If you take out a lifetime mortgage, you are taking out a loan secured on your home which does not need to be repaid until you die or move into long-term care. There are some lifetime mortgages which give the borrower the option to pay off some of the interest.

Unlike other types of Equity Release scheme, your home still belongs to you but you are obliged to repay the loan when certain conditions are met – death, moving into long-term care or if the terms of the mortgage are broken.

The lender can give you a lump sum or you can withdraw funds in stages. Interest is paid on this amount on an on-going basis or the interest can be ‘rolled up’ and paid together when the loan is repaid.

The loan is repaid from the proceeds of your home when sold. If there is any surplus from the sale it would be available to your beneficiaries or estate. If the value of the property is lower than the loan and interest which as accrued it is usual to have agreed a ‘no-negative-equity’ guarantee with the lender so that you would not have to pay back the value of your home.

As with all Equity Release schemes it is very important to get advice on whether the scheme is right for you.
