Can over 65s still get a mortgage?

Yes, you could still get a mortgage if you are over 65. But lenders usually set limits for how old you can be when:

  • You take out the mortgage (usually 65 but sometimes higher)

  • You finish paying it back (usually 70 or more)

This is because you are more likely to have retired or to retire soon if you are over 65. This means your income is likely to fall, which could make it harder for you to afford a mortgage.

How to get an over 65s mortgage

Some mortgages have higher age limits than others, so you could find one that accepts you if you compare deals from a large range of lenders.

You can also boost your chances of getting a mortgage as an older borrower if:

  • Your income from your job or pension makes the repayments affordable

  • You have a large deposit or equity in your home

How to get accepted for an over 65 mortgage

Compare mortgages that could accept you

You can find one using this comparison, which only includes mortgages that allow over 65s to apply for them.

It shows the maximum age you can be when you apply for each deal. Use this to work out which mortgages you are eligible for.

You also need to check the term you could take out each mortgage over. For example, if you are 65 and a lender only offers mortgages that must be paid off before you are 70, you could only get a short term of five years.

Most lenders do not offer first time buyer mortgages for over 65s, but you could get one to move house or get a cheaper remortgage deal.

Choose the best over 65s deal

There are several kinds of mortgages and interest rates you can get if you are over 65. There are also deals aimed at different types of buyers.

If you need help choosing the best one or finding lenders that accept over 65 year olds, you can get expert mortgage advice from a broker.

If you are 70 years old or more, you can compare over 70s mortgages instead.
