From new kitchens to taking the band back on tour, if you’re aged 55 or over, your home could help you live life your way with a Legal & General Lifetime Mortgage: 

• Release from £10,000 to £100,000 or more*, tax-free 

• No need to make monthly payments 

• An interest rate that’s fixed for life 

• No affordability assessments

A type of equity release, it’s a loan secured against your home. You may have cheaper ways to borrow money.

What do you need to know?

The loan is only repaid when the last surviving borrower dies or moves out of your home and into long-term care. Interest is added to the amount you owe each month. This means we charge interest on the loan plus any interest already added. The amount you owe will increase quickly over time, reducing the equity left in your home and any inheritance. It could also affect any entitlement to state benefits.

* 83% of our new customers released an initial lump sum of between £10,000 and £100,000 in first half of 2018. Amount released subject to individual circumstances.
