Lloyds TSB loan calculator
While there is no longer a Lloyds TSB loan calculator, both Lloyds and TSB offer loan calculators for their individual offerings which you could use to help you decide if you wanted to apply for a loan from either of them. However remember that with most online calculators the quotes they provide are only estimates based on the lenders Representative APR. When you actually apply to borrow from any lender they will normally want to review your credit score and financial circumstances before they calculate what APR they could offer you specifically.
Loans can be long term commitments usually taking at least a year to pay off so it’s important you try and get the best deal you can. You can use the comparison table above to find loans from different providers
Types of Loan
- Personal Loans - Also known as unsecured loans are a type of loan that typically allows you to borrow up to £25,000 over a variable time period. Generally speaking the larger amount you wish to borrow the lower the rate of interest, however this does not mean you should take out a larger loan you cannot afford to service or repay. Personal loans are also known as ‘unsecured’ loans, this is because you do not need to put an asset such as your home as a security on them. As the lender requires no security they are taking a greater risk than say with a secured loan. In this respect lenders will often have strict lending requirements. These requirements may mean unsecured loan rates are only offered to those with good credit records; loans may be for shorter time periods and there may be inflexibility about repaying your loan off early.
- Homeowner loan If you want to borrow a larger sum and you own property then a homeowner loan might be an option for you. As with this type of loan the lender requires you place an asset (such as your home or other property) as security on the loan, they are usually willing to lend more, typically up to a maximum of £250,000. The actual amount you can borrow however will be dependent on the value of the property and how much equity in it you have, as well as your personal financial circumstances such as annual earnings and credit history.
