Decoding the Distinction
Second Charge Mortgages vs. Remortgages?
While often mistaken for being the same, second charge mortgages and remortgages are fundamentally different financial tools.
In the realm of remortgages, the existing mortgage is replaced entirely with a new one, be it through the same lender or a new one. This option suits many, yet for those already benefiting from a favorable fixed-rate agreement, remortgaging might not be as cost-effective as desired.
Enter the second charge mortgage, tailored for such scenarios. This alternative empowers you to borrow a specific sum against the equity you already possess in your property, without the need for a comprehensive remortgaging endeavor.
Is a second charge mortgage right for you?
For many individuals, opting for a second charge mortgage can prove more cost-effective than pursuing a remortgage, particularly if your existing mortgage carries early repayment penalties that would be incurred upon transitioning.
Your current mortgage holds a low interest rate, and remortgaging might result in a higher rate.
Prepayment Penalty Impact
Your current mortgage incurs significant early-repayment fees, leading to higher payoff costs.

Everything You Need to Know Before You Apply for a Second Charge Mortgage.
How does it work?
Tailored to homeowners like yourself, a second charge mortgage is a secure loan crafted to meet your needs. By utilizing the equity you own in your property, these mortgages empower you to borrow additional funds.
Rest assured, your existing mortgage remains unaffected. Commonly referred to as ‘home equity loans’, second charge mortgages are entirely independent from your original mortgage, leaving your repayments unaffected.
How much can you borrow?
As a rule of thumb, you can borrow more money with a second charge mortgage than a personal loan. In fact, with your home as collateral, you can borrow up to the total amount of equity you have in your property. This could be anywhere from £10,000 all the way up to £10,000,000, depending on the value of your home and how much of it you own outright.
Use our loan calculator to get a quick idea of how much you could borrow and how much your monthly repayments might be.
Will you be approved?
As with most loans, lenders will check your credit history, credit score, and personal circumstances to decide if you qualify when you apply.
However, because you’re borrowing against the value of your property, lenders will also want to know the value of your home, how much you have left to pay on your mortgage and the details of any other homeowner loans you may have secured on the property.
Luckily, we’ve built up relationships with lots of lenders to find out if you’ll be approved before you apply, keeping your credit score safe and secure.
How do you pay my second charge mortgage back?
One of the great things about second charge mortgages is that you can spread the cost over up to 35 years. That means that you’ll be able to lower your monthly repayments and make things more affordable if you need to.
Once you’ve decided how long you want to repay the loan over, your repayments will be collected automatically every month via Direct Debit.

We were introduced to Carl through a mutual friend, who had worked with him prior to him setting up his own company Manuka mortgages. Our initial enquiry and dealings began early in 2022 as we were at the fact finding stage and needed some advice.
Some months later we got back in touch with Carl as we were ready to push the button on a house.
Carl is a delight to work with, he is friendly and approachable (unlike other brokers I have worked with in the past!) he is throughly professional and extremely efficient. We have no hesitation in recommending his services.
— Stephen B. (Homeowner)
I cannot recommend Carl enough! Absolutely fantastic from the start to the finish of us purchasing our house! We are self employed which made it slightly more difficult but nothing was too much trouble, no matter the time of day Carl was there to put our mind at rest and give us great advice. He was honest from the start about all our options and really did his best to help. We will definitely be using Carl again when we remortgage. Such a lovely yet professional man who will absolutely do his best for you!
— Courtney (Homeowner)
I wanted to get a new mortgage with a more competitive rate of interest and was advised to try Manuka Money by a friend. I am so glad I did! The process was painless and quick, with everything laid out in easy to understand terms.
My options and needs were discussed in detail and I can't fault Manuka Mortgages for a single thing. Not only were all options spelled out for me, I was given first hand accounts of experience with each company and advised on the basis of that who would be best to go for. The entire time I was speaking to the same person, I did not feel like I was being passed from pillar to post but was given a bespoke experience.
I will recommend this company to absolutely anyone who asks me for mortgage advice.

Think carefully before securing other debts against your home. Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage or other debt secured on it.
If you are thinking of consolidating existing borrowing, you should be aware that you may be extending the terms of the debt and increasing the total amount you repay.
