A lifetime mortgage is a type of equity release, a loan secured against your home that allows you to release tax-free cash without needing to move out.
Lifetime mortgages are available to homeowners aged 55 or over. You can take the money as a lump sum, series of lump sums or as a regular income. No repayments are required until you die or move out of your home into long-term care.
Whether you're looking to pay off an existing mortgage, make some home improvements, or gift money to a family member, a lifetime mortgage could help.

How much is a lifetime mortgage?
One of the main things people want to know about lifetime mortgages is how much the loan will cost. There are two parts to this answer:
How interest is calculated: This is the rate of interest charged on the loan, which affects the total amount you need to pay back.
Costs involved in releasing equity: These are the costs you need to pay during the process of releasing equity with a lifetime mortgage, for example arrangement fees and solicitors fees. We don't charge an advice fee.
