Second Charge Mortgage Rates
Second charge mortgages, which are also referred to as ‘second mortgages’ as they are also a type of loan secured against your home. Provide a way for borrowers to raise money without remortgaging their existing home finance.
Second charge mortgage rates
The interest rates a borrower would be required to pay on a second charge mortgage may be higher than the rates they would have to pay on a regular mortgage of the same size. Even so, there are some instances where a second charge mortgage may work out cheaper for the borrower overall. In cases for example where a borrower may have a large early redemption fee they would need to pay to their existing mortgage lender in order to remortgage, the size of the this charge could negate the additional interest they may have on a second charge loan, making it cheaper overall.
How second charge mortgages work
Second charge mortgages are a kind of secured loan which allows borrowers to borrow additional funds secured against their home, even if they already have a mortgage. This is because the loan is secured against some of the property’s equity that is not already secured against a mortgage, the equity a borrower has in their home is the portion of it that they own out right, for instance the amount they have paid off through their monthly repayments.
The ‘second charge’ refers to the fact that this type of finance essentially has second priority behind your main mortgage provider. This means that if a borrower was to default on either their main mortgage or their second charge and either lender decided to take them to court in order repossess the property, the first charge mortgage lender would take the first priority to be repaid, any remaining money would then go to repay the second charge mortgage debt.
Before taking out a second charge mortgage
There are a range of lenders who offer second charge mortgage products, if you do decide that this kind of finance is the right choice for you then it may be wise to shop around the different providers to try and find the best product available to you, considering things such as: Annual Percentage Rate of Charge, loan durations and the total you would be expected to pay back.
For amounts of less than £25,000 borrowers may wish to consider a personal loan, this kind of loan does not require the use of an asset as security upon it.
