What is equity release? Lifetime mortgages in Rotherham

Equity release allows homeowners, aged 55 or older, to release money from their property. There are two main types of equity release: Lifetime mortgages and home reversion schemes.

The most popular way to release equity is a lifetime mortgage. This is a loan secured against your property that is only repaid when you move into long term care or die. The loan is usually repaid from the proceeds of the sale of your property in Rotherham, Sheffield, or Walkley.

We only recommend products that have an Equity Release Council no negative-equity guarantee. This ensures that you will never pay back more than the amount that is received from the sale of your home, as long as the terms and conditions of the mortgage are being met.

Equity release offers a number of benefits:

  • You can get a tax-free cash lump sum
  • With a lifetime mortgage, you still own 100 per cent of the property
  • Once you have paid off any existing mortgage, you can spend the money on whatever you wish
  • You do not need to take the cash in one sum – you can ‘draw down’ the money as an income if you wish
  • You don’t need to make monthly payments with a lifetime mortgage – any interested can be ‘rolled up’ and added to the loan if you prefer.

    Here are some answers to the most frequently asked questions about equity release.

    With a lifetime mortgage – the most popular type of equity release plan – you will always remain the owner of your property. A lifetime mortgage is a loan secured against your home.

    To be eligible for equity release you must fall into a handful of criteria. These include: You must be over 55; you must be a homeowner and own property in the UK; and your property must be worth a minimum of £70,000. The minimum age and property value will vary between product providers.

    Yes, an interest-only lifetime mortgage allows you to make monthly repayments. As long as you keep up with these payments, the amount you owe will never increase. Unlike conventional mortgages, the interest rate for lifetime mortgages can be fixed for life.

    Releasing equity from your home will not affect your state pension, but could affect other means-tested benefits that you may receive in retirement, including pension credits, council tax benefits, and savings credit.

    Equity release is based on your property and age and as long as you meet the eligibility criteria, your credit history will not affect your ability to take out an equity release plan.

    No, not if you do not want to. With a lifetime mortgage, there are typically no monthly repayments to make as the loan, plus rolled-up interest, is repaid when the plan comes to an end.  This is usually when the mortgage holder passes away or moves in to full time care.  If there are two mortgage holders then this happens when both have passed away of moved into care.
