Can I get a secured loan if I have bad credit?
Yes, a secured loan could be an option for you if you’ve got a poor credit history. A secured loan may even be easier to obtain than other types of loan if your credit rating isn’t perfect. That’s because the lender has the extra security of the loan being secured against your home. This means you’ll be seen as less of a risk to lend to.
Keeping up with your repayments could also help you to improve your credit rating over time.

Is a secured loan the same as a mortgage?
A mortgage is a type of secured loan, they’re only available to homeowners - you can only get a secured loan if you own your own property.
If you’re not a homeowner, you may be eligible for a personal loan.
How does a secured loan work?
Like all loans, once you have the money, you simply repay your lender in fixed monthly repayments. With a secured loan, your home is used as security against any missed payments. So, if you find you can’t repay the loan, your home could be sold to make up for it. That’s why you should only ever take out a secured loan if you’re confident you’ll be able to pay it back every month.
Will a secured loan damage my credit rating?
No, if you make your repayments on time each month, it could actually help to improve your credit history over time.
That’s because borrowing money and paying it back on time reflects well on your credit history.
