Tax-free cash to spend on whatever you want

Equity release is a way of releasing cash from your home while you still live in it. The most popular form of equity release is called a lifetime mortgage, which is a loan secured on your home. You can take a lump sum all at once, a series of lump sums when it suits you or a regular income. You don’t have to repay anything back until you die or move out of your home into long-term care.

Is a lifetime mortgage right for you?

Use the money however you want

Home improvements, pay off an existing mortgage or just topping up your monthly income – 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

Fixed interest rates

Our rates are fixed so they will never change during the life of the loan

Nothing to repay while you live in the home

You don’t have to repay any of the money or the interest until you die or move permanently out of your home into long-term care

No negative equity guarantee

Whatever happens to the value of your property, you will never owe more than the price it is sold for. Subject to terms and conditions
