Lifetime Mortgage Drawdown+:

Drawdown+ features

We know that control and choice on income levels in retirement is important for your clients - particularly as the cost of living continues to rise.

Our Lifetime Mortgage Drawdown+ allows your client to borrow a portion of their property value in the form of an initial loan, with the option to release further withdrawals from the pre-agreed reserve.

The product key features are:
  • No interest repayments throughout the life of the loan – the loan and rolled-up interest is repaid when your client dies or moves into long-term care.
  • Minimum age 60 – maximum age 95.
  • The minimum we will lend to start with is £10,000.
  • Further withdrawals are on request but not more than once per calendar month, with a £1,500 minimum and £70,000 maximum.
  • Additional borrowing may be available (this is not guaranteed). Any additional borrowing will only be considered once the facility is exhausted and will be in the form of a one-off advance, not a facility extension.
  • Total maximum lending of up to £1,500,000.
  • For joint mortgages, ERC free repayment within 3 years of first death or move into long term care.
  • Interest rate linked to LTV.
  • A ‘No Negative Equity’ guarantee.
  • Fixed early repayment charges ending after 10 years.
  • Six repayments per year totalling up to 10% of total advances after 12 months, free of any early repayment charge.
  • Support your clients and their families with LV= Doctor Services and Care Navigator, our added value benefits.

Rates

Our rates are based on level of the cash facility your client chooses. The table shows the rates for each level of initial borrowing only. See the full list of our LTVs for each level. 

The table shows the rates for each level of borrowing. Rates apply for initial borrowing and further withdrawals from the pre-agreed facility. The interest rate applied to any further advances will be dependent on both the total LTV and prevailing interest rates at the time of the advance. It’s likely to be higher than the rate applicable to new customers.

Interest is compounded annually. If a repayment is made partway through the year, we charge interest daily to calculate the amount owed.
