal loans from £500 to £5000 3. The repayment periods available can range from 3 months to 24 months, so you have every opportunity to budget for your personal loan.
What if I have a bad credit report?
No problem! We have personal loan lenders in our panel that specialise in helping those of us with a bad credit history. Personal loans are not just for those of us who are lucky enough to have a good credit report anymore. Everyone deserves an opportunity to rebuild their credit report, but finding a willing lender can be difficult. This is why we have dedicated years into building a system to make finding a personal loan for bad credit simple, and quick.
It is important, however, to consider your offered APR when searching for a bad credit personal loan. Similar to why a secured loan may carry a lower APR, due to the lessened risk, bad credit personal loans may come with a higher APR. This is due to risk analysis that every responsible lender should use. Personal loan providers should have a responsible lending policy, which means that if the risk analysis is too high, they should not offer a personal loan. Should the risk analysis deem that whilst there is a heightened risk of non-repayment on a bad credit personal loan, but within a safe range, then a personal loan offer can be made, but with a higher APR than normal. This will be made clear when we redirect you to your no obligation personal loan offer page on your lender’s website.
