Hodge Lifetime have released a mortgage product first for the UK market called The 55+ RIO, which will become available from the 11th of June. ‘RIO’ stands for Retirement Interest Only Mortgage.
It is a residential interest only mortgage for over 55’s with no end date or term, which means it will take a borrower through to the end of their life and enables interest only payments until the borrower dies or goes into long term care when the capital the has to be repaid. This is not an equity release mortgage.
This mortgage is based on your main residence and is not a Buy to Let product:
