What Types of Homeowner Loans Are There?

There are numerous of different types of homeowner loans to choose from, helping to meet the varied needs of different borrowers.

Whilst you might think a homeowner loan has to be secured with a property, there are actually a diverse range of unsecured financial products, that favour homeowners due to their credit-worthy credentials.

Below is a list with some of the main types of loans available for homeowners:

  • Secured loans
  • Unsecured loans 
  • Equity release 

Perhaps the most common type of homeowner loan, a secured loan works by the borrower securing a valuable asset on the loan (e.g. a house). This will act as collateral if the borrower cannot keep up with repayments.

Secured loans differ drastically from unsecured loans, which by definition do not require a valuable asset to be secured as collateral for if the borrower defaults. With an unsecured loan, successful applicants will have to have provide the lender with assurance that the loan will be paid back in other ways.

This often includes having a good credit history, which can be built up by keeping up with monthly repayments on other loans, mortgages and bills etc. Lenders will tend to find security in the fact that the borrower is a homeowner, as this means they have already been through a rigorous application process, and are used to keeping up with monthly repayments.

Homeowners are also eligible for equity release, provided they are over the age of 55. With this type of loan, homeowners free up some of the equity held in their house to be spent on various different things. It can be a great option for those who are wanting to free up some cash whilst planning to stay living in their homes long-term.


Key Features of a Homeowner Loan

Whilst homeowner loans can come in a variety of different shapes and sizes, our lenders often have a few of the same key features for these types of loans, including the following:

  • Loan amounts of £5,000 to £2,500,000
  • Loan periods of 1 to 35 years
  • Used for home improvements, debt consolidation and more

For secured homeowner loans, it’s important to note that the security of your valuable asset (most likely your property) will be at risk if you cannot keep up with repayments.

Our lenders accept a range of different properties, including houses, flats and bungalows. It’s always best to check whether your type of property will be accepted to act as security for the loan before making an application.
