Customer stories

how it works

The Home for Life Plan is a lifetime lease, which enables you to save on the cost of your next home. You pay a one-off amount, that's less than the market value, to live in a property of your choice, without any rent or repayments, for your lifetime. With the Home for Life Plan you will:

  • Live rent, interest and mortgage-free
  • Be legally protected and have the right to live in the property for your lifetime
  • Have the option to protect and safeguard up to 50% of the property’s future value for an inheritance

When you pass away or move into care, some or all of the property’s value will return to Homewise or our investment partners, how much depends on how you choose to set up your Home for Life Plan.
