But it doesn’t have to be that way because a solution to your financial concerns could be already sitting right there on your doorstep – wrapped up in your house. And it’s called Equity Release.
Equity Release is simple. You have been paying your mortgage for years, month after month putting money into a fictitious ‘pot’ which is buying the very house that you are living in. No matter how ‘full’ the ‘pot’ is, that money is still yours, except that rather than looking like a bank note, it looks like bricks and mortar. So now, you have the wonderful opportunity to convert the bricks and mortar back into cash and use in a variety of ways without having to move or sell your house.
With a lifetime mortgage, the most popular form of equity release, you take out a loan against the value of your property, knowing that you don’t have to pay anything back unless you choose to and you can stay living in your own home. The money and rolled up interest added on can be repaid from the sale of your home when you either decide to downsize, or the last surviving applicant dies or moves into long term residential care.
In a variety of ways! Most people who apply for Equity Release - the most common example of this is a Lifetime Mortgage - use the money to fund home improvements or that dream holiday. Some desire cash to supplement their income, pay off existing debts or to help their children onto the property ladder. The number and flexibility of plans on the market nowadays means there’s a variety of plans to meet your needs.
With a lifetime mortgage, you can access the money as a lump sum or use a draw down facility allowing you to access an agreed sum now and additional funds later.
You can make ad hoc payments, or simply allow the interest to roll up and it is payable, along with the initial loan amount, when the plan comes to an end typically when you die or move into a care home.
So, the excitement of the New Year and your financial ambitions could indeed become a reality.
Whatever the reason, if you are aged 55 + and own your own home worth over £70,000, then Equity Release could be a wonderful resource enabling you to become ‘financially fit.’
