Is Equity Release Right For Me?
Equity release is a way for homeowners to release some of the money tied up in their home, without having to sell up or move.
If you are over the age of 55, live in the UK and own your own property valued at over £70,000, then equity release can be a great way to get a tax free lump sum for you to enjoy and spend as you wish.
Maybe you want to make the most of your retirement, do some home improvements, clear debts, help out a loved one or take the holiday of a lifetime. Whatever it is, equity release can provide the financial freedom you need to fund the things you have always wanted to be able to do.
If you choose not to then you don’t even have to make any monthly repayments and the plan is repaid either when yourself or the last remaining borrower goes into long-term residential care or passes away.
One of the great things about equity release is that you can remain in your home for the plans entirety and are protected by security of tenure, guaranteeing you the right to live there for as long as you live or wish to stay. In addition to this, there are safeguards in place such as our no negative equity guarantee, which ensures that you will never owe more than the value of your property.
Equity release isn’t for everyone and you should always do your research and consider all options very carefully before making any financial decisions regarding your home.

What is equity release?
Essentially, equity release is a way for older homeowners to access or release some of the value of their property, without having to sell up, downsize or move home. The money can be issued to you in one lump sum or in small instalments and it’s completely up to you what you spend it on.
There are two types of equity release available. The most popular is a lifetime mortgage which involves a long-term loan that is only repaid once you pass away or enter long term care and the lender receives their returns from the sale of your property. The other type is a home reversion plan that sells a percentage of your property and the lender gets their share of the proceeds from the sale of your home once you enter long term care or pass away.
What are the requirements to be able to release equity?
Equity release isn’t suitable for everyone but in order to be eligible you need to;
⦁ Be over 55 years of age (youngest applicant if you want to apply as a couple).
⦁ Live in the UK.
⦁ Are the owner of your property worth over £70,000.
⦁ The property must be your main residence.
The amount you are able to borrow will depend on various factors such as your age and property value but the minimum initial loan amount for most lenders tends to be around £10,000 although this can be greater on plans for higher value properties.
