What is a lifetime mortgage?
A lifetime mortgage is a way of releasing cash from your home while you still live in it. It's a loan secured on your home which allows you to take a lump sum all at once or as a series of lump sums when it suits you. You don't have to repay anything until you die or move out of your home into long-term care. To be eligible for a lifetime mortgage, you must be aged 55 or over.
Use the money however you want
Home improvements, pay off an existing mortgage or increasing your income in retirement – it’s up to you. There may be cheaper ways to borrow money
Provide an inheritance
You can protect part of the value of your home so it can still be left as an inheritance
You don't have to move home
A lifetime mortgage means you can stay in your own home, but still access the money tied up in it

Our rates are fixed so they will never change during the life of the loan
Nothing to repay while you live in the home
