Retirement mortgages

We’re proud to support mortgage customers of all ages and our Retirement Interest Only mortgages are aimed to meet the needs of borrowers aged 55 and above who are looking to release equity, remortgage with us or move home. Customers must have a household income of a minimum of £20,000 per annum (after deductions), typically a pension. Our retirement mortgage has no set end date, giving peace of mind that your mortgage term isn’t coming to an end. Here you’ll find all the information you need to know about our Retirement mortgages.

Mortgages are secured against your home. You could lose your home if you do not keep up payments on your mortgage.

  • Representative example

    Representative example: A mortgage of £50,000.00 taken out for a period of 18 years on an interest only basis.
    Monthly instalments: £278.75 per month for 215 months.
    Total amount payable: £110,031.25
    Total amount of credit: £50,000.00
    The total amount payable includes a closing fee of £100.
    The overall cost for comparison is 6.9% representative APRC.
    This example is based on our Retirement Interest Only , Lifetime 1.70% discount (without POA) mortgage. It is based on our current Standard Variable Rate of 8.39% with no fees added to the mortgage.
    The APRC is based on a mortgage which runs for 18 years. The 18 year term and the APRC are used for illustration purposes only, as the Retirement Mortgage does not have a set term. The actual APRC will depend on how long the mortgage actually runs for. To compare mortgages from different lenders you will need to obtain illustrations for the same term.
    Please ask for a personalised illustration for your own particular requirements.
