Lifetime mortgages in Walton on Thames

A lifetime mortgage is a mortgage secured on your property. Unlike an ordinary mortgage, you do not normally have to make repayments. Unless of course you wish to.  Interest is added to the loan and the loan amount plus interest payments are paid back when you die or move into long-term care. Check out how much you could borrow with our equity release calculator.

They are available for people aged over 55 and there is a no negative-equity guarantee, which means you can never owe more than your property is worth. Some plans allow you to  ring fence some of your wealth in your property, so beneficiaries are still guaranteed  an inheritance. Read our blog on how a lifetime mortgage can help you in retirement.

    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.
