Retirement mortgages

Our retirement mortgage range allows flexibility for borrowers in later life with an interest only mortgage that allows downsizing as the repayment vehicle.

For those looking to borrow into retirement, we understand there is a lot to consider. The Building Societies Association have produced a helpful guide for older borrowers providing information on the types of options available and things to consider.

All applications will be individually assessed by a skilled underwriter giving an efficient and personal service.
