What happens when it’s time to sell the house?

A lifetime mortgage can be repaid in any way really, but it’s usually using money from selling the property. If you go into long-term care, then either you or your solicitor sells the house. If you die and have a Will in place, it'll be sold by an executor looking after your estate – if there's no Will, administrators will sell it. Any money that’s left over after the lifetime mortgage has been repaid belongs to you or your estate.
