About our Lifetime Mortgages

When your clients' spent a lifetime creating a happy home, the last thing they want to do is sell it to achieve financial stability or help their family. But many over 55s think this is the only way to realise their goals.

Thanks to you and our lifetime mortgages, they'll be able to embrace the future with confidence.

Together, we make it possible for your clients to manage their financial challenges in later life, without them having to sell their home.

Our Lifetime Mortgages can be taken as a lump sum with drawdown options. Choose from Flexible Lifetime Mortgage or Optional Payment Lifetime Mortgage.


Who can a lifetime mortgage help?

A lifetime mortgage is a loan secured against your client’s home that is usually repaid when your client dies or moves out of their home into long term care. It can help clients in lots of different situations.

Whether they want to adapt their home for their changing needs, get grandchildren on the property ladder, go their separate ways following a divorce, fund care costs or even pay off a maturing interest-only mortgage.

Lifetime Mortgage calculator

Our Lifetime Mortgage calculator helps financial advisers to:

  • Show your clients how much they may be able to release from their home.
  • Demonstrate examples for both taking the maximum available as an initial advance or taking a smaller initial amount where the remainder can be drawn on in the future.
  • Illustrate the effect of our inheritance protection option on the total loan amount available.
  • Explore the impact of house price inflation.
  • Highlight how the interest on their loan increases over time.
  • Create a summary of your client's choices and possible results.

The calculator results are examples only. A lifetime mortgage is a loan secured on your client’s home. It will reduce the value of your client’s estate and may affect their entitlement to means tested state benefits.
