Tips for getting the best Personal Loan:

  1. Apply for a Personal Loan Online through a personal loan broker, by completing the online application. This is best for fast loans, because you are then informed as to the correct documentation that is required for either unsecured personal loans or secured personal loans. Make sure when you are completing the online personal loan application that you answer all of the questions, and honestly, otherwise your personal loan broker will not be able to help you with your personal loan application.
  2. Next Collect all the required documentation, that you are asked for by your personal loan broker, and send this off to them as soon as possible. Cheapest personal loans are often not possible because the personal loan broker has not got all of the information required. This is especially important for bank loans, and fast personal loans.
  3. Find a personal loan can get you with the cheapest personal loan but you must be accurate and quick responding to the requests from your personal loan broker. Personal loans in Victoria, or a car loan in Victoria is possible with an online personal loan. Cheapest personal Loans in Australia and especially Bank loans are also possible with an online personal loan.
  4. The Information you supply must be accurate, and detailed. Do not try to hide anything from your personal loan broker, because the Lender will always find out the facts, and then decline the loan because the information you have supplied in your personal loan application does not match up with the facts, and they then assume there is some thing else missing from your application. So the best advice is to tell your personal loan broker everything, accurately.
  5. Always disclose the liabilities you have, even if they are in joint names. This is the single biggest reason for personal loans being declined. Undisclosed credit is easy to verify from the lenders point of view, so when you are completing your application for personal loans, do not leave any credit you have undisclosed.

Car loans are probably the biggest type of personal loan asked for, and the personal loan type is often secured personal loans and not unsecured personal loans, that is to say the car will be used as security against the loan.

What will the interest rate be on my loan?
Personal Loan Brokers do not lend you the money, therefore they do not determine the rate.

They work for you to find which Bank, Credit Union or Finance Company will be lending you their money. As such, the lenders determine the interest rate themselves and let the brokers know what it will be when they give "unconditional" approval for your loan.

It is fair to say however, that our panel have access to the most competitive rates in the market place and can and do negotiate with lenders on your behalf to get the best deal possible...

How do lenders determine what interest rate to charge me?
All lenders operate the same way, lending money based on the assessment of risk.

The best rate will be determined by the strength of your application.

Every piece of information earns points giving a total score at the end. For example if you are a home owner you will score more points than someone who is renting, although the person renting will score extra points if they have been at the same address for a long period. The same applies to employment, credit defaults and the list goes on.

All of the information can be verified by the lender, or you may be asked to provide verification, so it is vitally important to provide accurate information.

Conflicting information can result in your loan being declined.

Your broker is there to help as they check all the information before they submit it to the lender...

What are the repayments going to be if I apply for a personal loan?

This estimate is an indication only, and will vary depending on your specific circumstances...

Personal loans are for personal use.

That is to say the money must be for wholly or predominantly for personal or domestic use.

Personal loans can not be taken out for business uses; such as starting a business, stock for a business, cars for business use etc.

Secured Personal Loans

Secured lending is where the financier agrees to advance the money to the customer for the purchase but takes a "goods mortgage"; that is to say a "Bill of Sale" or "security" over the item; namely the car.

Vehicles are the most common item that is "secured against"; next to a house and is often referred to as a "car loan".

As the vehicle in this case is going to be "used" as security, there needs to be a way of ascertaining its value.

A dealer for example will have a price on the car, it will be advertised for a different price, and after negotiation with the customer, a third price will generally be agreed upon. This final agreed price; is also called, its "TRUE MARKET VALUE".

However there is a standard that is adopted by financiers; and in typical tradition, there is more than one standard; but mostly the value that a financier will put on a vehicle ( used ) is found in a book called "GLASSES GUIDE", and is also available on-line by subscription.

The other main guide is the "RED BOOK".

The term used is "booking the car".

Your PERSONAL LOAN Broker will be able to "book" the car for you, letting you know if you are getting a good deal; or not for the car loan.

Both these guides represent a nation wide average of sales on different vehicles, gained from gathered data, from government motor vehicle agencies, auction houses, etc.

It represents a national guide as to what the vehicles are being bought for, traded in for, and sold for in retail, trade and wholesale situations.

Financiers generally take the "middle of the road value"; or trade value, as the value they will lend against, however this is a guide only, as the overall profile of the Customer is considered, and forms part of Nigel Brookson's 6 'C' of Credit Assessment.

The sole purpose of the loan is the motor vehicle that is being purchased, i.e. a car loan, and there can not be any 'extra money on top' for anything else.

Unsecured Personal Loans

Unsecured lending is the financier agreeing to advance the money to a customer for the purchase but takes no security over the item.

An "Unsecured Personal Loan" is where the Financier will lend money for any "worthwhile personal purpose", but take no security.

Examples are stereo equipment, holidays, and debt consolidation (i.e. non tangible items).

Cars can be funded secured or unsecured, depending on the profile of the Customer, and the money can be used to make several purchases, or for several reasons. An example could be consolidating 2 credit cards; which total $10,000, a car for $20,000 and a holiday for $5,000. The total loan amount would in this example be $35,000, and no security would be taken if the loan was approved unsecured.

Because of the greater risk, un-secured financiers do not like adverse credit, however paid small telecommunication type defaults are generally excused.

In situations of Customers wanting to consolidate debt, like combining personal loans and credit cards, the payment history on them must be good for the last 3 months for the cards, and 6 months for the loans.

That is to say, the statements show no late or overdue payments, and the credit card has not gone over the limit.

Banks seldom take on another Banks bad debt.

It may be possible however to get an amount of money to pay off these debts as long as there is some 'good credit' that is being consolidated.

Sometimes it may be possible to receive an approval for a personal loan for say a holiday; where the Financier takes security over a car for example; that is not currently under finance.

Your Personal Loan Broker can guide you to what is, and what is not going to be possible.
