How Do You Calculate Equity Release?
The amount of equity you can release from your home will depend on the age of the youngest applicant:
AGE OF YOUNGEST APPLICANT
A lender will first consider your age or the age of the youngest borrower if the mortgage is in joint names. For joint applications, both borrowers need to be over the age of 55. As this is a mortgage product designed for later life, you will be able to access more of the equity in your estate as you get older. However, other factors will impact how much equity you can access.
VALUE OF YOUR HOME
Your property value during your application will be essential for the calculations. Your home must be worth at least £75,000 at the time of your application. Other factors could impact how much you can borrow, including if you own a new property or an older property, the condition of the property, and the type of property. Most lenders will also want to know if you have a freehold or a shorthold property.
TYPES OF EQUITY RELEASE
There are different equity release lending options available that will impact how much you can borrow. You can release tax-free cash in a lump sum or access the release in smaller amounts, known as a drawdown. The latter is a popular form of equity release as it will reduce your tax burden. Other options include choosing an “interest payment” option, which will protect you if the interest rate rises.
One final factor that lenders will consider is your health and wellness. This mortgage option lets you release equity from your home until you either pass away or move into long-term care. Your health will, therefore, play a role in deciding how much you can release. Certain health conditions will make you eligible for an enhanced equity release product.
Mortgage lenders will typically allow you to release between 20% and 60% of the value of your home. This will allow you to access a lump sum without monthly interest repayments. Your age, value of your home, property type and health will all be taken into consideration.
20% to 60% Equity Release

What Are the Criteria for a Lifetime Mortgage?
Looking at the criteria for a lifetime mortgage, one must typically:
Be at least 55 years of age (though some lenders might demand an older age).
Own and inhabit a property valuated at a certain threshold (often above £75,000), which could possibly be endorsed by the Equity Release Council.
Ensure the property is in satisfactory condition and situated in the UK.
Possess ample equity in the property or estate.
Demonstrate a stable income or sufficient savings to manage potential interest payments across the loan’s term.
Additional considerations like credit history, health status, and existing financial commitments may also permeate a lender’s assessment.

Lifetime Mortgage FAQs:
Find the answers to the most common questions about lifetime mortgages and equity releases below:
The amount you can borrow on a lifetime mortgage, even on a holiday home, is contingent upon the age of the youngest applicant in instances of a joint lifetime mortgage, safeguarding your lifetime mortgage right. Starting at 27% from age 55, the borrowing cap increases up to 56% from the age of 86 while typically hovering around 50% of your property’s value, although this can fluctuate depending on the lender and existing mortgage considerations along with other circumstances.
The interest rate on a lifetime mortgage can vary depending on the lender and your individual circumstances. It is typically a fixed rate for the duration of the loan, but it can also be variable. On average, the interest rates for a lifetime mortgage range from 3% to 6%, but this may also depend on factors such as age, property value, and chosen product.
Remember that no monthly repayments will be required for this mortgage type, as the interest will be collected when your property is sold. The lender will own your property after you pass away or the youngest homeowner passes away. They will recoup the value of the loan secured against the property and then distribute the remaining amount. It’s possible to protect some of the value of your home for your family.
Even after taking out a lifetime mortgage, you preserve full ownership of your home, retaining the right to reside in and maintain the property as per the norm. The lender will merely sustain a legal charge over the property, asserting their right to claim the agreed amount when the loan is repaid, often after the property’s sale.
Upon passing or transitioning into long-term care, your lifetime mortgage will be settled through your property’s sale. If safeguarded by a guarantee assuring a percentage of the final sale price, subsequent equity will be allocated to your beneficiaries. Absent a guarantee, the remaining equity will revert to your estate. In instances of long-term care entry, the property’s sale might be deferred until your permanent departure or passing.
