The drawdown equity release scheme is the most popular form of lifetime mortgage for a reason. Simply put, drawdown schemes allow you to take your tax free cash in stages, rather than in one lump sum.
This form of equity release plan works by the provider creating an initial cash reserve facility, calculated solely on your age & property value. You then decide how much of the cash is required from the outset. The amount you don’t take is left in the reserve facility and stays there, interest free, until you require any additional funds in the future.
As interest is only charged on the money withdrawn, the equity release drawdown plan can save you and your estate £1000’s over the long term.
Drawdown can be particularly beneficial if only a small amount is required initially, but its known there will still be a need for additional funds in the future. This flexibility provides people with the peace of mind knowing that should an emergency arise, they always have a financial backup plan.

Lump sum equity release schemes are still a popular form of lifetime mortgage & work by providing a capital lump sum to spend as one wishes.
This type of equity release mortgage can exist in a roll-up or interest only lifetime mortgage basis. The choice of which scheme is favoured will depend on whether you wish to make any monthly payments or not. Interest rates on both schemes are fixed for your lifetime & you retain 100% ownership.

Home reversion plans involve no interest element. Instead homeowners sell a percentage of their property to home reversion providers.
The property is therefore co-owned between both parties in the percentages agreed.
The occupiers live in the property rent free for the rest of their lives with the benefit of a lifetime tenancy agreement.

Interest only mortgages exist in two formats; over a fixed term or an interest only lifetime mortgage basis.
For those who dislike the compounding interest effect of traditional equity release plans, the interest only mortgage provides a great alternative.
Interest only mortgages allow people to maintain a level balance by repayment of the interest charged on a monthly basis.
An interest only lifetime mortgage is usually selected by those who have a good disposable income and wish to protect their inheritance.

People usually consider themselves ‘too old’ to be eligible to qualify for a mortgage in retirement. Quite the contrary.
Retirement mortgages are still available for people looking to take a mortgage into retirement, or wish to apply for a mortgage now they have reached retirement. Each option needs specialist advice to ensure the correct mortgage is selected and repayment vehicle to accompany it.
Reasons to consider a pensioner mortgage could be to remortgage an existing loan that is reaching its expiry date, therefore requiring repayment. Maybe you need to simply top-up your retirement income for financial reasons. Alternatively, there could be much needed home improvements required to the property such as new kitchen or bathroom, or you may just simply wish to buy a new house.
The retirement mortgage market has been restricted due to FSA regulations; however we still have access to mortgage companies that will lend over a 25 year term. These schemes could be taken on an interest only or capital and repayment basis to suit individual requirements.
A mortgage for pensioners can transform living standards in retirement. Call freephone 0800 678 5159 to speak to a retirement mortgage adviser who can find the best scheme for you.
