Sometimes called an over 55 home loan, equity release refers to a number of financial products where homeowners, over the age of 55, can remain living in their house but release equity from it.

The property market in Dorset: Why release equity from your home?

Many people who head into retirement are cash-poor and asset rich. Equity release is a way of accessing the cash tied up in your property yet remain the owner of the property and never be forced to move. Understandably, many people wish to stay in the homes they have lived in for many years, without having to downsize to be close to families or the community they know. Equity release allows you to live in your home until the last person  party to the equity release dies or moves into residential care. You can of course move house if you wish to subject to individual lender’s terms – please read our blog: Can I move house if I have taken out equity release?

The property market in Dorset is subject to the usual ups and downs of the market but as a whole continues on an upward trajectory. In November 2020, the average house price was over £340,000. According to Nationwide, house prices in the South West, including the county of Dorset were increasing the most in comparison to other areas. Dorset has many smaller properties and second homes but also has many properties worth well over £1million.

The population is also growing and has seen a rise of 10 per cent in 2020. The county is not just popular with retirees but younger people are heading to its towns and cities for its gorgeous rolling countryside, stunning Jurassic Coast, and beautiful villages.  According to Rightmove, some of the most desirable places are Wareham, Swanage, Broadstone, Bridport, and Gillingham.

How does a lifetime mortgage in Dorset work?

A lifetime mortgage is by far the most popular type of equity release product; the other is a home reversion scheme. A lifetime mortgage is where you release money tied up in your home, while still retaining ownership. Interest is charged on the money you have borrowed and this can either be serviced monthly, or in ad-hoc payments, or be added to the cost of the loan.  There is no requirement to service the interest monthly like with a conventional mortgage, unless of course you wish to.

There are hundreds of products with many different features, such as those that allow you to ring-fence some of the value of your property to pass onto your family as an inheritance. In addition to this, you can choose to access the money in a lump sum or use a drawdown facility.

As proud members of the Equity Release Council, we only advise on products that offer a no negative equity guarantee, which means you are protected from your beneficiaries ever having to pay more back than the value of your home.
