What is a second charge mortgage?

Second charge mortgages (sometimes just called 'second mortgages') are a type of secured loan that sits below your first mortgage. If you think of a normal residential mortgage as a secured loan on the property you are buying, then a second charge mortgage is a secured loan on the property you already have.

Second mortgages are commonly used as an alternative to remortgaging or taking out a personal loan as a method of raising money. However, if you get a second charge mortgage, you effectively have 2 mortgages to pay off - so it's important to understand the risks.


Why get a second charge mortgage?

Second charge mortgages are sometimes used as an alternative to remortgaging or getting a personal loan. There are many reasons why this may be the case, including:

  • If your credit rating is lower now than it was when you got your first mortgage. Remortgaging in this case may cause you to pay more interest on your whole mortgage.
  • If your mortgage has an early repayment fee. Early repayment fees are usuall a percentage-based fee so it will depend on the size of your existing mortgage, but it could be thousand of pounds. It might work out cheaper to get a second mortgage instead.
  • If you are finding it hard to get approved for a personal loan or other form of unsecured borrowing

What is the difference between a second mortgage and a remortgage?

Remortgaging means taking out a new mortgage for the value of your current mortgage in addition to the extra amount cash you want to borrow. So, instead of having a mortgage and a loan, you instead just have one mortgage that you've essentially extended. For some people, this makes budgeting more straightforward.

However, a second mortgage can be thought of as a homeowner loan that you have in addition to your existing mortgage. It uses the equity you have in your home as security, and essentially sits on top of your existing mortgage. While at this point you will two mortgage against your home, your first mortgage will always take precendence.


Am I elibible for a second charge mortgage?

In order to get a second charge mortgage, you do obviously need to be a homeowner, but you don't actually need to be living in the property you want to take the seocnd mortgage out on.

Bad credit isn't necessarily a roadblock to getting a second charge mortgage either. Even if you have bad credit, you may still be able to get a second charge because the lender uses your existing home as security.
