Types Of Personal Loan

Personal Loans of all types can save many of us during the rough spots in our lives. Personal loans are used to meet the expenses such as home improvements, wedding, purchase of a vehicle or any appliances, children’s education, luxury holiday etc.

Unsecured Personal Loan

Unsecured loans are the loans which are provided by financial institution without any collateral security, this means that there is no risk on owned property. A loan — one without collateral — for the same amount is not as safe for the lender. Because of this, the lender charges higher interest rates to balance out the greater risk. Even though the interest rates on personal loans are higher than those of secured loans, personal loan interest rates are usually still lower than credit card rates — at least after the initial teaser rates.

Bad Credit Personal Loan

This Kind Of Personal Loan is the best option when one is stuck in a bad credit situation. Specially designed for people with blotted credit history, this loan option gives them the opportunity to get out of the financial crisis and improve their credit history too, but at higher interest rate and a very stringent repayment plan.

Loan Tenure

Loan Tenure is the period within which the applicant wants to repay the loan .Loans can be repaid from 1 year to 7 years.

The rule of the thumb being longer the tenure higher would be the loan eligibility and vice versa. The age of the applicant along with period of service left also influences the loan tenure.

Service charges, loan processing charges, bank charges are various ways of describing the fees which the bank charges for processing and disbursing loans. It is deducted directly from the Personal Loan amount and is generally restricted to 1% to 3 % of the Personal Loan amount. It is a one time fee.

Banks charge borrowers with prepayment fee when they pay the loan EMIs before the tenure which normally is between 2-5% of the outstanding loan amount.
