Hodge Lifetime was original formed in 1965 as Home Reversions Ltd and was a founder member of the trade body - SHIP (Safe Home Income Plans) in 1991, whom itself was recently rebranded as the Equity Release Council. 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. Their equity release mortgages were the first to incorporate a flexible 10%pa repayment strategy, of which other lenders have since mirrored. This allows total control of the future balance as necessitated by the homeowner. With additional unique product features, Hodge Lifetime are a leading innovator in this expanding industry and one of the first to offer a mortgage specifically designed for homeowners nearing or in retirement.
