Second Charge Secured Loans

A second charge loan can be an effective way of of releasing equity from a property you own. They are ideal if you want to consolidate debt, complete home improvements, or as an alternative to a remortgage.

With current mortgage rates at an all time low, if you are on a low tracker or your lenders standard variable rate, then a re-mortgage may not be the most cost effective way to release capital from a property, but you are still able to capital raise with a secured loan without affecting your current mortgage rate.

What are second charge secured loans

A second charge secured loan is quite often referred to as a second charge mortgage because it is a loan secured against the available equity in a property you own. The security is usually in the form of a second charge mortgage against the property which means that it sits behind and does not affect the primary (first charge) mortgage.
