Equity release - frequently asked questions

What is equity release?

Equity release enables homeowners aged 55 and over to access tax-free cash from their home value. The amount is determined by the homeowner's age and home value. Options include a lump sum or a series of smaller lump sums, depending on the product selected.

Is equity release a good idea?

Equity release isn't suitable for everyone, just like other financial products. However, it can be beneficial for some individuals by releasing the money locked in their property, such as for home renovations, gifting to family, or paying off debts. Consider carefully before using your home to secure additional debts.

Do you have to pay back equity release?

Equity release plans must be repaid upon the death of the last borrower or if the borrower enters long-term care. Early repayment is possible but may incur an Early Repayment Charge (ERC) penalty.
