Equity Release Lifetime Mortgages

What is equity release?

Equity release is a lifetime mortgage that is offset against your property. Usually, it is relevant only if you are a long-time property owner, and you have paid into your mortgage over a long period of time, or if you have paid off your mortgage. You could potentially look at an equity release mortgage to access money that you have invested into your property. As property value usually increases over time, which in turn will increase the amount of equity within your property, this equity can be used to offset your lifetime mortgage.

A lifetime mortgage essentially means that you take out a mortgage equal to a certain percentage of the value of your home from a lender. You will still have ownership of the property; a lifetime mortgage basically means that a loan is secured against the property equal to a certain percentage.

For example, your property may be valued at £200,000, and you want to secure a 20% loan – which amounts to £40,000 of the current property value of £200,000.

There are versatile options available such as:

Inheritance protection

You can put aside a future percentage value of your property for inheritance. Although this will limit the amount you can borrow, it will mean that the percentage that you have put aside can be given to those you love and care about without any debt attached to it.

Repayment

There are options available to pay back either interest and loan, or interest only.

Lump sum or Small sums

Once the lifetime mortgage has been granted you can release it in staggered, smaller amounts or take it as one lump sum. The good thing is that interest will only be charged on what you take, rather than the whole amount that you could potentially take.

Which is the right one for you depends on your situation. This is where we come in. Journey Mortgages is here to help and guide you through the different options available, so you get the right product for your needs.
