Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage or any other loan secured on it.

With the current increased popularity of second-charge mortgages, we take a look at Spring Finance and see if it lives up to its mantra of providing second-charge mortgages to those “who are unable to obtain finance from traditional high street lenders.”

Who is Spring Finance?

Established in 2011, Spring Finance offers long term second charge loans of £5,000 to £200,000 to UK homeowners with repayment terms of up to 25 years.

Since former Masthaven CEO Andrew Bloom acquired a large majority stake in the provider back in 2021, Spring Finance has ramped up its expansion with the hiring of several ex-Masthaven Bank bridging loans experts, including their previous head of business development, Jim Baker. In 2022, this expansion continued with Spring Finance entering the bridging and development finance market, now offering both regulated and unregulated loans on a first and second charge basis.

What is a second-charge mortgage?

Like your existing (first-charge) mortgage, a second-charge mortgage is a type of loan that is secured against your home or property. This means that if you don’t keep up repayments your property will be at risk.

Spring Finance offers second-charge mortgages on both residential homes and buy-to-let investment properties.

Key features of Spring personal loans

  • Spread your loan over 3 to 25 years. Keep in mind that longer terms help keep monthly repayments down, but also push up the overall cost.
  • Borrow £5,000 to £200,000. The amount you can borrow will depend on factors like your credit score and affordability. Spring Finance will lend up to 80% of the value of your property.
  • Poor credit histories considered. You may be accepted for a loan if your credit score is less than perfect. You will, however, have to prove you can afford the repayments.
  • Available to self-employed. Spring Finance states that it will consider your application if you’re self-employed.
