Key advantages of a lump sum lifetime mortgage


  • You receive a large payment of tax-free cash that you can spend as you wish.
  • There are no monthly payments to worry about.
  • If the value of your home increases, you may be able to release more equity.

The Risks

  • Compound interest is added over time, so the final interest payment can be large.
  • Taking more equity from your property will reduce the inheritance you pass onto your beneficiaries.
  •  It is likely that you won’t be eligible to claim means-tested benefits if you receive a large amount of money with a lump sum lifetime mortgage.

Safeguarding your future

With all lifetime mortgage plans, you will always retain 100% ownership of your home. And the ‘negative equity guarantee’ means that even if the value of your property decreases, you will never owe more than you borrowed or pass debt on to your family.

How a lifetime lump sum mortgage works

Lump sum lifetime mortgages are a popular choice for people who want to receive a one-off payment of tax-free cash, without having to worry about monthly payments. The money can be used in any way you wish, from making home improvements, travelling, or helping your loved ones onto the property ladder.

Interest accrues on the loan amount and will only be repaid when the plan ends, which is when the last homeowner passes away or enters long-term care. We always advise you to involve your family when considering equity release and we’re very happy to accommodate them in all our meetings with you.

Eligibility for a lump sum lifetime mortgage depends on three things – the age of the youngest homeowner, the value of the property and where you live. Each lender will have slightly different criteria and we will help you navigate the process in the most straightforward way.
