What Are Our Options?
There is a growing number of traditional lenders (particularly building societies) in the mainstream mortgage market who will lend beyond the traditional retirement age of 65 subject to affordability.
This therefore requires suitable income sources ie employment, self-employment and pensions (state and private) with some even using investment and rental property profits. If your pension income in particular is of a good level then there is every chance we could find you a mortgage up to an age of 80 / 85.
Later Life Mortgages
If you are of retirement age and wish to take out a mortgage, there are now more choices than ever before. In order to be accepted for a mortgage, you will need to pass affordability criteria, meaning a good source of income (earned income, pensions or savings income) will be required.

Retirement Interest Only Mortgages (RIO)
With a standard interest-only mortgage, only the interest is being repaid every month for a fixed period. With an RIO, there is no fixed term; instead the loan will be repaid when you sell the property, move into long-term care or pass away. If this or any other equity release schemes are of interest to you, please get in touch.
