Unsecured personal loans are the most common type of loan that is applied for in the UK. These types of personal loans require no capital or ‘security’ and are calculated on a number of factors. To find out more unsecured loan information read our ‘An Introduction To Personal Loans’ article.

Alternatively, secured loans are only available to home owners who have enough equity in their home to qualify for any lenders’ offers. Typically, secured loans amounts are up to 85% of the equity in a secured loan applicant’s home but some lenders have been known to lend at much higher, more dangerous levels.
