Secured Loans

A secured loan, also known as a homeowner loan or second charge mortgage, is a type of borrowing where your home or investment property is used as security against the loan amount. This type of loan sits behind your existing first charge mortgage debt and allows you to release some of the available equity.

Why Opt for A Secured Loan?

Secured loans offer a way to borrow additional funds by using your property as security without affecting your existing mortgage. Secured loans are ideal for those locked into a product with early repayment charges, those wishing to retain a favourable mortgage rate with their current lender, or those who are unable to raise additional funds from their existing lender. These loans offer a long-term solution for financing major expenses like home improvements, debt consolidation, or purchasing a second home. Our team will guide you through the ins and outs of secured loans, ensuring you secure a deal that works for you.

Leveraging Your Home Equity: Secured Loan Benefits

Secured loans can be an effective financial tool for many purposes and offer several key advantages:

Higher Borrowing Amounts

Because the lender is securing a charge on a property, you can borrow more money than you could via an unsecured facility such as a personal loan or credit card.

Enhanced Affordability Checks

Secured loan providers tend to have more generous loan-to-income multiples than standard mortgage lenders. They can typically stretch your income, leading to higher loan amounts being available.

Longer Repayment Periods

Secured loans usually offer longer repayment terms than an unsecured loan, spreading the cost over time and potentially making repayments more manageable.

Debt Repayments

Secured loans are often used to consolidate existing debts into a single, more manageable loan.
