Estate Advance

Enabling Executors to access up to 50% of
the value of the estate now

  • Aimed at Executors or Personal Representatives of estates. Can be used to pay Inheritance Tax (IHT), repair/ renovate property in the estate, pay legal fees or other estate liabilities
  • Available to testate and intestate estates
  • Applications assessed solely on the value of the estate, not personal circumstances or credit rating. No charges over property
  • Advance is repaid to us when the assets from the estate are realised. No monthly repayments and no early repayment fees
  • No risk to the borrower. As long as you have kept to the terms of the agreement, if it turns out your inheritance is less than expected you will not be required to pay the shortfall should there be one.
  • The Arrangement Fee (which is simply added to the loan) is 2% of the loan amount. The interest rate is 2% per month for as long as the Advance is outstanding, but we won’t charge you more than 30 months worth of interest.
  • In the following example this would result in a saving of £1,440 compared to other providers with the same rates and fees that do charge compound interest

Representative Example

An Advance of £50,000 will incur an Arrangement Fee of 2% (£1,000). Interest is calculated on the advance and the fee. Interest accrues daily, based on an annual rate of 24% (fixed). Assuming the Estate takes 12 months to liquidate, you would owe £12,240 in interest plus £51,000 in capital and fees, resulting in a total balance owed of £63,240 and a representative 26.5% APR.

Quick

Did you know that the average time it takes to distribute an estate in the UK is one year?

This can be even longer – especially when there is IHT to be paid. IHT is the obligation of the estate’s executor.
