Equity release, How it works
The Seniors Money Lifetime Loan allows homeowners to borrow a percentage of their home’s value, with the percentage determined by the homeowner’s age.
Interest on the loan is fixed and added to the loan on a monthly basis, meaning the loan value grows over time.
Borrowers retain full ownership of their house and are protected by the “No Negative Equity Guarantee” which promises the loan pay-out will not exceed the net proceeds of the sale of the house.
To qualify, borrowers must be registered owners of the property and have reached age 60 or older.
