TAB’s second charge residential loans are secured against UK residential properties. Second charge loans allow you to borrow money on a second charge legal basis. This means that you can take another loan out on a property providing there is enough equity to pay your existing first charge, and the second charge loan. Second charge loans are often used for the redevelopment of existing properties or the purchase of an investment property.
TAB lends directly to borrowers and through intermediaries. We offer loans up to 70% of the valuation of your project, including the cost of borrowing. There are no exit fees, and we do not lend against your principal residence.
TAB loans are unregulated. Any property used as security is at risk of repossession if you do not keep up with your payments.

A second charge loan on a residential or commercial property allows you to borrow money, providing there is enough equity whilst leaving your existing first charge in place. A second charge loan applies if you already have a loan secured against a property that already has an outstanding mortgage. For property improvements such as extensions, you would likely need to take out a second charge bridging loan if you already have a mortgage on the property. The distinction lets the lender know who has priority in the repayment if you can’t pay off the loan by the end of the term.
Due to the short term nature of a bridging loan, the sum of money borrowed is due for repayment according to the terms that are agreed upon before the loan is completed. Interest is charged on bridging loans which is calculated on a monthly basis. Interest can be paid in one of two ways. Either monthly (serviced) or retained (unserviced). Retained means the total cost of the interest will be rolled up and added to the initial lump sum borrowed and due for repayment at the end of the loan term.
