Switching could save you thousands

If you have already taken out an equity release plan you may find that, as average interest rates for equity release plans have dropped in recent years, your current rate is no longer competitive. This means that you might benefit from swapping your current plan to a more competitive one.

 

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 inheritance protection or 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.


You can find out if you can switch your plan without it costing you a penny by talking to one of our expert equity release advisers. All our equity release advice relates to our range of Key branded products only and our fixed advice fee of £599 is only payable on completion.

Call now on 0808 252 9768.

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

  • You have to get advice before releasing tax-free cash from your home - please read all our information and make sure it’s right for you
  • All of our plans meet the Equity Release Council standards and come with several protections, including the no negative equity guarantee, which means you’ll never owe more than your home’s value
  • Key Equity Release offer lifetime mortgages only, which is a loan secured against your home. It will reduce the value of your estate and may affect your entitlement to means tested benefits.
