Equity Release could provide you with the extra cash you need...


Equity release is a way of unlocking a proportion of the value - or equity - you have in your home in exchange for a tax-free lump sum. It means you could enjoy the benefits of having additional cash during your retirement, to spend on almost anything you want - and you don't need to move home.

The Moneyfacts Equity Release Advice Service, provided by MCB Financial Services, will help you decide if equity release is right for you:
