Selina Finance has partnered with Pure Law to deliver completions on its overdraft-style second charge lending facilities.
Second charge lending has returned to pre-pandemic levels following a 76% record breaking year-on-year increase, according to Loans Warehouse.

MCI Mortgage Club has entered into the partnership in order to provide members with access to a wider range of second charge and bridging products.
The number of completions dipped below last month’s 2,000 headline, with 1,908 second charge loans being completed in April 2021, but this was still 278% up on April 2020.
Fiona Hoyle said: “FLA members are increasingly optimistic about the outlook and we expect to see a strong rebound in demand over the next year.”
