To our October 2017 edition

The market is just so exciting, it feels as if it is ready to burst, with a large number of mortgage advisers starting to bridge the gap between standard into lifetime to meet demand. Many lenders are recruiting, also solicitors are growing. Which is absolutely great as lifetime/equity release is no longer considered the last resort, but now a financial transaction that is becoming very prominent in the market. The idea of this magazine is to keep all sectors of people working in this specialist market up-to-date with an overview on figures, changes, and information that could assist clients to achieve their goals or even new opportunities. We hope you enjoy the read, if you have any ideas or suggestions that you would like to see or even contribute please let us know. Without the help of Pure Retirement and their marketing team this production would not be possible, as a club covering the industry we would like to THANK THEM on everyone’s behalf.

Education in later life lending

Retirement

By Paul Carter, CEO, Pure Retirement

Lifetime Mortgages are an increasingly popular solution for those looking to secure their financial future. Recent UK Finance research revealed increasing numbers of pensioners are retiring with insufficient income, many without paying off their mortgage and with limited savings, explaining why the demand for equity release is rising by a third year on year. 8,000 new plans were agreed in Q2 this year, an increase of 27% on Q2 last year, and lending hit a record £701 million. Demand is only set to intensify as the pressures of retirement income increase for the over 55s. According to the Equity Release Council, those making defined contributions of 8% will retire with a pension of only 15% of their final salary; only one fifth of what they would have received under the old defined benefits scheme. The pension tax introduced last year is a further cause for concern, where those who have saved for later life are now hit with a 55% tax charge on anything saved over the threshold limit. And with the recent rise in age for access to state pension, everything seems to be stacked against the comfortable retirement for which people work hard all their lives. Those with interest-only mortgages are particularly at risk, with almost two million homeowners unable to make payments on their underlying debt. Figures from the Council of Mortgage Lenders indicate that one in ten families will reach the end of their term, still owing the full amount borrowed with no plan in place for repayment. With the retirement landscape in such disarray, a recent report from the Council of Mortgage Lenders has highlighted the importance of helping today’s consumers

navigate the options for funding their retirement and the nuances of the later life borrowing market. The over 55s have never been more in need of support and a clear understanding of the options available to them. In their Later Life Borrowing report, the CML summarise the crucial need for customer access to information, guidance and advice on all solutions that may be suitable for their needs. There remains a gap however between the advice of traditional mortgage lenders and advisers in equity release. Customers seem to get either one or the other with very little bridge in between the two, and this is where the problem lies. Greater understanding is needed across the board, for advisers to be able to give their customers the best range of options that best suit their needs. And to do this, more advisers need to be equipped with the right tools and training to be able to assist. Education is the key to making all options available to customers, and that education starts with the advisers. Roadshows, events and webinars are increasingly on the up and often free for advisers to attend.

Pure’s own Back to School webinar series runs from September to November this year, with detailed insight into equity release and the opportunity for live Q&A with expert speakers from the market. It’s not just about bringing advisers into the market however. It’s about the consistent provision of support for them once they are actively advising in equity release, and there have been numerous initiatives by lenders and clubs alike over the past 2 years, to make this an actuality. Online portal improvements from Pure Retirement and Retirement Advantage are the most recent examples of this, offering online applications and case tracking resources for advisers to simplify the day to day of their businesses. Marketing resources for advisers to improve communication with their customers have also been made readily available by the likes of Pure, Aviva and Just Retirement. With the right level of support, advisers will be able to confidently understand and embrace the option of equity release with their clients as a potential solution for their retirement needs, allowing them the financial resources for the future they deserve.


The Equity Release Council and Mortgage Business Expo are joining forces at the London Expo in October Weds 11th Oct 2017 The Mortgage Business Expo will take place on Wednesday 11th October in Hall 2 of London’s Barbican Centre in London. The 2017 Expo builds on the hugely successful, and busy, MBE London held in October 2016 including free CII CPD accredited seminar sessions. There will be a dedicated Equity Release/Later Life Lending Seminar Theatre with three distinct sessions, together with a panel debate in the main seminar theatre. The Council will also have access to a large open plan style stand with a central information area and literature racking. Council members who may not have the budget for a stand of their own, can join this open plan structure, where they can add a literature display of their own in an area within the stand, have a ¼ page in the event guide and extended entry with links on the website at a fraction of the cost of a full stand. As an alternative, should members wish to purchase their own stand, there are currently three stands around The Council area, which can accommodate 3x2m and 2x2m stands as required and the package includes lighting, power, a poseur table and two stools plus a ½ page entry in the event guide and extended entry with links on the website.

To register your interest in purchasing a stand or literature display please contact Mike Mikunda, mike.mikunda@clarionevents.com or 0207 384 7757, stating ‘Equity Release Council offer’.

New range of Buy-to-Let and Second Home Lifetime Mortgages introduced to the Equity Release market By Alice Watson, Head of Marketing, Equity Release, Retirement Advantage

Here at Retirement Advantage we’re committed to delivering innovative solutions to meet the growing needs of the over 55s. With the equity release market experiencing growth at record levels, we’ve listened to feedback from clients and advisers and have launched two new product ranges to meet clients’ needs. Our Landlord Options Our Landlord Options are a new range of products which can be secured on Buy-to-Let properties. The Buy-to-Let market is estimated to be over £250bn, and these products allow landlords to release cash from their properties tax free, leaving their entire portfolio intact. Clients can choose to service just the interest, make interest and capital repayments, or let the interest roll-up - and there are no affordability assessments on any of these options.

Our Second Home Options Our Second Home Options can be secured on properties which are available for the sole occupancy of the owner. The property must be used by the homeowner for a minimum of 4 weeks every year, but can also be let-out for a maximum of 4 weeks at a time. Like our Landlord Options, your clients can choose to make payments with no affordability assessments.

Product Overview The following options are available on both Buy-to-Let properties and Second Home properties;

Features

Interest Select Options

Voluntary Select Options

MER/AER 6.26%/6.44%

6.07%/6.24%

6.45%/6.64%

9%-34%

Payments Your client will receive a one-off lump sum and no payments are due. The interest is added to the loan each month for the life of the loan.

Your client can choose to service some or all of the interest. The payment amount can be between 50% and 100%, and the payment term can be from 5 years to the full term of the

Your client can make a contribution of up to 10% of the initial loan amount each year, without facing an early repayment charge

Product features

Lifestyle Options

Fixed Early Repayment Charges - £750,000 maximum loan amount - Free valuations, uncapped - No affordability assessments

Risks The Lifetime Mortgage will be secured on your property and you must adhere to the terms and conditions to avoid the risk of the property being repossessed.

Just - exciting new changes to our lifetime mortgages By Nick Brown, Propositions Manager, Retirement Lending, Just Retirement

Earlier this year we introduced early repayment charge flexibility. And more recently we added Lump Sum Lite to our lifetime mortgage range.

More flexibility for your clients We know that making decisions on equity release can be complex, especially where people are concerned that their situation may change. To help with this, introducing early repayment charge (ERC) flexibility to our Lifetime Mortgages brings these benefits: • The ability to make partial repayments (up to a certain percentage) immediately following completion, without incurring ERCs; and • No ERCs for joint borrowers, if repaid within three years of the death, or entry intopermanent care of one borrower. It’s important to note that these features only became available for new quotes from 27 March 2017 and don’t apply to existing mortgages.

New – Lump Sum Lite Lifetime Mortgage Lump Sum Lite is the latest lifetime mortgage solution from Just and became available from 26th June 2017. It’s been designed for people who wish to release a one-off lump sum, without the option to access additional money from a pre-agreed cash facility in the future.

Why choose Lump Sum Lite? • It usually allows a higher amount to be borrowed than with our Drawdown product. It may be suitable where the option to access additional money from a pre-agreed cash facility in the future is not required. A higher rate of interest will normally apply than with the Drawdown product. • Lump Sum Lite has lower loan to values (LTVs) and therefore a lower interest rate than our Lump Sum Plus product.

It’s all ‘Crystal’ clear As part of introducing the Just brand, following the merger of Partnership and Just Retirement, we’re changing our lifetime mortgage product literature. You’ll start to see that it not only looks different, it reads a bit differently too. To help make understanding our product information and other communications as easy as we can, we’ve worked with the Plain English Campaign to establish our very own, ‘Crystal Mark’ certified, Just language standards. Please note that as we transition to the Just brand some information will continue to be issued under Just Retirement Money Limited. We’re always pleased to help find a lifetime mortgage solution best suited to individual needs. For more information please contact our support team on 0345 302 2287 or email at support@wearejust.co.uk. You can also find various literature and information regarding our lifetime mortgages at www.justadviser.com.

Retirement Advantage’s new online application system By Alice Watson, Head of Marketing, Equity Release, Retirement Advantage

All areas of life are being affected by an increase in the use of technology, and the world of financial services is no different. Technology is enabling rapid growth, and we’re so used to having everything at just the touch of a button away that paper based application systems now seem counter-intuitive to many. Here at Retirement Advantage we’re constantly listening to your feedback and looking at ways to improve the service we deliver. As a result of this, we’re happy to say that we’ve launched our new online application system. This system is directly linked to our KFI Generator, to make the application process as seamless and streamlined as possible, which ultimately results in better outcomes for your clients. Our online application system has a number of time-saving features too. It autosaves every few seconds, so that you don’t have to save at every stage of the application and you don’t run the risk of losing an application that you are midway through completing. We also know that you might not be able to complete an application in one sitting, so we’ve designed our system so that you can log out and continue completing the form at any time. In addition, once you have started an application, you can switch the KFI it is linked to without having to start a new one. The system also features helpful tool tips throughout. These tool tips are designed to help you navigate the system easily, and also to help you to identify when a property may not meet our underwriting criteria. It’s also easy to see whether

12

you’ve completed all the mandatory question of a section, as each section has a status indicator which will turn green once it has been completed. If you’re registered with us, then you already have access to our new system. Once you’ve created a KFI in our KFI generator, an ‘Apply Online’ button will appear next to your client’s name and you can start submitting an application. From there, you’ll just need to follow the steps on each page. If you’re not registered to do business with us, and

want to access our new system, visit our website: retirementadvantage.com/adviser/products /equityrelease-system-log-on If you want to route your cases through The Premier Equity Release club you need to note them in section 2 of the mortgage club.

Is the client’s retirement income 53% enough? 57 % Want their retirement income to cover home maintenance costs

By Aimee Looker, B2B Marketing Executive, LV= Research has found that many people expect their income at retirement to cover more than the essentials. 57% of those planning to retire in the next five years would like their income to also cover home maintenance costs, 53% would like the income to cover holidays and 24% said they’d like to leave money behind as inheritance. As well as this, 17% would like to use their income to help their children or grandchildren with a property purchase and 14% would like care costs to be covered. Getting client’s retirement income to stretch to the extra retirement costs is seemingly more and more difficult. It’s important to offer your clients a solution that is appropriate to help your clients address their needs. Equity Release could be the solution.

Equity Release with more flexibility than before We have taken on board your feedback and have made a number of improvements to our underwriting criteria to enable us to accept even more properties than before. Our refreshed underwriting criteria on our Lifetime Mortgage Lump Sum+ product includes: • We're now able to accept properties with extensions of up to 50% of the total floor space (including the extension) • We're now able to consider properties above commercial premises, so long as the property is not on the storey directly above. Type and concentration of commercial premises will be individually assessed

Want their retirement income to cover holidays

• We've increased our maximum flat roof percentage to 50% where it is constructed from more modern and durable materials (but excluding felt) • We’ve simplified our service charge criteria for leasehold properties, introducing a cap of 1.5% of the property value*. Our team of equity release specialists can assist with product information, details of our lending criteria and can also produce equity release quotations for you. They are also happy to discuss individual cases with you to see if we can find a solution for you and your clients.

What is a Lasting Power of Attorney?

Why is it vital planning?

We are delighted with your service, in this day and age it is fantastic to be able to get in touch with the team so quickly and not be listening to on hold music for 10 minutes, it is a breath of fresh air!

Your client’s loved ones will be unable to move them to a different care home if they feel unhappy with the standard of their care

Paul Holman, Holman and Partners You provide a great service and your customer support is exceptional! When any of you say you will do something, it is always done and always in a most professional manner.

Doctors, rather than your client’s chosen person, will decide on whether to give or refuse life sustaining treatment
