What is equity release?

Equity release is a way for homeowners over 55 to release tax-free funds from their homes, without having to move. It is an increasingly popular way for people in or approaching, retirement to boost their finances.

It’s essentially a long-term loan that’s repaid using your home once you pass away or require long-term care. Until then, you’ll remain a homeowner with no need to move out. Whatever financial freedom means to you in later life – renovating your home, paying off an interest-only mortgage or helping your children – equity release is designed to help make it happen.

Entering into a lifetime mortgage (or any form of equity release) will reduce the amount of inheritance you can leave behind. It may also affect your tax position and eligibility for welfare benefits.
