Secured Loans can help You…

Did you know the equity you build in your property can be used to increase your wealth? At ALC you can use this equity to buy a 2nd property, get a loan for a holiday or even refinance so you are paying a lower interest rate! Even if you have poor or bad credit we can work with you to get a secured loan that is right for you.

What is a secured loan?

If you to need to borrow a large amount of money, require a long loan term (over 5 years) or you have bad credit, then lenders are most likely to offer you a secured loan. This type of loan is great because it provides you with the opportunity to gain finance when you otherwise might not be able to get it. Perhaps you are looking to purchase a new car or finance home renovations. Secured loans provide you with the opportunity to do just this.

While secured loans provide you with a great opportunity to receive finance, better rates and more flexible loan terms, there are some factors which must be taken into consideration. When applying for a secured loan, it is important to note that in order to obtain the finance, you will be required to provide a personal asset as collateral. This means that if you fail to abide by the terms of the loan agreement, for example by continually missing repayments, then the lender has the right to seize the asset.

Before legally seizing the asset, the lender must give you prior warning and notice, so you have the opportunity to honour the terms of your agreement and repay what you owe to avoid any seizure of assets.

Are You Struggling with a secured Loan?

If you do find yourself struggling to keep up with repayments then there is still room for negotiation. The Australian Lending Centre cares about its clients and always look at asset seizure as a last resort. First, we can look to refinance your loan, or even consider debt negotiation to try to find a more manageable solution to help you pay off your debt. Just like with any loan, make sure to budget carefully and be careful not to fall behind on repayments otherwise the consequences can be terrible. From bad credit to having your asset used as collateral repossessed, always keep on top of your debts. If you need debt help then click here.

What assets may I be required to use as collateral?

Personal assets which can be used to secure a loan could include your house, car, or even jewellery. It is also worth noting that you will rarely be able to borrow more than the asset for which you provide as collateral is worth. So, if you need to borrow $10,000 but the asset you provide is jewellery worth $5,000 then you may have to add more valuable assets, or reduce the loan amount.

In some cases, for example if you need finance for a house or car, you can use the asset for which you are borrowing money for as the collateral item.

If you are looking to borrow money for the mortgage on a new home, then you can use this property as your security.

What is an unsecured Loan?

Unsecured loans do not require any personal assets to be used as collateral to secure a loan. This means that while your risk to the borrowers goes up, the risk for you is minimal. If you fail to keep up with repayments and default on your loan agreement then you will not have any assets seized. However, your credit rating will still suffer, and you could end up being taken to court if you continually fail to comply with the agreed loan terms.

Because this form of loan is of greater risk to lenders, usually interest rates, additional fees, loan amounts and loan term lengths are far less favourable than that of a secured loan. Without a very good credit score it is highly unlikely that you will be approved an unsecured loan. If your credit score is good then lenders will have more trust in you to honour the agreement and will be more likely to approve your loan application.

What Sort Of Loans Are Unsecured?

Unsecured loans usually come with lower loan amounts, meaning these are best suited for things such as holidays, small home improvements, dental work and car repairs.

With an unsecured loan, you will still need to agree to a repayment contract, just as you would with a secured loan. This involves the repayment amount, length and interest rate associated with your loan. You are expected to honour this agreement, just as you would any other form of legally binding contract. Personal loans, credit cards and student loans are the most common forms of unsecured loans.

Pat was extremely compassionate and understanding, although theres not that can be done in my visa status, Pat went above and beyond to find a solution. I really want to thank Pat for bringing back a smile on my face by shedding light on my situation. Give that man a raise!

First time ever hearing or dealing with Australian Lending Centre and I can say, they’re probably the best staff I’ve ever had the pleasure of speaking with, especially my consultant Pat. He wasn’t just friendly but patient, understanding and very honest and that helped me a lot. Not sugar coating anything but allowing me to be honest and he was also honest with his responses clarifying reasons why and also honest with the outcome that was available to me. I initially wanted to get a consolidation debt loan but wasn’t able to due to the criteria of the lenders that I wasn’t eligible for however he offered me another solution that might be available to me, and this really made me happy. That there isn’t just one solution and that I wasn’t going to be turned away just like I had been by various lenders. I am very happy with Pat’s customer service, he was genuine and didn’t judge me with my credit history or circumstances which people in the financial industry do do sometimes but he didn’t. That means a lot.

Kathleen was absolutely amazing! Professional, easy, friendly & quick to get results.
Before I made the phone call I was depressed & embarrassed and didn’t know what to do about my stressful financial debt.
I’d spoken to around 4 other loan consolidation companies and they were no help.
I was loosing motivation & very confused but decided to make one last phone call to try and get help to fix my current financial mess.
Thank goodness I called & spoke to Kathleen!
By the end of the call a weight has been lifted off my shoulders and I no longer felt stressed.
I couldn’t believe that I actually felt excited and in control of my finances for the first time in a longtime.
Thank you so much Kathleen & team for helping me.
Now I’m no longer so stressed I can be a better Mother & enjoy life more with my peace of mind finally given back to me.
Thank you Kathleen!
