A secured loan is a second charge mortgage based on your ability to repay backed by your property asset. As an alternative to remortgaging secured loans are an increasingly popular choice, especially if you want to retain an attractive mortgage deal.

Apply for a secured loan for any purpose. Remember that you are placing your home at risk so make sure that you can afford the repayments.

Secured loans can be for larger sums and longer repayment periods compared with unsecured loans. Bank loans are still quite hard to obtain for many people, especially if they have had issues with their credit in the past.

If you’re looking to obtain credit, our secured financing can be used for a range of purposes;

  • Consolidation of existing debts, which could save you money by reducing the amount you are paying
  • Turning multiple debt payments with different lenders into one manageable monthly payment
  • To carry out home improvements, which is a great way to increase the value of your property
  • Bigger personal items such as cars or caravans can be financed using a secured loan
  • Paying for a very special occasion, such as a wedding

A secured loan uses collateral, such as your home, as security for the repayments. If repayments are defaulted on, as the borrower, you could lose your home. Secured loans are also referred to as ‘homeowner loans’ or ‘second charge mortgages’, as this type of loan ranks after your mortgage for security. Homeowner loans are regulated agreements by the Financial Conduct Authority.
Secured loans are are backed by your home so if you fail to maintain your monthly payments, your home may be at risk. Therefore lenders will often accept an application for a secured loan which they may decline for an unsecured loan. Lenders can be more flexible with secured loans and will usually offer larger sums over longer periods. Unsecured loans do not place your home at risk.

Secured loans for homeowners through Arrow Loans are available for people who are looking to borrow up to £25,000
The amount borrowed can be customised to whatever suits you best. Arrow Loans offers secured loan repayments up to 180 months (15 years), which means the loan can be repaid over a term whereby you find the monthly repayment amount affordable.
Secured loan interest rates are usually comparably lower than those of an unsecured loan. This is because secured loans can be taken out over a longer period of time. The amount of borrowing and the term length influences the interest rate.
We are committed to telling our customers about our fees. There are NO fees or costs payable before the loan is issued. When your loan is issued there will normally be an arrangement fee of up to £495 added to your loan amount. This fee will vary as it is intended to cover our costs, such as legal and valuation, on a case by case basis. The amount you repay is clearly stated on your loan quote.
