How are Lifetime Mortgages adapting?

The Equity Release Council confirmed this week there are now 665 mortgage products available in the marketplace which is an increase of 65.8% from 401 products in just 2 years since 2020 as lenders continue to provide more flexibility and innovative features to provide a better solution for more customer circumstances.

One provider has just launched a new lifetime mortgage with early repayment charges that only last for the first 5 years, making the product more reflective of a standard mortgage with an unsurpassed increase in potential LTV ratio of 60.7% for those clients looking for the maximum cash release (subject to age)
