See how much money you could release from your home

  • Use our three-step calculator for an idea of the amount you could borrow
  • Just tap or type in a few basic details about you and your home
  • There’s zero pressure or obligation afterwards

Equity release is a way of turning some of the value of your home into tax-free cash. We offer a type of equity release called a lifetime mortgage. It's a long-term loan secured on your home and you can apply once you reach 55. You’ll stay in your home and remain the owner.

You might choose to take out a lifetime mortgage for any number of reasons. Such as improvements to your home, to give a helping hand to your loved ones, a once-in-a-lifetime adventure, or to stretch your retirement income a little further.

The loan and interest are repaid in full, usually from the sale of your home when you (and your partner, for a joint lifetime mortgage) pass away or go into long-term care, subject to our terms and conditions. Just remember that taking out a lifetime mortgage will reduce the amount of inheritance you can leave behind. It may also affect your tax position and whether you can claim some means-tested benefits.

Getting a sense of how much you could borrow is as easy as choosing your age, the type of home you live in and your home’s worth – our calculator will do the rest.

Check if you’re eligible for equity release with us (our lifetime mortgage)

To apply for our lifetime mortgage you need to:

  1. Be aged 55 or over (for joint applications, you both need to be over 55).
  2. Own a UK home (not including the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands), that’s worth £75,000 or more.
  3. Speak to your family about your plans and decide whether it's right for you.
  4. Want to borrow at least £15,000.
  5. Be mortgage-free, or have only a small mortgage left on your home. You’ll need to pay off any leftover mortgage and you can do this from the money released from your home.

Once we’ve taken a look at your application, we’ll send you an offer which confirms how much you can borrow. You’ll go through all this with your equity release adviser and solicitor. Then all that’s left for you to do is sign any legal bits.
