Equifinance, the specialist secured loan lender, has relaxed its criteria most notably to accept applications at 80% LTV with missed mortgage payments in the last year. This niche product is one brokers should be aware of, particularly as there is a perception by many that over 75% LTV all second charge applications need to be squeaky clean.
Whilst some lenders will disregard all adverse credit over 12 months old, even at 85% LTV, the latest update from Equifinance goes further and fills the gap for those borrowers with more recent adverse who also need a higher LTV. This is not a product for all but with low ERC’s it can provide the finance required right now with a view to refinancing when circumstances improve.
The key points are:
80% LTV – must have paid 5 of the last 6 mortgage / secured payments – maximum loan £15000
75% LTV – must have paid 4 of the last 6 mortgage / secured payments – maximum loan £30000
Ex council houses, flats and maisonettes accepted – max 5 storeys
Recently self employed accepted
Unlimited CCJ’s or defaults
Rate – 19.2%
Equifinance’s other recent changes include accepting single applications from co habiting couples, increasing repayment terms to 300 months and accepting second charge behind Preferred Mortgages.

THINK CAREFULLY BEFORE SECURING OTHER DEBTS AGAINST YOUR HOME
REPAYING YOUR DEBTS OVER A LONGER PERIOD CAN REDUCE YOUR PAYMENTS BUT COULD INCREASE THE TOTAL INTEREST YOU PAY. YOUR HOME MAY BE REPOSSESSED IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP REPAYMENTS ON A MORTGAGE OR ANY OTHER DEBT SECURED ON IT.
