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 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 6.26% 6.44%
Second Home Voluntary Select 6.45% 6.64%

You can download our Guide to Equity Release, which gives an overview of what a lifetime mortgage is and how it could meet your needs. Our Guide to our Buy-to-Let Products explains our range of Buy-to-Let mortgages and their features in more detail.
