Equity release plans are a way for you to access the cash locked up in your home, to help improve your retirement.
There are two types of equity release plan:
Lifetime mortgages are the most common type of equity release plan, and work by lending you a percentage of your home’s value. Depending on the plans terms you may or may not make interest repayments during the term of the loan. Where interest is not payable, or not all the interest accrued has to be paid monthly, the interest that is not paid off rolls up, gradually increasing the amount you owe throughout your lifetime. The mortgage is repaid when you die, or when you sell the home and move into permanent long-term care.
All members of the Equity Release Council guarantee that you’ll never owe more than what your home is worth.
