Secured Loans FAQ’s
Who are Exclusive Loans?
Exclusive Loans is a trading name of Exclusive Finance UK ltd, we are a secured loan packager. We have the knowledge and experience to obtain, through the many lenders we have at our disposal, the most suitable loan for you and your circumstances. As a packager we deal with the lenders direct so there are no ‘middle men’ which means your loans are processed quickly and efficiently.
How much can I borrow?
Although our secured loans FAQs can’t answer this question with an exact figure ( what you may be able to borrow depends on your income and the amount of equity in your property), we in our experience you may be able to borrow any amount between £3,000 and £500,000 and repay the loan over a period from 1 year to 25 years depending on your circumstances, affordability and credit history.
What can I use my money for?
At Exclusive Finance the money can be used for any legal purpose. Some of our customers use the opportunity to clear their credit cards, store cards and other high interest borrowings, leaving themselves with just one, more manageable, monthly payment. Other customers use their cash for home improvements, perhaps a conservatory or loft conversion. Then again, we have many customers who prefer to buy a new car, pay for a luxury holiday or help with their children’s first home or college fees.
Think carefully before securing other debts against your home, Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on a mortgage or any other debt secured on it. If you are thinking of consolidating existing borrowing, you should be aware that you may be extending the terms of the debt and increasing the total amount you repay.
Do you offer a competitive interest rate?
Being in business over 8 years we have developed excellent relationships with many of the UK’s leading lenders, including subsidiaries of the main clearing banks. We’ve negotiated very competitive terms which we can pass on to our clients.
