    Hi Mack

    Hmm..you could prob get a secured loan cheaper than that !
    Or Credit card, bank loan etc

    How much do you need ?

    Over what period ?

    Just to help us advise of other possible avenues.

      don't know if it's any use but you could try my bank manager for commercial lending he's always pretty amenable [with lloyds] pm me and i'll let you have his details if you want. sam


        Contact an independent (whole of market) mortgage broker to do the leg work for you.



          You could try zopa.com - Loans from people not banks.

          The company has been featured on the BBC's Working Lunch. Basically, zopa started off as a way for ordinary people to become money lenders!. So if you have some spare cash, then you can lend it out. The bulk money is not lent to one borrower (which is very risky), but instead spread accross lots of borrowers. E.g. if an individual has £500 to lend then this risk is spread out accross lots of borrowers e.g. £10 to 50 borrowers which spreads risk.

          My father lends money there and so far he has a good track record with people paying back, there are people who don't pay (but you should expect this). His return so far has been around 7.45% (including defaults and fees).

          mack257: you can try this system to borrow money. Do let us know how you get along!! I am keen to hear how the system works from a borrower's viewpoint!

          But bear in mind this is a "loan" rather than a mortgage!!

          I think rates vary from 9% to 13% based on your risk category.

          Good Luck!


            cant do a secured loan without a mortgage mines is all paid off.
            personal loans only go up to £15k
            my major works bill is £15k i was looking for £25-30K over 10 years
            no problem with repayments just cant find a lender
            i can go up to 8%APR


              do you know of any independent (whole of market) mortgage broker
