What is Equifinance?
Equifinance is a specialist lender that provides second charge mortgages for homeowners looking to use the equity they have in their home as security against a new loan. It also claims to offer lending products to those who have experienced financial difficulty in the past, or who have an unusual employment situation, such as being self-employed or new to their current job.
How do Equifinance loans work?
Equifinance offers a type of secured loan known as a second charge mortgage, which can be useful when you need funds for debt consolidation, home improvements or a bigger one-off purchase. A second charge mortgage uses the equity you have in your house as a guarantee against a new loan, without forcing you to remortgage or change your existing mortgage.
As a type of secured loan, Equifinance second charge mortgage loans may also offer more competitive interest rates than a regular unsecured loan, as well as longer repayment terms.
However, you should think carefully before applying for this type of loan because it puts your home on the line – if you don’t keep up repayments you may lose your property.
