What is a retirement-interest only mortgage?


Fund your dreams without disrupting your life

A retirement interest only mortgage could allow you to access some of the value in your home without selling up. It could also allow you to re-mortgage if you are coming to the end of your existing term and are heading into retirement. There are also a range of other later life lending mortgage options to consider. Either way Tembo can help.

No nasty surprises further down the line

Interest is payable monthly with retirement interest only mortgages. This means that the amount you’ve borrowed won’t change or mount up over the lifetime of the loan. Plus, we’ll evaluate income, pensions and expenditure to make sure it’s affordable and ethical for you. We’ll also assess whether there are other mortgages that may be more suitable given your specific circumstances.

Flexible terms, bespoke to you & yours

Retirement interest only mortgages have no end date and can run until the house is sold or the loan is repaid. Customers can still benefit from fixed rate deals though, which are available from 3-years upward. The cherry on top? Early repayment charges are significantly lower than seen in lifetime mortgages or equity release.
