What is an Equity Release Scheme?

There are two types of equity release scheme

Lifetime mortgages

A lifetime mortgage is a loan secured on your home for a percentage of its value. You remain the homeowner but the loan and any interest that accumulates on it is repaid through the sale of your property when you die or move into a care home. How much exactly you can borrow depends on your age, or the age of the youngest applicant if you are applying for a joint lifetime mortgage. But you can typically get up to 56% of your home’s value.

THINK CAREFULLY BEFORE SECURING OTHER DEBTS AGAINST YOUR HOME. YOUR HOME MAY BE REPOSSESSED IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP REPAYMENTS ON YOUR MORTGAGE.
