If you are Property Rich, But Cash Poor? It Really Doesn't Make Sense

Over 55 and a homeowner? We may have excellent news for you

Are you sitting in a property that's worth hundreds of thousands of pounds?

Equity release schemes are aimed typically at house owners who find themselves with little spare income, but living in a property which may be worth a large amount of money.

The Council of Mortgage Lenders say that retired homeowners are sitting on £1.1 trillion of un mortgaged equity.

With an equity release scheme, you're able to release part of the value of your property in return for a lifetime income, tax-free cash lump sum or a combination of both... all with no risk of losing your house.


Most Plans Allow You To:

  •  Maintain 100% Home-ownership.
  •  All Money Released Is Tax-Free.
  •  Continue To Live In Property.
  •  You Can Gift An Early Inheritance.


There are two main types of equity release:

  • Lifetime mortgage. This is the most common type of equity release. You borrow money secured against your home. The mortgage is usually repaid from the sale of your home when you die or move permanently into residential care.
  • Home reversion plan. You raise money by selling all or part of your home while continuing to live in it until you die or move into permanent residential care.



Are You Still in Debt? Equity Release Could Be The Answer

In recent years, equity release is becoming increasingly popular as our older population is growing. It can relieve debt and substantially increase retirement income.

The highly respected debt charity, Consumer Credit Counselling Service (CCCS), does suggest equity release to over 55s who owe money as a way to pay back borrowed money.

However, although many use equity release as a way of paying debt, Saga ,commenting on their own research,  says "Our findings dispel the often held myth that equity release is just a last resort for cash strapped pensioners, when in fact people use the capital in their home to enjoy life, not just to get by."


What is Equity?

Equity is your current mortgage balance taken away from the current value of your house. If your mortgage is paid off and your house is worth, say, £300,000, then your equity is £300,000. Equity Release should not be confused with  re-mortgaging.

The table below will give you a rough idea of the amount some equity release providers may be prepared to lend you. For example, using the table, Mrs Davy is 65 and owns a home worth £200,000. If she took an equity release lifetime mortgage plan, she could release a maximum of £62,000 in cash. That's 31% loan to value of £200,00. (£200,000 x 31% = £62,000)

Loan to value (LTV) is the amount of the equity as a percentage of the value of the property. Providers take loan to value percentages into consideration when considering your application for equity release
