It is still possible to raise funds on a Interest Only basis with second charge loans and still keep your existing interest only mortgage in place.
This should only be used as a short term option. eg. interest only for 3/6 years once credit or income issues have been resolved then move to repayment basis.
If you are taking a 25 year mortgage with the first 3 on interest only you must be clear that you can afford the repayment mortgage after this period.
Remember that it’s not just about rates but also affordability. A short term higher interest rate loan on interest only may be the solution.
A £10,000 Mainstream Mortgage @ 4% over 25 years on repayment would cost £52.78 approximately per month
A £10,000 2nd Charge Mortgage @ 6% on interest only would cost £50.00 approximately per month
Remember that in 25 years the repayment mortgage would be cleared, with interest only the original amount borrowed would still be owed. However, as a short-term option maxmum 6 years this option is a useful way of solving your current issues. After 6 years your credit rating should be improved or after 3 years your accounts should be in order.
