With a Lifetime Mortgage Drawdown you can access your money with a lot of flexibility. Rather than just receiving a one-off lump sum, you have the option to release your cash over time, as and when you need it. Because you only pay interest on the cash that you have taken, these products can often prove to be a cost-effective method.
This is a lifetime mortgage. To understand the features and risks ask for a personalised illustration.

The amount that you will leave as an inheritance will be reduced each time you release money
If you wish to pay off the equity release product early, you may have to pay an early repayment charge, these differ from product to product
