Fairstone FAQs

What makes Fairstone different from other lenders?

With almost 100 years of lending experience in Canada and a 98.7% customer satisfaction rate*, you can feel confident you’re borrowing from a responsible lender. Whether you get a loan online or in branch, you’ll receive one-on-one service from a knowledgeable Fairstone Lending Specialist.

What’s the difference between a secured vs. unsecured loan?

A secured personal loan is backed by an asset, typically your house, giving your lender greater confidence that you’ll make loan payments on time. As a result, secured personal loans typically offer lower interest rates. At Fairstone, homeowners can also borrow more money – up to $50,000 – and choose a longer loan term with a secured personal loan.

An unsecured personal loan is backed by a written agreement or contract. At Fairstone, renters and homeowners can borrow up to $20,000 with an unsecured personal loan. No homeownership is required to take out an unsecured personal loan and there are no pre-payment penalties.
