If you are a property owner and in need of finance but struggling to obtain a mortgage, we can help. In this case, we can look at the option of a secured or "second charge" loan. This is similar to any other "first charge" mortgage in many ways; however the criteria for secured loans is usually more flexible than for conventional mortgages, and they can fulfill requirements that may not be feasible on a first charge basis.
Although you will need to own a property, it isn't required that you reside there. You can apply for a secured loan using either your 'buy to let' or residential property. You simply use your property's equity or residential value for security so you will essentially have two mortgages. By equity, we mean anything which you outright own, so your property's value minus any outstanding mortgage payments.
As a second charge loan is secured against property, you may be offered improved rates over unsecured loans options and have a far more attractive choice to make. So if you have been disheartened by what is available on the unsecured market, a second charge loan could be the perfect solution. Often, self-employed people or those with a poor credit history but whom have made improvements to their circumstances, choose this type of loan.
It could be that you are very happy with your current mortgage deal and wish to use funds for personal reasons, such as your child's education, improving your home, or debt consolidation.
It may be that your credit rating has worsened since taking our first mortgage and remortgaging could result in you paying more interest, as opposed to just on the finance that you're seeking to borrow. A second charge loan may well make more financial sense in this case.
Or you may wish to continue with an appealing lifetime tracker mortgage while seeking funds for other projects.
