Equity Release

Releasing money from your home could give you a more comfortable retirement

Call us FREE* on 0800 404 6220 to see how much you could release and for more information.

You could release some of the equity in your home with a lifetime mortgage.

What is a lifetime mortgage?

A lifetime mortgage is a long-term loan secured against your home. We offer two types to suit you, so you can either release a lump sum to spend now or choose to take a smaller amount now, leaving the rest to spend in full or in part later.

The benefits and things to think about

  • Do more of the things that matter in your retirement by releasing money from your home.
  • You can continue to live in your home until you die or go into long-term care, as defined in our terms and conditions.
  • Minimum age and property values apply, and there are also restrictions on the type of property we'll accept.
  • If you have an existing mortgage on your home or any secured loans, you'd have to use the money you release to pay these off first, but then you'd be free to spend what's left however you want.
  • A lifetime mortgage is a lifetime commitment. It's important to understand the costs and risks involved, including how taking a plan will reduce the inheritance you leave and how it may affect your tax position and entitlement to means tested benefits.
  • Although the amount of inheritance you can leave will always be reduced, you can choose an inheritance guarantee on our lifetime mortgages to ensure you can leave something for your loved ones. However, this will reduce the amount of money you can borrow.
  • It's a good idea to involve your family in the decision process.

Lifetime mortgages are not available in the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man.
