Equity Release

Specialist Equity Release Solicitors

Equity release can allow you to sell part of your property, giving you a lump sum or a regular income, whilst still allowing you to live there until you wither sell the property or pass away. These are available for those aged over 55 but are more ideal for those aged 60 or over, as the amount you get depend on your age.

It is important to remember that equity release can mean less available for inheritance purposes, unless you pay the amount back.

There are two common types of equity release: lifetime mortgage and home reversion plan.

A lifetime mortgage allows you to borrow some of the value of your home. On this, you will pay a fixed or capped interest rate but do not make any repayments. This means that the interests will rise rapidly as the amount owed increases.

A home reversion plan gives you a tax-free lump sum but at below market rate. You then live, rent free, in the property until you either pass away or move out. The amount you owe, which will be more than you borrowed, is then paid back on sale of the property.
