Equity release plans offer a way to unlock some of the tax-free funds that may be tied up in your property. Whether you want to take this money as a one off lump sum or in instalments, after an initial release, will help to determine which plan you choose.
There are many reasons why you may decide to release equity from your home:
It could be to pay off your existing mortgage or any existing debts to free up money each month.
You might have your eye on home improvements or a holiday, but require some extra funds before putting plans in place.
Another great benefit of equity release is that you’ll get to remain in your own home.
There will be no need to downsize; you will be able to retire and live comfortably in the house without the hassle of packing and moving.
