Mortgages for over 60's

Are you looking to borrow into retirement? Unlike the big banks we’ve been providing retirement mortgages to those aged 60 or over for many years.

The mortgage will be secured on your home. Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.

Retired or approaching retirement? We offer mortgages for older borrowers

Getting a mortgage at 60 can often be difficult. Many people find their current lender won't extend their mortgage term simply because of their age.

This is where we can help. Borrowing in retirement and over 60's mortgages is our specialist subject.

We may be able to help if you are looking to:

  • Assist family members onto the housing ladder
  • Purchase a property or second property for a holiday home or Buy to Let
  • Carry out home improvements
  • Find an alternative to Equity Release.

Why choose Family Building Society?

  • We offer generous mortgage terms for older borrowers with a range of fixed and variable Owner Occupier mortgages suitable for remortgage or purchase:
    • Repayment mortgages – up to a maximum age of 95 at the end of the term
    • Interest-Only mortgages – up to a maximum age of 89 when the loan commences.
  • We don’t believe in a ‘one size fits all’ approach and don't judge people by their age.
  • We have a common sense approach to lending and use real human beings to underwrite each mortgage case.
  • We offer Retirement Interest-Only (RIO) mortgages, designed for those over aged 65 who are looking to stay in their home and avoid downsizing.
