10 Year Loans

A 10 year loan allows you to borrow money and pay it back through fixed repayments. They can be used to consolidate your debts, pay for an extension on your home or any other purpose.

A 10 year loan could help you borrow a larger amount of money, and clear your credit over a decade through a series of manageable repayments. They can be taken out as either secured loans, which use your personal assets as collateral, or unsecured loans - which may be higher interest rates depending on your credit history. While this loan is more flexible than others, there are also risks associated with it. Find out more with our guide to 10 year loans.

What is a 10 year loan?

A 10 year personal loan allows you to borrow with a repayment plan that’s spread over a decade, making your monthly payments more manageable. With a repayment plan outlined from the outset, you’ll have an end goal for paying it back, helping you to plan for the future.

How do 10 year loans work?

10 year loans are a type of loan that is determined by the duration of the repayments (in this case ten years) rather than the amount or reason for the loan.

Before taking out a 10 year loan, you’ll choose between a secured and an unsecured loan. Unsecured loans don’t have any security, so your chances of being accepted could be affected if you have bad credit or CCJs. Secured loans use your assets, such as your home or car, as security and tend to be offered at a lower interest rate. However, if you fail to keep up with the repayments, you could risk losing these assets.

Benefits of choosing a 10 year loan

A 10 year loan can help you to plan your finances as you will have an end goal in mind from the moment the loan is taken out. The payments can also be more manageable, as they are spread over the period of a decade, and are usually offered at a lower interest rate than short term loans.

Risks of choosing a 10 year loan

While your monthly interest rates may be lower in 10 year loans than short term loans, you will pay more overall once the loan is fully paid off due to the interest payable over the longer term of the loan.

Also, if you cannot keep up with the repayments on your 10 year loan, you could face additional fees and the lender could take you to court. If you’ve taken out a secured 10 year loan, this could mean losing your home or other asset.

Applying for a 10 year loan

Paying back a 10 year loan is a big commitment. Before you apply for a 10 year loan, check that you can meet the repayments comfortably over the next decade.

It is also important to make sure your credit report is accurate, as any errors could affect the interest rate you are offered or even your eligibility.
