A lifetime mortgage lets you borrow money secured against your home. The house will still belong to you, but interest is charged on what you have borrowed. It is the most popular form of equity release.
Interest is charged at a fixed rate and this is not repaid on a monthly basis – it is added to your mortgage. As the homeowner, you will receive a lump sum of cash which you can use however you like whilst still owning your property in full. You either pay this back or have it added to your loan total.
Things to Consider
Once the home is sold and the money from this sale is used to pay off the loan. If there isn’t enough, they will repay any extra above the value of the estate. This can be a flaw in the process, but a no-negative-equity guarantee usually guards against such an outcome.
