Use this lifetime mortgage calculator to quickly estimate how much you could borrow based on the value of your home.

## How to Use the Lifetime Mortgage Calculator

Follow these steps to use the calculator:

- Enter the current value of your property in the “Property Value” field.
- Input the expected interest rate in the “Interest Rate” field as a percentage.
- Enter the initial loan amount you wish to borrow in the “Initial Loan Amount” field.
- Specify the duration of the loan in years in the “Duration (Years)” field.
- Provide your current age in the “Your Age” field.
- Click the “Calculate” button to determine the projected amount you will owe at the end of the loan period.

## How the Calculator Works

The calculator determines the final amount owed by applying the compound interest formula to the initial loan amount. The formula used is:

`Final Amount = Initial Loan * (1 + (Interest Rate / 100))^Duration`

Where:

**Initial Loan:**The initial amount borrowed.**Interest Rate:**The annual interest rate as a percentage.**Duration:**The number of years the loan will last.

## Limitations

This calculator assumes that the interest rate remains constant over the loan period and does not take into account any potential fees, taxes, or changes in interest rates. Always consult a financial advisor for accurate and personalized advice.
