Equity release refers to a range of financial products that allow you to access the equity tied up in your home if you are over the age of 55.  You can take the money in one large lump sum or in several smaller amounts, or as a combination of both. You do not need to have paid off your existing mortgage to access equity release.

We are completely independent and can, therefore, search across the whole of the market to find the right equity release product for your unique circumstances.

We are proud members of the Equity Release Council (ERC)– a trusted body to ensure good safeguarding and standards for equity release. Importantly ERC policy features a no-negative equity guarantee, meaning that a client will never owe more than the value of their property, regardless of how house prices change. You also have the freedom to move to a new house and transfer your equity release plan to another property with some plans.

What is the difference between lifetime mortgages and residential mortgages in KT1?

There are a few differences between lifetime mortgages and residential mortgages. We can talk through these when we meet, so you can make the right financial decision for you. As well as searching across the whole of the market for equity release products, we can also look for other financial products.

The main differences are as follows:

  • With lifetime mortgages, there is not a fixed duration. Residential mortgages tend to last for 25 years.
  • With lifetime mortgages, you do not need to make monthly repayments, unless you want to.
  • There are no income verification checks to ensure you can afford a lifetime mortgage. With residential mortgages, your income and outgoings will be taken into account before you are offered the mortgage.
  • Lifetime mortgages can have a fixed interest rate throughout the term – residential mortgages can have either fixed or variable terms but generally for a shorter period.
  • With lifetime mortgages, the interest can be rolled up and  paid off at the end.
