Equity release is a way of releasing the wealth tied up in your property, without having to sell it and move to another home. You could choose to either borrow against the value of your home or sell all or part of it in exchange for a lump sum or regular monthly income. It may also be possible to take further monies from your property at a later date, if required.

Equity release is designed to help customers over the age of 55 who either own their property outright, or have small mortgages left to pay.

Disclaimers:

Equity release will reduce the value of your estate and can affect your eligibility for means tested benefits.
