The term can be fixed at the outset to tie in with your retirement plans.
As you have chosen to make monthly payments, the balance will therefore remain the constant throughout the term of the plan.
If you retire early, you can use these plans to delay the ‘roll-up’ effect until later in lifeGreater choice of products as we also have access to the whole of the mainstream mortgage marketA fixed rate can be selected over a number of years to coincide with retirement plansThe balance will remain at the same level throughout the termBeneficiaries will know the exact amount to be repaid to the lender at the end of the plan
