  • Raising cash

    This is my first post so be gentle with me!
    I am mortgage free on my current home, I want to buy another house and at some point sell my current home to pay off the outstanding debt
    Is there any scheme, mechanism where I can raise money based on the combined value of the two properties, preferably interest only, the house I want to buy is approximately 40% of the combined total

    Ok - first of all there is no one scheme that will cover both properties - residential mortgages can be secured upon one property only.

    Assuming you have a deposit then you could raise a mortgage to purchase the new property; this would be secured upon the new property - or, if you needed to raise the deposit using the equity in your current property then you would also have to remortgage your existing property.

    Hence - it maybe 2 mortgages - one to buy your new property and one to remortgage your existing one.

    Hope this helps to clarify matters for you.

      Better to sell up and take out a fresh, albeit small, mortgage.
      Why would you want two mortgages when you are mortgage free?
