Remembering the uses for Equity Release is CHILD’s play

11th August 2015

My clients often tell me that there are so many ways that they can benefit from equity release, that they struggle to remember them all.

Equity Release could indeed be an answer to so many financial questions. The list is almost endless. However, in my experience, many of the uses can be categorised under one of five main headings:

  • C is for Children: Equity Release could enable you to gift funds to your children, perhaps so that they can get onto the property ladder
  • H is for Home: Equity Release could enable you to move to another property in retirement
  • I is for Income: Equity Release could provide a drawdown facility to supplement your finances when you need it, or an income lifetime mortgage could provide you with further income
  • L is for Lifestyle: Equity Release could be used to fund home improvements, purchase a new car, a dream holiday or holiday home, travel to see friends and family abroad, and generally to fulfil your lifestyle dreams
  • D is for Debts: Equity Release could provide a one-off lump sum to repay existing credit cards, loans, mortgages and all other existing debts

Equity Release could be an invaluable aid to all of the most important things in your life – your children, your home, your income, your lifestyle and your financial wellbeing.
