A second charge mortgage, sometimes called a secured loan can be a good option if you’d like to borrow money while leaving your current mortgage in place. This new loan is secured on your property and is available for many different purposes.
It can for example, allow you to avoid the cost associated with a re-mortgage; an option taken by many customers who are unaware of the second charge market.
