Lifestyle Options

A tax free lump sum

Our Lifestyle Options provide your customer with a one-off, cash lump sum. They are traditional roll-up Lifetime Mortgages for customers who want a high LTV or low interest rate with no cashback. 

The interest rolls-up and is added to the outstanding loan balance each month, so no payments are due.
