Second Home Options
Our Second Home Options provide you with a one-off cash payment which is tax-free. Unlike most lifetime mortgages, our Second Home Options are secured against a Seond Home property in the UK.
The equity you release from your property is yours to do whatever you like with, and our range of products means you can choose whether you wish to make any repayments:
Second Home Lifestyle
If you choose to take out our Second Home Lifestyle Option, you won't make any interest payments. Instead, the interest rolls-up and is added to the mortgage each month.
Second Home Interest Select
Unlike traditional roll-up lifetime mortgages, our Second Home Interest Select lifetime mortgages allow you to pay some, or all, of the interest charged each month, for a period of your choice. This allows you to reduce the size of the rolled-up loan significantly.
If your financial circumstances change, you can choose to stop making the interest payments at any time. Your financial adviser will be able to talk you through the implications of this.
Second Home Voluntary Select
Our Second Home Voluntary Select Options allow you to pay back up to 10% of the initial loan amount each year, without being charged an early repayment charge. This means that you can choose how much interest to pay, and you can choose to pay back some capital each year too.
The interest rates on our Second Home Options are currently:
|Product||Monthly interest rate (MER)||Annual interest rate (AER)|
|Second Home Lifestyle||6.07%||6.24%|
|Second Home Interest Select||6.26%||6.44%|
|Second Home Voluntary Select||6.45%||6.64%|
