We can check to see what features you could get by switching.
House price increases could allow you to release more tax-free cash
Whether you took out your plan a few, five or 15 years ago, you may be surprised at how much your property’s value has increased since. This could mean you have more available equity within your home, which could help ease any financial pressures, now or in the future.
Alternatively, now could be the right time to switch to a new plan with better features.
Take advantage of the latest features
Different equity release plans come with a variety of features that you may or may not wish to take advantage of. There may be features such as downsizing protection that may not be a feature of your current plan. If this is the case, you may be able to switch to unlock these additional benefits. You may also be able to qualify for an enhanced plan, if you have qualifying health conditions, giving you access to more cash at different rates.
Our plans have features that can protect you in the current climate.
Should house prices fall from their current highs, you’re protected as you can’t owe more than your home’s value
Your interest rate is fixed for life, meaning you’re unaffected by any future rate changes
You can’t pass on any equity release debt to your loved ones
You can continue to stay in your home for as long as you wish
Pay off up to 12% of the capital of the loan every year without an early repayment charge if you wish to manage the size of the loan
See if you could release more cash with your current plan or whether switching to a different plan may suit your needs better. Your adviser will look at any early repayment charges you may need to consider.
Things to consider
All our equity release advice relates to Key lifetime mortgages only - a loan secured against your home
Equity release will reduce your estate’s value and may affect your entitlement to means-tested benefits
A lifetime mortgage may result in limited or no property equity remaining and will reduce your financial options in the future
The loan, plus compound interest, is typically repaid through the sale of the property when the last remaining applicant passes away or moves into long-term care
