How to use our equity remaining equity release calculator
Simply use our equity remaining calculator for your equity release plan to get an instant estimate of the maximum you could save.
This helpful calculator gives you an idea of how much inheritance you will leave when your equity release plan is repaid. To help you get the answers you need, the equity remaining calculation has been based on a roll-up lifetime mortgage where no repayments are made, so the interest compounds annually.
You can easily change the results dependent upon personal factors – such as how much you wish to borrow, the interest rate on your plan and how much you think your house will go up in value each year as a percentage (also known as the House Price Index or HPI).
With our equity release calculators, no further details are required for you to see how much you could release from any of our lifetime mortgages. Once you've filled in the information, the amount of equity remaining after your equity release plan ends is shown instantly in an easy-to-read table.

Why find out how much equity is remaining on a lifetime mortgage?
For many of our customers, particularly those with beneficiaries, it’s important for them to understand how much money they’ll leave for their loved ones, once their lifetime mortgage is repaid.
While equity release will certainly impact on your inheritance and the value of your estate, there are ways to minimise this with certain types of later life equity release plans.
It's also important to consider the impact of house prices. The greater the value of your home when your plan is repaid (either when the last homeowner dies or moves into long-term care), the larger your inheritance will be.
While house prices may go up and down, recent history shows us that over the longer term they have mainly increased. According to the Nationwide House Price Index, the average house price has increased by 444% over the last 30 years*.
The government's website (using Land Registry data) has a useful property price trend tool that allows you to track the rise in house prices over time.
