Background

Hodge Lifetime are a subsidiary of Julian Hodge Bank and have now been providing equity release schemes longer than any other equity release UK company.

Specialising in the post retirement marketplace, Hodge Lifetime offer a range of products from annuities to equity release schemes.

Features

The Hodge Lump Sum Lifetime Mortgage Plus scheme differs from the standard Lump Sum plan by the amount it releases via the loan-to-value percentages. In essence, the Lifetime Mortgage Plus will release a higher loan amount - typically 4% higher than the standard Lump Sum Lifetime Mortgage version. However, the resultant effect is that the Plus plan attracts a slightly higher interest rate than the standard plan.

This Lump Sum Lifetime Mortgage Plus plan comes with the benefit of a free valuation on properties valued upto £1 million - thus reducing set-up costs. This lump sum tranche of money receives a fixed lifetime equity release interest rate which has the benefit of the homeowner knowing the exact future balance.

Hodge Lifetime are members of the Equity Release Council and consequently their plans come with a no-negative equity guarantee. The protection this affords is that upon death and sale of the property, any beneficiaries cannot be left with any personal debt owing to the equity release provider.

There is no regular payment commitment imposed by Hodge, thus the interest if required can be left to roll-up. However, there is a 10% per annum flexible repayment option which does allow homeowners to make repayments to Hodge Lifetime and help control their balance.

A original feature of this Hodge Lifetime Plus equity release plan is the Downsizing Protection feature which allows the homeowner to downsize or sell-up after 5 years and incur NO early repayment charges. If downsizing within 5 years from inception of the plan, then a 5,4,3,2,1% penalty applies to the amount repaid.

Options

The Hodge Lifetime Lump Sum Plus mortgage facilitates homeowners to spend their tax-free cash as they wish, with no need in having to make any repayments. However, one of the features of the Hodge Lifetime Plus plan is the Flexible Repayment Option. This enables the homeowner to control their future balance by making repayments of upto 10% of the original amount borrowed each year, with NO penalty.

Therefore, should a level balance be required, then the homeowner can elect to make repayments of interest only back to Hodge Lifetime after 12 months term has elapsed. The Hodge Lifetime UK scheme can be used for capital & repayment purposes as if the full 10% allowance is used every year, then the balance would be reduced significantly; ideal if wanting to protect any inheritance. These payments are purely voluntary and the choice of the homeowner.

The Hodge Lifetime Downsizing Protection Option can be exercised from inception should the homeowner wish to sell & downsize home. If this occurs after 5 years then NO early repayment charge is levied by Hodge.

*A free valuation on properties valued upto £1 million is currently offered.
