Equity release calculator for voluntary repayment plans
*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 repayment equity release calculator
To get an idea of how much you could save over the length of your lifetime mortgage by making voluntary payments, you simply need to input a few details.
These are the amount of money you are planning to release. The interest rate of the plan you are considering and finally the amount you want to repay each year (which can be up to 15% of the amount released per year).
Your results show you your mortgage balance across different periods of time when you don’t make any repayments and when you do (based on the % you inputted). So, you can easily see just how much money you could save through making regular repayments.
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 up to 15% of your original balance each year – whenever you want to and have the funds available to do so.
If you are in a position to make some form of monthly, annual or ad-hoc repayment, then the impact on the final amount that has to be repaid when your plan ends will be significant.
Our voluntary repayment calculator gives you good an idea of what these potential savings could be and shows the effect making repayments, or not, has on the future balance.
