Equity Release

Equity release is a way of releasing the wealth tied up in your property without having to sell it and move home. 

You can either borrow against the value of your home or sell all or part of it in exchange for a lump sum or a regular monthly income (although this is becoming less common).  Some plans give you the option to “draw down” further equity (cash) at a later date, based on your requirements.

It is designed to help those aged 55 plus who either own their property outright or have relatively small mortgages left to pay although you can use it to boost your borrowing power and buy a bigger property.

You can either take out a loan against your home or sell part or all of it to a third party who gives you the right to live in it for life. You can also pay the interest each month, pay part of it or add it to the loan and pay nothing.

If you pay nothing, the loan is repaid upon your death or if you move into long term care and are unlikely to return.

A lifetime mortgage is a long term commitment which could accumulate interest and is secured against your home.   Equity release is not right for everyone and may reduce the value of your estate.
