One Family is the trading name of the Family Assurance Friendly Society Limited, which is a mutual and therefore owned by and run for the benefit of its members.

  • Engage Mutual

Additional Information

The costs associated with putting a One Family lifetime mortgage in place are the valuation, completion, solicitors and advisers fees

All One Family advisers are members of the Equity Release Council so abide by their standards and safeguards.

All lifetime mortgages through One Family are covered by the ‘no negative equity guarantee’ which means you will never owe more than the value of your home.

You have the flexibility to move home as long as the new property meets your providers lending criteria. You may be asked to repay part of the loan if the value of your new property is lower than your current home.

One Family Equity Release Calculator

The One Family equity release calculator gives you an indication of how much equity you could release through their panel of lenders.

For example, if you are a 65 year old living in a house worth £250,000, the One Family equity release calculator shows that you could release up to £90,000.

In order to understand exactly how much you can borrow, you need to speak to an equity release adviser who will access your situation, help you consider the alternatives and then if appropriate, obtain a personalised illustration from One Family for you.
