Some Pros And Cons Of Taking A Personal Loan

With inflation and the increase of costs of living in Singapore, it is not seldom to get into a cash crunch and require more cash. That is why the market for personal loans are going through the roof. Most lenders require some minimum criteria to meet before assessing how much you can afford to borrow from them. When you meet those criteria like minimum annual income, you will most probably be offered a personal loan in Singapore.

Documents that are required include your identification documents and income documents. These are to prove your residence, identity and income level as what you declare. Some times your utility bills billed to you can be used as a proof of residency. Pay slips and income tax returns are used to verify your personal income.

When you do obtain the loan, it is important to look at the penalty if you were to repay the loan before the full tenor.

To build up a good and satisfactory credit record, you should  repay the personal loan timely and promptly. Also ensure that you pay the monthly installments on time before due dates so that your credit record may be satisfactory. Failure to do so can result in adverse credit records.

Refrain from taking up personal loans for speculation.

Take a personal loan when you have a genuine need. When you do not really require the full loan quantum amount disbursed to you, you can truly consider keeping the rest of the money in a time deposit or prepay a part of the loan.

We always hear of stories of how people get ridden in debt. Personal loans are a good source of credit funds, but ensure that taking credit does not become a habit. Do not even entertain the notion of taking a loan without repaying it to the rightful lender.
