Find out if you could save thousands of pounds in interest by switching your plan and taking advantage of lower rates

If you have an existing lifetime mortgage that’s more than a year old, then you could review your plan to see if you could access a better plan than was previously available to you.

Current market conditions

Average lifetime mortgage interest rates are currently some of the lowest we’ve seen which could save you thousands of pounds in interest over the course of the plan compared to your current plan.

Plus, Nationwide have reported average UK house prices have risen by 13% in the last 3 years, meaning that you could release more money from your home to spend on anything else you wish.
