Top-up your loan with LEND
You would like to top-up your loan? Or you need a bridge loan? Did you know that you can save money doing this? More often than not you can benefit from refinancing your loan at better terms while topping it up at the same time.
Good to know, because the only constant in life is change...
You moved to your own home but finances ran short for your dream kitchen. Or you just paid your tax bill and there it is, that painful root canal. Life is full of surprises and sometimes we all need additional financial resources at very short notice - even if you have a running loan already. This could actually be an opportunity.
Save money by refinancing your loan
Most borrowers can refinance their existing loan at more favourable terms.
And with the lower interest rates you can finance the top-up. How does that work?
With a running loan you have a credit history that confirms your creditworthiness. This allows you to receive a higher loan with longer terms and lower interest rates.
While investors should diversify their risk and invest in several loans, borrowers should consolidate multiple loans with one provider. By consolidating your loans you can negotiate better terms. Also, higher loan amount help you qualify for lower interest rates. So if you are looking to increase your credit line, the timing is right. And as a positive side effect you will have one provider only that supports you with all your financing needs. This saves you money, but time and energy too.
Refinancing your loan is free of charge. This is what the law says in Switzerland. Your bank can not charge you interest for the unused portion of the loan.
Refinancing your loan is always an opportunity to negotiate a shorter loan term. This means you will be debt free earlier and at the same time save costs.
The effective interest rate is between 3.50% and 9.80% and is dependent on your credit score and selected loan term. For a loan of CHF 10’000.- and 12 months the interest cost and fees range between CHF 190.60 and CHF 515.34. The total sum is thus between CHF 10’190.60 and CHF 10’515.34. The grant of a loan is prohibited if it leads to the over-indebtedness of the consumer (Art. 3 UWG).
When you are refinancing your loan you should plan ahead: Did you include and factor in all future needs and ideas? Is your loan calculated to the penny or are you leaving a financial cushion to cover unexpected events?
Your larger projects are more likely to have additional costs that were difficult to anticipate when you started. For example, the additional bills of manufacturers if you are building a house or the winter tyres and roof box for your new car. It is good advice to have some financial flexibility in such situations. Or maybe you are paying off your credit card debt but already know that you will have to buy new furniture. Instead of paying high interest rates on your credit card, you can refinance your current debt and cover additional expenses at the same time.
