Recently completed mortgage, equity release and lifetime mortgage cases

RIO

Sophie G from Aberdeen

The financial advisor I’ve had for 25 years said I could save inheritance tax by getting £350,000 of equity release. The money was lent at a very low-interest rate close to 2% and competitive with normal mortgages you would get by providing income. I have saved a lot of tax.

RIO

Mrs Shaw from Lancaster

mr-g

I had an interest-only mortgage with Birmingham Midshires. The mortgage had come to the end of its term and they wanted the £127000 back I still owed them. My lifetime mortgage saved me from losing my home and the rate was close to what I paid before.

Mr G from Kent

I got an interest-only lifetime mortgage and gave my sons £100,000 each so they could put a deposit down on a home. My money made it possible for them to get a very good mortgage deal, especially one son who is not well paid.

Mrs Daly from Glasgow

My daughter lives in the states and does not have health insurance. My £30,000 lifetime mortgage paid the medical bills for her son to be born and a years rent in advance for a new flat for the baby.

RIO

Mrs V from Hastings

I had spent my life running up credit cards and loans then getting interest-only mortgages to pay off the debt. I got to retirement age and still owed the bank £160,000. The term was about to expire, and I could not afford the payments on my pension anyway. I got £180,000 equity release and now I am more comfortable with no monthly repayments and I spent £20,000 on a new bathroom and kitchen. I now know I can stay in my home.

RIO

Mr Williamson from Chiswick

My son is a chef in a care home. He is not well paid. No way his bank would lend him the money to buy a flat. My equity release enabled him to put a substantial deposit down so his mortgage was very small. My equity release interest rate was close to his interest rate offered by his bank.

RIO

Sandra from Manchester

I got equity release to give money to my daughter to buy a house. Without the money I borrowed, her buying a home would have been impossible.

Equity Release Rates: A Comprehensive Guide

Equity release is becoming an increasingly popular option for older homeowners looking to unlock the wealth tied up in their homes. The landscape of equity release options is diverse, catering to various age groups and financial situations.

Bad Credit Mortgages Over 55

As the name suggests, mortgages over 55 are tailored for those who are 55 and over. These products are designed to cater to individuals who might have different financial needs than younger borrowers.

Benefits

Financial Flexibility

For many, reaching 55 heralds the beginning of retirement or at least a slowdown in professional commitments. These no credit check mortgages can provide the flexibility needed during this phase of life.

Debt Consolidation

It can be an opportunity to consolidate other debts and potentially reduce monthly outgoings.

Things to Consider

Property Value

It’s essential to evaluate if the amount of loan you’re considering will affect the future sale value of your home.

Retirement Mortgages Over 60

These mortgages are designed for individuals who are transitioning into or are in their retirement years.

Advantages

Extended Loan Terms

With life expectancies on the rise, some lenders are offering extended terms for their mortgages over 60 products.

Tailored Assessments

Lenders often consider pension incomes and other retirement assets when evaluating loan applications.

One Family Retirement Mortgages

Pensioner Mortgages Over 65

Being further into retirement, individuals in this age group have unique needs that mortgages over 65 aim to address.

Benefits

Additional Retirement Funding

This mortgage can provide supplementary funds for a more comfortable retirement, whether it’s for travel, healthcare, or other pursuits.

Interest Rates

Often, individuals in this age bracket can secure competitive interest rates, especially if the home has accrued significant equity.

Pure Retirement Retirement Mortgages

Interest only Mortgages Over 70

Characteristics

Specialist Lenders

Given the advanced age, not all high-street lenders might offer mortgages for this category. However, specialist lenders often have tailored products.

Loan-to-Value (LTV) Ratios

The LTV ratios can vary, but often, older borrowers can access a more significant portion of their home’s value.

Canada Life Mortgages

Bad Credit Mortgages Over 75

Reaching 75 doesn’t mean mortgage options dry up. Instead, the products available are often more specialised.

Features

Flexible Repayments

Some mortgages offer the choice of making interest-only payments, with the capital being repaid after the property is sold.

Age Caps

While some lenders might have age caps, others might consider the application based on the overall health and life expectancy of the borrower.

Poor Credit Retirement Remortgages

Benefits

Rate Reduction

With interest rates fluctuating, retirement remortgages can allow homeowners to switch to a more favourable rate.

Unlocking Equity

For homes that have appreciated in value, this type of remortgage can help in accessing the increased equity.

Pensioner Remortgage

Features

Income Considerations

Lenders will often consider various income sources such as pensions, investments, and other assets.

Flexible Terms

Given the specific nature of the product, there can be more flexibility in the loan term and repayment structure.

Lifetime Mortgage

Lifetime mortgages are a popular equity release product.

Key Aspects

No Monthly Repayments

Interest gets ‘rolled up’ into the loan, and both the capital and interest are repaid when the homeowner sells the property, moves into care, or passes away.

Fixed Interest Rates

Most lifetime mortgages offer fixed interest rates, ensuring that the rolled-up interest doesn’t skyrocket unexpectedly.

Release Equity

Benefits of Equity Release

Financial Freedom

This allows homeowners to tap into the value of their home without selling it.

Stay in Your Home

One of the biggest advantages is that homeowners can continue living in their property.

Equity Release

Types of Equity Release
