    A silly question but you aware of the risks involved with a secured loan.

    Have you tried compare the market, moneysupermarket.com or gocompare ?

    They compare whats on offer just like with insurance.

    So how long have you been with your bank, and can you not wait until the balance of 3 months has elapsed?
