Equity Release, or Lifetime Mortgage, is the generic term used to describe borrowing against, or selling part of, your main residence,
to perhaps improve your income throughout retirement, provide funds to family members, or undertake Inheritance Tax planning. Sometimes
it can be for a combination of these reasons.
Lifetime Mortgages are designed to be open-ended so you donít have to repay the borrowing to the lender; instead it is usually repaid from
the value of your property after you die. If you are husband and wife, you can undertake an arrangement jointly, and it can continue until the
second one of you dies.
For anyone interested in Equity Release, it is very important for you to get independent advice from a qualified Practitioner in this field.
You need to understand the options available, and you and your family need to understand exactly what you are doing.
