second mortgage

If you have a fair chunk of equity in your property, you may choose to take advantage by taking out a second charge mortgage. A second mortgage, second charge or homeowner loan is a loan secured against your property. Secured loans may be ideal if you want to borrow a large amount of money. They are usually used to consolidate existing credit, to make home improvements, or to fund major purchases.

Second mortgage

moving debt

A secured loan (sometimes called a second charge) can be a cheaper alternative to a personal loan or a great way of shifting more expensive debts into a cheaper, consolidated finance product – especially if you are already happy with the rate offered by your current mortgage provider.

The debt is of course secured against the equity in your home, so it’s not without risk, but it does mean you will most likely get a more favourable rate than if you were to apply for a personal loan.

Get in touch with one of our advisers to discuss whether a second charge mortgage is right for you.
