What is Equity Release and how does it work?

Here are some questions we are commonly asked by individuals looking to learn more about Equity Release.

What is Equity Release?

Equity Release is a method of unlocking part of the value of your property into cash. There are no constraints on how the money can be used – you are free to spend it as you wish. For those aged 55 or over, you could be eligible to release equity using a lifetime mortgage, which is a loan taken out against your home. Your home remains yours. There is no transfer of ownership, and you can stay in it as long as you like.

How does Equity Release work?

Equity release allows homeowners, over 55, to access the value tied up in their property without selling it. Funds can be released either as a lump sum or in smaller amounts over time. The loan, along with accrued interest, is typically repaid from the property’s sale when the homeowner passes away or moves into long-term care.

What can I use the money for?

One of the greatest advantages of Equity Release is the money can be used as you wish. This could include holidays & travel, financial gifts to your children, that motorbike you’ve always wanted, or some home improvements. Also, If you have children, it’s a fantastic way of helping them get on the property ladder.

How do I release equity from my home?

Firstly, releasing equity from your property is a big decision. That’s why you should always speak to a Equity Release specialist before making any decisions. A reputable Equity Release adviser will take the time to understand your financial situation, eligibility, and will give you the right advice, tailored to your situation.

Can Equity Release be used to reduce an inheritance tax bill?

Yes, equity release can be used to reduce and inheritance tax bill as it reduces the value of your estate. However, we recommend seeking professional advice before making any decisions. Inheritance tax is a complex topic, and reducing or avoiding it entirely requires careful planning.
