Underperforming endowments have left many people aged over 50 with interest-only mortgages facing an average shortfall of £49,000, according to The Saga Equity Release Advice Service.
Half of the 8,000 over-50s interviewed by Saga say they have not moved home for more than 20 years but a quarter add that they will have to sell their home to make up for the shortfall from their endowment policy.
One in 13 of those facing a shortfall have bought themselves some extra time by extending their mortgage, while a third plan to dip into their savings to pay off their mortgage. Around one in ten don't know what they will do to pay the outstanding balance on their home."
