Tips on getting a mortgage for a second home
Mortgages expert, Florence Codjoe, outlines some of the considerations to make before getting a second-home mortgage:

“Decide between a fixed or variable rate. As with all mortgages, you should decide whether you want a fixed or variable-rate deal. Variable rates might be lower initially, but if rates increase you could end up paying more overall than if you took out a fixed rate. Fixing your mortgage also means you’ll always know how much your ongoing mortgage repayments will cost. 

“Wait to pay off your current mortgage. It could be worth waiting until you’ve repaid more (or even all) of your current mortgage. Waiting to pay off your current mortgage could help you get a better deal on a second home mortgage.

“Budget for stamp duty. Bear in mind that you’ll also have to pay an extra 3% in stamp duty on top of the normal rates when you buy a second home, so make sure you budget accordingly.”
