Personal Loan Balance Transfer

Ruloans offers you various options to choose from, for a Personal Loan Balance Transfer, which allows you to take advantage of better and lower interest rates, and better loan periods of tenures. A personal loan balance transfer offers you the opportunity to transfer the total outstanding amount of your personal loan from your present lender, to a new lender of your choice who offers you better terms and conditions, and facilities to profit from such a process.

A Personal Loan Balance transfer does not require any security or collateral when you transfer personal loan from one bank to another. Your current lender will charge you a foreclosure or prepayment charge stipulated in your loan agreement. In the course of transfer, your new lender may charge processing fees and stamp duty on your loan agreement, if applicable.

If you are dissatisfied with your current lender, and your relationship does not seem right, you can choose for a host of options offered by Ruloans. However, before choosing the right alternative, evaluate the offerings based on not only interest rates, and loan tenures, but also look for hidden costs such as processing fees, and other charges that increase the cost of your personal loan. Before taking a balance transfer decision, also consider the lender's reputation and compatibility with your service expectations.
