What is a Lifetime Mortgage & how can it help?

A lifetime mortgage is a form of equity release. Equity is the difference between the amount left on your mortgage balance and how much your property is worth.

Equity release is a useful tool for later life homeowners looking to give themselves a financial boost, utilising the equity that has gradually built up in their home.

So long as you are a homeowner over the age of 55 and have a property that is worth at least £70,000, you can release any stored equity from your home, tax-free, without even needing to move and find a new place to live.

There are lots of reasons why later life homeowners may look to take out a lifetime mortgage to release equity.

This includes to fund a nice retirement for themselves, to repay a current mortgage balance, to fund a wedding or something else. You don't have any restrictions, it's your money to spend as you see fit!

What are the different types of Lifetime Mortgages?

A lifetime mortgages will either be available as a lump sum lifetime mortgage or as a drawdown lifetime mortgage.

A lump sum lifetime mortgage allows you to release the equity from within your property, free of tax, into one big lump sum.

You will retain complete ownership of your home, having absolutely no need to make monthly repayments, and no restrictions on how you can spend your money.

A drawdown lifetime mortgage works in a similar fashion, but instead only releases a portion of the equity, giving you a choice of drawing out additional equity as and when you need it.

This actually reduces the overall cost of your lifetime mortgage, as you're only charged interest on what you draw out. This could save you a lot of money!

The qualifying criteria for each of these types of lifetime mortgage is the same as each other.

Accorion Arrow

There are lots of benefits to lifetime mortgages. One of the main benefits to this, is that whilst you can go ahead and make monthly mortgage payments if you would like to, you can simply just let the interest roll up, meaning you won't have any monthly payments.

Once you have passed away or have moved into long-term care, your property will be sold in order to pay off the mortgage balance.
