What Is A Second Charge Mortgage?

A second charge mortgage is specifically designed to help borrowers with additional funding by securing funding against a property that already has existing borrowing against it from a different lender who has the first charge.  


After a 'second charge' is complete, there are two lenders with charges against the property

Accelerated Finance is able to source second-charge mortgages for both residential and commercial assets in the UK. 

Two Benefits of a Second Charge Mortgage 

Here are two reasons why investors and developers opt for a Second Charge Mortgage

1.  When There Are Complex Requirements 

Traditional High Street lenders in many cases have a tick-box criterion to which they adhere. 


Second Charge Loans can be more flexible, meaning they are individually tailored to your current situation. 


2.  Fast Finance To Utilise Existing Equity. 

Mainstream finance can sometimes take months to organise and release funds. The great benefit with second charge finance is you can use your current asset without having to exit and pay fees to your existing lender. 

You will have the freedom to use the extra funds to raise for further property or pursue other business ventures.

Can I Still Apply For A Second Charge If I Have Bad Credit/Adverse Credit?

We work with specialist lenders who look at the whole picture and will take a view on the property, individual circumstances and exit strategy.
