What is a second mortgage?

Second mortgages are loans on a property which are subordinate to the first charge mortgage (loan) on the property. In terms of repayment seniority, second mortgages are riskier for lenders which is reflected in generally higher interest rates for these type of products. In the event of a default by the borrower the first charge mortgage will be paid off first. 

Second mortgages are often known as secured loans, or homeowner loans. 

What can I use a second mortgage for?

A second charge mortgage can be used for almost any legal purpose. This will depend on the lender, but examples of what second charge lenders will accept include:

  • Home improvements
  • Home furnishings
  • Debt consolidation
  • Additional property
  • Car/Vehicle purchase
  • Medical bills
  • School fees

Who would a second charge mortgage benefit?

If you are looking to access personal finance over £40,000 and over a 5 year term then getting finance on an unsecured basis is unlikely so a second mortgage may be a better option.

If you have had previous credit issues second charge finance can be a useful alternative e.g. if you have recently changed jobs, been made redundant, or had to deal with a family illness or recently changed from a limited company to a sole trader high street lenders may not be open to you. Under these circumstances you may be eligible for second charge finance allowing you to rebuild your credit profile and opening the door to the option of high street finance in the future.

How do I get a second mortgage?

Different lenders have different criteria but some general rules of thumb are:

  • You need to have an existing mortgage in place 
  • You will need sufficient equity in your property - typically a second charge lender will not lend based on the loan you are looking for over 90% LTV taking into account the existing first mortgage.
  • Your credit history will be a factor. Lenders take different views on previous credit blips so talk to us for futher information
  • Location - where you live in the UK may determine whether you can raise finance on a second charge basis
