Good morning thank you for contacting Just Answer my name Is***** am a solicitor and I will be assisting you today. A second charge has less precedence than a first charge, however the rights of a second charge holder includes being able to seize a property and force a sale in order to recoup the amount borrowed should the second charge mortgage fall into arrears.
