How does a Lifetime Mortgage assist in funding divorce? 

Paying off an ex-partner in a divorce is generally one of the most difficult financial challenges that anybody will face in their lives. 
 
For most of us, the most valuable asset we own is our home, which not only represents our wealth but also memories, a place to live and financial security. 
 
Over the last several years, lifetime mortgages have helped thousands of clients to fund divorces. 
 
We at Silver Wealth specialise in helping you to access a proportion of the equity in your home in a tax-free way to fund your divorce settlement. 
 
You do not need to be working to be eligible for a lifetime mortgage divorce solution. You may be retired, unemployed or even in poor health. However, you must be a homeowner and over the age of 55. 

Benefits of a Lifetime Mortgage Plan 

Lifetime mortgages allow homeowners aged over 55 to access equity from their homes, without having to make repayments until they pass away or go into long-term care. 
 
Equity Release Council-approved plans offer the following safeguards: 
Security of tenure for life 
Interest rates that are capped or fixed for life at the point of release 
The right to move home 
A 'No Negative Equity' Guarantee 
The ability to make voluntary penalty-free repayments, which can reduce interest costs 
 
There are two main options available:  
 
1) Lump Sum – An initial one-off lump sum is raised against the property to pay for care needs. 
 
2) A Drawdown – A reserves facility is set up and smaller lump sum payments are taken out as and when needed to pay for care costs. 
Lifetime mortgages are a highly regulated financial solution that allows homeowners over the age of 55yrs, to access the wealth of equity tied up in their property. Equity refers to the value of the property that is owned outright by the homeowner, minus any outstanding mortgage or loans secured against it. 
 
The most common form of equity release solution is a lifetime mortgage, where a loan is secured against the property. 
 
The loan, along with any accrued interest, is repaid when the last homeowner passes away or moves into long-term care. Funds released are Tax-Free. 
Modern Lifetime mortgages are at the forefront of financial planning by providing access to tax-free funds to meet your objectives with no repayment required during your lifetime and whilst you retain full home ownership. 
 
New lifetime mortgage plans of today offer great flexibility in that you can choose to make repayments up to 10% per annum penalty-free which will result in slowing down or stopping the roll-up of interest similar to an interest-only or capital and repayment mortgage.
