Hodge Lifetime has taken the lifetime mortgage market by storm with its forward thinking products catering for the changing needs of the over 60's retired population.
The introduction of the Flexible Lifetime Mortgage Plan in 2012, saw two new features arrive that had never set foot in an industry previously devoured of new ideas & future planning tools.
Details of these features are as follows: -
Downsizing Protection Option - allows anyone holding a Hodge Lifetime equity release plan to repay their lifetime mortgage with NO early repayment charges, providing they move house & downsize at the same time after 5 years of starting the plan. Also favourably for anyone that downsizes WITHIN 5 years - Hodge Lifetime will only charge a penalty on a decreasing basis of 5%,4%,3%,2% & 1% over the first 5 years of the plan term. These rates are the best the equity release industry has to offer currently & helps those who have no intentions of moving now, but may do so in the future for various reasons.
Flexible Repayment Option - first came the roll-up lifetime mortgage, then interest only lifetime mortgages where the interest could be repaid - now the Hodge Lifetime Flexible repayment option. Hodge now offer the facility to repay upto 10% of the original capital borrowed each year with NO penalty. Therefore, if you're looking to cap the build up of interest with ad-hoc repayments, or even wish to reduce the equity release mortgage balance, then you can now do so. The repayments can be made anytime you like after the initial period of 12 months from the start date of the plan.
Hodge now have a range of lifetime mortgage plans that can be taken on a single lump sum or drawdown equity release basis with flexibility being key to their portfolio of products. With interest rates starting from 5.74% monthly (6.20% APR) and fixed for life, the present time is the best time the equity release market has ever seen for interest rates.
If you are looking for an equity release scheme whereby you can afford to make repayments of capital &/or interest in order to protect you children's inheritance, then the Hodge Flexible Lifetime Mortgage scheme should be of interest.
