Although there is no maximum age for applying for a mortgage, each lender will have their own limits such as a maximum age at which you can take out a mortgage and a maximum age for when the mortgage term ends.
If you are about to retire or have retired, your lender will need to ensure that you can keep up repayments over the full term, based on your retirement income from pensions and other investments.
Most lenders that accept older borrowers offer mortgages with fixed interest rates or rates that track the Bank of England base rate.
Other options such as offset, cashback, discounted and stepped mortgages are available too.
Whatever your requirements are as a more mature borrower, get in touch, we can help.
