Why should I take out an Equity Release Mortgage?
Equity Release mortgages allow you to release capital that is tied up in your home. The money released can be used to supplement your pension income or to spend how you wish.
What is the interest rate on Equity Release?
Interest rates will vary from provider to provider. They are affected by the loan to value of the property and the amount borrowed. Our advisers will explain the range of products to you.
Can I sell my house if I have Equity Release?
Typically, Equity Release plans will allow you to move your mortgage to a new property if you decide to sell your house. However, this might trigger an early repayment charge. Please call us to discuss this further.
Is Equity Release safe?
All Equity Release products are safe as they are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and governed by the Equity Release Council (ERC). With Lifetime Mortgages, you always own your home, and an increase in its value is yours. Furthermore, all Equity Release mortgages have a "No Negative Equity Guarantee".
What can I use the money for?
The money can be used for a variety of purposes. For example, helping your children, home improvements, holidays are simply to supplement your income.
