Pure Retirement Further Expands Distribution of Classic Range
1st September 2020
Pure Retirement today make their Classic Lifetime Mortgage range available to a wider section of the equity release market, opening up their market-leading solution for even more customers to benefit.
The latest expansion follows on from the widened distribution in February this year, and advisers are now able to access the products through major equity release clubs Advise Wise, AiR and Premier Equity Release club if they meet their qualifying criteria.
The Classic range is designed to offer ultimate flexibility, with customers able to make 12 optional ERC-free repayments per year, provided they don't exceed 10% of the initial amount borrowed in a 12 month period. Available to clients aged 55-84, it features some of the lowest lifetime mortgage rates on the market, and in addition customers also benefit from no upfront costs with free valuations and the option of no arrangement fee.
With an uncapped drawdown facility (subject to maximum LTV), customers can access funds to meet their needs, and downsizing protection is provided should they move to a smaller property in the future.
Early repayment charges are fixed to give clients peace of mind, and for joint plans there's a three-year window after the first applicant enters long term care or passes away in which the remaining party can repay the debt in full without incurring any early repayment charge.
Speaking of these exciting developments, Head of Intermediary Sales Chris Flowers says ‘The market has recently seen increased levels of activity, with consumer interest gradually returning as the world enters its new norm. With a predicted sharp rise in activity for the latter half of the year it's more important than ever to be able to offer market-leading products, and widening the distribution of our Classic range underlines our commitment to that. It comes off the back of the launch of our Freedom 40 range earlier this year, further highlighting our dedication to continued development and innovation even in the most trying of circumstances.’
