Equity Release Mortgages
Your home is normally your biggest asset. As we get older and head towards retirement, our income tends to reduce and the equity in our homes increases. Releasing Equity from your home is a way of raising money against your home for whatever you need it for, such as repairs or alterations to the property, to helping family, to personal spending. The interest payments can be made monthly, or can be rolled up to free up more of your monthly income.It is a specialised area of finance which lenders require clients to receive advice and an area which we are qualified to give this advice for Lifetime Mortgages only
For Equity Release there are two options The first is a Lifetime Mortgage where you borrow money against your home but retain ownership of the property . The second option is a Home Reversion Scheme. This is where you sell part or all of your property in exchange for a lump sum, but continue to live in your home as a tenant, paying no rent. Interest is charged on the borrowing. Please be aware that by taking equity from your property in this way could potentially affect benefits you receive, and reduce the potential amount from your estate to be left to beneficiaries. We do deal with providers that have an inheritance guarantee which means that there will be a minimum percentage of the value of the estate that can be left to beneficiaries, if this is something that would be useful to you. We also have providers that allow regular payments or lump sum payments on lifetime mortgages. Please contact us and we will be happy to discuss your requirements to see how we can help.
