Pure’s Classic plans are simple lump sum schemes with a fixed interest rate for the lifetime of the mortgage & aims to provide an initial cash lump sum to spend as one wishes.

The Pure Classic Lump Sum Lite equity release plan comes 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 a minimum of 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 repay charges. The Classic Lite Lump Sum 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, plus NO application fee option, thus enabling a fee-free entry upon application to the scheme.

All Pure Retirement Classic Lite 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 and above the final value of the property.


Although the Classic Lump Sum 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, immediately after the plan has started. The minimum amount that can be repaid is £50 and a maximum of 12 repayments can be made in any one 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 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.
