Guaranteed detailsThe maximum loan is not guaranteed, there are circumstances when the maximum loan may be reduced or removed, which are defined in the Terms and Conditions.
Withdrawal frequencyAs requested (but cannot be more than once per calendar month) until maximum loan runs out.
Maximum LoanWe offer various borrowing levels for your client to choose from. The maximum cash reserve is determined as a percentage of the property value, using the age of the youngest applicant and the borrowing level selected.

Read our loan to value scale.
The interest rate for each withdrawal will be the rate we’re offering at the time your client makes the withdrawal; each withdrawal may have a different interest rate. The rate will depend on the level of borrowing agreed up front. For example, if your client chooses the Drawdown+ Standard 4 level, then future withdrawals will be on the Drawdown+ Standard 4 new business rate. There are no additional charges for taking withdrawals; all the costs are covered up front.

Early repayment charges

If your client needs to redeem their lifetime mortgage early, there may be an early repayment charge.

We were the first lender to offer fixed early repayment charges. That means we can offer complete transparency and certainty for your client. We calculate charges on the percentage of total amount of the loan to be repaid – it doesn’t include any accrued interest. Charges are based on the initial loan date, excluding additional borrowing. For example, if your client takes a withdrawal 6 years after the initial loan, and repays it 7 years after the initial loan, the early repayment charge will be 3% of that withdrawal.

When charges don't apply

Early repayment charges do not apply if:
  • The borrower moves house and transfers their mortgage to the new property.
  • The last surviving borrower moves permanently into long term care.
  • The last surviving borrower dies.
  • A borrower (on a joint mortgage) passes away or moves into long term care and a repayment is made within three years of the date of death or move.
  • The borrower fully repays after 5 years and moves to a property they wished to transfer their lifetime mortgage to that did not meet our lending criteria. 
  • The total debt is reduced or fully repaid using the money from an insurance company following damage to the property. 
  • We no longer offer new Lifetime Mortgage Drawdown+ products and access to the cash facility is subsequently removed for all Drawdown+ customers and the borrower decides to fully repay the lifetime mortgage. 
  • The borrower chooses to make repayments totaling up to 10% of the original advance each year. 

Please note terms and conditions apply. For more information see our Drawdown+ terms and conditions.
