What are homeowner loans?

A homeowner loan is a type of credit secured against the value of your property. You can 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, which can lower the interest rate you’re offered.

How do they work?

Unlike other loan products, a homeowner loan uses the value of your property to determine how much you can borrow, up to a set percentage of its value. The amount you borrow is secured against the value of your home. You’ll then pay off the loan each month over an agreed timeframe.

Benefits of choosing a homeowner loan

Applying for a homeowner loan can give you access to finance with more favourable terms. Because they use the value of your home as a guarantee, lenders will often give you access to lower interest rates and higher loan values than with unsecured loans.

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

Disadvantages of a homeowner loan

Although putting your home up as security for a loan tends to increase your chances of landing better terms, this can be 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?

Before you take out a homeowner loan, there are a number of things to consider to ensure it’s the right option for you.

Are the terms right for me?

Before you apply, you should be confident that you can manage monthly repayments. It’s especially important with loans for homeowners, considering you’re putting up your property as a form of security.

Can I afford the repayments?

Think about your typical monthly income and outgoings. If your circumstances were to change, could you still afford the repayments? A secured homeowner loan may have a long repayment period, so you want to be sure you can afford your payments before you commit.

Am I eligible for a homeowner loan?

If you own all or part of your own home, you could be eligible for a homeowner loan. Even if you’re applying with CCJs, or are self-employed or retired, we can help find the right loan for you. Read our guide to loan eligibility to find out more.

What do I need to apply for a homeowner loan?

First things first, you’ll need to decide how much you wish to borrow and for how long. You can use our homeowner loans calculator to see what your repayments may look like. You can then begin your application online.

Commonly asked questions about homeowner loans

If you’re thinking about applying for a loan, you’ll probably have a few questions. We’ve answered some of the most common below.

Can I move house with a homeowner loan?

Yes, you can move house while still paying off a homeowner loan. However, you’ll most likely need to pay off the outstanding loan balance. Some lenders may allow you to transfer the loan to your new property.

How much can I borrow against my home?

The maximum amount you can borrow against your home will depend on the amount of equity you hold in the house. This is determined by your home’s value and the percentage of that value the lender is willing to accept, plus any existing mortgage balance on your property. See our guide to things to consider before you apply.
