Homeowner Loans

Homeowner loans are a type of secured loan which is borrowed against the value of your house. They can be used to improve or extend your home, for debt consolidation, or for any other purpose.

Homeowner loans work similarly to secured loans, but are typically borrowed against the value of your property, rather than other assets such as your car. This allows you to borrow larger amounts of money, usually at a lower interest rate than unsecured loans. However, there are risks to this type of borrowing as failure to meet repayments could lead to repossession of your home. Read on to discover the advantages and risks of secured homeowner loans.
  • You can borrow up to a set percentage of your home’s value

  • The amount you can borrow will depend on your property’s value as well as your credit history and financial situation

  • Interest rates tend to be lower than unsecured loans

  • If you default on repayments, your home may be at risk

What are homeowner loans?

A homeowner loan is a type of credit secured against the value of your property. It allows you to use the value of your home as a guarantee you’ll be able to repay a loan by putting up your property as an asset.

How do homeowner loans work?

A homeowner loan works like a mortgage - the amount you borrow is secured against the value of your home. You’ll pay off the loan each month over an agreed timeframe.

Benefits of choosing a homeowner loan

Lenders tend to offer more favourable terms on a homeowner loan than with unsecured loans. This is because they view the loan as a lower risk, as the borrower has secured the borrowing against their home.

It means you may be offered lower interest rates and more choice over the duration of your loan, meaning a more manageable monthly repayment.

Risks of a homeowner loan

Although putting your home up as collateral for a loan tends to increase your chances of landing favourable terms, this is a huge decision that requires a big commitment and careful consideration.

If you fail to meet the repayments, your home may be used to recover the outstanding debt by lenders, so it’s vital you ensure you can afford the repayments before you apply for a homeowner loan.

Is a homeowner loan right for me?

Taking out a homeowner loan is a big decision that shouldn’t be made lightly. Before you apply, carefully consider what terms will be manageable for you month-to-month. A homeowner loan will put your home at risk if you fail to maintain the agreed repayment schedule.

Am I eligible for a homeowner loan?

There’s a lot to consider when it comes to homeowner loans, from bad credit ratings and employment status to repayment periods. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions.

The maximum amount you can borrow against your home will depend on the equity of the house. This is determined by your home’s value and the percentage of that value the lender is willing to accept.
