What is Central Trust?

Central Trust is part of the Norfolk Capital Group, which has been providing secured loans in the UK since 1988. You could borrow £3,000 to £250,000, secured against your home, to be repaid over 3 to 25 years. Central Trust is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.

Key features of Central Trust personal loans

  • Spread your loan over 3 to 25 years. The interest rate you pay may differ according to how much you borrow and your loan term.
  • Borrow £3,000 to £250,000. The amount you can borrow will be determined by your credit score and affordability.
  • Personal service. An advisor will call you to go through your application and you will receive regular updates.
  • Product fee. Central Trust will charge a fee of £999 for arranging your loan.
  • Fixed monthly repayments. You’ll pay the same amount each month, helping you to budget. This also means that the overall cost of the loan will be clear from the start.
  • Online account management. Make payments, apply to borrow more or inform Central Trust about any payment difficulties through your online account 24/7.
  • Repay your loan early at any time. You can make as many additional payments as you like without charge.

Am I eligible for a Central Trust homeowner loan?

You should only apply for a Central Trust homeowner loan if you’re certain you can meet the repayment terms. You must be a UK homeowner. Central Trust does not provide loans to tenants. If you jointly own the home you must apply with the other person.

Fill out the brief online application form, providing details of how much you would like to borrow and how long you will need to pay it back. You will need to give your contact information and details about your property value and mortgage. An advisor will then call you to discuss your application.
