An introduction to interest only lifetime mortgages

Interest only lifetime mortgages allow you to make regular interest payments on the money you have borrowed and so tend to suit our customers who have a good disposable income.

These equity release plans are often used to repay existing interest only mortgages or capital and repayment mortgages where the existing lender won’t extend the mortgage into retirement. Interest only lifetime mortgages could be an ideal solution in this situation because you don’t have to pass any lender affordability or income checks.

They can also be used to maximise your inheritance once your plan has ended. By maintaining regular monthly interest repayments, you’ll stop interest from compounding meaning your balance remains level throughout the term. So, as payments are maintained, you will only have to repay the original amount borrowed once your plan ends.
