Lifetime Mortgages

Lifetime mortgages is the term given to the type of mortgage that you can take out when you have reached a certain age (usually 55 years) where you choose if you wish not to make any repayments during your lifetime. The mortgage and the interest that accrues on the mortgage if you are not making any repayments is paid out of the equity of your home normally on your death or on a sale of your home if you move into long term care.

You can use the lifetime mortgage to give yourself a tax free lump sum. It is a specialist area of law and finance and it is essential that the homeowner seeks advice from someone with the relevant experience.
