Equity release calculator for lump sum plans
How to use the lump sum equity release calculator
To get an idea of the maximum you could borrow with a lump sum 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.
Your equity release calculator results not only show you how much you could borrow with a lump sum plan, but you can also see how much money you could get using an enhanced plan (if you have any health conditions) and an interest-only plan (where you make regular interest repayments).
An introduction to lump sum lifetime mortgages
Lump sum lifetime mortgages are the most popular type of equity release plan and are sometimes called ‘standard’ plans, as they are the simplest type of scheme. There are typically no monthly repayments to make as the interest accruing ‘rolls up’ and is repaid with the initial amount borrowed when the plan ends. (Usually when the last homeowner dies or moves into long term care.)
Because of their simplicity, lump sum plans tend to offer lower interest rates and lenders often allow you to borrow more. Many now come with flexible repayment options, which can be ideal if you wish to protect your inheritance.
Lump sum lifetime mortgages could also be the ideal solution if you have ‘big ticket’ plans for your money such as repaying your mortgage or helping children with a deposit for their first home.
