Features

More2Life's Flexi Choice Lite lifetime mortgage is a drawdown equity release plan which aims to provide a release of equity commensurate with the amount the homeowner is likely to need during their lifetime. This can be taken in one amount, or as a series of payments as and when required throughout the homeowners lifetime.

Another inheritance protection feature afforded by the More2Life Flexi Choice Drawdown range is the Guaranteed Inheritance Feature. At no extra cost to the homeowner, More2Life will automatically protect a proportion of the future sale value of the house based on the amount initially withdrawn. This will be amended as and when additional monies are drawndown.

The Flexi Choice equity release plans come with a Downsizing Early Repayment Charge Exemption. This feature becomes effective should the homeowner decide to sell-up once the plan has been in force for 5 years. If the property they intend to move to does not meet More2Life's lending criteria, then the loan can be repaid with NO penalty.

This range of Flexi Choice plans between More2Life and Rothesay come with clarity over their early repayment charges. The Flexi Choice Lite Drawdown plan has defined early repayment charges (ERC’s) which means a fixed percentage of the amount repaid will be charged within a stated period. These reduce from 10% in year 1, down to 2% of the balance outstanding in the 9th year. Thereafter, More2Life charge 1% in years 10-15 and finally no early repayment charge after the 15th year.

There is currently a generous free unlimited valuation on the Flexi Choice range of drawdown plans, enabling a fee free entry on application.

All versions of the More2Life Flexi Choice come with the industry recognised 'No Negative Equity Guarantee'. More2Life being members of the Equity Release Council, therefore ensure that any beneficiaries cannot by burdened by any debt over & above the final value of the property.

Options

Although the Flexi Choice Lite scheme is essentially designed as a roll-up lifetime mortgage, More2Life have included a 10% Voluntary Payment Option. This allows the homeowner to make ad-hoc repayments of 10% of the original amount borrowed each year with NO penalty, from inception. These voluntary payments can allow the plan to be repaid in its entirety down to a zero balance.

Voluntary repayments can help manage the future balance of the plan, and can therefore be operated on an interest-only or repayment basis, or just ad-hoc whenever the need arises. This can be important to those looking to ensure their beneficiaries acquire some form of inheritance.

*The Flexi Choice Drawdown Lite plan comes with the option of choosing whether to pay the application fee, or not.
By selecting the fees free deal will increase the interest rate accordingly. Rate quoted is the fees-free version which includes an application fee.
