Things to consider
Our independent, specialist advisers search the whole market to find the right equity release plan for you. They’ll explain all the options available and that taking a plan reduces the value of your estate and may affect any means-tested benefits you’re eligible for.
You have to get specialist advice before releasing equity; it’s the only way to do it. The initial consultation is free with no obligation to proceed. If you decide to go ahead with an equity release plan our advice fee, usually 1.99% of the amount released, subject to a minimum of £1,499, is payable only on completion.
With a lifetime mortgage, the most popular form of equity release, you’ll still own your home. As with any kind of mortgage, it’s a loan secured against your home. All equity release plans we recommend have a no negative equity guarantee, which means you’ll never owe more than the value of your home.
Lifetime mortgages typically have no monthly repayments, as the loan plus roll up interest, is repaid when the plan comes to an end.
