What is Equity Release?

Equity release enables UK homeowners aged 55+ to unlock some of the equity from their home without the need to make any monthly repayments.

Equity release plans, also known as lifetime mortgages, have evolved rapidly over the last decade and there are now offer several equity release options to suit today’s discerning homeowners.

When the plan comes to an end (typically when your client passes away or moves into long-term care), then their property is sold and the loan plus roll-up interest is repaid in full. Any remaining monies are returned to their estate.
