Equity Release in Gloucester

For retired homeowners in Gloucester, an equity release policy may be a useful way of freeing up any capital that is locked in away in their home. Customers can also typically free up their money without having to move out of their property at all, making an equity release highly appealing in certain circumstances.

These schemes are usually promoted as being useful for older people who have paid off the mortgage on their property, and are also retired. Although the money taken from an equity release can be used for a variety of different purposes, many customers choose to use the money to supplement their pensions when heading into their later years.

Equity release in Gloucester can also be used by landlords who want to use the value of their home to purchase a buy to let property, or by anyone that considers themselves to be ‘property rich but cash poor’ and would like to utilise their assets.

Equity Release Advice 


There are two main types of equity release available to customers; here is a brief explanation of each:

Home Reversion Plan
Using a home reversion plan, the customer may choose to either sell a portion of or their entire property to a provider in exchange for a cash lump sum.

Although the home is technically ‘sold’ to the provider, the customer can generally continue to live at the property for the rest of their life. Once they are gone, the property is then sold and a share of their assets will go to the provider to cover the cost of the loan.

Lifetime Mortgages
Lifetime mortgages are slightly different, instead of selling the property to the provider; the customer instead takes out a loan with their house used as security.

The end result is the same in that the property will be sold to cover the cost of the loan, but customers can generally only expect a lump sum in terms of a loan, and not a regular income.
