Lifetime Mortgage Drawdown Lifestyle:


Drawdown Lifestyle features

We understand that your clients’ circumstances may change throughout retirement.

Our Lifetime Mortgage Drawdown Lifestyle comes with a range of flexible features to adapt to their needs, helping them to live confidently in retirement.

Your client can 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. They can also protect a set percentage of their property value to leave as a guaranteed inheritance.

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 55 – maximum age 90.
  • 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 £500 minimum.
  • 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 £1.5million.
  • For joint mortgages, ERC free repayment within four 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 eight years.
  • Unlimited number of repayments with a minimum of £50 totalling up to 11% of total advances each year, free of any early repayment charge.
  • Downsize protection included for full repayment from year five onwards.
  • The option to protect up to 99% of the equity of the property by adding Inheritance Protection.
  • Support your clients and their families with LV= Doctor Services and Care Navigator, our added value benefits.

Important information

Here are some important things to know about our Lifetime Mortgage Drawdown Lifestyle:
  • Access to the cash facility is not guaranteed - there are certain circumstances where it will be reduced or removed. For full details, see our Lifetime Mortgage Drawdown Lifestyle Terms and Conditions.
  • All further withdrawals are on request - limited to a £500 minimum. Only one withdrawal will be permitted each month.
  • Each time your client makes a withdrawal, it will be based on the prevailing interest rate applicable at the time.
  • Additional borrowing will only be considered when the existing reserve has been exhausted and a new property valuation has been undertaken.
  • Additional borrowing will be subject to a minimum of £5,000.
  • Your client can repay some or their entire mortgage at any time, but an early repayment charge may apply within the first eight years.
  • It's important that your client speaks with their family before taking out an Equity Release product, particularly any beneficiaries in their Will.
  • The interest rate is fixed for the life of the loan. The loan plus interest can add up very quickly.
  • This is a lifetime mortgage. To understand the features and risks, ask for a personalised illustration.
  • Inheritance Protection can be reduced or increased in the future if needed, but can’t be added to your client’s mortgage after it’s completed.
