How does Equity Release work?
Product innovation is giving homeowners more choice than ever before. Two clear options are:
Lifetime Mortgage - A loan is secured on your home, but you can keep living in it. Usually, there are no monthly payments to be made. When you pass away, or go into permanent care, your home is sold. The proceeds are used to repay the loan and any interest.
Home Reversion - You can sell some or all of your home to an Equity Release provider. The money can be paid as a lump sum, in instalments or both. It's still your home until its sold. Any remaining share could be ring-fenced and left in a will.
Having more options is never a bad thing; but it means there's more to think about. That's why you should talk to an expert.
