A lifetime mortgage creates a debt secured against your home and is repaid in full, along with the interest, from the sale of the property when you die or move into long-term care.

The Retirement Lending Advisers is not part of Legal & General, they are a separate company that advise only on our Lifetime Mortgages. If you use them they won't charge you an advice fee.
It's a big decision and there are many factors to consider. If you're interested, the next step is to get advice from a specialist lifetime mortgage adviser, who will check that you're eligible and advise you on your options. You can talk to your own adviser or you can use The Retirement Lending Advisers.
You should consider other savings and investments before taking a lifetime mortgage and look into other options to borrow money that may be more cost effective.
We charge interest on the total loan plus any interest already charged. This means the amount you owe grows quickly and reduces the equity left in the property and the value of any inheritance and may affect your entitlement to state benefits
If you make a joint lifetime mortgage application, then the property sale happens when the last named person, living in the property dies or moves into long-term care.
Our lifetime mortgage calculator makes it easy to see how much money you could release from your home with a Legal & General lifetime mortgage.

For our customers who were charged an advice fee by an independent financial adviser, the majority paid £995 or more. This fee could have been saved if they had used The Retirement Lending Advisers to advise them on their Legal & General Lifetime Mortgage.
Savings are based on advice fees paid by Legal & General customers between March and August 2016. Independent financial advisers can give advice on all lifetime mortgages available in the market. Advice fees vary and any actual savings will depend on your individual circumstances.
We are members of the Equity Release Council and our products meet their standards. So you can have complete confidence in our Lifetime Mortgages.
