What is Equity?

Generally you have to be over 55 years of age and of course have equity built up in your property. If you are then you will appreciate that your home is normally your biggest asset and the equity tied up in your home is now available for you to spend. You are now able to release a tax free lump sum from your property for you to spend however you wish.

Homeowners over the age of 55 can now consider Lifetime Mortgage and Home Reversion plans, which are regulated products designed to free the capital tied up in your home in a safe and structured plan.

You can raise funds for anything, below I have listed some of the main reasons clients would look to release equity:-
