The answers to the big second charge questions

A second charge mortgage is quite simply an additional mortgage on top of your existing first mortgage. 

Also known as a ‘secured loan’ or a ‘homeowner loan’, as the mortgage is typically secured against the equity that you already own on a property. 

It is important to keep in mind that if you take out a second charge mortgage, you will repay this at the same time as your existing mortgage and if you don’t keep up with repayments, your property will be at risk. 

Unlike some other types of finance, you can use a second charge mortgage for almost any (legal) reason. 

The most common reasons why people secure a second charge mortgage include debt consolidation, purchasing a large item like another property or car, paying for a wedding or honeymoon, home improvements, investing in a business, clearing a tax bill or paying for school or university fees.

If you have a particular reason for needing additional funds, chat to the team to check your full eligibility. 

Here’s the good news, applying for a second charge mortgage is typically a quicker process compared to getting a first charge mortgage. 

How long it will take will depend on your individual circumstances and several factors such as the lender that you choose, how much you are looking to borrow and your financial situation but the process is typically 4-6 weeks. In some cases, it can be secured faster, so it is always worth chatting to our team if you have a short deadline. 

Yes, it should be possible to get a second charge mortgage, even if you have a bad credit history. In some cases, it can actually be easier to get a second charge mortgage, than other forms of finance.

This is because the mortgage is secured against your property so viewed as a lower risk for lenders, compared to other forms of loans.

Some lenders even offer dedicated bad credit schemes and your advisor can help you find a suitable solution to find your requirements and credit history. 

If you sell your property or move, you will need to clear your second charge mortgage.

Some lenders may agree to transfer the second charge mortgage to the new property, but this will depend on the lender you choose and the terms of your mortgage. 

It is important to remember that if you do sell the property you could be liable for early repayment charges (ERCs), so it is worth discussing this with your advisor during the application process.
