An introduction to voluntary repayment lifetime mortgages
Voluntary repayment lifetime mortgages are a relatively recent innovation and provides you with real flexibility in how you manage your equity release plan balance in the future. This is comparable to other lifetime mortgages which don’t offer ad-hoc repayments or where early repayment charges (ERCs) are included.
Voluntary repayment schemes allow you to repay anywhere up to 10% of your original balance each year without penalty. Lenders have different criteria as to how much and when these payments can be made.
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.
