It’s important to remember that:

  •  although your equity release loan will be growing, hopefully so will the value of your property.
  • you can pay the interest each month to with an interest only lifetime mortgage so that your loan amount remains the same.
  • if you take out a drawdown lifetime mortgage you only pay interest on the money released.

You can find out instantly how much you could release.

It’s not all about rate – other factors to compare

Rate is important, but actually matching you to a plan that will match your requirements now and in the future is even more so.

Modern day equity release plans are not all the same – many come with a range of ‘features’. So if you want to guarantee an inheritance, make voluntary repayments or downsize in the future it’s important that the plan you are recommended reflects that.

With hundreds to choose from it’s imperative that you get advice from a fully qualified adviser with industry-specific experience. They will ask you the right questions to fully understand your current financial position and needs for the future. By doing so you will:

  • Pay only the interest that you need to.
  • Be protected for any changes in the future.
  • Release the correct amount.
  • Have the flexibility to make payments (or stop) as your finances change.
  • Explore and understand your options and alternatives.

Equity release plans to compare

There are two main types of equity release plans – lifetime mortgage and home reversion:

Lifetime mortgage

You take out a mortgage secured on your property while retaining ownership. The loan amount and any accrued interest is paid back when you pass away or when you move into long-term care. Most people who take out equity release use a lifetime mortgage. In the same way ordinary mortgages vary from lender to lender, so do lifetime mortgages.

Explore lifetime mortgages

Home reversion

You sell part or all of your home to a home reversion provider in return for a lump sum or regular payments. You have the right to continue living in the property until you pass away, rent free, as long as you maintain and insure it. At the end of the plan your property is sold and the sale proceeds are shared according to the remaining percentages of ownership.
