"The essence of the Fair Mortgages service is professional independent mortgage and protection advice brought to you by a team of specialist advisers and experienced administration support. 

As your mortgage is such an important transaction, good advice is imperative.

Interest Only Retirement Mortgage

If you have sufficient equity in your property (we work with lenders who will go up to 57% LTV) then an interest only mortgage may be an option for you.

Getting a mortgage when retired

If you have retired and wish to purchase a new home you may find that getting a mortgage as a retiree can be more difficult. You will need to provide your affordability criteria based upon your income from things such as any pensions or investments you have. However many mortgage providers have both a maximum age limit at which someone can take out a mortgage and also an upper age limit by which a borrower must completely repay their mortgage.

While these factors can make getting a new mortgage or remortgaging more difficult there are a selection of lenders who have much higher age limits, and a few where age is not an issue when based upon certain criteria. Using the services of an independent mortgage adviser may help you find the right product in these circumstances.

Equity release

Equity release products are not right for everyone, they are a large financial step and should be carefully considered and will reduce how much an individual can leave behind to their beneficiaries in their estate. However, they can provide a way for people over 55 to be able to access some of the value of their home without having to move out.

There are two main types of equity release scheme:

  • Lifetime Mortgages: Where you take out a loan for a portion of your home’s value, this debt and any interest that has accumulated on it is normally repaid through the sale of the property after you either die or permanently move into care. The amount you can borrow with a lifetime mortgage will depend on your age, and your partners if applicable. Lifetime mortgages that offer a ‘no negative equity’ guarantee mean that even if the value of the debt becomes larger than the market value of your home, your estate will never be charged more than the amount it eventually sells for.
  • Home Reversion Schemes: These types of scheme involve the owner selling the property a reversion company, who then guarantees the original owner the right to continue living in the property until they either die or move into care.
