A fast, simple and secure Homeowner loan from Pepper Money
Whether you’re thinking about applying for one of our homeowner loans or have an application in progress, here are some common questions we get asked.
We’re a leading specialist lender, part of the Pepper Global group. We offer a range of variable, fixed, and discounted homeowner loans (second charge mortgages). You can apply for a homeowner loan online or arrange a call with an adviser.
With a homeowner loan from Pepper Money, you can borrow up to £1,000,000 subject to your circumstances and credit checks. A homeowner loan could enable you to borrow more than an unsecured personal loan – the main difference being that the borrowing is secured against the value of your home.
Homeowner loans, also known as second charge mortgages, can be taken out for many different purposes, including to re-organise personal finances. This can allow customers to consolidate existing debt into easy-to-manage monthly payments. All applications are considered and assessed individually but you should be aware that when consolidating existing credit this may result in you extending the repayment term of your debt and could increase the total amount you repay.
A homeowner loan can be used for almost any legitimate purpose. Common uses for people taking out a homeowner loan include debt consolidation, home improvements, school fees, and paying for a wedding.
You can apply for a homeowner loan with us directly by either starting an application online or arranging a call with one of our advisers.
You can find our fees in our tariff of fees and charges.
No. Our homeowner loans can only be secured against your main residential property.
We offer a range of fixed, discounted, and variable rate homeowner loan products. You can find out more by visiting our product page.
You may be able to borrow up to 100% of your property’s value, less the existing mortgage balance, subject to a satisfactory valuation. Minimum property values and conditions apply.
As a specialist lender, we welcome applications from customers with less than perfect credit histories and have a range of products tailored to suit your needs.
You can repay your homeowner loan in full at any time, however early repayment charges may apply. Full details are contained in your Mortgage Offer document sent prior to completion or in the ‘Early Repayment Section’ on the reverse of your Loan Agreement.
Please call us on 0330 143 125 if you are uncertain about the early repayment charges on your homeowner loan account.
A valuation of your property may be required, depending on the value of your property, the amount of the advance and your personal circumstances.
If you have received mortgage advice directly from us, we are responsible for ensuring that the valuation is carried out and we will pay the cost of it. In limited circumstances you may need to pay some, or all of this cost and we will notify you if this is the case.
If you have received mortgage advice from your personal mortgage adviser, the responsibility for ensuring the valuation is carried out, and for paying the cost of it, will fall to either your mortgage adviser or Pepper Money. No additional cost would normally arise as a result of a property valuation, but your mortgage adviser or Pepper Money will notify you if you need to pay some or all of this cost. A portion of any fee that you pay your mortgage adviser may include an element towards the cost of a property valuation.
Here’s a summary of the key points of our Homeowner loans.
