Equity release options: Lifetime mortgages for individuals near Canterbury

The main type of equity release is a  lifetime mortgage. If you are aged 55 or over, a lifetime mortgage allows you to unlock tax-free cash from your home, so you borrow a proportion of your home’s value. You can take your money all at once, or access smaller amounts when you need to, known as a drawdown mortgage. Interest is charged on the amount you have borrowed but this is not paid back until you die or decide to sell your property. You still retain full ownership of the property. Read our blog on lifetime mortgages and care in later life.

We are members of the Equity Release Council, the industry body that protects and safeguards the interests of consumers interested in equity release. Our Equity Release Council advisors will ensure we provide the best recommendations we can based on your requirements.

Why is equity release so popular? Our Kent equity release company can assist you

As house prices go up, many people are looking into equity release as a way of boosting their retirement funds. Many people pay for their day-to-day expenses from their pension pots, but what about everything else? Our equity release advisors work around guidelines set to look after clients’ best interests.

Is Equity Release Safe

There are many reasons why equity release is so popular. These include:

  • The money you release is tax-free
  • You can have access to draw-down facility if you need in the future
  • There is no need for monthly repayments unless you wish to make them
  • You can still continue to live in your home and own your property
  • Most providers offer 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 spend the money on whatever you like
  • You can take the money out in one lump sum or in smaller instalments
  • Your mortgage is portable, so you can move home, as long as you meet the provider’s criteria
