Second charge lending, Why?

The last three years has seen second charge lending increasing in stature as homeowners become aware of the huge cost of the “pay day loan”. For many years this form of loan was something clients only did as a last resort due to the high costs compared to a re-mortgage. This has changed dramatically  recently as lenders have recognised the potential this form of lending has.

Interest rates have been reduced and are now in line with the average mortgage. Another huge plus is the low cost of setting up a second charge loan along with the speed of completion.

Who can benefit’s from second charge lending:

  • Their client is in a tie-in period and does not want to pay a large penalty
  • Their client needs funds very quickly
  • Their client is or has been in arrears with their current lender and wants to avoid disturbing their current low rate for sub-prime rate
  • They can’t get the income multiples they need for their client
  • The client has an interest only mortgage and does not wish to remortgage to capital & repayment
  • Their client is benefiting from a low SVR and does not wish to disturb their current product

Most common reasons for a second charge loan:

  • They wish to consolidate their outstanding loans and credit cards
  • They wish to carry out home improvements
  • They are looking to inject cash into their business
  • They have had adverse credit and wish to speak to a company who understand their situation
  • They are self-employed and wish to raise finance for one of the above
