Question on UK property law.Background:I have a mortgage

Customer Question

Question on UK property law.
I have a mortgage (bridging loan - commercial for residential purposes) and wish to take out a second charge. The original lender (first charge) are refusing to accept a second charge, even though the total LTV would be 50%. The question is:
1 Can the mortgage provider refuse to allow a second charge and what are the remedies?
2 If so, what are the grounds for refusal?
Can you suggest any laymans general reading on the subject?

Hi If this is a commercial loan and unregulated then the lender is entitled to enforce the terms of his loan and if that prohibits second charged ( which would be normal) then they can just refuse and you have no remedy except to refinance. I expect that is what they want if this is bridge laon.
