Our Guide To Second Charge Lending

Share this story

2nd Charge Lending products have become increasingly popular in the current, tough lending market. Many borrowers who are still on first charge products at attractive rates are choosing to raise capital behind this as a second charge, allowing them to keep their blended interest rate lower. 2nd charge loans allow the second lender to sit behind the first charge lender, providing further funds secured against the property. 

Such 2nd charge lending products can be particularly useful for company owners who may be seeking business-related finance, and who are able to offer a property as security for a loan.  

However, securing such products can sometimes be a painful process, with a number of obstacles that need to be overcome. It requires the consent of the first charge holder, along with mortgage statements from them. There are also sometimes additional legal requirements, such as a deed of postponements, a deed of subordination and a deed of priority.  

At Albatross, we want to make the process as smooth as possible, so our in-house case management team makes direct contact with the first charge lender and supports you and your deal throughout, simplifying and speeding up the borrowing process. Our experts remain on hand to answer questions and guide you through each step.
