A secured bad credit loan is a personal loan that assists people who have a bad credit history and they own an asset (such as a vehicle) that they offer as security for the loan. Being able to offer security for a bad credit loan can improve the likelihood of getting the loan approved and can result in a lower interest rate and higher loan amount, compared to an unsecured loan.
What Can I Use As Security For A Secured Bad Credit Loan? Generally, the types of security you can use are those that can be registered and can have an interest recorded against it. This includes such items as:
- Cars (both new and used)
It is important to understand that when providing security for a bad credit loan, it cannot already have a loan against it. For it to be acceptable, you must own the security outright and not have any existing debt against it.
