Equity Release allows you to obtain a lump sum or steady income stream using the value of the capital in your home.
The sum must be repaid at a later stage usually when the last legal owner dies or goes into long term care.
You may wish to use equity release, for example, to:
- fund your lifestyle
- reduce the value of your estate for inheritance tax purposes
- fund home improvements
- help your children financially
