Melton Building Society was founded in 1875 and has been serving the people of Melton Mowbray ever since.
As a small independent, mutual society, Melton places its members at the heart of everything it does.
Melton also prides itself on the contribution it makes to the communities it serves, including supporting local charities not only financially, but also voluntarily.
Melton offers a single discounted rate RIO mortgage for borrowers over the age of 65. Unlike other RIO lenders there are no minimum income or equity requirements. The maximum LTV is 50% and the applicants must a financial LPA in place. Early repayment charges are payable with the Society’s RIO mortgage - which are tapered. You must also pay a product fee as well as your valuation and solicitor’s fees.
As is common with the RIO lenders, affordability is assessed on both incomes for joint borrower and so both applicants must be able to afford to make monthly interest repayments.
The ‘big 6’ high street banks - that is Halifax, Barclays, Lloyds, HSBC, Santander and Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) don’t currently offer lifetime mortgages or other equity release plans themselves.
Recently, Nationwide entered the lifetime mortgage market but instead of offering its own range of plans, it refers its members to Pure Retirement
