Standard Life, once one of the UK’s leading mutuals, are now part of the Phoenix Group and have become the largest UK long-term savings and retirement businesses.
As part of this strategy, Standard Life Home Finance entered the equity release market in late 2021 with a range of drawdown and lump sum lifetime mortgages. This Horizon product
The Horizon range of products offer a choice of drawdown or lump sum lifetime mortgages. Both options come with 8-year fixed early repayment charge (ERC) period and competitive interest rates.
Horizon plans also come with various loan-to-value (LTV) options, which provide tiered interest rate solutions. This basically means, the lower the LTV, the lower the Horizon interest rates become and vice versa.
Plans start from age 55, upto a maximum age of 84 and are available on properties between £99,000 and £5.1 million. The minimum and maximum loans are £10,000 and £1.5 million respectively.
The Standard Life equity release calculator will advise the maximum amount of borrowing that’s available between these ages.
