Equity Release Voluntary Repayment

*The balance outstanding assumes repayments are made on day one of the following year.
A lifetime mortgage may run for a longer period than the estimated term shown, if so, the loan balance will be correspondingly higher.

How to use the voluntary payment equity release calculator

To get an estimate of how much you could save over the length of your lifetime mortgage by making voluntary payments, simply input a few details into the calculator.

These include:

  • the amount of money you are planning to release
  • the interest rate of the plan you are considering
  • the amount you want to repay each year - this amount can be anywhere from 10% up to a maximum of 40% of the original amount borrowed each year

This is the criteria that lenders use when deciding how much money you can borrow.

Your results illustrate your mortgage balance across different periods of time - when you don’t make any repayments, and when you do (based on the % you inputted). This means you can easily see just how much money you could save through the lifetime of your plan by making regular voluntary payments.

An introduction to voluntary repayment lifetime mortgages

Voluntary repayment lifetime mortgages are a relatively recent innovation and could provide you with real flexibility in how you manage your equity release plan balance in the future.

That’s because they allow you repay anywhere from 10% to 40% of your original balance each year. This can be done whenever you choose, so long as you have the funds available to do so.

If you’re able to make some form of monthly, annual or ad-hoc repayment, the final amount that has to be repaid when your plan ends will be significantly lower.

Our voluntary repayment calculator gives you a good idea of what these potential savings could be and shows the effect making repayments, or not, has on your future lifetime mortgage balance.
