When it comes to equity release, we all have questions.
What, for instance, is it exactly?
Equity release is a way for homeowners over 55, whose property is worth at least £70,000, to release tax-free cash from their homes. It is an increasingly popular way for people in, or approaching, retirement to boost their finances.
And will we still own our home?
Yes – and with Key’s plans you can stay in it for as long as you like.
Will we have to make monthly repayments?
No, not unless you want to. The loan, plus rolled-up interest, will be paid back when your plan comes to an end.
Could our family inherit the debt?
No – all of Key plans come with a ‘no negative equity’ guarantee, so you’ll never owe more than your home is worth and there’ll never be a debt for your family to take on.
How much can we release?
This depends on your age, how much your house is worth and your general health. On average, Key customers have had access to £90,000.
What do people usually use the money for?
Key customers spend the tax-free cash on many different things, such as repaying existing debts, travel and home improvements.
Is equity release safe?
Yes. You need to receive qualified advice before committing to equity release, which is exactly what you get from Key. We are members of the Equity Release Council and authorised and regulated by, the Financial Conduct Authority.
