Equity Release


Are you aged at least 55 and own your own home? Would you like to release ‘equity’ from your house to provide either a lump sum or an income without having to make any monthly repayments? Would you like to benefit from the money tied up in your home without having to move?


Why should I consider Equity Release?

 

Equity release is sometimes also referred to as a lifetime mortgage. It can provide a flexible cash facility over your remaining lifetime which could help you to maximise your enjoyment in retirement. In fact, one of the main reasons people use equity release schemes to release money from their homes is to supplement their pension income.

It is very important to seek professional advice as equity release schemes may work out more expensive than alternatives such as downsizing to a smaller property and can also limit a customer's options for moving house in later years.
