Early repayment charges structure

We believe that customers should know on the day they proceed with an application exactly what the financial consequences will be, if they decide (or need) to redeem the lifetime mortgage early. LV= was the first lender to offer fixed early repayment charges. This allows us to offer complete transparency and certainty for customers.

Our approach to early repayment charges is very simple. We charge a set percentage of the original loan amount which does not include any accrued interest as detailed in the table

Year of early repayment

% of the amount repaid







Early repayment charges do not apply if:

  • The borrower moves house and transfers their mortgage to the new property
  • The last surviving borrower dies
  • The last surviving borrower moves permanently into long term care
  • The total debt is reduced or fully repaid using the money from the insurance company following damage to the property
  • A borrower (on a joint mortgage) passes away or moves into long term care and a repayment is made within 3 years of the date of death or move.
  • Up to six repayments per year totalling up to 10% of the original loan advance, once the lifetime mortgage has been running for 12 months
  • Downsize protection included for full repayment from year 5 onwards*
