Saga Regular Drawdown Lifetime Mortgage

A unique new product that provides a monthly cash sum to supplement your income, so you can keep doing the things that matter to you most.

Use our free online calculator which will provide an indication of the maximum amount you may be able to release.

How does it work?

The Saga Regular Drawdown Lifetime Mortgage is available if you’re aged between 60 and 80 (younger applicant if borrowing jointly) and own a UK property worth at least £150,000. It provides you with an initial lump sum followed by monthly payouts for your chosen period of time or until you reach the maximum we can offer – all tax-free. The amount we can lend you depends on your age and the value of your property.

For example:

Mr Austen is 65 and owns a property worth £300,000. He decides to release the maximum amount available – £91,200 – with the minimum initial lump sum of £10,000. 


So he could get a maximum monthly cash sum of:

 
Initial lump sum

Term     Monthly cash sum
 £10,000

15 years    

£451

 £10,000

10 years    

£676

 £10,000

5 years    

£1,353

Of course there’s no obligation to take the maximum amount – you might choose to take a small monthly cash sum of at least £200 to supplement your income for a few years, or perhaps you’d like a bigger lump sum at the beginning, you even have an opportunity each year to change your monthly payout – above all, the product’s designed to suit you and your changing needs. 


As it is a lifetime mortgage, you still own your home and have the right to live there for the rest of your life. The loan and interest are normally repaid from the sale of the house when you die or move into long-term care.

Some things you need to know...

A lifetime mortgage is a loan secured against your home. The sum borrowed, plus accumulated interest, will usually be repayable when the property is sold after you, or both of you if borrowing jointly, die or move permanently into long-term care.

Equity release is not right for everyone. It will reduce the value of your estate and may affect your state benefit entitlement. Your adviser will carry out a full financial review of your personal circumstances and talk you through any possible impact on your circumstances.

What can I use the money for?

There are many reasons for choosing equity release, and what you do with yours is almost entirely up to you. This equity release product is unique in that it combines an initial lump sum with ongoing monthly payouts. 

So, you might use your tax-free lump sum for:

  • Home improvements
  • A new car
  • Gifts to family
  • A special holiday
  • Paying off existing debts (though this may end up costing more in the long term).

And your monthly tax-free payouts could be used for:

  • Topping up your income
  • Maintaining your lifestyle
  • Paying the bills
  • Family days out
  • Birthdays and special treats...

...whatever it is that means you can keep living the way you choose.
