With a Lifetime Mortgage you take out a loan which is secured against your property. You can either take the money in one lump sum or in stages as and when you need it.
Once you have received the funds interest will start to be charged at the agreed interest rate.
Normally this interest will accumulate each year on a compound basis meaning that interest is charged each year on the amount of the loan as well as interest accrued in previous years. The more years that pass before the loan is eventually repaid, the bigger the final total interest charge. The total loan plus accrued interest (and any applicable fees and charges) is repaid from
the proceeds of the sale of your property when you die or if you decide to move permanently into long-term care.
The affect of compound interest is that the total loan to be repaid could increase significantly to the point that it is equal to the full value of your property and no inheritance will remain for your beneficiaries.
There are a few providers who offer a lifetime mortgage with added flexibility giving you the freedom to release cash to spend in any way you wish, but with the option to make monthly
payments to cover some or all of the interest.
Choosing to pay some or all of the interest during the lifetime of the plan reduces the amount owed when the property comes to be sold, leaving a greater amount for your beneficiaries to benefit from compared to a standard lifetime mortgage where interest rolls up.
How much you pay every month is up to you, normally starting at a minimum of 1% or £25 up to 100% of the interest, so you can select a payment that’s affordable for you.
If you are unable to continue to make payments each month then it is possible to stop and convert it back to a standard Lifetime mortgage where you pay no monthly payments.
It is not then normally possible to convert back once this has been changed.
