The demand for second homes and therefore second home mortgages in the UK is currently growing and there are many reasons why people might look towards owning a second home these days. From those looking to regularly escape the pace of the city at the weekend through to those looking for the occasional holiday getaway, a second home/holiday home is often a good option.
The emergence of managed holiday home developments has made investing in a second home an attractive option for many, with the ability to use the property as a getaway as well as the option of managed lettings, the market for these properties is growing.
Often these properties lie in areas of outstanding natural beauty or national parks and therefore may have restrictions limiting them to second home use. There are also a number of developments where the properties feature an unusual construction type and / or where the developer require's funding in stages to match the build.
