Different types of Equity Release

Ask how much you can borrow

There are two main types of Equity Release plans – lifetime mortgages and home reversion plans. You may also see lifetime mortgages split down into lifetime mortgages, drawdown lifetime mortgages and interest only lifetime mortgages. As always, professional advice will identify the type best suited to your specific needs.

Lifetime Mortgages

A lifetime mortgage provides a tax free lump sum and enables you to retain 100% ownership of your property. Repayments, including accrued interest, are made when you die and your property is sold. The drawdown option allows you to access the money when you need it; the interest only option allows you to make repayments to cover the interest.

Home Reversion Plans

A home reversion plan means that you sell some or all of your property to the lifetime mortgage provider. You can stay in the property, rent free (some companies charge a peppercorn rent of £50 per annum), but it will typically pass over to the lifetime mortgage company on your death. You generally need to be 60 or over to qualify for a home reversion plan.
