Lifetime Mortgages For Over 55’s – The Cost Of Buying The Wrong Product – Part 2 …

Would you pay a £10,000 redemption penalty to move Lifetime Mortgage?

One national newspaper recently reported that a couple had recently done exactly that and paid a £10,000 redemption penalty to escape their “Sky-High Equity Release Rate”, in order to secure a better long term interest rate deal on their Lifetime Mortgage.

If you visit part 1 of this article you will see that in one of our recent case examples, we found a 0.82% difference between the cheapest and most expensive product for the same amount of loan. The overall difference in interest paid over 22 years would have been £60,000 which I’m sure you would agree is hugely significant.

Without any doubt if an existing Lifetime Mortgage holder had been locked into that higher interest rate, it would have been worth considering paying a redemption penalty to move. This of course is not “conventional” financial advice and any such decision should only be made after taking professional expert advice.

This recent news story raises a highly relevant and topical issue in my opinion of whether it is time to consider the unthinkable? Are Lifetime Mortgages really for Lifetime? Should people on higher long term “Historic” interest rates be re-considering their Lifetime Mortgage options?

With Interest Rates currently so low, it’s apparent that existing Lifetime Mortgage holders, particularly those with larger outstanding loans, should be asking a “Lifetime Mortgage Expert” to run some calculations for them. Are you paying too much interest on your Lifetime Mortgage?

    Products …

    The concept of Lifetime Mortgages, Retirement Mortgages and Regulated Equity Release for over 55’s has grown massively over the last 20 years. It is very true that the initial products that were released into the market received poor press and were not popular. However, in more recent times these products have become highly regulated, with product providers having to meet industry standards and provide certain assurances and guarantees over negative equity – we think this is a very good thing.

    Qualications …

    Financial Advisers also have to pass a higher level qualification to be able to arrange Lifetime Mortgages, Retirement Mortgages and Regulated Equity Release. However, we have noticed that consumers have been left with a difficult choice between “chicken farm” financial advice by companies offering these products in huge volume, or local financial advisers who rarely are asked for advice in this area. Your alternative is to approach Chris Morgan, the UK’s leading Lifetime Mortgage Expert, who specialises in mortgage products for people over 55 without charging a broker fee*.
