What is a first legal charge bridging loan?

A first legal charge is a principal loan on a property. In the case of first legal charges, the lender takes precedence above all others; being the principal lender of the loan.


What is a second legal charge bridging loan?

A second legal charge is secured against a property that already has a loan or mortgage outstanding. Second charge loans require consent from a first charge lender.
