Equity release helps UK homeowners aged 55 and over access some of the money tied up in their home The most popular type pf equity release is a lifetime mortgage which allows clients to access the equity (tax free cash) tied up in their homes. Clients can use the money however they wish and can choose to take the money released as a lump sum or after an initial release, in smaller amounts (drawdown). There are no affordability checks and the loan is usually repaid when the house is sold following their death or admission into long-term care.
Equity release has evolved rapidly from a niche lending option for the elderly to become a competitive, mainstream later life planning option, a sector growing faster than any other in the mortgage industry.
Customer demand is driving innovative plan features
Modern lifetime mortgage plans are highly flexible and offer clients more options. From inheritance protection features that allow clients to protect a percentage of their home's future value for the benefit of loved ones, to plans that allow clients to pay off interest, make capital repayments without penalty and access flexible drawdown facilities. Rates are increasingly competitive and no-one is at risk of losing their home.
To qualify for equity release your client must meet the following criteria:
- They must be aged 55 or over
- Their home must be worth at least £70,000
- They should be a UK resident, and their home must be in the UK
If they qualify, they could potentially release between 5% and 55% of their home's value.
