Key Partnerships: Equity Release Interest Payment Options

The roll-up of interest is a common concern for some clients taking a lifetime mortgage, especially if they are looking to leave an inheritance for their loved ones.  There may be a solution!

With some lifetime mortgage plans, clients can choose to pay part or all of the interest each month, this feature is called 'interest serviced'.

  • If clients choose to pay all of the interest each month, the interest will not roll up.
  • If clients choose to pay part of the interest each month, it will reduce the impact of the roll-up interest.

The interest payments are not compulsory so if a client decides they do not want to make these payments anymore, the plan can be converted to interest roll-up.
