Personal finance can be used to support or fully pay for energy efficiency measures. These measures include loft, cavity, solid wall insulation and heating.
Personal finance is subject to a credit check and an approved application. Personal Finance loans can be from £500 to £50,000. The finance provided will be unsecured with various rates and payment options available, such as buy now, pay in 12 months. The repayment period is generally between 12 and 120 months. Some finance companies offer flexible repayments enabling the customer to over pay now and again resulting in the loan being paid off sooner.
The application and purchase process is usually simple and hassle free, and where the Snug Network members offers personal credit this can be completed with your advisor after your survey. The advisor will be able to discuss all payment options available through them and interest rates in further detail.
