Equity Release Advice

There are basically two types of equity release; Lifetime Mortgages and Home Reversion plans. Both of these products are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. By releasing equity, a home owner can draw down a lump sum or regular smaller sums from the value of their home, while remaining in their home.

Releasing Equity can play a crucial role in funding your retirement and the flexibility and safeguards which are built into the plans that complies with the Equity Release Council product standards enables thousands of home owners every year to tap safely in to their housing wealth without having to worry about making monthly repayments.

If you’re thinking of releasing equity from your property then you need to find out as much as you can about all of your available options and weigh up the pros and cons fully before you decide if equity release is right for you. A fully qualified financial adviser will be able to help you to understand the steps involved and talk you through all Your Equity Release Options.

They can also explain the possible effects this might have on any  benefits you may receive as well as tax and your obligations, as well as explain the full benefits and the process of equity release. Done correctly, equity release should have no impact on an individual’s tax position or their state benefits; however each individual’s circumstances need to be carefully assessed.

What is Equity Release?

Lifetime Mortgage.

A lifetime mortgage is effectively a type of mortgage which doesn’t require making monthly repayments, but with some plans you can opt to make payments rather than compound the interest. The loan and the compounded interest are then settled by your estate either when you die or go into long term care. If you are part of a couple then the repayment isn’t made until the last remaining one of you dies or goes into long term care which means that are free to remain in your home for the rest of your life.

Home Reversion Plans.

Home Reversion Plans also allow you to access some or all of the value of your property, without repayments for the rest of your life. With a Home Reversion Plan the provider will buy all or part of your property by taking into account your age and your health. It will provide you with a tax free lump sum or regular payments.

It will also come with a lifetime lease which guarantees you every right to stay rent free in your own home for the rest of your life. There is no interference and no restrictions on treating the home exactly as it was before the Home Reversion Plan, a private home to reside in freely.
