What’s a personal loan?

Also known as an unsecured loan, a personal loan is not secured against your property, so you don’t have to own your own home to be eligible for one.

Ocean unsecured personal loans range from £2,000 to £5,000 – the amount you can borrow, for how long, and the interest rate will depend on your personal circumstances, including your credit rating.

Can I consolidate my debts with a personal loan?

Yes, you can consolidate your debts with a personal loan. If you’re repaying multiple debts each month and are finding it a bit of a struggle, you could use a personal loan to pay off these debts, leaving you with just one manageable monthly repayment.

Bear in mind that because you’ll be repaying your debts back over a longer time period, you may end up paying more overall.

Efficient, friendly, kept in touch, took action in response to feedback from me. Excellent. Would certainly recommend them.Overall they did their best however the banks they go to for finance are so caught in red tape it is ridiculous.The process is too long if we had been asked for all the information that was finally needed we would have had our money a month earlier I think the information required to get a secured loan should be asked for once you have met all the criteria.Very friendly staff who keep you fully informed during the whole process.

Common questions

Is a personal loan secured or unsecured?

All our personal loans are unsecured. This means that they’re not secured against property, so you don’t have to be a homeowner to apply for one and your home won’t be at risk if you ever find you’re not in a position to keep up with your repayments.

Secured homeowner loans are available, which you can find out more about here.

How is a personal loan different to a homeowner loan?

An unsecured personal loan is generally for a smaller amount of money – between £2,000 and £5,000 – and they can be repaid over 2 to 4 years. Homeowner loans can be for much larger amounts of money – between £10,000 and £250,000 – and they can be repaid over a longer term too, usually 3 to 30 years.

As the name suggests, you need to be a homeowner to be eligible for a homeowner loan, which isn’t the case with a personal loan.

If you’re a homeowner, you may be able to choose between a personal loan and a homeowner loan. The choice is yours, however, you may stand a better chance of being accepted for a homeowner loan, especially if your credit rating isn’t perfect. This is because lenders have more security knowing you’re more likely to make your repayments as your property could be at risk if you don’t.

Can I get an unsecured personal loan if I have bad credit or I’ve missed payments in the past?

If your credit rating isn't perfect, it can make it harder to get a loan - but it doesn't mean it'll be impossible, as Ocean could consider you for a bad credit loan. Remember, this may carry a higher interest rate than a loan for someone with a really good credit score.

Even so, you might find there are more options available to you if you look for a homeowner loan (as long as you own your home). And it is always important to remember that your home is at risk if you do not keep up repayments on any loan secured against it.

Is a homeowner loan cheaper than a personal loan?

Homeowner loans usually do come with a lower APR, which means you’ll pay a lower rate of interest, but they’re also usually repaid over a longer time period than a personal loan, so you could pay more interest overall by the time you’ve paid it all off.
