The main types of equity release in Kew: How do they differ?

There are two main types of equity release mortgages available in Kew, Richmond Upon Thames, or Twickenham: Lifetime Mortgages and Home Reversion Plans.

It is extremely rare now for Home Reversion Plan to be a chosen way of taking equity release because it involves selling all or part of your property in exchange for a lump sum and a lifetime tenancy agreement. This means that you will never benefit from the increased value of the property.

The most viable option – Lifetime Mortgages – apply to over 99 per cent of the equity release mortgages that are arranged. As with a normal residential mortgage, this is a loan against the value of your property. There is no time limit or end date to the loan, which is only repaid when the property is sold following the death or moving into care of the last borrower.

Lifetime Mortgages come with many different features. You might be able to ringfence some of the value of your property as an inheritance for your beneficiaries. You can also choose to make interest repayments to stop the interest rolling up over time and reduce the total amount of interest payable when the property is sold. You can also choose to access the money which is tax-free in one lump sum or in smaller payments.

In the same way that ordinary mortgages vary from lender to lender, the same applies to Lifetime Mortgages, which is why it is so important to get the right advice.
