Lifetime mortgages.

With average life expectancy increasing, more and more people are looking to access all their assets to provide retirement income. As a result, the equity release market has grown by 28% since 2015 (Equity Release Council: first half 2015 verses first half 2016).  So how could you help your client with a lifetime mortgage?

How a lifetime mortgage could help your client

A lifetime mortgage is a loan that’s secured against your client’s home to give them tax-free cash that they can take all at once or in smaller amounts as and when they need it. With our Lifetime Mortgages:

  • There is a no negative equity guarantee and an inheritance protection option.
  • Clients can choose to include a 2% cash back option (except on our Premier Flexible product).
  • Your client has flexibility and control with our Optional Partial Repayments. Your client can pay up to 10% each year of the total borrowing (excluding interest) without triggering an early repayment charge.

Which clients could a lifetime mortgage help?

For clients looking to improve their retirement, to those wanting to help their family or make home improvements – even those who are looking to keep a pre retirement lifestyle – a lifetime mortgage could be the answer.
