A deeper dive into

Common questions asked about

1. What is equity release and how does it work?

Equity release is a financial product that allows homeowners aged 55 and above to release cash from the value of their property without having to sell it. It works by either taking out a lifetime mortgage or a home reversion plan. With a lifetime mortgage, you borrow against the value of your home and the loan is repaid when you pass away or move into long-term care. With a home reversion plan, you sell a portion of your property to a provider in exchange for a lump sum or regular payments. It's important to understand the implications and risks associated with equity release before making a decision.

2. Is equity release a good idea?

Whether equity release is a good idea depends on your individual circumstances and financial goals. It can be a viable option for those who need additional funds in retirement and have significant equity in their property. However, it's important to consider the long-term implications, such as the impact on inheritance and potential effects on means-tested benefits. Seeking independent financial advice is crucial to ensure you fully understand the pros and cons of equity release and whether it aligns with your specific needs and objectives.

3. Is equity release safe?

Equity release is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to protect consumers. Providers must adhere to strict rules and guidelines to ensure transparency and fair treatment of customers. It's important to work with a reputable and qualified equity release adviser who is registered with the FCA. They will assess your eligibility, explain the risks involved, and recommend suitable products from reputable providers. Additionally, equity release plans often come with safeguards, such as the no-negative equity guarantee, which ensures that you will never owe more than the value of your property.

4. How does the equity release application process work?

The equity release application process typically involves several steps. First, you will have an initial consultation with an equity release adviser to discuss your needs and assess your eligibility. They will provide recommendations and explain the costs and risks involved. If you decide to proceed, you will need to complete an application form and provide necessary documentation. A property valuation will be conducted, and legal work will be carried out. Once everything is in order, the funds will be released to you. The entire process can take several weeks to complete.

5. How much can I borrow via equity release?

The amount you can borrow through equity release depends on various factors, including your age, the value of your property, and the type of equity release product you choose. Generally, the older you are and the higher the value of your property, the more you can borrow. It's important to note that there are limits on the maximum loan-to-value ratio that lenders will offer. An equity release adviser can assess your individual circumstances and provide an estimate of how much you may be able to release.
