Personal loans

Personal loans are loans taken out to cover personal or household purchases rather than purchases for a business. For example, if your fridge freezer or washing machine breaks down unexpectedly and you don’t have the money saved to buy a replacement, you may decide to apply for a personal loan.

What is a personal loan?

Many personal loans are unsecured which means you’re not borrowing the money against the value of one of your possessions. Repayments are usually made as fixed instalments over a pre-agreed time.

When you take out a personal loan, you are required to pay interest on the loan and there may also be additional fees. Some loans have fixed interest rates which stay the same for the term of your loan, whilst others have variable rates, meaning the rate can change.

It is important that you understand what rate you are being offered and how much you will be required to pay back before you agree to any loans.

Personal loans can be used for a variety of things; however, you should avoid taking a loan out for unnecessary purchases. If your purchase is not urgent, save the money instead so you don’t have to pay interest or fees.

Advantages of a personal loan

Personal loans are usually quite straightforward. Once you have been accepted, you receive the money in a lump sum and then you make the repayments over the term agreed when taking out the loan.

Because the repayments are usually a fixed amount, you know exactly how much you will have to pay each week or month which makes it easier to budget.

Disadvantages of a personal loan

Interest rates on personal loans can be higher than on other types of credit, especially if you have a poor credit rating. Some companies have a minimum loan amount which means you could end up borrowing more than you need.

Applying for a personal loan

  • Only apply for a loan for purchases you really need
  • Do your research to find the most suitable loan for you
  • Look for fixed-rate loans if you don't want the interest rate to change
  • Check the interest rates, fees and APR before you apply
  • Check if there are any late payment fees
  • Make sure you understand the terms of the loan and any fees before you sign an agreement
  • Don't be afraid to ask questions if you do not understand the terms
  • Only apply for loans from a reputable company
  • Make sure you can afford to repay the loan
  • Don't borrow more than you need
