KT8 equity release options: Lifetime mortgages

Equity release is sometimes called over 55 home loans or later life mortgages. There are two main types of products: Lifetime mortgages and home reversion schemes. Lifetime mortgages are the most popular and allow you to borrow some of your home’s value at a fixed or capped interest rate.  There are options for main residences, I.E. the home you live in, as well as for holiday homes and even Buy To Let properties. You can have the option of paying the interest to reduce the overall cost or allowing the interest to roll-up.  The choice is yours.

The mortgage will run for your lifetime (or until you move into long-term care) and on the eventual sale of your property, the mortgage plus the compounded interest is repaid from the sales proceeds. Read more on our blog about: What is a lifetime mortgage?

    Here are some answers to the most frequently asked questions about equity release.

    With a lifetime mortgage – the most popular type of equity release plan – you will always remain the owner of your property. A lifetime mortgage is a loan secured against your home.

    To be eligible for equity release you must fall into a handful of criteria. These include: You must be over 55; you must be a homeowner and own property in the UK; and your property must be worth a minimum of £70,000. The minimum age and property value will vary between product providers.

    Yes, an interest-only lifetime mortgage allows you to make monthly repayments. As long as you keep up with these payments, the amount you owe will never increase. Unlike conventional mortgages, the interest rate for lifetime mortgages can be fixed for life.

    Releasing equity from your home will not affect your state pension, but could affect other means-tested benefits that you may receive in retirement, including pension credits, council tax benefits, and savings credit.

    Equity release is based on your property and age and as long as you meet the eligibility criteria, your credit history will not affect your ability to take out an equity release plan.

    No, not if you do not want to. With a lifetime mortgage, there are typically no monthly repayments to make as the loan, plus rolled-up interest, is repaid when the plan comes to an end.  This is usually when the mortgage holder passes away or moves in to full time care.  If there are two mortgage holders then this happens when both have passed away of moved into care.
