A Lifetime Mortgage allows you to release a tax free cash lump from your home to spend and use as and how you wish. There are normally no repayments to make to the loan with the interest being added to the loan each month. The interest rate is normally fixed for the life of the loan and the loan is only repayable when the property is sold, which normally happens when you die or go in to long term care. In the case of joint applicants this normally happens when the second applicant dies or goes in to long term care.
