Looking to Get a Secured Loan?

Second Charge Mortgage Advice

Secured Loans, or to give them their official title, Second Charge Mortgages used to be known as last-resort lending. They tend to be applied for by applicants who, for some reason, cannot or choose not to apply for a normal First Charge Mortgage.

Secured loans are far more popular now as the rates on offer are much lower than previously available.

If you need to raise money against your property, there are 3 main options:

  1. A further advance from your current Lender. 
  1. Take our remortgage advice, to move to a new Lender.

Please be aware that if you do add fees to the mortgage you will pay additional interest. 

You will also end up paying more interest back if you extend the term of any debts you are considering consolidating. If you are securing debts that are currently unsecured you are putting your home at risk if you do not keep up the repayments.
