Together lowers rates and increases LTVs on its refreshed second charge range

14th April 2021, 2:43 pm

Together has cut rates on its second charge products to help more borrowers who may have been “locked out” by mainstream lenders.

The specialist lender’s new Prime Plus second charge mortgage has been launched at a rate of 4.29% for capital repayment and to 4.79% for interest only.

The two-year fixed, limited edition product has been added to the lender’s range alongside a re-priced five-year fixed second charge mortgage product, which comes with a rate of 4.99% for capital repayment and 5.49% for interest only.*

At the same time, the maximum LTV for Together’s second charge term products, which are initially available for three months, has been raised from 70% to 75% and the lower rate products are for loans of up to £1m.

Sundeep Patel director of sales at Together, said: “We expect demand in the second charge market to grow significantly throughout this year and are refreshing our product offering – including launching our Prime Plus two-year fixed secured loans – to help our intermediary partners’ clients achieve their ambitions.

“These changes may help borrowers who have been locked out by high street lenders. Self-employed customers, freelancers and contractors, those on zero-hour contracts, retired people and those on benefits, as well as those in full employment, may also fit Together’s criteria for our second charge products, subject to affordability assessments.

“At a time when people’s circumstances may have changed due to coronavirus, we think it’s important that lenders offer flexible criteria and competitive rates to increase the choice available in the market.”

Together’s Prime Plus second charge range is available to network and club brokers through the lender’s specialist distributer partners, and for direct customers.

Barney Drake, CEO of leading brokerage, Specialist Mortgage Group (SMG), described Together’s new offering as “hugely welcome news” for the second charge market.

“These are the type of bold moves the industry needs,” he said. “The combination of higher LTVs and lower rates will result in a significantly wider offering that we can provide to our customers. We have been partners with Together for two decades and we know that thriving business at Together equals a thriving second charge market.”

Meanwhile, the specialist lender has simplified its processes to cut out the number of supporting documents brokers need to submit during the personal and commercial finance application processes. The lender has updated document checklists its broker portal My Broker Venue (MBV) at the same time as streamlining its credit search process.
