Whether you’re looking to help a family member with university fees, go on a once-in-a-lifetime holiday or renovate your home, equity release could be the solution you have been searching for.
Equity release works by unlocking some of the money tied up in the value of your home. These funds are tax-free and can be used in a variety of ways.
Allow us to help you with some advice on equity release. The two types for you to consider are a lifetime mortgage or home reversion.
If you are a homeowner aged 55 and over with a minimum property value of £70,000, you could be eligible for a lifetime mortgage, the most popular form of equity release. This is a loan secured against your home. It will allow you to gain access to some of the funds that are tied up in the value of your property, yet you will still retain full ownership of your home.
With a lifetime mortgage there are typically no monthly repayments to make as the loan, plus roll up interest, is repaid when the plan comes to an end. Our independent equity release advisers will be able to let you know whether this is the most suitable option for you.
If you’re 65 or over, you could opt to sell part or all of your property to a reversion company in return for a tax-free lump sum. You should be aware that the amount you will receive will depend on your age, property value and the proportion you sell. It’s also worth noting that you will receive less than the market value of your home.
With a home reversion, there is no interest to pay, nor any monthly repayments to make and you will be able to access your money in one lump sum. After your home has been sold at the end of the plan, the provider will then take their share of the proceeds, and the remainder will be left to your estate – if you did not sell the entirety of your property.
