NatWest Personal Loans
Whether you’re looking to borrow some money for a big one off purchase or perhaps you are thinking of consolidating existing debt you may have been wondering if Natwest Personal Loans are the right option for you.
Natwest personal loans are unsecured this means you do not have to be a homeowner to take them out or put up any other asset as security.
NatWest personal loan features:
- Borrow between £1,000 and £25,000
- Repayment options between 1-7 years, depending on amount borrowed
Although the most Natwest will lend with a personal loan is £25,000 the actual maximum you can borrow will be influenced by your credit history and current financial circumstances, this will also affect your interest rates.
If you own property and are looking borrow a larger sum of money then a Homeowner or ‘secured’ loan might be a solution for you. In this type of loan because you set up your home or other property as a security on the loan most lenders are willing to offer you more money and for longer periods. You can typically borrow between £25,000 and £250,000 over a period of up to 30 years with a homeowner loan.
Similarly to a personal loan however your specific APR as well as how much you can borrow will be affected by your credit history as well as the value of your home and how much of its equity to possess.
Think carefully before securing other debts against your home. Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage or any other debt secured on it. If you are at all unsure of the suitability of a particular product for your circumstances you should seek independent financial advice.

Before you take out a loan.
It is important before you take out a loan that you have made sure it’s the right option for you. Consider alternatives before you decide for example; if you have any savings it might be beneficial to use these instead; as it may be that the interest you pay on a loan will be higher than any interest you earn in your savings.
There are other types of borrowing than personal and home owner loans such as authorised overdrafts and credit cards you might wish to consider.
Also if you are thinking of taking out a loan to consolidate debt understand that spreading your payments over a longer term could mean you ultimately pay more overall than you would with your existing arrangements, even if the interest rate on the new loan is less than the rates you have at the moment.
