An introduction to equity release

Are you over the age of 55 and want to release cash tied up in your property without having to sell up? Then a lifetime mortgage may be a good option for you.

A lifetime mortgage is a form of equity release that allows you to take a tax-free portion of the cash tied up in your home. The amount you can borrow depends on your age and the value of your property.

Unlike a regular mortgage, you are not required to make any repayments before the end of the plan. Instead, each year, interest is added to the loan. The loan and the interest are repaid in full, usually from the sale of your property, when you die or have to go into long-term care.

There are all sorts of reasons you may wish to release cash from your home including but not limited to: home improvements, supplementing your retirement income, purchasing an investment property, gifting to a loved one or making special purchases.

Independent financial advice should always be sought before considering any form of equity release as it is vital that you are fully informed of the risks and costs.

“There are all sorts of reasons you may wish to release cash from your home.”


Holiday home mortgages

Our research shows that many holiday home owners and potential holiday home purchasers are not aware that there are specialist mortgages available.

All mortgage providers will require you to put down a deposit and this can be raised in a number of ways including existing savings, inheritance, accessing your pension (if over the age of 55) or by remortgaging your main residential property.

We are specialists in this area and as Independent Financial Advisers we can take into account your individual circumstances and advise you on the most cost-effective and tax-efficient method of buying your holiday home.

If you are intending to purchase your holiday home with cash, you may want to consider financing so you can grow your property portfolio more quickly.
