Second Mortgages

Second Mortgages

A second mortgage is a home mortgage that is established in addition to your original and current mortgage. Second mortgages are typically smaller than first mortgages, and therefor they usually have lower interest rates. However, second mortgages also come with some risks. For this reason, it’s important to carefully consider whether taking out a second mortgage is the right decision for you. 

Fixed-interest rate:
6 months – 7 years 
Variable interest rate:

3-5 years

Reasons for a second mortgage: 

  • Purchasing a second home. 
  • Unforeseen expenditure. 
  • Home renovation or improvement. 
  • Debt Consolidation.
