equity release

Equity release is a method of freeing up money from your property that you may wish to make use of during your retirement years.

 

There are a number of specialist equity release advisers that could help you with your search for a suitable plan, and it may be useful to speak to a professional before searching for a suitable equity release quote.  

 

If you are interested in equity release, you may like to consider the two main options:

 

Lifetime mortgage

  • When taking out a lifetime mortgage, you would take a loan against your property
  • This could be in a lump sum, or you may have the option to defer payments
  • You would own your property until your death or until you move permanently into a care home
  • After this, your home would be sold by your lifetime mortgage provider and the proceeds of this would be used to pay off your loan.

Home reversion scheme

  • This would involve you selling all or a part of your home to a reversion company
  • You would receive a lump sum and could have the option to reinvest this to receive regular payments
  • Your home would not be fully owned by you, though you could continue to live there as a tenant until your death
  • You may be required to pay rent to the provider, but this may not be necessary
  • The property would be sold by the reversion company after your death or moving into a care home
  • Your estate would receive the proceeds of this sale less the reversion company’s share.
