    This is the maximum amount based on the information you provided. Your mortgage adviser will take you through the application process and will calculate the amount you can afford to borrow based on your income after the deduction of those expenses and commitments. Further restrictions may apply for specialist products.

Our Retirement mortgages are aimed to meet the needs of older borrowers who are either looking to release equity or borrow with no upper age limit. This mortgage has no set end date, so you can have the peace of mind that your mortgage term isn’t coming to an end. 

The mortgage will be repaid from the sale of your home when you (or, for joint mortgages, each of you) die or move into sheltered accommodation or residential care or live with a family member in another property. During the term of the mortgage the borrower(s) is responsible for meeting the monthly payments which will be on an interest only basis.

The minimum age for this product is 55, and you must have a source of income; typically from a pension, so that interest payments are affordable for the term of the mortgage which may be up to the end of your life.

The Society can lend a minimum of £50,000 and up to a maximum of £500,000. The amount you can borrow will depend upon your needs and your ability to repay the interest each month. Our Advisers will conduct an assessment of your income and expenditure so as to guide you on how much the Society may be able to lend to you.

The Society can lend up to 50% of your property’s value, which will be confirmed by a professional property valuation.

The Society will require that anyone considering this product take independent legal and financial advice before entering into the mortgage contract.
