Pure Retirement was formed in 2014 as a lifetime mortgage lender with a wealth of industry experience in equity release business behind it. This knowledge has helped Pure Retirement identify a gap in the retirement lending market for homeowners over the age of 55.

Pure Retirement's experience has helped position it's equity release plans both in the higher maximum loan part of the market and lower competitive interest rate end. They also have consideration to minimising set-up costs using cashbacks & fee waivers on their drawdown and lump sum lifetime mortgage plans. This makes the Pure Retirement Classic range of plans one of the lowest interest rate and application cost-to-market equity release schemes available.

The Pure Retirement Classic range of drawdown lifetime mortgage plans are funded by Rothesay Life - a leading UK life insurer. There are many versions of the Classic Drawdown plans - the Lite and Midi. The rate quoted is the Classic Drawdown Super Lite plan. The plans only differ in the size of the loans they will provide at certain ages and the consequent interest rate that Pure Retirement apply.

Their Classic Drawdown Equity Release Plans provide an initial capital lump sum, which aims to offer a more competitive interest rate than its industry colleagues. Combining balance control measures with their flexible 10% partial repayment facility, along with competitive lifetime mortgage interest rate, Pure Retirement aim to offer this drawdown equity release scheme to a wider generic audience of retirees.


The Pure Retirement Classic Drawdown Super Lite Plan is only available via a limited number of specialist equity release intermediaries, of which Equity Release Supermarket is one. They are geared towards those looking for flexibility & access to capital both immediately & throughout retirement, whenever demand arises.

Pure's Classic Drawdown Lifetime Mortgage scheme is geared towards providing an initial cash lump sum, with access to an additional cash reserve facility in the future. The cash reserve can be tailored to suit the homeowners requirements. The minimum amount of cash that can be taken from the reserve facility is £2,000 & incurs no additional admin fees to make these withdrawals.

Another inheritance protection feature provided by the Pure Retirement Classic Drawdown range is the Guaranteed Inheritance Feature. At no extra cost to the homeowner, Pure Retirement 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 Classic Drawdown 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 Pure Retirement's lending criteria, then the loan can be repaid with NO penalty.

This range of Classic plans between Pure Retirement and Rothesay have come with clarity over their early repayment charges. The Classic Super Lite 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 start at 10%, reducing by 1% per annum to year 10. The ERC is thereafter maintained at 1% to year 15, after which no penalty is then levied.

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

All versions of the Pure Retirement Classic plans come with the industry recognised 'No Negative Equity Guarantee'. Pure Retirement are 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.


Although the Pure Classic Drawdown Super Lite scheme is a essentially designed as a roll-up lifetime mortgage, Pure 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. The minimum amount that can be repaid is £50 and a maximum of 12 repayments can be made every year.

This can help manage the future balance of the plan, and can therefore be operated on an interest-only or even capital and 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 Pure Classic Super Lite Plan comes with the option of choosing whether to pay the application fee. By selecting the fees free deal will increase the interest rate accordingly.
**The 3-year early repayment charge exemption applies to joint life applications should the loan be repaid within 3 years of death, or long term care of the partner.
