Need help with Equity Release?

Equity release is a “Tax Free” way of “unlocking” or “releasing” capital tied up in the property you own and live in, these funds can be used as you wish.

What you can do with equity release:

  • Repay an interest only mortgage.
  • Make improvements to your home and garden.
  • Help children and grandchildren onto the property ladder.
  • Enhance your own lifestyle.
  • Provide an additional income to help you in retirement.
  • Pay for care fees when a loved one requires additional care.

This list is by no means exhaustive and clients sometimes have other needs that they require additional funds for.

  • “We required a mortgage but due to our ages did not meet the usual criteria. Sandy found us a suitable product that fulfilled our requirements. Sandy was quick to respond to any questions we asked and delivered any and all information quickly and efficiently without us having to repeatedly ask her. Additionally we found her to be very amicable and pleasant to talk to as well as professional in her manner. We have been able to purchase a property with the product Sandy had found for us.”

Key points about Equity Release:

  • Equity Release is targeted at people over the age of 55, who are home owners and looking to raise equity from their property.
  • The market is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. We recommend plans which come with the guarantees, as outlined by the Equity Release Council, to ensure clients financial safety and security.
  • The plans that we recommend guarantee that you can stay in your own home for the rest of your life and that you can move home (subject to your new property meeting the equity release providers criteria).
  • The plans available these days are far more flexible, to meet ever changing needs. We will help guide you through the options to ensure the plan selected is the most appropriate for you, having established your needs.
  • No debt is left to your Estate – we only recommend plans which come with a ‘no negative equity’ guarantee, so you will never owe more than the value of your home.
  • Taking out an equity release plan could affect your entitlement to state benefits and will reduce the value of your estate.
  • Take appropriate advice – taking out an equity release plan is an important financial decision and isn’t right or suitable for everyone. Consulting a qualified adviser will help you to explore your options and consider how the different plans available might best meet your requirements, both now and in the future.
