Frequently asked questions

What is a second mortgage loan?

A second mortgage is a type of secured loan on your property. It’s a mortgage that’s registered on top of your existing mortgage, although you don’t have to use the same lender for a second mortgage loan. The equity in your property is used to secure the loan, which often allows you to borrow more than you can through a personal loan, and the interest rates tend to be low.

How do second mortgage loans work?

Second mortgages are secured against your property, but they don’t affect your original mortgage. If you’ve built up equity in your home, you can apply for a second mortgage loan, which can be an affordable way to borrow money. However, it can be tricky to get a second mortgage, because it’s seen by lenders as a higher risk than your first one, so Universal Finance have put together a panel of lenders who offer these sorts of products. This allows you to find a lender that caters to your needs.

What are second mortgage loan requirements?

There is usually a maximum LTV (loan to value) amount that can be borrowed against your property. This means that when both mortgages are added together, they need to be less than 85% of the value of your property. This is because lenders don’t want you to be overstretched and borrow too much against your home. Universal Finance don’t require credit checks, financials or tax returns, as your property is the collateral for the loan, you just fill in our simple application and we’ll tell you what paperwork we need.

What’s the minimum deposit for a second mortgage?

You don’t need to raise a deposit or down payment to take out a second mortgage loan on your property, as you will have already put this down for your first mortgage. If you use Universal Finance to find a second mortgage, we don’t ask for any upfront fees either, and you should be wary of any lender who asks for a deposit or cash upfront for this kind of product.

Is it difficult to get second mortgage for second home?

Second mortgages can often be taken out on second homes, provided you have enough equity to borrow against. If you have the expense of more than one property, you should make sure you aren’t too financially stretched by taking on a second mortgage, and that the repayments are affordable. Taking out a second mortgage loan on a second home can be an excellent way to access money when you need it, and you can still enjoy low interest rates.

What’s the maximum I can borrow with a second mortgage?

The amount you can borrow for your second mortgage will depend on the current value of your property and how much of your first mortgage you’ve already paid off. In general, lenders won’t want the first and second mortgage combined to take you over 85% of the home’s value, otherwise, it becomes a risky investment for them and can leave you overstretched.
