Equity release calculator for enhanced plans
How to use the enhanced equity release calculator
To get an idea of the maximum you could borrow with an enhanced lifetime mortgage, you simply need to input the value of your property (which must be a minimum of £70,000 and in the UK), the age of the youngest homeowner (which must be at least 55) and your postcode (to understand where you live) – as these are the criteria that lenders use when deciding how much money you can borrow.
An introduction to enhanced lifetime mortgages
Facts show that the number of health conditions increase as we grow older. For this reason, ironically a history of ill-health could actually be beneficial if you’re planning to use equity release to help supplement your retirement income, or pay for big ticket items such as home improvements and adaptations.
Simply because having health conditions could allow you to release more money. Using similar underwriting as annuities, life expectancy can also be used to determine the size of your equity release.
Enhanced (or ill health) plans are only available if you have one or more of a range of health or lifestyle conditions. These vary from ones that you may be managing with prescription medication through to serious illnesses.
Making lifestyle choices, such as smoking or having a high body mass index also qualify.
