Prices have increased by 5 per cent from 2019 and from 8 per cent from their 2018 peak.

The reasons why equity release is so popular include:

  • The money you release is tax-free
  • You can still continue to live in your home and still own your property
  • All ECR-approved products have a no negative equity guarantee, so if your property is worth significantly less than your mortgage, you or your beneficiaries will not need to cover the difference
  • You can access money in one lump sum or have access to draw-down facility, where you can remove smaller amounts as and when you need them
  • The money is yours to spend on whatever you like
  • No need for monthly repayments unless you wish to make them
  • Your mortgage is portable, so you can move home, as long as you meet the provider’s criteria

Eastbourne lifetimes mortgages: What are they?

There are different types of equity release and the main one is a lifetime mortgage. To be eligible you must be aged 55 or over, and this product allows you to borrow money secured against your home, as long as it is your main residence, whilst retaining ownership.

When you die or move into long term care and the property is sold, the money from the sale is used to pay off the loan. You can choose to protect some of the value of the property for your family’s inheritance.

There are two types of lifetime mortgages:

  • An interest roll-up mortgage: This is when you are given a lump sum or regular amounts and interest is added to the loan, but you do not make any regular payments. The amount borrowed and the accumulated interest, along with any other charges, is repaid with the cash generated by the sale of your home.
  • An interest-payment mortgage: This is when you pay off the interest of the equity release loan monthly, rather than paying it off along with the loan through the sale of your property.
