Equity release explained

Equity release lets homeowners aged 55 or over access a tax-free sum corresponding to the value of their home. The amount released depends on the homeowner’s age and the property’s value. You will still own your home, you are not required to move out and you do not have to make monthly mortgage payments - unless you want to.

A lifetime mortgage is a safe option for meeting these needs without compromising your retirement savings. Your lender may allow you to protect a portion of your property’s value. This amount is subtracted from the total valuation of your home before you receive the loan.

*If you give some of the money from the equity release to your children, they may have to pay Inheritance Tax in the future. Always seek expert advice when considering this as an option.
