    What is Equity Release?

    If you are aged 55 or over and a homeowner, then Equity Release is a way for you to access the wealth tied into the value of your house, without having to sell your property or move out. All money taken through Equity Release is tax free.

    It means you can put it to positive use to improve your quality of life, be it a lump sum for a large expense, or a steady stream of smaller payments for a more managed income. An Equity Release loan lasts until the house is sold when you either die or move permanent care, so it is a big commitment.

    Equity Release Mortgages

    Equity release mortgages are a range of products that are only available to homeowners over the age of 55. These products, which usually include either a Lifetime Mortgage or Home Reversion, allow the homeowner to access the equity tied up in their home. Equity release mortgages have no fixed term and come with a ‘no negative equity guarantee’, meaning that you or your family will not be liable to pay any more after you have passed away. Those who choose an equity release product can take the money as a lump sum, several smaller payments or a combination of the two.

    The Types of Equity Release

    Lifetime Mortgage

    This is where you can take out a mortgage secured on your property (usually up to 35% of its value), while retaining ownership. Interest will roll up for as long as the loan is in place, or you can choose to pay the interest each year to avoid it building up (known as an Interest-only Lifetime Mortgage). When the homeowner dies or moves into long-term care, the loan amount and any accrued interest is paid back out of the funds from the sale of the house.

    Home Reversion

    Where you sell all or part of your home to a loan provider, in return for a tax-free lump sum or smaller regular payments. Again, you are entitled to live in your property rent free until you pass on or move into care, but you have to agree to maintain and insure it.

    The percentage of your home you retain will always be the same, no matter how the value of the property fluctuates. You can of course take further cash releases, which will affect the size of the portion of your property that you own. At the end of the plan, your property is sold and the sale proceeds are shared according to the final percentages of ownership.
