Equity Release

Did you know that one of the Equity Release solutions is called a lifetime mortgage?

So, like any other standard mortgage, you can take one out on your own home or on a buy-to-let property. If you are over 55 you may be able to release some cash (equity) tied up in the value of your home.

A lifetime mortgage gives you flexibility depending on your financial needs. You can decide whether you want to make monthly payments or not. You can also choose a mortgage that has a cash reserve facility for later use.

Here at Probity Mortgage Services, we specialise in later life lending and will consider all the standard residential options available, including:

  • Extending your existing mortgage term with the same or a different lender.
  • We will also consider a Retirement Interest Only mortgage, which is assessed on your affordability and does require a monthly mortgage payment. The good news about this option is that the total amount you owe never increases.

The benefits:

  • You still own your home, and you can stay in it for the rest of your life.
  • The money you release is tax-free.
  • You will never owe more than the value of your home because of the “no negative equity” guarantee.
  • Interest rates fixed for life.
  • You can downsize and move to a new property providing the new property is acceptable to your lender.
  • You have the right to make penalty free payments on the loan so as to stop the debt increasing.

Our standard service includes personal face to face appointments at a time and place that is comfortable and convenient for you.

We will complete a full financial review and consider all your alternatives. We will also complete a full benefit assessment to ensure that you know exactly what means tested benefits you may or may not be entitled to.

We will then advise and recommend the best solution for you.

We will only charge you our advice fee on completion so if your loan never completes, you won’t owe us anything.

As the entire process can be stressful, we do strongly recommend that you include your family in any big decisions regarding the family home and potential inheritance.

There may be a fee for mortgage advice. The precise amount will depend on your circumstances and will be agreed with you before proceeding but es mate this to be £1500

This is where you sell part or all of your home for a lump sum of cash. This amount is usually significantly less than the actual market value of your home and so for this reason is not as popular as the lifetime mortgage.
