Calculate Equity Release for Second or Holiday Homes
How to use the second or holiday home equity release calculator
To get an estimate of the maximum you could borrow with a second/holiday home lifetime mortgage, simply 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)
- your postcode
This is the criteria that lenders use when deciding how much money you can borrow.
An introduction to second or holiday home lifetime mortgages
If you have a second or holiday home, you could use equity release as a way to raise capital funds. To qualify, you must use the property for a least 4 weeks of the year and can only let it out for a maximum of 4 weeks at a time.
These specialist plans are designed to help homeowners access money tied up in the value of their second property. Where homeowners are reluctant to secure anything against their main residence, equity can be released against a second/holiday home instead.
Like any lifetime mortgage, the money released is tax-free and yours to spend as you wish. There’s a 10% voluntary payment option if you wish to control the future balance of the plan, and 8-year fixed early repayment charges.
While the range of plans for second and holiday homes is not as extensive as it is for main residence equity release, there are still plenty of options to meet your individual needs. These plans also come with competitive rates and flexible features.
