Other ways to unlock your property wealth

Retirement Interest-Only Mortgages
A Retirement Interest-Only Mortgage is available to homeowners over the age of 55. You can borrow a tax-free sum from your home and only pay the interest each month. The full amount is then repaid when you pass away or enter long-term care.
Traditional mortgages
Being over the age of 55 won’t stop you from getting a mortgage. For some homeowners, a traditional mortgage could be suitable. With options ranging from capital repayment and interest-only, to a mixture of the two, you can be empowered to achieve your goals.
Downsizing
Borrowing from your home’s value isn’t the right choice for everyone. You might be considering a move to a smaller home with lower costs and release equity that way. Consider the financial as well as emotional costs when thinking of this option.
Releasing equity with a Lifetime Mortgage will reduce the value of your estate and could affect your entitlement to means-tested benefits. If you miss a payment with a Retirement Interest-Only or traditional mortgage, your home may be at risk of repossession as a result.
