Installment loans may be either collateralized or non-collateralized. Mortgage loans are collateralized with the house the loan is being used to purchase, and the collateral for an auto loan is the vehicle being purchased with the loan. Some installment loans, often referred to as personal loans, are extended without collateral being required. Loans extended without the requirement of collateral are made based on the borrower's creditworthiness, usually demonstrated through a credit score, and the ability to repay as shown by the borrower's income and/or assets. The interest rate charged on a non-collateralized loan is usually higher than the rate that would be charged on a comparable collateralized loan, reflecting the higher risk of non-repayment that the creditor accepts.
Impact on Your Credit Score - Most Lenders do not currently report cash advance activity to any of the three major credit bureaus (Equifax, Experian or TransUnion), but may use alternative credit reporting agencies such as DataX, Mircobilt, Clarity, FactorTrust. Failure to make timely payment on your cash advances may affect your score with such agencies, and negative affect your chances to receive credit or other services from a provider that uses such agencies.
