Typical features of lifetime mortgages in Exeter

Would you like to stay in your home in Exeter and release equity? Equity release is an alternative to downsizing and means you can stay in your home until the end of your life or until you move into long-term care. There are two main types: Lifetime mortgages and home reversion schemes but lifetime mortgages are the vastly more popular choice.

Typical features of a lifetime mortgage include:

  • Interest is rolled up and added to the overall debt, meaning there is no need to make monthly repayments, although you can do so if you wish to and interest rates are low.
  • Because no monthly payments need to be made, the mortgage is not underwritten on personal affordability but is based on the value of your home.
  • Unlike a residential mortgage, the interest rate is fixed for life.
  • Under the terms of a lifetime mortgage, you still own your home and will continue to do so until you either die or move into long-term care. Read our blog on: Do I own my home with equity release?
  • The cash raised from equity release is tax-free.
  • Lifetime mortgages often fall into two categories those in which you withdraw a lump sum at the outset, or a ‘drawdown’ mortgage when you can release a certain amount of equity at a time and will only ever pay interest on the money received.
