How does a second mortgage work?

There are a few routes you can go down when looking at getting a second property mortgage and we will help you to discover the perfect one. If you decide to keep your main residence and get a new separate mortgage on another property, then you will have two mortgages that run alongside each other, and you will be expected to pay both per month.

Mortgage lenders who offer second home mortgages will determine how much they will be willing to lend you for your second house mortgage by considering things like your current residential mortgage payments and monthly property running costs as monthly commitments.

When buying a second home, you’ll also be liable to paying an extra amount of stamp duty on top of the standard amount that you’ll need to discuss with a legal professional.
