Feel free to use our interactive secured loan calculator. Before deciding to apply for a loan some homeowners find it useful to understand the approximate cost of borrowing in terms of the monthly cost and the interest which is being charged. This is especially useful for homeowners who work to a monthly budget by knowing what their outgoings are such as household bills and mortgage payments versus income received.
To use the loan calculator simply enter the amount you wish to borrow and select a repayment period using the drop down menu. Then enter the interest rate and press the calculate button. The results are calculated using the generic compound interest formulae and show the monthly repayment and the monthly interest charged by the lender. For comparison purposes, which some find useful, an alternative monthly repayment figure is displayed below assuming an interest rate of 5.5% is charged.
Remember, this online calculator tool should be used as a guide only and some lenders will often build in Payment Protection Insurance or (PPI) in addition to possible secured loan application fees. Therefore, the actual monthly repayment amount in reality could be higher.
