Having second thoughts on a home equity loan

My wife and I got approved for a loan based on our debt-income ratio a few months ago. We didn’t push through with the loan because of the uncertainty due to the pandemic. A home equity loan was offered by our current lender but we are having second thoughts due to the restrictions like not being able to use it for a second property. Any thoughts? by ranasta604 from Bloomfield, Connecticut. Nov 1st 2021 Reply

You should be able to use your home equity line for any purpose, that's the whole point of it. If you want to use it to improve your existing home, buy a piece of land, a second home, pay off debts - there should be no restrictions on what you use it for. You would have been qualified (debt-to-income) based on a fully drawn line. Maybe that's what you are referring to?
