With a Reversion Mortgage you sell part or all of your home to a home reversion provider in return for a lump sum. You have the right to continue living in the property until you pass, rent free, but you have to agree to maintain and insure it. You can ring-fence a percentage of your property for later use, possibly for inheritance. The percentage you retain will always remain the same regardless of the change in property values, unless you decide to take further cash releases. At the end of the plan your property is sold and the sale proceeds are shared according to the remaining proportions of ownership.

Most people who take out equity release use a lifetime mortgage. Usually you don’t have to make any repayments while you’re alive, interest ‘rolls up’ (unpaid interest is added to the loan). This means the debt can increase quite quickly over a period of time.
However, some lifetime mortgages do now offer you the option to pay all or some of the interest, and some let you pay off the interest and capital. In the same way ordinary mortgages vary from lender to lender, so do lifetime mortgages.
