Equity Release

Equity release is becoming increasingly popular. It is available to homeowners aged 55 or over who are looking to access part of their property wealth, without the need to sell their home and downsize to a smaller property. It can also be used to help fund a property purchase.

The most popular equity release plan in the UK is a Lifetime Mortgage. Unlike some equity release plans in the past, a Lifetime Mortgage offers the borrower peace of mind that they will remain the sole owner of their home while having no obligation to make monthly payments if preferred.

These are some examples of why people may consider releasing equity in their home with a Lifetime Mortgage;Equity Release Council logo

Equity release requires paying off any existing mortgage. Any money released, plus accrued interest would be repaid upon death, or moving into long-term care.

Equity release may involve a lifetime mortgage or a home reversion plan. To understand the features and risks, ask for a personalised illustration. Equity release may impact the size of your estate and it could affect your entitlement to current and future means-tested benefits.
