Our Retirement mortgages are aimed to meet the unique needs of older borrowers that are either looking to release equity or move home. Instead of having a fixed end date, if necessary the amount borrowed can be paid back from the sale of the property when the borrower dies or moves into alternative accommodation such as long term care. During the term of the mortgage the borrower is responsible for meeting the monthly payments which can be interest only or capital & interest repayment.
