Equity Release

Equity release is a financial solution that helps homeowners over the age of 55 access some of their equity without moving; however, they can also be used to assist with a new property purchase. There are two main types of loans available: home reversion plans and lifetime mortgages, both of which offer a tax-free lump sum or regular income while retaining home ownership.

Why Consider Equity Release?

Equity release loans are a flexible and convenient way for borrowers nearing or already retired to access some of their equity, enabling them to make major purchases, move home, or supplement their retirement income. Our equity release specialists ensure that you make informed decisions that meet your long-term financial health and lifestyle requirements.

Tap into Your Home's Equity: Understanding Equity Release

Equity release can be beneficial for a variety of reasons:

Access To Cash

It allows homeowners to unlock some of the cash value of their property, providing financial freedom in retirement.

Financial Flexibility

The funds can be used for any purpose, such as home improvements, purchasing a new car, supplementing your monthly retirement income, or raising funds to gift to family members.

No Monthly Payment

For most plans, there are no monthly repayments; the loan, plus interest, is repaid when your property is eventually sold.

Stay In Your Home

Equity release allows you to continue living in your home while accessing some of its value.
