Equity Release 

Equity release involves unlocking some of the value in your home, converting it into tax-free cash that can be put to work in many ways. 

Equity release is available by referral only.

These include repaying an interest-only mortgage, consolidating debt, carrying out home improvements, or even helping younger family members with a deposit to buy their first home.

Many people decide they’d like to enjoy a dream holiday or make some long sought-after improvements to their lifestyle.  After all, shouldn’t retirement be enjoyed rather than endured?

While equity release can seem like an ideal solution, it is not a decision to take lightly.  There is a wealth of implications to consider when planning a lifetime mortgage, such as a decrease in the value of your estate, and your future entitlement to means-tested state benefits (including Pension Credit and Council  Tax Support). 

Our friendly team includes a dedicated Equity Release/Lifetime Mortgage Partner, who works with understanding, detailed knowledge, and plain common sense.

Your first discussion with our Partner is always free of charge and with no future obligation.  You are very welcome to bring a close family member or trusted friend to the meeting, or if it’s easier, our Partner will be more than happy to visit you at home.

We can also assure you that no question is “too silly” to ask.  We want you to be able to speak openly about such a huge financial decision and to be clear, comfortable, and confident about the choices you make.


Is it for everyone?

We are experienced at helping clients decide if Equity Release is the best way to unlock tax-free cash, offering advice on how it affects future family inheritance.


Can I move home afterwards?

Most standard agreements will allow you to move the loan to a new property but there are some exceptions such as retirement homes which our team will discuss with you.


When is the loan paid back?

The loan is usually paid back either when you die or when the property is sold.   

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