The Legal & General Flexible Optional Payment Blue Lifetime Mortgage (OPLM) is specifically designed for those looking to make monthly payments of interest for a specific term; be it a fixed term, or over the lifetime of their mortgage.
The Optional Payment Blue Plan is at the higher end of the interest rate scale within Legal & General's interest-only mortgage range, but also comes with a higher loan-to-value ratio for maximum loan calculations. The OPLM Blue plan offers the discipline of fixed interest monthly repayments to help control the balance. It provides a higher maximum release than its Optional Payment Yellow counterpart, and correspondingly higher comparable monthly payments.
The minimum property valuation applicable to this Optional Payment Blue Lifetime Mortgage is £100,000, with a figure of £150,000 for ex-council properties. A maximum property valuation outside London is £2m, with properties in London being acceptable upto £4m. Contact us on Freephone 0800 678 5955 if valuation is higher.
