Providing individual mortgage advice; unique to you
Equity Release products are designed for people over 55 to take cash value from their homes without having to move. There is a wide range of Equity Release products which can provide a valuable source of income for some people.
These schemes allow the borrower to stay in their home and benefit from the cash released from the equity of their property until certain events occur for example moving into long-term care or death. At this point the lender will be repaid, usually through the sale of the property.
There are different types of Equity Release Scheme, some of which mean ownership or part-ownership of the property passes to the Equity Release provider and others where a cash sum is drawn from a promise to repay the lender on the sale of the property. It is important if you are considering an Equity Release scheme to understand the differences between these scheme types and this is something we can help you with.

We will help you understand if it is the right option for you, so please get in touch if you are considering an Equity Release scheme. We are experts in this market and will make sure you receive the right advice.
A Lifetime Mortgage will reduce the value of your estate and may affect your entitlement to means-tested benefits and tax status. The impact of not servicing monthly interest payments on a Lifetime Mortgage is that the outstanding debt can grow rapidly, thus reducing the value of your estate. For example, if the interest rate was 7% a year, a £50,000 loan would double to £100,000 after 10 years assuming no repayments are made. This is an example for illustrative purposes only and personalised advice and recommendations should be sought from a qualified professional. You are strongly advised to register a lasting power of attorney. This will allow your affairs to be managed by somebody else if your mental abilities significantly decline.
AN EQUITY RELEASE PRODUCT WILL REDUCE THE VALUE OF YOUR ESTATE, WILL NOT BE SUITABLE FOR EVERYONE AND MAY AFFECT YOUR ENTITLEMENT TO STATE BENEFITS. TO UNDERSTAND THE FEATURES AND RISKS PLEASE ASK FOR A PERSONALISED ILLUSTRATION.
