An introduction to enhanced lifetime mortgages

It goes without saying that health conditions tend to increase as we grow older. For this reason, a history of ill-health could actually be beneficial if you’re planning to use equity release to supplement your retirement income, repay a mortgage or pay for big ticket items such as home improvements and adaptations.

Having health conditions could allow you to release more money. Life expectancy can also be used to determine the size of your equity release. Alternatively, an enhanced plan could reduce the rate of interest you are offered on some other plans.

Enhanced (or ill health) plans are only available if you have one or more of a range of health or lifestyle conditions. These vary from ones that may be managed with prescription medication through to serious illnesses. The enhancement is always applied to the youngest homeowner – so it’s their health conditions that influence the maximum enhanced lump sum available.

Lifestyle choices, such as smoking or having a high body mass index (BMI) may also mean you qualify for enhanced plans. Lenders will assess the maximum equity release possible by asking you to complete a Health and Lifestyle Questionnaire - as well as writing to your doctor for confirmation of your health.
