Our Lump Sum Plus Lifetime Mortgage
Our Lump Sum Plus Lifetime Mortgage is designed to help clients who want access to the maximum possible share of the money locked up in their home.
The product offers two loan to value (LTV) tiers:
- Our standard LTV gives your clients quick and easy access to a larger lump sum than would be available through our Drawdown Lifetime Mortgage, but usually at a higher interest rate.
- Our enhanced LTV uses our expert underwriting capability to give clients the potential to borrow an even higher amount based on their medical and lifestyle conditions.
Your client won't need to make any regular repayments on the money borrowed, and will continue to own their home, benefiting from any increase in its value.
How does it work?
The interest payable on our Lump Sum Plus Lifetime Mortgage is fixed at the time the mortgage is taken out, and is guaranteed not to change regardless of what happens to interest rates in the future.
Interest is charged on the lump sum cash advance, and will accumulate on a compound basis. The mortgage plus interest is only repaid once your client dies or moves permanently into care.
Use our Lump Sum Plus Lifetime Mortgage Calculator to find out the maximum amount and loan-to-value (LTV) rate available to them.
Please note that the interest rate on our Lump Sum Plus Lifetime Mortgage is usually higher than the rate charged under our Drawdown product. Clients can borrow a higher amount with the Lump Sum Plus Lifetime Mortgage, which could be invaluable if they need access to the money – but the value of their mortgage will be higher than an equivalent Drawdown Lifetime Mortgage product at the time it is repaid.
