The Mansfield Building Society

Lending into Retirement

At Mansfield Building Society we offer residential mortgage lending into retirement.

In assessing affordability, we will use 100% of the gross pension income for our calculations.

Joint borrowers will be assessed based on you being individually able to support the mortgage. Independent legal advice and a Lasting Power of Attorney may be recommended or required as a condition of the offer.

For those looking to borrow into retirement there is a lot to consider. The Building Societies Association have produced a helpful guide for older borrowers giving more information on the types of options available and what to consider. 

For standard residential lending, the mortgage must be repaid before age 85 for both capital repayment and interest only mortgages. Where the mortgage is to be repaid between age 70 and age 85 we allow up to a maximum of 70% Loan to Value (LTV) for all repayment types.

Please find below a range of mortgage options for house purchase and remortgage up to 90% Loan to Value. You can compare more of our mortgages here or speak to a mortgage adviser who will be able to talk through your circumstances in more detail.

At The Mansfield Building Society we offer residential mortgage borrowing into retirement.

Our standard residential products allow the loan to be repaid before the oldest applicant reaches the age of 70, subject to a maximum repayment term of 35 years.

Representative Example

A mortgage of £72,500.00 payable over 35 years initially on a fixed rate of 2.79% for 2 years and then on our current standard variable rate of 5.75% for the remaining 33 years would require 23 monthly payments of £270.97 and 396 monthly payments of £395.36 plus one initial interest payment of £171.80.

The total amount payable would be £164,594.67 made up of the loan amount, plus interest and fee(s) totalling £92,094.67. This includes Application Fee (£199), Legal Fees (£255), Chaps Fee (£25), Completion Fee (£999) and Redemption Administration Fee (£150).

The overall cost for comparison is 5.6% APRC representative.

Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage


1 The Initial Rate is the rate available during the initial term of the mortgage. Once the initial rate term has expired, the mortgage will revert to our Standard Variable Rate (SVR).

Our SVR is set by us and is currently 5.75%, as a variable rate it may go up or down.

2 The Overall Cost for Comparison is given as the Annual Percentage Rate of Charge (APRC) and includes all charges incurred relating to the mortgage. The APRC is intended to help you as a borrower compare the interest rates on different products.

3 Like all other mortgage lenders, we will allow you to borrow against a proportion of the overall property value. This is known as Loan to Value (LTV) and is expressed as a percentage. For example, if you want to purchase a property at £100,000 and you would like to borrow £85,000, then you will need a mortgage available at 85% Loan to Value (LTV). The available LTV can vary depending upon the type of mortgage.

Shared Ownership mortgages will offer two percentages under LTV - the proportion of the property value and the proportion of the share being purchased.
