The value of your home, minus any outstanding mortgage and any other loans secured against it, is the equity you have in your property. This equity is often passed on as an inheritance, however an increasing number of people are tapping into some of this wealth to help boost their retirement ﬁnances.
After years of working hard to make monthly repayments, your home is likely to be your biggest asset, particularly if you have beneﬁted from an increase in house prices over the last few decades. Tens of thousands of people are already enjoying the beneﬁts of unlocking some of the cash from their home. It’s not suitable for everyone, which is why it’s important to get expert equity release advice before you make a decision.
We understand equity release isn’t for everyone, and we’ll never say it’s the right option for you unless we’re certain. A lifetime mortgage is a loan secured against your property. With a lifetime mortgage there are typically no monthly repayments to make as the loan, plus roll up interest, is repaid when the plan comes to an end. Usually, that’s when you, or the last remaining applicant, either passes away or moves into long-term care. With a lifetime mortgage you’ll still retain full ownership of your home.
Equity release will reduce the value of your estate and may affect your entitlement to means tested benefits.
Unless you decide to go ahead, our service is completely free of charge, as our fixed advice fee of £1,295 would only be payable on completion of a plan.
Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.
There may be a fee for mortgage advice. The actual amount you pay will depend upon your circumstances. The fee is up to 1% but a typical fee is 0.3% of the amount borrowed.
