Fast Loans - When Time Matters
By Joanne Clive
A loan, if not availed in time, fails to meet the needs of the loan seeker. A recent study indicates that many lenders are trying to target critical requirements by providing fast loans. As most loan options require extensive credit checks, the total approval time may extend up to a week or more. However, fast loans ensure speedy approval of the loan amount. For this reason, these loans are becoming more and more popular in the finance bazaar.
Fast loans are very useful in a wide variety of circumstances - critical medical condition, late examination fee, holiday expenses and other unforeseen urgencies.
The approval procedure of unsecured loans too is of swift nature due to its no collateral characteristic. Popularly called fast loans, these loans are ideal for people:
Who may not have something valuable to pledge, i.e., tenants
Who may not be willing to risk their asset, i.e., homeowners
When collateral is a part of a deal, approval system always begins with property evaluation procedure. Depending upon the value of the offered asset and other factors like past and current fiscal standing, the lender approves the application, and decides the loan terms and conditions. However, for a fast loan, only the recent fiscal credibility is evaluated.
In nutshell, it is the absence of collateral, which makes the whole difference:
Less paperwork and quick approval of the loan application
risks to the borrower’s valuables
High stakes for the lender
Fast loans are ideal for people who have imperative monetary requirements, and for those who have a small or temporary need, as security is not vital for such shot-term exigencies.
In case of repeated defaults or non-payments - accidental, circumstantial, or intentional - the lender has to approach Count Court to deal with the defaulter.
Lenders usually impose slightly high APR’s, and virtually fixed payback terms and loan conditions.
Most lenders offer an unsecured deal that has:
An amount range of £500 to £25,000;
An APR range of 7.4% to 41% Variable (typical rate is 19.9% APR Variable)
A compensation term range of 5 months to 5 years
However, a person with a good credit account may always get a better deal.
