Equity Release is a mortgage product which allows an individual homeowner over the aged of 55 to obtain a large cash lump sum of money or a regular stream of income, dependant on the value of their residential property. This loan will be re-paid from the properties value, usually on sale and not until the homeowner passes away. At Connect we are passionate about finding our clients the best deal and do so by having access to a wide range of equity release and later life lenders.
Mr and Mrs J in their early 70’s had an interest only mortgage with a term coming to an end. They had limited income from pensions and wished to remain in the current family home.
We were able to find a provider that was prepared to lend just under 50% of the property value which released enough funding to repay the existing mortgage loan as well as repay some personal debt. This reduced monthly outgoings for Mr and Mrs M by nearly £1,600 per month and meant that they were able to stay in their current home.’’
Equity release plans are not right for everyone and it is important that you fully consider your options and receive impartial financial advice before making a decision. It is also important that, if you do decide to use an equity release product, you need to be sure it’s one that meets your needs. If you’d like to end your lifetime mortgage early, then you may have to pay a substantial early repayment charge. A professional adviser can help you to choose the plan that is right for you. To understand the features and risks, ask for a personalised illustration. Your property may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.
