Equity release

Equity release

Equity release is a way of taking equity from your home using a lifetime mortgage. It can be an effective way to release funds to pay for care in later life, or to adapt your home so that it’s suitable for home care. The funds can also be used as a way to gift money to your children. It can even be a way of increasing your income, so that funds are released annually over time, instead of in one lump sum.

This form of lending is most suitable for those over 65, however, it’s possible to do this if you are over 55. It is important to understand that these are lifetime mortgages. To understand their features and risks, you will need to have a personalised illustration. We have access to the whole of the market and provide unbiased advice, even if the best thing for you is to downsize to release equity.

"Due to poor health, I decided to retire at 58 and asked Mark to develop my retirement plan. Mark provided a number of options for my retirement, and after discussing these with Mark we decided on and implemented the preferred course of action. "

"I was looking for pensions advice and Mark was recommended to me by a friend. His advice was clear and informative; I have very little understanding of financial jargon and he was very patient and answered all my questions. He kept me informed of progress along the way and explained the best way to manage my pensions; which ones to leave as is, and which ones to transfer to a better scheme. I will certainly use him for any further financial advice in the future."
