Using equity release to borrow against your home

Our Lifetime Mortgages let you release equity in your home to do more of the things you enjoy


What is a Lifetime Mortgage?

A way to release equity from your home.

A lifetime mortgage is a way to borrow money, as a loan secured against your home. It’s a type of equity release. The loan, plus interest, doesn’t have to be paid until the last borrower dies or moves out of the home into long-term care. Lifetime mortgages can be complicated, so to ensure you understand all the features and benefits, we won’t let you buy a lifetime mortgage until you've taken financial advice.
