Lifetime mortgages and other equity release options in Suffolk

The most popular form of equity release is a lifetime mortgage, which is a loan secured against the value of your property and has some similarities with a standard mortgage. This includes the fact that you retain 100 per cent home ownership and you can sell your property and move to another, subject to certain criteria being met.

However, unlike a standard mortgage, there are no monthly repayments and there is no fixed term. The loan is repaid from the future sale of your property and this happens when you or the last remaining homeowner (in the case of a couple) moves into care or passes away. Any interest is added to the loan and paid off then. Alternatively, the interest can be paid regularly or you

can make ad-hoc interest repayments to reduce the interest at the end of the term. Use our equity release calculator to see how much cash you could raise.

A drawdown lifetime mortgage will allow you to release cash from your property over time, rather than receiving it all in one go. This means you could end up paying less interest because the interest is only charged from the date you release that amount of money.

The other main type of equity release is a home reversion plan, which offers tax-free cash for selling part of your home.
