What is a line of credit?

A line of credit is the most flexible way to get funds when you need them.

Once approved, you can use your line of credit, up to your authorized limit, as you want. So you don’t need to get a loan every time you need funds.

Personal Line of Credit
  • A Personal Line of Credit is unsecured, meaning you do not need to secure it with an asset like your home.
  • Since a Personal Line of Credit is unsecured, your interest rate will typically be higher than a home equity line of credit.
  • You do not need any other Cambrian products (like a mortgage) to qualify for a personal line of credit.
Home Equity Line of Credit
  • A Home Equity Line of Credit is secured by your home. So you can get a higher limit, up to 80% of the value of your home.
  • Since this line of credit is secured by your home, your interest rate will typically be lower than a personal line of credit or loan.
  • You need to have your mortgage with Cambrian to qualify for our Home Equity Line of Credit.

Simplify your life with credit that’s available when you need it.

Your line of credit is in your account, ready to be used when you decide to use it. Since you don’t need to talk to your advisor before tapping into it, you have the freedom to decide when and how to use of your line of credit.

Save on interest with a line of credit.

With a line of credit, you only pay interest on the amount you use, at a lower interest rate than a credit card.  This makes a line of credit a great option for quick access to funds, short term financing needs or covering unexpected expenses.

At Cambrian, we keep our lending rates among the lowest in our local market to save you money.

Top 3 things to know about a line of credit

1. Understand your borrowing needs

Before applying for a line of credit, determine the amount you would need by estimating when & how you will use it.  

If you own your home, consider using the equity in your home (value of your home minus what you owe) to qualify for a Home Equity Line of Credit at a lower interest rate.

2. You only pay interest on your balance

With a line of credit, you only use the amount you need, when you need it. This also means you only pay interest on the amount you use.

3. Save time

You can apply for a line of credit online, meet with an advisor via video and sign your documents electronically. No need to step foot in a branch.
