How Much Can I Borrow?
Borrowing money with a homeowner loan can be an effective way to obtain some larger amounts of finance on a decent interest rate and give you the ability to spread the payments over a long or short period of time. The minimum you can borrow is £3,000 and the shortest time you can take it out over is 3 years, or 36 months. However you can pay the loan back early at any time if you are able and will normally just pay one or two months interest plus the capital outstanding. At the other end of the scale loans for homeowners can be as large as £200,000 and repayment periods can go to as long as 25 years to suit your cash flow. As a matter of interest our average homeowner loan ranges between £15,000 and £25,000 with a term of around 7 to 9 years
Most importantly you need to make sure that you are in a position to afford such a significant financial outlay. In other words we should only borrow what we can afford to repay. The lenders feel the same way and homeowner loans are no different from any other mortgage or secured loan in that they have criteria in place to determine if the loan is affordable, and how much you might be able to borrow. Such criteria often includes these main components:
The loan to value (ltv) of the arrangement
The age of the applicant / applicants
The total income of those taking out the homeowner loan
How much you are still going to be paying on other bills if you go ahead
These and other factors will have an affect on how much money you can borrow. Not only that but we want you to be as prepared as possible when determining what you can borrow and what you can afford. There are various calculators from the calculator tab on this site that can help you get a feel for the figures involved. For example use our debt consolidation calculator to help you see what your cashflow could look like if you decide to utilise a consolidation loan to get back on top of your finances.
Homeowner Loans Explained
Homeowner loans, also referred to as second charge, second mortgage or secured loans, are loans that you borrow from a lender who uses your property as security for the loan. Your property, whether it is a second home, a buy to let property or your residential property acts as security for the loan, provided that there is enough equity in the property to cover the amount owed on the loan, if you default on it. Homeowner loans can be taken out on most types of livable property as long as you own them. If you do not keep up with the repayments on the loan, it is within the lenders rights as a last resort, to repossess the property.
Homeowner loans normally sit behind whatever existing mortgage you have on the property, as a completely separate charge. As they are a separate charge all together you do not have to obtain enough money to cover the existing mortgage, as long as you have enough equity available in your property the loan will effectively be added on to what you owe on the property not joined in the same charge. A homeowner loan can typically fund from £3,000 to £200,000 depending on your circumstances and requirements and if you fit the lending criteria. If you already have in mind an important reason to get some finance then fill in our online application, stating that you are looking for a homeowner loan and our in house finance advisers will get back to you to discuss your options without obligation.
Homeowner Loans With No Mortgage / deeds cases
Having no mortgage on your residential property, or being mortgage free means that you, and you alone owns the property. These are known as deeds cases because un the past once you had no mortgage the lender would send your home deeds back to you. Therefore there are no outstanding charges to any lending company or high street bank on your property. This can be a great position to be in. For one you have no mortgage to pay and your monthly income can be invested elsewhere. Unfortunately one of the requirements for homeowner loans is that there is an existing charge on the property. This is normally in the shape of a current mortgage so that the loan can sit behind it as a second charge. If you have no mortgage or charge existing on the deeds to your property then you are of course still eligible for a homeowner loan, but the loan would sit as a first charge on the property and that by current regulations would make it into a mortgage. So an application for a homeowner loan on a mortgage free property is simply treated as a mortgage and our advisers will advise on that accordingly and find the best plan from our panel to obtain those funds for you.
The mortgage would still be using your property as security similar to homeowner loans but instead it would act as a first charge. A mortgage on a deeds case is also sometimes classed as a remortgage because you are not moving home. Now as you owe nothing on the property you can secure some of the very best rates out there because you will have plenty of equity.

In the mean time here are a few points to further explain homeowner loans vs. remortgages;
Homeowner loans- You do not need to repay your existing mortgage off, this means that if you have a great deal or you are in a fixed period with early repayment charges. You don`t have to move away from your mortgage provider and pay costly early repayment charges.
Remortgages- There tends to be lower rates for remortgages than secured loans as they are first charge on the house and usually for larger amounts of money in total. Also a full refinance mortgage normally can mean you will only be left with one monthly credit bill to pay.
