How Does It Work?

Equity release allows property owners to take out a lump sum as a loan against the equity from their property. The loan is then repaid when the homeowner moves into long-term care or passes away, including any interest that has accrued.

Equity release plans are not right for everyone. You should consider your options and receive financial advice before making a decision. However, if you do decide to use an equity release product, our advisers will ensure that you choose one that meets your requirements. This type of plan is generally a long-term option.
The amount you can borrow usually depends on your age, health and value of the property. A surveyor will be instructed by the provider to secure an accurate valuation of your property. If there are joint borrowers, the amount to be borrowed will be based on the age of the youngest applicant. If you are of ill health, you may be able to apply to release a larger portion of equity.
Timescales will vary depending on the provider. However, as an average, from the day of case submission, 8-12 weeks should be expected for completion.
