A lifetime mortgage might not be right for everyone which is why it is important to talk to a specialist adviser. At Boon Brokers, we are directly authorised by the FCA and a member of the Equity Release Council. We offer completely free, no obligatory advice so you can discuss your options openly.
A lifetime mortgage is where you already own the property and are securing a loan against it. A residential mortgage is where a mortgage provider lends you the money to buy a property.
Advantages:
  • Relieve the stress of paying any debts
  • Access a tax-free lump sum
  • Avoid paying as much inheritance tax
  • Spend your money whilst you can still enjoy it
  • Provides money to spend on care if needed
  • Keep living in your home
Disadvantages:
  • Interest can quickly be accrued
  • Difficult to estimate the total cost as it depends on length of life
  • Early repayment penalties
  • Restricted if you want to move house
If the plan is in both of your names, you can continue living in the house with the same terms. However, if it is only in your partner's name and the mortgage cannot be paid off, the house must be sold and you will have to move out. To make sure that both of you have the right to stay in the house, the plan must be written in joint names from the start. If you decide to get remarried or move in with someone after you have taken the plan out, you must tell your provider. Unfortunately, it may not be possible to add your new partner to the plan, which means they will not have the right to stay in the house.
