What is Equity Release?

Equity release is essentially a long term loan that gets repaid using the value of your property once you pass away or move into long-term care.  Until you sell the property to pay off the policy you will remain the homeowner and can stay in your home.

If you are over the age of 55 and a homeowner, you are probably eligible to take out an equity release plan. The money you release is tax-free and yours to use. Plans come with many options and there really is something to suit everyone.

This could include making repayments to cover interest or a percentage of the capital borrowed, ring fencing a proportion of the property value via inheritance guarantees, or including downsizing options should you chose to downsize in the future. Our advisers at Retirement Income Solutions will be able to discuss your needs and objectives and recommend a plan that is right for you.
