Lifetime mortgages in Winchester and Andover explained

There are two main types of equity release products: lifetime mortgages and home reversion schemes. By far the most popular type of equity release is lifetime mortgages and there are hundreds of products to choose from. This product is designed for home owners over the age of 55 and is a mortgage designed to run for the rest of your life.

We can guide you through the whole process of choosing the right product for you. Interest rates are low and remain fixed for the whole term, so you will never need to worry about re-mortgaging. You may wish to pay monthly interest repayments, though you may choose not to. You get to remain in your home until the last party to the equity release moves into residential care or dies. Read our blog on how long does equity release take?

The amount you can borrow will depend on a number of factors, including your age and the value of your property. The money is tax-free and can be used as you wish. Check out our equity release calculator to see how much money you could raise.

Be assured that when you talk to our specialists, all advice is tailored to you and your circumstances. We work hard to research every option to make sure that equity release is the right option for you. We also have access to other financial products, such as residential mortgages and Retirement Interest Only mortgages or RIOs.
