What is Equity Release?

Equity release refers to a range of products that allow you to access the equity (or wealth) tied up in your home if you are 55 or above. You can release funds as a lump, in smaller amounts or as a combination of the two. There are two main equity release options:

Lifetime mortgage

A lifetime mortgage allows you to take out a mortgage on your property while still holding ownership. It’s a means of boosting your income in later life with a loan against your home, but you must repay it when you die or move out of your home into long-term care. There are also options using Concessionary purchase mortgages and specialist brokers in that area.

Home reversion

You sell all or part of your property to a home reversion provider at less than its market value, in return for a tax-free lump sum, a regular income or both. You can continue living in the property until you die, rent-free, however, you must maintain and insure it.
